Available for download, this electronic download of the Chris Hein Horns Complete from Best Service includes the Native Instruments Kontakt 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 designed to match each other.
Each solo instrument offers eight levels of velocity and 38 different articulations via hot-keys. Key-switching allows for easy access to different articulations and playing techniques from within a single patch, and each sample offers phase synchronization for naturalistic blending of velocity cross-fades. The customizable articulation presets allow for control over speed, panning, volume, and transpose parameters.
Additional features include a velocity fade filter, a transient designer, improved key-vibrato, two intelligent LFO-Vibrato types, assignable pitch-bend, and an improved graphical user interface that 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.
