Why you'll love Guzheng
We sampled a guzheng using both typical playing styles and rare techniques.
Guzheng is typically played with a hard pickup using the right hand. This library also offers finger, drum stick, bow and e-bow articulations.
A typical technique among guzheng players is creating a tremolo effect with the pickup. You can easily replicate this in Guzheng using our tremolo script.
Guzheng includes 21 DSP effects ready to use including convolution with 30+ custom impulse responses, high quality EQs, compressors and much more.
