Chordophonet Virtual Harp and Hammered Dulcimer VST Software

Harp: The harp is a stringed musical instrument that has a number of individual strings running at an angle to its soundboard; the strings are plucked with the fingers. Harps have been known since antiquity in Asia, Africa and Europe, dating back at least as early as 3500 BCE.
- The pedal harp (also known as the concert harp) is a large and technically modern harp, designed primarily for classical music and played either solo, as part of a chamber ensemble, or in an orchestra.
- Celtic harp: The Celtic harp is a triangular harp traditional to Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is known as a telenn in Breton, cláirseach in Irish, clàrsach in Scottish Gaelic and telyn in Welsh. In Ireland and Scotland, it was a wire-strung instrument requiring great skill and long practice to play, and was associated with the Gaelic ruling class. It appears on the coins and coat of arms of the Republic of Ireland.

Dulcimer: A dulcimer is a type of musical string instrument. It is a species of zither. Among its forms are:
- Hammered dulcimer, free-standing, most frequently but not always trapezoidal in shape, with many strings struck by handheld "hammers". This type of instrument is found in many cultures, especially in England, in the British Isles and in the north of continental Europe. Most countries have their own name for the instrument, for instance in Thailand it is called a khim, in India it is called Santoor and many have different tuning systems. Being a struck string instrument, it is considered to be among the ancestors of the piano.
- Fretted, three or four strings, generally played on the lap by strumming; including
- Appalachian dulcimer, a folk instrument used in the Appalachian region of the U.S.
- Banjo dulcimer, with banjo-like resonating membrane
- Resonator dulcimer, with inset conical resonator
Other:
- Bowed dulcimer, teardrop-shaped and played upright with a bow
- Electric dulcimer, various types of dulcimer which use a pickup to amplify the sound
