Product Info

Virtual Chinese Xiao Instrument

Xiao is a Chinese vertically played, membrane-less wind instrument and is made from a bamboo stem. With its serious and deep sound, Xiao is traditionally used in ritual music. In contemporary music, Xiao is often used in Chinese fantasy themes. Although the music played on the Xiao is usually slow and gentle, it is also good at reproducing heavy emotions through airflow attack and vibrato.

There are three main varieties of Xiao: Dongxiao is what Three Body Tech presents with Lost Soul; Nanxiao, with a deeper sound, which is widely used in southern China; and Qinxiaom which has a softer sound compared to the previous two and is used specifically to accompany guqin (a 7-string plucked instrument).
