Kong Audio has released the latest VSTi plugin, ChineeLiuQin, as the 14th addition to the Chinee Series. The
LiuQin is a grassroot folk instrument which was originally popular in some provinces of China for the last two centuries.
LiuQin was a simple and rough instrument at the beginning, and it was once referred to as “the plebs’ Pipa” due to its lack of refinement – yet it is much closer to the true rural life. The structure of today’s LiuQin has been redesigned in the mid-20th century.
With the improved physical form, plus its higher pitch scale and its Western Mandolin-like acoustic effect, LiuQin has become a prominent instrument in today’s Chinese classical circle.
ChineeLiuQin is powered by the Windows native QIN engine. For more information and the audio demo of ChineeLiuQin, visit chineekong.com/chineeliuqin.htm
