Available for download, Chris Hein Solo ContraBass from Best Service is a virtual instrument that emulates the sound of a solo contrabass, with precise control and realistic articulations. It delivers detailed and expressive performances as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble, in a variety of genres ranging from classical music and film scores to gypsy-jazz, folk or pop ballads.

Powered by the included Native Instruments Kontakt Player, this 4GB library comprises over 10,000 samples, affording you 38 articulations, four different types of legato transition, and phase-aligned samples that provide smooth, inaudible crossfading among eight, separate velocity layers.

In addition to the usual articulations such as legato and portamento, Chris Hein brings you special effects and esoteric articulations, allowing experimental musicians and film composers to explore the possibilities of flautando, flageolets, and ponticello. The special effects are bolstered by an internal DSP rack housed within the Kontakt player. This sample library is compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. It can run in standalone mode, or operate within VST, AU, or AAX formats.

Close Mic'd Samples
All samples have been recorded close mic'd for the driest sound possible. Combined with the twin-impulse response-based reverberation sections in Kontakt, the instrument can be spatially located in acoustic environments ranging from intimate closeness to large concert halls.
Ensemble Maker
Ensemble Maker allows you to double a contrabass part by triggering multiple articulations at once, manipulating the stereo image, and finely detuning copied signals for a naturally diverse sound.
Library Modular Approach
By using the clean start configuration, the instrument is initially loaded with a default sustain variation while further articulations and functions can simply be added at any time if needed – this saves on CPU and boosts productivity/efficiency.
Phase Alignment Function
All samples are fully-aligned in phase – the instrument offers seamless transitions of dynamic layers without sonic degradation.
Note-Head Designer Function
Offers a selection of 102 attacks matching twelve short-sample variations with each sustain-articulation, for correct attack-behavior and note-end that perfectly matches the note length. Short-note variations are available in eight dynamic layers each and can be combined with the corresponding sustained phases, leading to realistic results that cannot be achieved using random round-robin based selections.
True Legato Function
True legato in up to four dynamic layers provides short and long note variations with seamless note transitions.
