      "Here is a little surprise for you with the Solo Pipa. Pipa comes in around 1:00. Still lots to learn about the new instrument, but I love the intuitive interface and how smooth the responsiveness is of the samples. Also, the reverb, dynamics and other controls are spot on! The Dynamic data was picked up from another track that I copied to the Pipa instrument track as a test." https://luketruanmusic.com/track/2775723/your-the-one-for-me-with-solo-pipa

      "Super excited to play around with these new toys (Solo Pipa and Solo Zhongruan) by the wonderful people at @ix.sound!

      Only a couple hours in and I’m already loving it. There are a few pipa virtual instruments out there (fewer for zhongruan), but the amount of control and detail in these ones is blowing me away. 😍
      and of course such a treat to have Jeremy Wong's crazy powerful 轮指 in my library 😆"

      IX Sound's all new traditional solo instruments from Asia offers unparallelled realism and helps you achieve that, often sought but rarely found, authentic feeling. The samples are clear and pristine and the various articulations helps you sculpt a realistic performance. My personal favorite is the Solo Zhongruan and I can see this gem living in my template for years to come.

      IX Sound's Strings Of The Orient Solo Pipa brings forth a highly-professional sounding virtual instrument in an easy-to-use Kontakt format. I find the sounds ready to go from the start and have no trouble finding use for it in various production scenarios which require a Pipa instrument.
