Variable sound shaping
Chris Hein - Strings Compact offers solo and orchestral string sounds in perfection. Beside careful recordings and top-quality gear being used including selected microphones by Neumann, the musicians, for the most part members of the renowned WDR symphonic orchestra, significantly influence the results and the sound aesthetics.
Combined with the dual convolution reverb sections of the sample-engine, the unprocessed dry sound of the library allows the instruments to be perfectly matched to lots of different applications. Separate convolution sections for the corpus sound (body) and the room impression allow to create almost infinite room impressions ranging from intimate proximity to large orchestra halls. In contrast to the fixed imprinted room sound of several competitors, Chris Hein - Strings Compact is greatly versatile in tonality and can therefore easily be combined with any other library.
Regarding its sound quality and suitability in daily use, the library makes no compromises, even at its compact size. The instruments of Chris Hein - Strings Compact are based upon carefully created elaborated multisamples, which offer phase-correct blends, crossfades and dynamic layers through detailed phase-alignment. At the same time, up to eight dynamic layers provide authentic sound behavior ranging from ppp to fff.
Undeniable highlights of this library are the true legato function, articulation changes by keyswitches, variable attacks per note, x-fade control via breath controller, portamento legato via sustain pedal, switchable artificial vibrato, innovative play control through hot keys and note heads plus MIDI remote controllability of each function via TouchOSC from an iPad.
