Percussion Sounds From The Peking Opera


After Gu Zheng, Peking Opera Percussion is the second virtual instrument of Best Service's Chinese developer team, who specialize in virtually reproducing traditional Chinese instruments.
Best Service tells us that Peking Opera Percussion is a collection of high quality drum and percussion instruments used in traditional Chinese Opera, especially the Peking Opera, one of the cultural treasures of China, and Kunqu Opera, known as the 'teacher' or 'mother' of a hundred operas. The library also includes other percussion instruments commonly used in contemporary Chinese music, such as a 4 feet high drum, played in solo and ensemble performances, various gongs and cymbals and the unique Bianzhong that was found the tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng, an ancient Chinese instrument dated 433 BC consisting of a set of bronze bells that were hung in a wooden frame and struck with a mallet.
Best Service says that, like Yellow River Sounds Gu Zheng, Peking Opera Percussion is produced with top notch sampling, editing and programming, by local Chinese producers, who have a natural understanding of their culture and a sole passion to express the true quality of Chinese instruments. To help you find your way into the rhythm patterns of Chinese opera they say that they have included many playable MIDI templates.
Thanks to the Best Service Engine 2, the company says that you will enjoy a beautiful and easy to use interface and get easy real-time control over all the important performance parameters.
