Strezov Sampling has introduced its upcoming Kontakt Player powered virtual instrument library Jade Ethnic Orchestra, featuring a deep sampled collection of Chinese and Mongolian instruments recorded with some of the best Chinese musicians.
The library includes an ethnic Chinese orchestra, percussion section, two choirs and more.
Comprised of over 50 instruments spread across more than 100 instrument patches, Jade Ethnic Orchestra gives you the option to choose between multiple categories, such as Bowed Strings Ensembles, Bowed Strings Solo, Plucked Strings, Voices, Woodwinds, Percussion (based on our X3M engine) and stemmed out sound-designed pads created especially for the library by Lyubomir Goshev. The library was co-produced by composer and multiinstrumentalists Seth Tsui, who conducted and recorded the sessions in Beijing, China.
JADE Ethnic Orchestra is a huge collection of Asian ethnic instruments. Most of the sampled instruments originate from China, but along with them we have included others, like the Hoomai men choir, the Mongolian Longsong Quartet, Moorin-Khuur, the Shakuhachi and many others Asia is to be proud of.
