Welcome to YANGQIN

Thank you for downloading this free holiday gift from Native Instruments.

YANGQIN brings the impressive sound of a traditional Chinese hammered dulcimer to KONTAKT with its unmistakable sound of bamboo and steel ready for modern productions.

It combines authentic sounds recorded in Shenzhen, China with a range of intuitive parameter controls, so you can create dynamic melodies that are emotive and rich in character.

This document provides information about the library and a description of all of its functions. We hope that you enjoy using YANGQIN.
