Legato

In addition to providing true legato for every interval up to an octave, Uyanga’s performances are recorded in two distinctly different styles: traditional and Mongolian. When you need a fluid performance that comes as close to live as possible, this will likely be your go-to collection in this library.

Combo

These instruments combine multiple articulations into a single instrument that uses the Mod Wheel (CC1) or Velocity Sensitivity to determine which of the different articulations will playback. This collection is the best choice for real time flexibility while playing, due to the simplicity and speed with which you can make performance adjustments.
