Kong Audio unveils Chinee Series QIN Edition

Kong Audio has unveiled the next generation of its Chinese instruments product line: Chinee Series QIN Edition. Starting out as a sample content developer in 2005, the QIN engine marks a firm step into the music software development realm for Kong Audio.

QIN Edition (QIN means "instrument" in Chinese) is a major upgrade for the previously released Chinese Series instruments, now powered by the Windows native QIN engine developed by Kong Audio.

QIN engine approaches sampler design with a layer of intermediary controls (called Extenders in QIN, there are 20 Extenders), helping sample developers as well as composers harnessing the advanced arrangement and manipulations of sample soundsets in a much more intuitive way without tapping into the scripting territory, yet still capable of producing complex and inspiring results.

Other than the change of sampler engine, Chinee Series QIN Edition also introduces the brand new ChineeGuZheng II to replace the old ChineeGuZheng; some instruments have bonus content added; all instruments have the presets remade to utilize the features of QIN engine. As the result, Chinee Series QIN Edition delivers a much better expressiveness and playability than before.

"We have made something that we are very proud of," said Dongsheng Shan, the CEO of Kong Audio and the producer of the Chinee Series QIN Edition. "Even though QIN is still a work in progress which has many flaws, it has allowed us to finally create the actually playable - in an authentic sense - Chinese instruments the way we had in mind when we first started."

Including the just-released ChineeSanXian, currently the Chinee Series QIN Edition comprises 15 Chinese ethnic instruments. You can get all 15 in a big bundle called "Kongplete", or you can choose smaller packages like "Essential China," which contains 6 instruments, or "Instant China," which contains 3 instruments, and still enjoy a discount.
