Kong Audio releases Bian Zhong: the Crowning Bells of China Sampled Instrument for Windows

Kong Audio has released Bian Zhong: "the Crowning Bells of China" sampled instrument for Windows.

Here's what they say:

This Bian Zhong (Chime-bells) of ZengHouYi (Marquis Yi of Zeng) virtual instrument is a recreation from the stately bronze Chime-bells set that was played in the palace of the Warring States period of China more than 2,400 years ago.

The excavation of the ZengHouY Bian Zhong Chime-bells set in 1978 in China brought this most complete and immense set of ancient Chinese Chime-bells ever discovered back from history. It revealed the lost oval design of "one bell with two tones." It also goes beyond the Pentatonic Scale and is only one octave less than the modern piano.

ZengHouYi Bian Zhong is one of the official national treasures of China. Now the composers in the world have the chances to use the same Chime-bells that were played in the courts of kings in the early days of Chinese civilization in their compositions.

Kong Audio's Bian Zhong comes in two different versions: Bian Zhong (23 bells) and Bian Zhong Pro (88 bells).


  • Bian Zhong (23 bells): 49 USD.
  • Bian Zhong Pro (88 bells): 129 USD.


System Requirements: Microsoft Windows. 6GB RAM. 6GB disk space (Bian Zhong Pro). 3Ghz CPU. 64-bit VST host sequencers preferred for Bian Zhong Pro.
