Sound Magic has released Morin Khuur, its latest hybrid modeling virtual instrument for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit).
The Morin Khuur, also known as the horsehead fiddle , is a traditional Mongolian bowed stringed instrument. It is one of the most important musical instruments of the Mongol people, and is considered a symbol of the nation of Mongolia.
Sound Magic says that their new virtual instrument is the most comprehensive Morin Khuur sample library on the market. The samples were recorded at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing.
The recordings were created with 4 stereo sets of microphones:
- A close microphone perspective, to capture the detailed sound of Morin Khuur;
- A decca tree perspective, to reproduce the texture and dynamic of the Morin Khuur string section;
- A stereo set, to come closer than close perspective to emphasize details; and
- A stereo set that is placed above the audience seats to capture the full reverb sound of the hall of National Centre for the Performing Arts.
Mixing the 4 perspectives lets you customize the sound to your needs.

Morin Khuur is available with an intro price of $99 until June, 2021 (normally $299).
