Concept

YRS Peking Opera Percussion includes layers in four categories: Jingda, Drum, Bell, Cymbal/Gong. We sampled the most oft en used articulations in Chinese percussion and some layers are sampled with up to 16 velocity layers; allowing absolutely detailed and dynamic
performing.

Screen layouts

Most of the layers have their unique screen layout. You will learn how the real instruments look; while listening to their sound. On some layers, the individual instrument that is actually playing will be highlighted, this will help you to familiarize with the Chinese percussion.

Roll crossfade
Drum layers are mapped with roll crossfade, which can be controlled via CC1. This is a helpful feature to reproduce a realistic crescendo.

Close Mic and Room Mic
All layers have close mic and room mic samples, you can use the dry/wet control to adjust the balance between them.
