Sound Magic has announced the availability of Legendary Hu, their latest hybrid modelling virtual instrument for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit). They tell us that it features theHuqin family, the strings instrument in Chinese Traditional Music. Here's more details in their own words...
Legendary Hu is a virtual instrument featuring the Huqin family, which is the strings instrument in Chinese Traditional Music. It includes Erhu, Jinhu, Zhonghu and Gehu. They were also regarded as Chinese Violin and Chinese Cello. This collection is the ONLY one collection on different Huqin sound on the market and it can bring more inspiration to your music.
Legendary Hu is our latest virtual instrument based on Music Domain Synthesis and Hybrid Modeling Technology. It runs under Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit).
Music Domain Synthesis is a whole new method used in developing digital music instruments. Unlike the sampling and modeling method, it can create digital music instruments out of "nothing" (not rely on an actual instrument in the real world). Music Domain Synthesis can remove the limitation on sampling and modeling, which makes it easier to build a new type digital instrument.
Neo Erhu and Gehu are the main instruments for Legendary Hu, which are also regarded as Chinese Violin and Chinese Cello. We also include Jinhu and Zhonghu sample set in this collection.
Legendary Hu offers far more sound-shaping options than a sampling instrument with five bands parametric EQ and more control over the harmonic partial sounds. This means you can quickly change timbre with a simple turn of a knob or tune every single note with the Scala tuning system.
