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 a unique sound character.
Kong Audio recorded the sessions with distinguished Erhu musician, YuSheng Liu, 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, 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.
ChineeErhu is available as a VSTi for Windows and costs $60. Audio demos are available.
