A Pair Of Chinese Trumpets

The  Best  Computer  Music  And  Acoustic  Technology  Inc (aka  Sound  Magic) has introduced SuonaDuo VI featuring 2 Chinese Trumpets. They tell us that Suona Duo is a collection of 2 suona, one for high pitch, one for middle. Here's more details in their own words...

The suona, also called laba or haidi, is a Chinese sorna (double-reeded horn). It has a distinctively loud and high-pitched sound, and is used frequently in Chinese traditional music ensembles, particularly those that perform outdoors. It is an important instrument in the folk music of northern China, particularly the provinces of Shandong and Henan, where it has long been used for festival and military purposes. It is still used, in combination with sheng mouth organs, gongs, drums, and sometimes other instruments, in wedding and funeral processions. Such wind and percussion ensembles are called chuida or guchui. Stephen Jones has written extensively on its use in ritual music of Shanxi province. It is also common in the ritual music of Southeast China. In Taiwan, it forms an essential element of ritual music that accompanies Daoist performances of both auspicious and inauspicious rites, i.e., those for both the living and the dead.

This deeply sampled 3GB Library applies the latest hybrid modeling technology; it can also represent glissando, vibrato, bending and harmonic more vivid than other sampled instrument. The playability from modeling technology enables it to change timbre real time during playing, and this gives the sound more varieties and expressive than sampled instrument.

Sound Magic has also announced a February End Sale offering a 50%+ discount on Chinese instruments, pianos and effect units until February 28th, 2019.
