The Charango is a small Andean stringed instrument of the lute family, 66cm long and made with the shell of the back of the armadillo. Christian says, “This may only be a small file, but this is the big one for me. I sampled this in my studio (excuse the sound of Soho in the background), with my brother some 6 years ago. We struck upon the idea of “let’s make every note sound totally different”. The end result is what inspired me to talk to Paul about making our own sample library. I can’t believe I’m giving this one away, it’s like watching your first-born head off to college. It’s been a great friend to me, but I guess it’s time I move on”. This has been recorded chromatically with 4 dynamic layers and quite a lot of noise in the background!
