This does sound nicer than Cineharp, which for me was replaced by Project Sam's harp, but I still feel it's usable.
But no Round Robins? Considering many of the patches are phrase playback, I'm surprised with 12GB of compressed samples there is no RR, but I suppose most of that space is just ringouts.
The Concert Harp sounds great, but the rest is Fx phrase playback. The two extra harps and fx just seem there to justify what may be a bloated price.. "Harmonics are essential" - well then where are the harmonics for the other harps? How about anything else besides a pluck on the other harps?
My prediction is that the price will be $199, which they know is expensive for a single harp (see Elysium Harp or Glissando Harp) so instead of lowering the price they add content. "It's 3 harps!" - seems like an afterthought.
The discount for Cineharp owners (based on past discounts) will probably be $50. If it's less, or the price is higher than I expect, then I'll have to wait for a major sale. It's just sad that most CS discount coupons only take the discount off full price (not sale price) negating any sale advantage. Between this and charging me for updates to Cinewinds Core and Pro, I've lost confidence in Cinesamples. They won't even offer me the sale price on Cineperc Aux to complete my CinePerc (I have a coupon that sets the price at $199- which is current full price). So nice after spending thousands of dolllars with them. Thanks Cinesamples (I've sent them a few emails on this but never gotten a reply).
My CineGriping is over, perhaps I CineHarp on them too much.
