Checking Out: Ample China Erhu by Ample Sound

by

This two-string Chinese bowed instrument has been created by sampling three erhus in different tunings with five microphone positions. Coupled with a huge range of articulations and onboard controls, this is the most detailed erhu instrument created. With all this in mind, the proof is in the sound and playability and the Ample China Erhu delivers this in spades.

Ample Sound have a reputation for making incredibly realistic instruments and the Ample China Erhu is no exception. After picking up my jaw from the striking yet easy-to-use GUI, the sounds and playability really speak for themselves. This is a deeply sampled erhu with thirty articulations, phrases, mic positions, and endless sound shaping possibilities. I’ve played many a virtual erhu and this really does scream to be played. In my opinion, this is the highest quality virtual erhu I’ve ever played. I cannot recommend the Ample China Erhu enough.
