Hello FP90 (and FP90x) users,

I have to step in at the last minute for an orchestra concert and play the harp parts on an FP90x, in place of a harpist who bailed on us. Is the "Harpiness" sound on the Roland, remotely suitable for this purpose? I won't be able to touch ours until the rehearsal day.

If there is a suggested adjustment to make that a more realistic harp voice, I'd appreciate if you can reply with step-by-step instructions, because I'll probably have all of 5 minutes to try anything before the rehearsal begins.

Thanks for your help!

Well you have under synth pads 11 harpiness

Under synth/other gm2 124 harp

You can apply equalization and that is about it

Make sure the part volume sliders are all the way up

The use the volume slider

Good luck

Sorry I reread this. Harpiness is more synth like with a pretty large amount of echo

The general midi harp is probabaly closer to a harp.

Either might work playing in an orchestra unless it is not the featured sound.

Again

Good luck 👍🏻
