DIZI E-FLUTE
Virtual Chinese Transverse Flute for Electronic Wind Instruments or Keyboards

(Full version of NI Kontakt 4.1.1 or higher required)

 

Introduction

A dimo-covered mokongThe dizi is Chinese transverse flute made of bamboo. It is widely used inmany genres of Chinese folkmusic, as well as Chinese opera,
and the modern Chinese orchestra. What makes the dizi different from all other transverse flutes is the dimo, a membrane taken from
the inner wall of the bamboo plant and fastened over the special hole (mokong) between the embouchure hole and the first finger hole.
The dimo-covered mokong has a distinctive resonating effect on the sound produced by the dizi, making it brighter and louder, and
adding harmonics to give the final tone a buzzing, nasal quality. The Mo-Cong was invented in the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) by Liu Xi,
and he named the flute the "Seven Star Tube".

Suonopuro e-dizi is a free add-on of Suonopuro Bansuri.

You can use it as monophonic or polyphonic instrument. It can also perform two configurable parallel voices as used by great EWI player Michael Brecker.

It does not require complex configurations or problematic ways of playing. Just play your MIDI instrument as usual and the virtual flute will do the legato and staccato, crescendo and diminuendo, piano and forte, vibrato, portamento, etc.

It can be used with any MIDI controller but is specifically designed for two kinds of MIDI controllers: electronic wind instruments (like the Akai EWI or the Yamaha WX5) and keyboards.
