Kong Audio Release Ancient Chinese Erhu VSTi
The ChineeErhu

Kong Audio have added a third instrument to their unique Chinese Collection. The ChineeErhu is the virtual version of the ancient two string bowed instrument dating back to the 7th Cnetury AD (Tang Dynasty) and is still widely used in China. It'sone of the most representative classical Chinese instruments nowadays. It's also very popular in the whole Asia. Erhu has a special synthetic flavour which is drastically different from the Western violin. Whilst violin sounds like a splendid soprano in a grand musical, Erhu tells her life story in a hoarse tone from the dark alley. This gives Erhu an unique sound character that's like nothing else. For the musicians who are after the purist Chinese sound, ChineeErhu is a must-have. For the musicians who are after exotic and inspirational string sound, ChineeErhu fits the need as well. Three different genre of demo songs featuring ChineeErhu:

  • http://www.chineekong.com/music/Huangxu-lxy.mp3
  • http://www.chineekong.com/music/erhu_demo-horse_race.mp3 Kong Audio recorded the sessions with a distinguished Erhu musician, Mr. YuSheng Liu(who has won in several national/provincial Erhu competitions), to capture the nuance and brilliance of various delicate Erhu playing techniques. ChineeErhu contains extensive alternative expressions of legato, vibrato, F-p-F, staccatos, pizzicato, tremolos, glide and trills, cleverly woven and programmed to be used with MIDI aftertouch/modwheel, along with the keyswitch feature provided by the plugin, to bring the users the most lively articulations as easily accessible as possible.
