100% FREE VSTi – Cloudrum by Ample Sound

Ample Percussion Cloudrum Virtual Instrument by Ample Sound is free for you to download. Cloudrum (Affiliate Link) is a unique and relaxing Steel Tongue Drum with a range of 3 octaves. It produces wonderful tones, adds color and a unique moderation to your music, no matter the genre.

This Steel Tongue Drum on its own sounds absolutely amazing. However, I found that removing its sustain and shorting its release – along with some other adjustments – and then combining it with plucks from other synths is pure fire.

Essentially, the idea is to use Cloudrum as the attack transient of a pluck patch from any other synth. It adds a unique sound to everything and is almost always a huge boost in character!

Ample Sound Releases Ample China Qudi – Elegant Wind

Ample China Qudi (ACQD) is built on the latest development of the Woodwind Sample Engine, with 4.4 GB of samples, including head and body articulations, FX sounds, as well as a select collection of improvised licks.

The Artist

Xiaokui Ding (The principal woodwind player of the China National Traditional Orchestra. Member of the Golden Buddha Jazz Orchestra with Zhongruan master Mantian Feng, Jazz pianist Hongwei Kong.)

Ample China Qudi - Elegant Wind 63

The Instrument & Sampling

Elegant Wind series D key Qudi (Jianhong Wang Masterbuilt)

  • Recorded with 5 mics (Front, Middle, Back, Stereo Ambient). Each mic volume is adjustable and equipped with channel EQ.
  • 2 Mic modes: Modern and Traditional, capable of colorful sound designs.
  • There are 3 kinds of articulations in Elegant Wind – Head Group (blue keyswitches), Body Group (yellow keyswithces) and Special Effect Group (red keyswitches). Each group occupies one octave. The head group is used to perform grace notes at head. Articulations with more grace notes are assigned to higher keyswitches; Ascending and descending articulations are close together. The body group can not only perform grace notes at head, but also can be used for articulation legatos to express changes of the sound body.
  • The Dizi has great dynamic range and timbre variation. The sample library provides 5 velocity layers, with sound from mildly soft to bright and strong.
  • There are 4 velocity layers for Expression articulation, 2 velocity layers for Vibrato articulation, and real samples of Trill sounds. Together with SAHDS virtual modulation system, they can create vivid and realistic notes. Note velocity is used to control the start time of Expression and Vibrato articulations, to generate slowly developing notes or strong notes.
  • The sample length of the Elegant Wind is about 8 seconds on average. In most
  • cases, it can meet the requirements of a Dizi note. If the user needs longer notes, they can turn on the Sample Loop.

Intelligent Legato System

The Auto Legato System detects the duration of each note. For legatos whose duration is less than this value, only the straight legato will be triggered to ensure that no unwanted grace notes during fast performance.

Endless Articulation Legato

The Elegant Wind‘s body group can be used for endless articulation legatos. For example, you can start with a Sustain, hold the note, then play the Expression Keyswitch (C1) to play legato to an Expression note; then play Marking keyswitch (E1) to play legato to a Marking note, and then press Laying keyswitch (F1) to play legato to a Laying note, and so on.

Ample China Qudi - Elegant Wind 64

Creative Mirroring Feature

Playing the keyswitch when a note is sounding will reverse the sample at current position. It changes for example a Slide Up to Slide Down or a Slow-Fast Vibrato to Fast-Slow Vibrato. It can also be used to control the sustained body of notes like Expression.

Voice independent SAHDS Modulation System

Each voice has its own SAHDS modulation envelope. You can get natural and realistic vibratos while keeping the Mod wheel in one position. The mod speed, gain, and pitch can also be adjusted.

Ample China Qudi Elegant Wind Mod SAHDS
Ample China Qudi - Elegant Wind 65

Adjustable Wind Effect

The Wind is the sound of air blowing in the Dizi tube. We extracted this sound from each real sample to enable the independent control of this element. The sound of the Dizi without the Wind is very pure. Moderately control the volume of the Wind and make some changes during the performance can increase the feeling of “dirty” breath, and improve the realism. 

Other new features include sample skipping technology, random articulation, keyboard mode for playing chords etc.

Pricing and Availability

Ample China Qudi Intro Price: $109 until April 27 (Reg. $149). Ample Sound is also running a Chinese instrument promotion, 3 Chinese instruments and related bundles 25% off until April 27. A further 10% off for the loyal users.
