Best Service Chris Hein Orchestral Woodwinds, Complete Collection - Virtual Instrument (Download)

Available for download, this complete collection of Chris Hein Orchestral Woodwinds from Best Service is a sample library giving you flutes, clarinets, oboes, and bassoons in one virtual instrument. Each family of woodwinds contains up to four different instruments in its category—for example, there are four flutes in the flute pack—and every instrument makes use of fourteen 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's 50GB of content 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 collection is compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. It can run in standalone mode, or operate within VST, AU, or AAX formats.

Best Service Chris Hein Ensemble Strings - Virtual Instrument (Download)

Best Service Chris Hein Ensemble Strings is a Kontakt-powered virtual instrument with a designed ensemble string library, which includes violins, violas, cellos, and contrabasses combined into ten useful ensemble instruments. These ensemble instruments have been mixed from a raw sample pool of over 120,000 samples comprising perfectly tuned and edited performances of solo players. This unique approach ensures that the ensemble instruments are free from player performance errors often found in traditional ensemble libraries. Featuring a unique production technique, a vast array of articulations, special effect-sounds, and DSP effects, Chris Hein Ensemble Strings provides composers and producers with a flexible tool for film scoring, pop music productions, sound design, games, musical experiments, or fast and easy sketching.

The instruments are arranged in two different section sizes: small ensembles for a tight sound with a delicate character and full ensembles for a big and wide sound experience. The samples of each individual player in the ensemble instruments are carefully detuned, time-shifted, positioned in the stereo field, and mixed down to a 24-bit stereo mix, resulting in a warm symphonic string sound.

Thirty-two articulations have been recorded with up to 8 dynamic layers each. Articulations include seven different sustains, twelve different shorts, and thirteen special articulations such as run ups, repetitions, trills, octaves, and cluster clouds. Used in combination with intelligent legato and portamento, these articulations help musicians enhance their performance by allowing them to experience the feel and sound characteristics of the real instruments played live.

Chris Hein Ensemble Strings comes with the latest NI Kontakt Player, so no extra software is required to get you started. The sample library is compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. It can run in standalone mode, or operate within VST, AU, or AAX formats.

Best Service Chris Hein Orchestral Brass EXtended - Virtual instrument for Composers & Sound Designers (Download)

Available for download, Best Service's Chris Hein Orchestral Brass EXtended offers 12 brass instruments that can help composers and sound designers achieve full arrangements. This makes the instrument library suitable for use in film work, television, and other media where budgets for recording media may be at a premium.

This collection of instrument builds upon a previous library, one with over 50,000 samples in a 12GB download. It was comprised of nine solo instruments as well as three different ensembles. EXtended offers three new instruments into the mix, as well as six new instrument patches, and two effects articulation patches. 20GB of content is offered herein. This is more than twice the size of the original library.

The new instruments include the F-tuba, the sousaphone, and the euphonium. These low brass instruments come with 24 articulations to give you options as you fill out the low end of your brass section.

Chris Hein Orchestral Brass EXtended is powered by the included Native Instruments Kontakt Player and is also compatible with Native Instruments Kontakt, versions 4 through 6. So long as you have a compatible version of Native Instruments Kontakt, the library is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms and can operate standalone or in AU, VST, and AAX formats.

Instruments from Orchestral Brass Complete

Three trumpets, three trombones, and three French horns recorded as individual instruments and as three ensembles. Each instrument builds upon almost 8000 single samples, 14 articulations, and up to 8 dynamic layers.

Additional Instruments

F-Tuba, Sousaphone, and Euphonium are provided. These three low brass instruments have more articulations and samples than the original brass instruments. There are 24 articulations in total for each instrument: tuba, sousaphone, and euphonium. In addition to five different sustains, six different shorts, and five different special articulations, you'll find added repetitions in 16th and 8th notes with adjustable speed, six new short articulations, and hundreds of one-shot effect samples.

Added Ensembles

For an epic Hollywood sound, six ensemble instrument patches have been added. Thanks to the sonic quality and wide dynamic range, this version of Orchestral Brass offers instantly fat, full sounding ensembles for each instrument group. 

New ensembles include:

  • Trumpet Ensemble Large
  • Trombone Ensemble Large
  • Horns Ensemble Large
  • Low Brass Ensemble
  • Full Brass Ensemble
  • Full Brass Ensemble without the Trumpets

The low brass ensemble sports extended articulations including ensemble repetitions, 6 new short articulations, 12 different notehead variations, and a large variety of spectacular Ensemble Effects.

Notehead Variations

Changing the notehead variations has always been a standout feature of Chris Hein libraries, and with Orchestral Brass EXtended, the number of different attack articulations increases from six to twelve. This is the easiest way to bring more character, variations, and nuance to your brass performances. Instantly switch between all versions of clean or dirty attacks by just moving the Notehead fader.

Simulated Mute Controls

The simulated mute controls inside Orchestral Brass EXtended are effective, realistic, and fun to use. Because they're modeled, rather than sampled, Orchestral Brass EXtended consists of a reasonable size without multisampling every different type of mute. All the EXtended instruments are armed with the mute modeling, accessible from the front panel. Included are five different Mutes: Bucket, Cup, Harmon, Straight, and Stop mute.

True Legato

The instruments of Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete offer true legato. The corresponding in-depth recordings and edits result in unexpectedly realistic sounds with perfect note transitions. At the same time you can expand these realistic articulations by additional, artificially inserted legatos.

Phase-Aligned Samples

All samples were fully aligned in phase. Accordingly, the instruments offer perfect seamless transitions of dynamic layers without sonic degradation.
