Product Overview

The Xiao is a ancient traditional Chinese, end-blown bamboo flute, also known as the dòngxiao.

We have sampled this instrument with true legato intervals all the way up to the octave, and, like the bansuri, have artificially filled in the notes which actually are not possible to play on the instrument physically.

Keyswitched Groups

There are multiple keyswitches, arranged so you can choose the first note of a phrase, and alter the expression of notes throughout a phrase as you play, allowing for an extremely human like sound. The expression wheel also controls dynamics.

Extended Chromatic Range

With our instrument, you can play it in any key, as you would any other instrument on the keyboard, without worrying about which notes are possible.

The range is two octaves, starting from Eb above middle C working up.
