No, it’s not Friday, but I’ve got a free patch for you, so stop complaining! The reason for keeping the title “Friday” is so that all our free downloads are searchable.
This one comes to you from China, and includes 16 high-quality samples of Li Xiangting playing the Guqin instrument, a Chinese type of zither. Trust me, you’ll recognize it when you hear it. While this is a pretty unconventional sound, and not nearly as popular as other world instruments (like the sitar, African drums, etc.), I think it could add some nice flavor to an ambient track or breakdown.
I’ve been listening to a bunch of Chinese and Japanese classical music recently, and may bring you a similar rack in the future. For now, hit the jump for previews of the sixteen samples and a download link!
Did you enjoy this freebie? Check out the rest!
