Sound Magic has introduced China Ensemble which they say featurse a full traditional Chinese orchestra. Powered by the latest Neo Piano Hybrid Modeling Engine. Here's the details in their own words...
China Ensemble is designed to represent a big traditional Chinese orchestra. Presently, very few people are aware that modernized traditional Chinese orchestras might even be larger in scale compared to the full symphony orchestras we commonly see.
Sampling such big orchestras is never an easy task, even with enough money, time and technology. To make things worse, the combinations/settings of the instruments used in the orchestras also differ in different areas of China. So, nowadays, the Chinese orchestras found on the market usually fall short of the standard ones--they lack both in depth and details. That's why we feel it is our job to represent a full, detailed traditional Chinese orchestra.
China Ensemble is powered by Sound Magic's latest Neo Orchestra Engine. This 36th TEC Awards nominee engine utilizes the 7th generation universal hybrid modelling technology that Sound Magic keeps developing over 10 years. What is more, on some instruments like Erhu, Sound Magic firstly utilizes Music Domain Synthesis, our latest cutting-edge audio technology.
Based on the huge variety of Chinese traditional music instruments in different areas of china. China Ensemble can be configured into 4 major settings of Chinese orchestra.
