Aspro Midi Harp is a project or... more than a project, a particular dream of mine, promoted by the Asproarpa Association, in order to simplify the way of playing the harp and, above all, I refer to the alterations: the work we do with levers or pedals (which most don't even know what it is for).

As always in these cases, many years of trial and error until I got what I wanted.

Although I was getting a Midi harp, I didn't exactly want to play with other violin, piano or percussion sounds but rather create a new semitone system that would make it easier to play works that would be very difficult - sometimes impossible - to play with the other systems.

Today, with a couple of years of experience with it, I am very happy with the result.

Maybe… heavy? 13 Kgs (28.66 lbs). I didn't think of it to be hanged. I can play standing with a tripod or sitting.

42 strings (I remove 5 bass; the treble are the same as the concert harp) and this - in my case - is very good since I did not have to change the arrangements of what I played with pedal harps.

It is a “midi” harp so it is never tuned.

In the DAW you use, you can adjust the tuning with the other musicians: 440, 442 etc.

It can be played “manually” or “automatically”.

The tension of the strings adjusts to your taste but it is rather a soft harp (not as soft as the South American harps) and it is advisable to play with headphones so as not to hear the noises produced by the strings.

But... since a picture is worth a thousand words, I leave here again the home video where I explain -more or less- what I did.

Thanks for your interest. Click the harp.
