ChineeWinds: 8 flutes in one VSTi 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 RealmDizi (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 musicThere 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 favorite hosts.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 contains 8 different flutes: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 QualityAll 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 EaseWith 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 ChinaNanxiao (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 palette.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. *ChineeWinds contains a Xiao, but far less detailed than NanXiao.
