Chinee Series and Chinee Orchestra are the sample-based traditional Chinese instruments powered by QIN engine. QIN engine is developed by Kong Audio.

*Here's how to pronounce "QIN". This is the PinYin transcription system. It doesn't sound like "Queen", but more like "Chin". Qin means "instrument" in Chinese.[/list]

May i ask why some of the keyswitch features have changed in some of the instruments for Chinee Orchestra?

The reason why i ask is that i notice drastic changes in behavior in new projects or in new instances of the same instrument.

I'm already glad i didn't have to redo stuff so far (and i certainly should not touch the settings to prevent messing it up), but trying to figure out how to do the old tricks with the new preset behavior is disturbing my workflow pretty much...

Hi lbsl,

You are referring to the changes within QIN v2.x, right? QIN 1.x can(and only can) export fxp and be loaded into 2.x in order to retain presets.

Sorry about the inconvenience. We changed the keyswitch arrangement and we believed it's for a much better user experience. It's just unfortunate that users who have been familiar with the previous presets may need to get to know the new keyswitch again...

*You can export the presets in the old project that you would like to compare as fxps (please use QIN's builtin fxp manager) to us via email and we'll try to compare it with the new ones for you.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for the reply....
Nice to know i can import my V1.x presets into V2.0, i didn't knew that.
That will be specially helpful for updating some older projects around using the Qin V1 library.

I meanwhile already tried to save and reload the former 2.x keyswitch presets and that worked fine.
