The dizi is a Chinese transverse flute made of bamboo. A special feature of this instrument is the additional hole between the embouchure and the finger holes. A membrane with fine wrinkles, called “dimo”, is glued over this hole, and it resonates similarly to a kazoo. The louder the dizi is played, the more the dimo resonates, making the instrument brighter and louder, and adding harmonics that give the tone a buzzing, nasal quality.

Dizis - Audio Demos
Dance for Toddlers (Dizi in D) Guy Bacos 0:57

This Synchron World Winds Pack includes two dizis in the keys of G and D. Typical playing techniques include a variety of ornaments, grace notes, portamentos, and accentuated releases of a note or phrase.

Both dizis included in this Pack were played by multi-instrumentalist, folk instruments expert, and member of the Synchron Stage Orchestra, Veronika Vitazkova. She played in many orchestras, among them the Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, and Tonkünstler Orchestra, toured Europe as a solo flutist with the late Ennio Morricone, and played at esteemed festivals from Salzburger Festspiele to Hollywood in Vienna. Having performed on countless film scores at Synchron Stage Vienna, Veronika feels very much at home on the large Stage A and marvels at the exceptional acoustics of this scoring stage that contribute substantially to the overall sound of each instrument.

To capture the spectacular ambience of “Stage A” of Synchron Stage, our engineers employed seven phase-coherent microphone configurations to provide a broad range of room options. All signals are available as separate channels in the mixer section of the Vienna Synchron Player. A wide variety of presets offer perfect mixer settings and serve as great starting points for your own sound creations.

Under the Content tab you’ll find a list of each dizi’s natural sampled tones, which are diatonic as opposed to chromatic. Nonetheless, this software instrument provides chromatic keyboard mappings for every instrument. In addition, legatos were sampled chromatically. If you want your composition to be played by a dizi player, please bear in mind that not everything you write and play on the keyboard may be possible to perform for a musician, due to the non-chromatic nature of this instrument.
