What makes it different?

If you were to go to the forums and look for opinions on what’s the best sampled celesta on the market, you’d notice that the Harry Potter theme seems to be the ultimate reference for the tone.

I’m not interested in that, nor in the Nutcracker suite. Helenko is all about highlithing the individual character of the instrument and the expression of the performer. It sounds fragile, moody and somehow dusty.

And yes, there is noise, because - contrary to what we’re made to believe - it’s there where you record stuff. If you were wondering why most sampled instruments sound like liquid plastic, this is it - noise reduction sucks the tone and life away. If you hate noise, I’m sure there are other instruments that will fit your needs better.
