MOKARPA

is a bizarre and unique harp for Ni Kontakt based on a custom-made musical instrument by Italy-based guitarist Paolo Balestri.

He crafted Mokarpa using guitar strings mounted on a Moka, the iconic Italian coffee pot.

The sounds is harmonically rich, delicate with metallic resonances and with a dreamy flavor.

It’s suitable for fantasy soundtracks, lo-fi hiphop, R&B, cinematic and chill tracks.

The Kontakt instrument allows you to adjust the sound with a custom scripted GUI.
