Hey all,

I'm looking for a Mongolian (VST) instrument (MaTouQin - horsehead fiddle, aka morin khuur) and the only place that seems to offer it is here:
https://www.kvraudio.com/product/matouqin-by-kong-audio and is $40 from this Chinese site (not sure how safe it is).

The VST is also quite old (about 11 years) and not 100% sure if it'll work well in Win10. I'm looking to see if there are any other VST's from other developers.

Thanks in advance!!
SW
Thanks,

It should be safe. I have a couple of their freebies. Isnt there a demo version you could download?

Thanks Halon for chiming in. It seems their products are quite good and got very good reviews. Couldn't find a demo of it :(.

My inspiration to get this instrument came from watching this band as they use it on almost all their tracks:

No problem. Yes The HU is pretty cool. :)

Maybe you could just buy it then since there isnt a demo?

Yes, I think that might be my only option. However, I did get the Blakus Cello from Embertone and going to see if I can get a similar tone with that.
Cheers and have a Merry Christmas!!
