Sound Magic has released Bamboo Dreams BaWu for Kontakt.

The Bawu is a Chinese wind instrument. Although shaped like a flute, it is actually a free reed instrument, with a single metal reed. It is played in a transverse (horizontal) manner. It has a clarinet-like timbre and its playing technique incorporates the use of much ornamentation, particularly bending tones. The bawu has become a standard instrument used in modern Chinese compositions for traditional instrument ensembles. The instrument is also closely associated with Hmong, Yi, Hani and other minority cultures in south-western China. It is typically used as a solo instrument, and is often featured in film scores; it is sometimes also heard in popular music recordings.

This over 1GB (500MB after compression) library is designed to cover nearly all existing performance skills of Bawu, with over 9 categories and 30 variations.

To ensure the maximum accuracy and musicality in the reproduction of this complex sound, Sound Magic invited the virtuoso from the prestigious China National Philharmonic to record their wide variety of sounds. Sound Magic has developed a simpler set of controls to allow the user to control all 30 skills on the fly.

Bamboo Dreams Bawu has been recorded with 24-bit/96kHz resolution using a Neve console, dCS AD converter and Beyerdynamic MC740 Microphones.

Another feature in Bamboo Dreams Bawu VSTi is its use of the Sound Magic Add-on System. With the Add-on System, Bamboo Dreams Bawu can become more versatile. With the right Add-on, you can even create an electric bawu.

Price: €79.

Sound Magic has also updated Headphone Mix for Windows to version 3.0.

Changes since v2.x:

  • Improved HRTF Algorithm.
  • Customized HRTF set to fit for different type.
  • Neo Reverb technology in Environment Simulation.
  • Accurate modeling on Signal to Noise Ratio, Stereo Crosstalk and Frequency Respond Curve of common used playback devices. Such as Car Audio, iPhone, iPad, Android smart phones and Hi-end HiFi system.
  • A better and more friendly GUI.

Price: €49.
