Default Hollywood Harp

I was very surprised to see the harp excluded from the Hollywood series.

Hollywood Harp
A harp recorded in the same room as the rest of the Hollywood series with multiple mic positions and pristine detail sure would be useful.

Come on EastWest! An orchestra without a harp is like life without water.

How about hollywood solo strings?

Harp, double bass, cello, viola & violin?

Seems like a no brainer to me. Is there anyone who owns the hollywood series that wouldn't snap this up?

Doug has said that when the Hollywood Orchestral series was complete, he would not be doing anymore orchestral sample libs.

But.... is the series now complete? Or will it be complete when a choir is done? Will it be complete when solo strings are done? Not sure...

I for one, would welcome a Harp, esp. one that has many performed glisses.

Cheers.

To me it seems like a very big mistake to not include the harp in the Hollywood series. However, recording a harp outside of the Hollywood series is fine with me, as long as it has great glissandi capabilities, is recorded in the same room, and has most of the same microphone positions, just like they did with SD3.

I was thinking that a Harp addition is needed. I entered the suggestion box arena to see this thread has already started. So, I clearly agree that Harp is needed. I also like the idea of a Hollywood Solo Strings package: Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass and Harp.

But depending on how elaborate Harp would be, it could possibly stand as its own sample library.
