Best Service today announced a new series of symphonic performance sample instruments compatible with KOTAKT and ideal for scoring, multimedia and general music. The three new offerings include Chris Hein – SOLO VIOLA, Chris Hein – SOLO CELLO and Chris Hein – SOLO STRINGS COMPLETE. The latter includes Volin, Viola, Cello and ContraBass.

According to the company, “Chris Hein – SOLO VIOLA outshines all previous Viola libraries. A sample library of this extent has never before been dedicated towards a single string instrument: Recorded with greatest care and endless details, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI’s Kontakt Player, offering an elaborated custom-tailored user-interface with comprehensive scripting.”

Chris Hein Solo Viola
Chris Hein – Solo Viola features high-grade sound quality and incredible realistic articulations. This library offers everything you have been missing with previous virtual string instruments. You receive over 10,000 samples (4 gigabytes of sample data), 38 articulations, four different legato transitions as well as extensive phase-alignment of all samples to guarantee smooth inaudible crossfades of up to eight velocity layers. This feature-set allows the creation of authentic Viola-arrangements unprecedented on a computer.

Chris Hein – Solo Cello is a bundle of two fantastic sounding Solo Cello instruments. The two instruments in CH – Solo Cello have exactly the same features, but a completely different sound. “Modern Cello” has a high-definitiion sound with extreme dynamic and a precise and clear tone. “Romantic Cello“ has a more warm and rich sound. You can hear the old and noble wood. You receive over 24.000 samples (9,5 gigabytes of sample data), 38 articulations, four different legato transitions as well as extensive phase-alignment of all samples to guarantee smooth inaudible crossfades of up to eight velocity layers.

Chris Hein – SOLO STRINGS COMPLETE is an extensive Solo Strings Libary including Chris Hein´s Solo Violin, Solo Viola, Solo Cello and Solo ContraBass – all recorded with greatest care and endless details, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI’s Kontakt Player.

Each Instrument has over 10,000 samples, 38 articulations and 4 different legato transitions. Unique phase align techniques enable perfect X-fade blending between up to 8 dynamic layers. Play from smooth & soft to screaming loud with completely natural sounding transitions, all without artefacts or phasing. Choose from a staggering 102 different attack shapes per note using the unique Note Head function, all with just a single fader. Two on-board convolution reverbs allow you to design the body of the instrument and the performance space itself. The DSP effects rack gives unlimited power to process the string sound, from soundtrack-ready to other-wordly.

Chris Hein – Solo Strings Complete offers true legato in up to four dynamic layers for short and long note variations. The corresponding in-depth recordings and edits result in unexpected realistic sounds with perfect note-transitions. At the same time, it is possible to combine these realistic combinations with additional artificial inserted legatos.
