Your Complete Orchestral Strings Collection
Chris Hein Solo Strings Complete is an extensive Solo Strings Library including Chris Hein Solo Violin EXtended, Solo Viola EXtended, Solo Cello EXtended and Solo ContraBass EXtended - all recorded with the greatest care and endless details, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI's Kontakt Player.
The fourteen instruments, with a total of 100,000 single samples, up to 38 articulations and 4 different legato transitions were treated with unique phase align techniques for perfect X-fade blending between up to 8 dynamic layers. Play from smooth & soft to screaming loud with completely natural sounding transitions, all without artifacts or phasing
All instruments had been played by professional studio musicians on handpicked instruments and were recorded with great care and detail. Their virtual counterparts were further optimized for playability and performance (EX instruments), thus saving your computer resources and still granting you access to all required articulations for authentic performances.
Choose from up to 102 different attack shapes per note using the unique Note Head function, all with just a single fader. Two onboard convolutions reverb allow you to design the body of the instrument and the performance space itself. The DSP effects rack gives unlimited power to process the string sound, from soundtrack-ready to other-worldly.
Combine short and long notes for authentic-sounding results
If you listen to real string players, you'll notice that the length of the notes they play often influences the way they attack the notes. Without taking this into account, you can't create a realistic performance. That's why Chris Hein Orchestral Strings Complete provides you with a matching short-sample variation for each sustained articulation. This process not only attains the correct attack behavior, you also achieve a note end that matches the note length. Combine these user-defined short-note variations with their corresponding sustained phrases in up to eight dynamic layers, and you'll experience astonishing realism that can't be accomplished with random round-robin selections.
True legato results in realism and flawless note transitions
At Producer Sources, we're mightily impressed by the unparalleled realism brought about by the true legato articulations on tap with Chris Hein Orchestral Strings Complete. Thanks to true legato, you'll experience remarkably accurate note transitions. Of course, you can also combine these realistic combinations with additional artificial inserted legatos.
Phase alignment yields perfect dynamic transitions
All samples in Chris Hein Orchestral Strings Complete have been fully phase-aligned. The engineers at Best Service actually spent six months to ensure that they got it right! Thanks to this phase coherency, every layer of your composition blends perfectly with the others. You'll experience seamless transitions of dynamic layers with no sonic degradation.
Genius in the details
One of the reasons Chris Hein Orchestral Strings Complete sounds so natural in your orchestrations is that the samples were recorded dry and individually to avoid crosstalk, leaving it up to you to define a natural-sounding performance space using the software's onboard convolution reverbs. Chris Hein Orchestral Strings Complete's DSP effects rack gives you unrestricted freedom in processing your violin sound. Trust Producer Sources — you'll be blown away by the sheer detail, expression, and functionality of Chris Hein Orchestral Strings Complete.
