This electronic download of the Chris Hein Horns Complete from Big Fish Audio ships with the Native Instruments Kontakt 5 player and is a complete virtual-instrument library of brass and woodwinds for jazz, pop, big-band and funk. The collection features 54 solo instruments and 32 section instruments partitioned into four volumes containing different instruments perfectly matched to each other.
Each solo instrument offers eight levels of velocity and 38 different articulations via hot-keys. No key-switching is required to access the different articulations and playing techniques, and each sample offers phase synchronization for perfect blending of velocity cross-fades. The customizable articulation presets allow for control over speed, panorama, volume, and transpose parameters.
Additional features include velocity fade filter, transient designer, improved key-vibrato, two intelligent LFO-Vibrato types, assignable pitch-bend, and an improved graphical user interface which simplifies tweaking and editing. An optional iOS controller is available for the Hexlers TouchOSC app, which allows for recording of automation from an iPhone or iPad.
All the instruments have been played by professional big-band musicians in separate sessions but to one another, which results in perfect harmony of the sections and allows maximum flexibility for the producer.
