Sound Magic has released Konghou, an ancient Chinese Harp Virtual Instrument.
Here's what they say:
The konghou is an ancient Chinese harp. The konghou became extinct sometime in the Ming Dynasty. It was revived in the 20th century as a double bridge harp; the modern version of the instrument does not resemble the ancient one, but its shape is similar to Western concert harps.
This deeply sampled 22GB Library is the most detailed sampled konghou ever, say Sound Magic. It features 3 microphone perspectives that can also easily convert to 5.1 surround. And by using the latest hybrid modeling technology, it can also represent glissando, vibrato, bending and harmonic more vivid than other sampled instrument.
Konghou is also a very expressive instrument, the playability from modeling technology enables it to change timbre real time during playing, and this gives the sound more variety and expression. Sound Magic also include different playing noises inside the library.
