Kong Audio ChineeGuanZi
Kong Audio has announced the release of ChineeGuanZi, the 9th installment in the Chinee Series product line.
Characterized by a triste tone, GuanZi (literally means Pipe) is a double-reed instrument from China. Originated in Central Asia, like many other existing Chinese instruments, GuanZi became an integral part of Chinese instruments ever since the great Tang Dynasty (7th -10th centuries), according to Kong Audio.
"The combination of pitch-envelopes with keyswitching in the patch programming makes ChineeGuanZi a lively and expressive instrument to play with," they say.
ChineeGuanZi (in G) contains legato, tremolo, and various other playing techniques. The note range is from D4 to D6.
Pricing & Availability
Priced at $60, ChineeGuanZi is available for Windows as a VST instrument plug-in.
