Here are some ambient/soundtrack pieces I've made using the Kong Audio VSTis - and also the phatimized loop pack:
Ocean of the Sun (lead instrument is the mini Erhu - this came about after listening to Brian Eno...)

Jungle City (lead is Chineewinds - inspiration here was Peter Gabriel's soundtrack work)

Shrouded Library (lead is Chineewinds too - this piece was written for a fan-created Myst-esque game)

Thanks for the inspiring instruments!
I've created a new ambient track titled Lunar Birds, a companion to my earlier composition Ocean of the Sun.
I'm grateful to Kong Audio for generously providing the ChineeNanxiao lead instrument.

I'm a relative newcomer to the world of softsynthesis and DAW music creation, and the kind of stuff I'm involved in is pretty different from most of what I've heard on KVR. As a result, I've been pretty intimidated about posting anything, but I wanted to at least point this one out as a thank you to some of the fine developers I've become aware of since hanging out here over the last couple years.
Semi-briefly: I got a call from a choreographer who needed a dance score, and pretty quick - this is 4 weeks before the performance. The dance had already been done once before, to live hand drumming, but she wanted different music. The catch was that it was about 8 minutes of completely laid-out meters and tempos and tempo changes. I just had to fill it all in with music. Oh, yes: the piece involves water - in fact, there is an actual water sculpture on stage that the dancers interact with. That said, she asked if I could incorporate water sounds, including rhythmically.
So it doesn't flow quite like a perfect piece of music, having to 'fit' on the dancers without changing their routine. And I couldn't have imagined, in an earlier lifetime, that I'd be able to do this all with a lunch-box sized computer sitting next to me. Lastly, while I've been a performer all my life, and done a fair amount of recording (as a player), I am by no means qualified to record and mix. In fact, one of the reasons I took this project on was to try and get deeper into the process, learn my tools a bit more, etc. So I'd welcome comments on how I can go the next steps; the best part is this is a work in progress, and we'll be able to revise in the future.

I checked out your DiZi Articulation packs- very cool Smile
I mixed some sounds from them with some other chinese and japanese instuments like an erhu, shakuhachi, ocarina and koto and made a little loop out of them.

#Singline Studio has made a promo video which employs several of our plugins. Quite interesting.
Note: it's a draft, with greatly reduced quality to minimize the file size.
#A new single EP released in Mainland China shows off the excellent usage of Chinee Pipa (Winds and Erhu are also used here). This tune is now one of our official Chinee Pipa audio demos.
