Ilya Efimov releases "Hulusi" and "Bawu" - Chinese wind libraries for Kontakt

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.

Features:

  • 240 MB converted NCW format, 44.1 kHz / 24-bit, stereo.
  • 2 natural legato types: normal and glissando.
  • 11 different articulations.
  • Realistic dynamic from p to f.
  • Two vibrato types.
  • Control of realistic vibrato.
  • Reassignable keyswitches and MIDI-controllers.
  • 3 modes of legato performance.
  • Detune vibrato keys.
  • Drones tune and volume control.

Price: €39.00.
