EastWest (http://www.soundsonline.com), the exclusive US distributor
of Best Service products, has released latest collection by leading
producer Chris Hein, Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2 — Section Horns. The
new library looks to expand on the previous solo collections and
offers 10 section combinations in addition to 17 solo instruments.
With more than 34,000 samples of alto saxophone, tenor saxophone,
baritone saxophone, trumpet, tenor trombone, and bass trombone, the
instruments of Vol. 2 are equipped with the right size of clarity to
produce brass sections for a small funk group or a complete band,
according to the folks at EastWest. The interface allows for all
instruments to be combined into small or large sections.
Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2 features different legato and play mode
features to allow for realistic note transitions. The collection
offers key-vibrato, hotkeys and the new key-switch concept. In
addition to the regular effect selection, Hein along with Sonic-Lab,
the developer of Halls of Fame, has added 21 Impulse Responses for
the convolution reverb in Kontakt Player 2, for sax and brass
instruments. All the instruments featured in the collection have been
played by Cologne Germany’s WDR Big Band members with performances of
up to eight velocities and 20 articulations per note.
Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2 — Section Horns is available as a separate
collection and retails for US$449.95. The collection will also be
available as a bundle version with Vol. 1 (version 1.5) for $549.95.
Current registered users of Vol. 1 (version 1.5) are eligible for
reduced crossgrade to Vol. 2 retailing for $279.95.
