European factory ROM 1 bank B especially for sound 30 HARP 2

A note played while the sustain pedal was not hold will normally release 
even if the pedal is hold after the note was played, while any notes 
played then, with the sustain pedal hold, will be damped = have less 
release. This sounds nearly identically to Andreas Vollenweider's harp 
playing in the 80ies.

And because of Roland equipment, as Paul has written, the pads do have 
several places that might control different sounds and in addition this 
sounds have layers.
