Kong Audio Present The First Complete Chinese Orchestra Library.
Being here, to be there
Erhu is a bowed instrument with two strings, originally
dated back to Tang Dynasty(7th century A.D.), and is still
being widely used today all over China in all kinds of
music, from movie scores to opera. It's one of the most
representative classical Chinese instruments nowadays.
It's also very popular in the whole Asia.
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
an unique sound character that's like nothing else.
For the musicians who are after the purist Chinese
sound, ChineeErhu is a must-have. For the musicians
who are after exotic and inspirational string sound, ChineeErhu fits
the need as well.
ChineeErhu contains extensive expressions of legato, vibrato, F-p-F,
staccatos, pizzicato, tremolos, glide and trills, cleverly woven and
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.

competitions), to capture

of various delicate Erhu
ChineeErhu II is a brand-
new recording of an Erhu
fiddle and it is developed
based on the feedback of
our highly acclaimed
ChineeErhu. With all-new
approaches to the
mic'ings, plus the planned integration with Kong Audio's QIN engine,
this time the focus is on the more realistic legato playability and the
clarity of sound. More Importantly, ChineeErhu II's sound character is
much more cleaner, yet more mellow. It is more suitable for
melancholic tunes with this incarnation.
ChineeErhu II contains extensive expressions of legato, vibrato, F-p-
F, staccatos, pizzicato, tremolos, glide and trills, cleverly woven and
programmed, the users now can play smooth legato performances

ChineeErhu and ChineeErhu II.
*Special note: Comparison.
ChineeErhu and ChineeErhu II have very different sound characters.
ChineeErhu comes off with a much stronger and thicker sound, whilst
ChineeErhu II sounds smoother and more clearer, yet much more
mellower. Each can have a place for different contexts, and
complements each other. Chinee Erhu II is indeed improved greatly
in the base design and the playability category though. Having said
that, some seasoned composers prefer the sound of ChineeErhu for
its instantly recognizable roughness, which is the trademark of Erhu.
