Ching Sample Library

Free Ching sample instrument

Welcome to Etched Sounds.

We are very pleased to announce our first instrument, a free Ching Sample Instrument library for Kontakt.

The Ching (ฉิ่ง) is the backbone of rhythmic pulse in the traditional Thai Piphat ensemble, which plays the highest order compositions of Thai music, such as for royalty or religious ceremonies, as well as accompanying traditional Thai theatrical performances. Similar instruments can be found throughout south-east Asia, from countries such as Cambodia and Laos.

This sample library contains the two sounds that are used in traditional Thai music. These sounds are the “Ching” (the open sound) and the “Chap” (the closed damped sound).
