Best Service has released Chris Hein Horns Vol 4 More Sax & Brass, which is the final installment in the Chris Hein Horns series.

Vol. 1 - 4 contain different groups of instruments designed to match each other. All instruments follow the same concept, so, if you know one, you know them all, according to the company. Each volume contains solo-instruments as well as section combinations.

Vol. 4 contains the following instruments:
  • 2x Sax Sopran.
  • Sax-Bass.
  • Sax-ContraBass.
  • Eb-Clarinet.
  • Bb-Clarinet.
  • Bass-Clarinet.
  • C-Bass-Clarinette.
  • 4x Fluegelhorn.
  • 2x Tuba.
  • Alphorn.
  • Cimbasso.
  • 9x Section-Combinations.

General Features

Chris Hein Horns is a virtual sampled brass instrument library.
  • Approximately 2,000 Samples per instrument.
  • 18 different playing techniques.
  • All playing techniques in one program.
  • Up to 8 Velocities per note.
  • 72 control-features in 11 edit-pages.
  • 6 DSP Efx.
  • 21 high class convolution reverbs.
  • Key-Switch Presets, Hot-Keys, Key-Vibrato, Legato- and Glide-Mode, Growl-Control, and more.

The large amount of up to 38 articulations is what makes "Chris Hein - Horns " so realistic, they say. All articulations can be assigned over 18 keyswitch-keys, located on the lower notes of the keyboard. Access to every articulation is made possible via a  combination of keyswitches and MIDI-controllers.

'Keyswitching' is a means of enabling the user to access different playing techniques from within a single patch. It uses pre-programmed MIDI notes to switch between different articulations, meaning it is no longer necessary to reload each variant individually. The keyswitches themselves are exclusively controller keys. They make no sound, but instead are used to switch the entire group of samples which the main instrument keys trigger.

Key-switch Presets
Usually key-switches just switch between different fixed articulations or other pre-programmed sound variations. In CHH Vol1 the keyswitches are used to switch between complex sets of presets with 21 adjustable parameters. 18 Key-Switch presets are available. The KS-Presets are allocated to C0 - F1, in the lower area of your keyboard. The keyswitch is pressed prior to playing any actual instrument notes. The switchover occurs instantly without any time lag, Best Service promises.

Pricing & Availability
CHH is powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt Player and so is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X in stand-alone and VST, AU and RTAS plug-in formats. It costs €399.
