Fretless Zither - Antique autoharp strings
The Fretless Zither  is an antique plucked strings instrument consisting of a sound box with strings going across the top and a soundhole in the middle.

To the left is generally a section of chord strings, which, when a set of these is strummed with the finger, will play a certain chord. To the right is a chromatic scale, generally two octaves, which consist of the melody half.
  • 4 Octaves of melody (last octave and a half and top half octave derived from harmony samples and extension of the top samples).
  • Effects (knocks, chromatic gliss).
  • Harmony (5 chords- Bb Maj, F Maj, D Min, C Maj, and G Min).

I've heard these instruments before, and really liked the sound. This VST does a great job of emulating it.

Thanks for posting this! How do you install/use on a Mac?

Download the Audio Units (AU) version. Extract and place in Mac HD (or whatever your OS hard-drive is) -> Libraries -> Audio -> Plug-Ins -> Components. Give it a few minutes and restart your DAW (or re-scan for plugins if that is not automatic on starting the DAW software).

As a musician you sometimes stumble upon plugins that's just an one trick pony. This is such a plugin, but dang what good sound it produces! There was just some strange distortion I heard from it once. Dunno how it happened.

Hey Johan! It's hard to believe this plugin has been around for two years already. That distortion occasionally appears on Maize Sampler projects around that timeframe. It has been resolved in subsequent updates, but I haven't had a chance to go back and update the fretless zither for a variety of reasons. -Sam/VS
