Available for download, Chris Hein Orchestral Woodwinds Volume 4 from Best Service is a sample library giving you all the bassoons from the complete collection in one virtual instrument. All three bassoons in this library make use of 14 articulations and up to eight dynamic layers.
This virtual instrument is powered by the included Native Instruments Kontakt Player, which allows for a panoply of configuration choices to accommodate many different styles of workflow. 26 key-switch presets at the lower end of the keyboard range allow you to choose among various options in triggering different articulations, for example.
With around 10,000 samples per individual instrument, this library will come in handy for producers and composers alike, whether your taste is for film work or orchestral pieces. Furthermore, while all instruments have been close-mic'd individually—affording you multiple blending options in post—particularly dynamic expressions have been recorded in a manner that will always synchronize, giving you a coherent tone in volume swells, decrescendos, and other situations.
This virtual instrument is compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. It can run in standalone mode, or operate within VST, AU, or AAX formats.
