EASTWEST, exclusive US distributor of Best Service products announces that the long anticipated Chris Hein Horns Vol. 1.5 Solo Instruments collection is now a reality. Based on the popular NI Kontakt Player 2, the collection delivers a strong creative package of four solo instruments - Alto-Sax, Tenor-Sax, Trumpet, Trombone and an additional Trumpet-Section.
Since the inception of synthesis, musicians have wanted to accurately reproduce the performance capabilities of acoustic instruments, says Doug Rogers, founder and CEO of EASTWEST. The release of the Chris Hein Horns Vol. 1.5 Solo Instruments provides the creative artist with a wide sonic pallet filled with the nuance and personality necessary for a truly high-end production.
This spectacular collection features nearly 18,000 samples totaling 2.8 gigabytes of creative energy. At approximately 4,000 samples per instrument, the composer and performer now have the ability to sculpt the emotional content of a recording through the employment of up to 38 different playing techniques, all within one program. Performance nuance is further enhanced by up to 20 velocities per note combined with a choice of up to 189 variations per note, yielding an enormous range of tone and inflection.
