Three-Body Tech Whisper of Loong
Chinese Dizi Virtual Instruments
Dizi is a Chinese transverse flute-like instrument made of the bamboo trunk.
Unlike similar instruments, Dizi has a bulrush-made membrane that vibrates with airflow, making up its uniquely clear and bright sound.
Dizi is an incredibly expressive instrument, besides its smooth and beautiful melodic parts, Dizi can be played with a rich set of performances, such as rapid finger-popping, tongue-flutter, and airflow vibrato, allowing Dizi to play the most complex solo parts.
Dizi Qudi (literally melodic Dizi), which is usually used for playing solo works as the primary instrument of complex work, is what we present here in Whisper of Loong.
Adjustable Sound Field
When samples were recorded, 10 different microphones were used with different positions to capture the spatial and reverb characteristics of Dizi.
All these channels were mixed down to four channels: Yin, Yang, and far stereo.
The volumes of these four channels were adjustable in software, making it possible to obtain various tones.
By controlling airflow and finger, Dizi has a very rich set of performances such as mordent, finger pole popping, trill, flutter, vibrato, staccato, and gliss.
All these performances can be triggered in Whisper of Loong software, making it the most adjustable Dizi virtual instrument.
Whisper of Loong has real-recorded expressions that are freely controllable.
With the control of MIDI CC, it can express tone changes like a real Dizi performance.
With three different speeds of real-recorded gliss samples and sample synthesis technique, Whisper of Loong can perform gliss at freely adjustable speed.
Real-sample-based LFO engine making Whisper of Loong performs vibrato that is both realistic and adjustable.
Self-developed sampling engine with better sound quality, more powerful disk buffer streaming/sampling compression technology, and brand-new sound fusion technology.
We recorded the sound between legato notes in two speeds, and apply them according to playing speed in software.
In addition, we recorded "popping legato" that are specific in Chinese Dizi.
At the beginning of Chinese Traditional series development, we started to record the convolution reverb samples from spectacular places, famous natural and historical heritages in China. Thus you can simulate Whisper of Loong being played at the Great Wall or Terracotta Army site.
A Compressor, EQ, Chorus, and Ping-Pong delay are included, allowing you to create more flexible sounds.
Tear of Land provides you with a pattern library that allows you to easily realize your works and ideas.
You can also create your own patterns by dragging in MIDI clips.
