After the success of Gu Zheng, Peking Opera Percussion is the second virtual instrument of our Chinese developer team, who specialized on virtually reproducing traditional Chinese instruments with great passion.

Peking Opera Percussion Screen

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. Even the unique Bianzhong that was found in the tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng was included. It is an ancient Chinese instrument dating back to 433 BC that consists of a several bronze bells, hung in a wooden frame and struck with a mallet.
Like Yellow River Sounds Gu Zheng, Peking Opera Percussion was produced using 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 we included many playable midi templates.

Key features

  • 3GB sample library, at 44.1kHz 24bit.
  • Most Chinese percussion instruments included
  • Midi grooves included
  • 2 microphone positions with dry/wet control
  • Powered by Best Service “Engine”

 

Concept

YRS Peking Opera Percussion includes layers in four categories: Jingda, Drum, Bell, Cymbal/Gong. We sampled the most often used articulations in Chinese percussion, some layers with up to 16 velocity levels; allowing absolutely detailed and dynamic
performances. 

Screen layouts

Most of the layers have their unique screen layout. You will learn how the real instruments look like; while listening to their sound. On some layers, the individual instrument that is actually playing will be highlighted. This will help you to familiarize with the Chinese percussions.
Roll crossfade
Drum layers include a roll crossfade mapping, which can be controlled via CC1. This is a useful feature for reproducing a realistic crescendo.
Close Mic and Room Mic
All layers have close mic and room mic samples. You can use the dry/wet control to adjust the balance between them.

Amazona.de Sehr GutAuszug/Fazit

Peking Opera Percussion ist natürlich speziell, aber dennoch nicht nur für sinologisch veranlagte Musiker relevant. Sowohl im Vertonungsbereich, als auch für diverse Musikstile lassen sich hier interessante und wenig „abgenutzte“ Klänge finden. Nichts für Routinearbeit, aber für experimentierfreudige Musiker durchaus zu empfehlen.

Fazit: Peking Opera Percussion ist eine Library mit außergewöhnlichen Schlaginstrumenten, die qualitativ gut und sehr natürlich aufgenommen wurden. Während sich die Trommeln auch universell einsetzen lassen versprühen die meisten Sounds einen deutlich chinesischen Charakter. WEr genau das sucht, findet in dieser Library zu einem guten Preis gut spielbare Instrumente. Jan-Soeren Haas, Keys
