Ample China Erhu GUI 1

  • Sustained articulations have 5 velocity layers. Legato articulations have 4 velocity layers including Mordent, Straight Legato, Expressive Legato and Soft Legato. ACEH can produce sound from mildly soft to bright and aggressive.

  • Bowed string instruments have the feature that with higher velocity, the tone is brighter and cleaner and the duration is shorter; with lower velocity, the tone is darker and the duration is longer. If longer notes are needed, users can switch on the Loop function, which will keep the note sustained instead of reaching a natural release (only for a number of articulations). Polyphonic chords can be played using the Polyphonic mode.

  • Recorded with 5 mics (Mid low, Mid High, Front, Back and Far Position). Each mic volume is adjustable and equipped with channel EQ. Providing 4 Mic modes: AB, Wide AB, MS and Bright MS, capable of colorful sound designs.
