Chinese Sound Palette In A Streamlined Form

Kong Audio has released Chinee Orchestra SE(Standard Edition), a collection of 27 classic Chinese instruments, plus one set of Chinese percussion. The Standard Edition is a streamlined version of the Chinee Orchestra Full Edition.

COSE comes in with a smaller content but it has a more affordable price tag. Also, Kong Audio says that they have put in lots of effort into making COSE a practically useful tool for composers as well as teachers and students. All presets in COSE are created afresh with care, and it also heavily utilizes the features of QIN engine player in order to make the instruments sound alive.
Users can customize COSE presets at will and make use of QIN engine's Extender system to make multis, keyswitches, aftertouch/modwheel triggering, and much much more.

A spokesperson told us, "COSE extensively covers the most common instruments used for composing Chinese music. Get inspiration from a vast range of sound of the East. Learn to incorporate the Chinese elements into your work. Or simply keep some rare sound in stock just in case you may need it."
