Chinee Winds contains various types of DiZi and Xiao,
and is the most polished instrument of the Chinee Series
that won Kong Audio the attention of the composers
around the world.
Ancient Chinese Instrument Enters the Modern VSTi
Dizi (bamboo flute) has always been a traditional and
popular instrument in China for many centuries. As an
essential Chinese instrument, it is still widely used
nowadays. It can be heard everywhere ranging from
modern Chinese film scores, to modern Chinese pop
There are many different types of Dizi, and now, with
ChineeWinds, musicians all over the world have access to
the most authentic Chinese flavor directly from their
Instant Exotic Flavor for Your Composition
Modern musicians have always been searching for the
next NEW sound to spice up the next big hit. Kong Audio's
ChineeWinds IS the answer to the search.
ChineeWinds includes two common Tenor Dizi, two Treble
Dizi, two Bass Dizi, one ChaoZhou Dizi, and one Xiao.
ChineeWinds is Multi-sampled, plus many expressive articulations
and phrases at your disposal.
Unparalleled Sampling Quality
All samples are recorded professionally in 24bit 96khz. Lots of hard
work has been put into the making of ChineeWinds, as you can
hear from the demo songs below.
Live Performance with Ease
With the KeySwitch feature, along with the ability to trigger various
articulations and expressions with Aftertouch and Modwheel,
musicians now can achieve a lively performance with ease.
NanXiao: the Melancholic Sound from China
Nanxiao (Southern Xiao) is a bamboo flute of the Xiao family.
Unlike Dizi, Xiao has no membrane. Nanxiao is mostly popular in
the Fujian area of southern China. Like the Japanese Shakuhachi,
NanXiao is the offspring of ChiBa and DongXiao from the Tang
Dynasty (618 - 907 AD).
Contrary to the upbeat, happy-trigger sound of Dizi, NanXiao has a
more solid yet soothing tone that blends into modern music easily.
For any composer who needs something different yet not really
digging ethnic music, NanXiao is a welcome addition to the sound
The sound character of Xiao is of something more saddened,
battered, and is filled with a melancholic mood. It represents a
lesser-known spirit in Chinese music, and that is why we bring out
ChineeNanXiao as a featured product. The role of NanXiao will no
doubt be elevated in the music world once it is properly introduced
to the composers in the whole world.
