17th June 2009
Kong Audio has announced the release of ChineeYangQin, the 11th installment in the "Chinee Series".
YangQin (Chinese Dulcimer) is a relatively new member of the Chinese instrument family - it was not until the late Ming Dynasty (mid-17th century) that YangQin started to show up in China. The dulcimer originated from the Persian civilization, but since YangQin's sound character fitted so well to Chinese tastes it soon spread widely, especially in southern China.
ChineeYangQin is Kong Audio's recreation of the YangQin for modern Chinese composers' unfulfilled needs.
Features / specs:
- 270 MB sample set.
- All samples are recorded in 1-bit/2.8 MHz.
- ChineeYangQin (in C) contains various types of legato, rolls and back-striking playing techniques. The note range is from A2--A6.
Priced at $60, ChineeYangQin is available now as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows XP / Vista.
For a limited time (until July 17th, 2009), any new customer of Kong Audio's Essential China or Instant China packs can get ChineeYangQin with a discount of 50%.
