Kong Audio 11-31288 overview

  • 1Description

The Bian Zhong Pro from Kong Audio is a virtual instrument sampled from the most complete and immense set of ancient Chinese chime-bells ever discovered, perfect for enhancing or creating film and TV soundtracks, game scores, commercials or modern music, and live applications where authentic Chinese sounds are required.

The Bian Zhong (chime-bells) of ZengHouYi (Marquis Yi of Zeng) is the stately bronze chime-bell set that comes from the palace of the Warring States period of China 2,400 years ago. The pro version offers the complete 88-piece set expertly sampled and ready to be used into your next production. The PC-only VST instrument is compatible with FXpansion's VST-RTAS adapter.

  • Marquis Yi's Bian Zhong is the most exquisite musical national treasure of China. With its excavation in 1978 from the tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng, Yi's chime-bells astounded the world with its perfect condition and the extraordinary insight it shined upon ancient Chinese civilization
  • Based on the Bell set's inscriptions, the date of the chime-bell set was around 433 BC, during the Zhou dynasty's Autumn and Spring/Warring States periods
  • Based on the paintings excavated from the same tomb, we know hammers and sticks were used for striking the bells
  • Bian Zhong was prevalent in the feudal Zhou dynasty's different levels of states' courts. Music was connected with ritual and state power back then, and such a sophisticated instrument like Bian Zhong could only be accessible for the lords
Twelve-Tone Scale
  • Chinese music has always been thought to be pentatonic-centered. Marquis Yi's chime-bells curiously offers a full 12-tone scale, even though it's still pentatonic-centered. With the 12-tone scale, modern music can easily be played with this chime-bell
Two Tones Per Bell
  • The bronze Bian Zhong is constituted of a set of 65 bronze chime-bells (including the one given by the king of Chu) mounted at three levels on a wooden frame and divided into eight groups. Due to the bell's concave/roof tile-shape, each bell can generate two different pitches by striking the center or on the side. The interval between the two notes is either a major or minor third
