Synchronous Dizis - Two Dizis in the keys of G and D

The dizi is a Chinese flute made from bamboo. A special feature of this instrument is the additional hole between the blow hole and the finger holes. A bamboo membrane with fine folds, called "Dimo", is glued over this, which vibrates similar to a kazoo or comb blowing. The louder the dizi is played, the more the dimo resonates, making the instrument brighter and louder and adding overtones that give the tone a raspy, nasal quality.

This Synchron World Winds Pack includes two dizis in the keys of G and D. Typical playing techniques include a variety of embellishments, appoggiaturas, portamentos, and overblown endings of a note or phrase.

Both Dizis were played by multi-instrumentalist and ethnic instrument expert Veronika Vitazkova, who is also a member of Synchron Stage Orchestra. She regularly plays concerts with various orchestras, such as the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and the Lower Austrian Tonkünstler, toured Europe as a solo flautist with Ennio Morricone, and played at the Salzburg Festival and Hollywood in Vienna.

Since she has worked on countless film scores in the Synchron Stage Vienna, she is now very familiar with the large Stage A, whose extraordinary acoustics contribute so significantly to the overall sound of the individual instruments.

In order to capture the instruments with this excellent spatial sound in the best possible way, seven separate, phase-coherent microphone arrangements were used. All microphone signals are available separately in the Synchron Player mixer window. A large number of presets offer perfect mixer settings and serve as a starting point for your own sound creations.

Below you will find the sampled tones of the diatonic basic scales of both Dizis. Nevertheless, this software instrument also makes all chromatic intermediate tones available to you. Legatos were chromatically sampled. If you would like your composition to be performed by a dizi player, please keep in mind that not everything you can play on the keyboard can be used in a live performance.
