Is it possible to play chords?

Each beam that you block produces a sound. The user himself/herself chooses which sounds (or effects) he/she wants the harp to play, depending on the device connected via MIDI cable to the Controller. If you block several beams at the same time you will hear the correct sounds playing (or see the selected effects) all at the same time which means that you can play polyphonic music (or create...

If you block a beam does the sound change if you move your hand up and down?

The Laser Harp Controller plays sounds just like a classical harp would. When you block a beam the Controller sends a signal that plays a corresponding sound. Just like a classical harp, it does not modulate a sound according to the movements of your hands along the string i.e. blocked beam. 

How do I connect the Laser Harp Controller to a laser projector?

The Laser Harp Controller connects to an ILDA-compatible laser projector via ILDA cable. The Harp controller sends a signal to the laser projector to draw an array of laser beams in a fan arrangement. When you block a beam, the sensor registers and sends a signal to the controller which in turn sends a MIDI signal , e.g. to the computer via the Midi to USB cable. We recommend to use either a...

Does the Laser Harp require that each beam has its own separate sensor? Do laser beams have to be pointed at some location or set into a certain position

A frameless laser harp means exactly that – the harp has no frames i.e. the beams can be spread and directed to go anywhere. They are not required to hit sensor units. With Prolight Laser Harp Controller there is only one sensor unit on the ground and it registers blocking of any and all beams. 

Can you operate the Laser Harp Controller while on-stage surrounded by other show lighting and laser projectors?

Yes you can. Laser Harp's sensor unit is programmed in such a way that it detects only the blocked light of the laser projector that the Controller is connected to. 

Are there any extra accessories I can purchase for my Laser Harp Controller?

We offer a good number of accessories to the Laser Harp Controller. Customers usually purchase a single or double footswitch with the Harp Controller.

What is a Laser Harp Controller?

The Laser Harp Controller is basically a MIDI controller box with a sensor unit that will turn your ILDA laser projector into a powerful frameless full color laser harp. By detecting the reflection of your hand while interrupting one of the laser beams, the harp controller gives a MIDI feedback signal. The Laser Harp Controller is fully compatible with Phoenix Live and Pangolin Quickshow...
