Free Update adding 8 new Instruments for Chris Hein Solo Strings
Chris Hein Solo Strings Complete is an extensive Solo Strings Library including Chris Hein´s Solo Violin, Solo Viola, Solo Cello and Solo ContraBass - all recorded with the greatest care and endless detail, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI´s Kontakt Player.
