My digital piano has a "harpvox" voice setting that sounds rather interesting with broad echo and low overtones feeling even for the the middle or high notes. Is it a real instrument or an invention of the manufacturer? I cannot Google anything reasonable about "harpvox".

    Any chance you could post a sample?! – Bob Broadley Dec 11 '14 at 20:15

    My guess is that the sound designers took the words harp and vox (which means voice) and stuck them together to describe a synthesized, original sound. – Kevin Dec 11 '14 at 21:23

    Interesting: "harp/vox" is a sound name available on lots of digital keyboards, but not with any specific definition. So it's almost certainly a synthesized effect that's become semistandard despite not having a pedigree. – Carl Witthoft Dec 12 '14 at 13:06

"Kevin" has made a correct guess.

No. ;-)

  • It pretty much does provide an answer to the question. Is it an existing instrument? No. – slim Dec 19 '14 at 13:50
  • Something with the reference to this sound, how it has been designed and that is for sure computer generated, would be better. However as of having nothing else, I accept this. Probable the answer is really no. – h22 Jan 15 '15 at 15:35
