Myst Sonic Ryan Cheng's Guzheng Collections (Steel)

Myst Sonic has announced the release of Ryan Cheng’s Guzheng Collection (Steel), the debut in the new Private Collection Series of authentic traditional Chinese instruments.

As a senior Guzheng professor, Ryan Cheng has been spending years researching and developing the best possible timber harmonic structure for the Guzheng instrument. The 21 steel string piece is one of Mr. Cheng’s favorite from the collection. Steel strings Guzhengs are very rare today which makes this instrument special. It also has a unique body structure unlike other GuZhengs. Similar to high quality acoustic guitar models, steel strings need excellent timber structure to harmonize with. The sound board part of this GuZheng is made from 30 years old natural Pawlownia Elongat wood and the bodysides are made from ancient red wood.

It is basically constructed by Mr. Ryan Cheng as a technical adviser. With his help, the instrument controls is programmed in fully humanise realist feel and very easy to learn how to control.

    A few months back I discovered the Kong Audio Chinese instrument plugins and I bought them all. But now they sound a bit cheap to my ear, but still ok. It’s nice to see someone creating legit sample libraries for Chinese instruments, for those of us who want better sound and more control. I would much rather use a NI Kontakt lib than those synthedit knock offs by Kong. Don’t get me wrong, the Kong plugs are good, but not great, and they’re the only game in town for some of those instruments, so I really shouldn’t complain. I’d love to see someone make a Kontakt ErHu sample lib.

    I quite like my Kong plug-ins, but I hear you Tony. I much prefer Kontakt libraries like the ones by Soniccouture.

    It seems big difference compare to those library on the market place,as i konw,most Guzheng is made of silk string and the Ryan’s Collection is made of steel string.They sounds just different.
    Beside,it just not the factory model that you can heard on the market.If you have any Chinese friend who are expert on Chinese instrument,they can easily compare the class between those Guzhengs.
