Welcome to this Chris Hein Solo Violin users' upgrade version of Solo Strings Complete - an an extensive Solo Strings Library including Chris Hein's Solo Violin, Solo Viola, Solo Cello and Solo ContraBass - all recorded with greatest care and endless details, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI's Kontakt Player.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CROSSGRADE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR EXISTING USERS OF CHRIS HEIN SOLO VIOLIN
Each Instrument has over 10,000 samples, 38 articulations and 4 different legato transitions.
Unique phase align techniques enable perfect X-fade blending between up to 8 dynamic layers. Play from smooth and soft to screaming loud with completely natural sounding transitions, all without artefacts or phasing.
Chris Hein Solo Violin: delivers outstanding, detailed and highly expressive results in all relevant genres ranging from classical music and film scores to gypsy-jazz, folk and pop ballads. Contains two fantastic sounding Solo Violins; Modern Violin and the Italian Violin.
Chris Hein Solo Viola: features high-grade sound quality and incredible realistic articulations. This library offers everything you have been missing with previous virtual string instruments.
Chris Hein Solo Cello: is a bundle of two fantastic sounding Solo Cello Instruments. The two instruments in CH-Solo Cello have exactly the same features, but a completely different sound.
Chris Hein Solo ContraBass: outshines all previous Contrabass libraries. Never before, a sample library of this extent has been dedicated towards a single string instrument.
Choose from a staggering 102 different attack shapes per note using the unique Note Head function, all with just a single fader. Two on-board convolution reverbs 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-wordly.
Perfect dynamic transitions thanks to phase alignment
Over a research period of several months, all samples have been fully aligned in phase. Accordingly, the instrument offers perfect seamless transitions of dynamic layers without sonic degradation.
Unique combination of short and long notes
The combination of long and short notes is a major problem in sample-libraries that often fail to deliver authentic sounding results. With real musical instruments, the note length often influences the attack behavior as well as the note end. Chris Hein – Solo Strings Complete addresses these aspects by its "Note Head Designer" which has been significantly expanded for this library.
Each instrument offers a selection of 102 attack shapes. This allows calling up twelve matching short sample variations (Shorts) along with each sustain-articulation. These shorts not only offer the corresponding correct attack-behavior but also a note-end that perfectly matches the note length.
These user-defined selections of short-note-variations are available in eight dynamic layers each and can be combined with the corresponding sustained phases, leading to astonishing realistic results that cannot be achieved using random round-robin based selections. Of course, the shorts are also available as individual articulations.
