Woodwind Crossed With Brass


Kong Audio have released a new VSTi for Windows - ChineeSuona, The Stentorian Brass, which they describe as a hybrid crossover of brass and woodwind.
Here’s all the details in their own words…
Suona is rather unique. It is sort of a crossover between brass and woodwind. The sound of Suona is energetic, unapologetically harsh, abrasively brash, and proud-to-be-so-loud, blasting out everything in sight.
It is wild.
Suona is believed to be derived from the Persian Zurna and slowly adopted by the Chinese in the course of history. By the time of the Ming Dynasty (14th - 17th century), Suona is documented as a prevalent instrument in China.
Today, Suona is still widely used in the local (especially the rural areas) Chinese activities such as weddings or religious festivals. Some modified versions of Suona are now the official instruments of large traditional Chinese orchestras.
Extraordinary Playability
ChineeSuona contains two different Suonas: a Big Suona in G (note range: D4-E6), a Small Suona in D (note range: A3-B5), with various types of legato, tremolo, trills and staccato, rolls and vibes playing styles.
Like all other Chinee Series plugins, the live playability of ChineeSuona is, again, unmatched. The online audio demo is an examplary showoff of what can be done with only one patch.
