Guzheng, as one of the most representative Chinese instruments, first appeared around the Warring States period (475 - 221 BC), then became extremely popular during the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907 AD) and spread to all neighboring areas ever since. Guzheng was originally a rather simple instrument with only five strings. After all the years of evolution, today's Guzheng has twenty-one strings and is still widely used in all kinds of Chinese music.

ChineeGuZheng Classic is superseded by ChineeGuZheng II, hence it is turned into freeware, and it is now equipped with QIN RV 2.0 engine, giving it more possibilities than before.

Even though ChineeGuZheng Classic is much less expressive and less detailed than ChineeGuZheng II, ChineeGuZheng Classic has its own place. Other than the different sound character, one unique feature that sets ChineeGuZheng Classic apart from other GuZheng libraries is that it was performed using GuQin's techniques. This subtle yet distinctive difference makes ChineeGuZheng Classic one good collector's item.

System requirements and specs:

  • 218 MB meticulously produced sample sets.
  • Powered by the Windows native QIN RV 2.0 engine.
  • Windows XP/VISTA/Windows 7/8. 1GB RAM.
  • Works in VSTi compatible 32/64 bit hosts.
  • All samples are recorded in 24 bit 96 kHz.

Absolutely fantastic.

I have some Chinese classical music playing beside me, and I'm beside myself with the authenticity of this instrument. Hitting a couple of notes on my MIDI keyboard along with the music, and what I get is perfect timbre.

The GUI is very intuitive for intermediate+ users. There's plenty of expression in the layered velocity sensitive samples, allowing for MIDI mapping "erratic range" control (brilliant) and plenty plenty more to get you just the sound you're looking for. Very impressive quality. When they say "meticulously edited samples" they really freaking mean it.
