The ultimate collection of virtual solo strings
by Chris Hein in the EXtended Version
Chris Hein Solo Strings Complete is an extensive solo string library consisting of Chris Hein Solo Violine EXtended, Solo Viola EXtended, Solo Cello EXtended and Solo ContraBass EXtended. A total of fourteen solo instruments were recorded with great care and attention to detail, accurately reworked and assembled into a practical contact player instrument with an elaborate, tailor-made user interface and comprehensive scripting.
Chris Hein - Solo Strings Complete offers high quality sound and incredibly realistic articulations.
It offers 14 single instruments with about 100,000 incesamples with up to 38 different articulations, four different legato transitions as well as an elaborate phase adjustment of all samples for a smooth, inaudible crossfading of up to eight velocity layers.
All instruments were played by studio musicians on selected instruments with special timbres. The virtual implementation of the additional 8 EX instruments has been optimized for even better playability and performance. This saves your computer resources and you still have all the basic articulations for nuanced play at your disposal.
Chris Hein - Solo Strings Complete will satisfy the discerning lover of stringed instruments as well as composers who need more than just outstanding samples and who explicitly value comprehensive details, a complete range of playing styles and a flexible adaptation to the preferred working method.
Chris Hein Solo Strings Complete includes
Chris Hein Solo Violin EXtended - 4 Violins delivers outstanding, detailed and above all expressive results in all genres relevant to this instrument: classical music, film music, gypsy jazz, folklore, pop ballads.
Chris Hein Solo Viola EXtended - 3 Violas offers the highest quality sound and incredibly realistic articulations. The viola sound is full, warm and soft, yet radiant.
Chris Hein Solo Cello EXtended - 4 Cellos
is a bundle of four fantastic-sounding solo cello instruments with very different timbres.
Chris Hein Solo ContraBass EXtended - 3 ContraBasses
puts everything that's been there before in the shade. Never before has there been such an elaborate sample library that concentrates on contrabass.
Producer Chris Hein has brought more than 30 years of experience in sampling to this library, giving the user maximum flexibility, configurability and practical benefits.
Perfect dynamic transitions thanks to Phase Align
In research work lasting several months, all samples were adapted to each other in their phase position. Accordingly, the sound image of the instruments convinces with absolutely seamless transitions between the dynamic levels without sound impairments.
Unique miscibility of long and short tones
The combination of long played and short notes in Sample Libaries always raises problems regarding the authenticity of the sound image. When playing real instruments, the length of the tone influences both its attack and the end of the tone. The solution for this aspect is the "Note Head Designer". This function, known from other Chris Hein libraries, has been extended considerably for the Chris Hein - Solo Strings. Each instrument has 102 Attack Shapes to choose from. From this, twelve adapted short sample variants (shorts) can now be called up for each sustain style, which not only have the corresponding attack behavior, but are also perfectly bound according to the tone length.
The user-defined selection of the desired short variants, each available in eight dynamic levels and combined with the corresponding sustain phases, enables an absolutely realistic sound result that cannot be achieved with conventional random selection methods according to the round robin principle. Of course the shorts are also available as single articulations.
Chris Hein - Solo Strings Complete offers true true legato in up to four dynamic levels as well as separated for short and long. The result of the corresponding elaborate recordings and editing leads to unimaginably realistic sound results at the tone transitions. At the same time, there are possible realistic-sounding combinations with artificially inserted legato variants.
Scope of the Library
The performance data reflects the effort that was put into recording and configuring this library with around 100,000 individual samples, up to 38 articulations and up to eight velocity layers. So Chris Hein is probably the most detailed sampled solo strings library the market has to offer. The user interface of the Kontakt Player not only contains numerous functions for sound design and the adjustment of playing styles, but also gives the user a lot of freedom in the configuration. Pre-programmed key switch presets at the bottom of the keyboard also ensure fast application without editing. With four Dynamic Modes, Note-Head Designer, Key-Vibrato, Hot-Keys and the revolutionary concept of articulation presets, the user interface gives the musician the feeling of playing these instruments live.
Contact Player 5.8.0 or later required.
