Ilya Efimov releases "Hulusi" and "Bawu" - Chinese wind libraries for Kontakt
4th April 2014

Ilya Efimov Production has released Hulusi and Bawu, the latest additions to Ilya's library of ethnic folk instruments for Kontakt.


The Hulusi or cucurbit flute is a free-reed wind instrument from China. It is held vertically and has three bamboo pipes which pass through a gourd wind chest; the center pipe has finger holes and the outer two are typically drone pipes. It is not uncommon for a hulusi to have only one drone pipe while the second outer pipe is merely ornamental. The drone pipe has a finger hole, which allows it to be stopped.

The Hulusi library can allow a user to imitate virtually anything that a real hulusi could play. Intervals were recorded for up and down legato articulations in two variants: normal legato and glissando. Ilya has provided the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. Natural vibrato may be added to the sound at any time. Staccato articulations provide added realism by means of a round-robin algorithm.

Price: €39.00.

The Bawu is a Chinese wind instrument. Although shaped like a flute, it is actually a free reed instrument, with a single metal reed.

The bawu library will allow you to imitate virtually that a real bawu could play. Ilya recorded intervals for up and down legato articulations in two variants: normal legato and glissando. Ilya has provided the ability to vary the dynamics of the instrument to convey a wide, detailed range of expression from pp to ff. Natural vibrato may be added to the sound at any time.
