  • Product Description

    Best Service Chris Hein Winds Compact is the light-edition of the unique four-part library Winds Complete. It offers the same number of instruments: four transverse flutes, three clarinets, three oboes and three bassoons.

    For the Compact edition, the most important and common articulations and functions have been selected from the Complete edition. At the same time, this woodwind-library doubtlessly meets the highest expectations in regard to sound quality, expression and applicability. The library's instruments are based upon meticulously, carefully prepared multisamples with detailed phase-alignment for phase-correct blends and crossfades of dynamic layers. Up to eight dynamic layers guarantee for realistic sounding results.

    Because of its exceptional and highly versatile sound quality Chris Hein Winds Compact is a perfect addition to any orchestral library, especially for productions with woodwinds playing a prominent role; be it in classical compositions, epic film-scores or orchestral pop-ballads.

    Among the undeniable highlights of the library are true legato, variable attacks per note, innovative play-aids such as hot keys, note heads and MIDI remote controllability of all functions via TouchOSC.

    In case, the immense amount of articulations, as demanded by elaborated scores, is not needed, Chris Hein Winds Compact offers an efficient choice of woodwinds meeting the highest sonic expectations.

    Chris Hein Winds Compact naturally relies on a powerful sample-engine, in this case Native Instruments' Kontakt Player. Expect a custom tailored user-interface and extensive scripting to respect the specific requirements of the instruments presented.

    Orchestral Woodwind Sounds Tailored to Perfection

    Besides careful recordings with high quality gear such as selected Neumann microphones, the musicians significantly influence the sound aesthetic. Unlike the award-winning Chris Hein Horns, this library takes advantage of musicians being part of the renowned WDR Symphonic Orchestra.

    For this library, dry close micing was an intentional decision. All instruments have been recorded individually avoiding any crosstalk. However, Chris Hein Winds Compact factors in the inevitable interaction of orchestra musicians when creating their musical tone. Therefore, the participating musicians where given headphone monitoring, allowing them to play along to each other.

    The intentionally dry sound of Chris Hein Winds Compact allows an efficient combination with the sample-engine's dual convolution reverbs to adapt the instruments' to various situations. The Kontakt Player permits free instrument-placement in the stereo panorama. In addition, separate convolution engines for the corpus-sound (body) and the ambience (room) allow creation of any spatial environment, ranging from close intimacy to large orchestral halls. Here, Chris Hein Winds Compact differs significantly from the fixed spatial characteristics of many competitors. It makes this library greatly variable and, additionally, combinable with almost any other library available.

    Unique Functions

    Over a research-period of six months, all samples have been fully aligned in phase. Accordingly, the instruments offer perfect seamless transitions of dynamic layers without sonic degradation.

    The combination of long and short notes is a major problem in sample-libraries that often fail to deliver authentic sounding results. With real musical instruments, the note length often influences the attack behavior as well as the note end. CH Winds Compact addresses these aspects by its „Note Head Designer“. Here, along with each sustain-articulation, matching shorts sample variations (Shorts) can be called up using controls or MIDI-controllers.

    These shorts not only offer the corresponding correct attack-behavior but also a note-end that perfectly matches the note length. These user-defined selections of short-note-variations are available in up to eight dynamic layers each and can be combined with the corresponding sustained phases, leading to astonishing realistic results that cannot be achieved using random round-robin based selections. Of course, these shorts are also available as individual articulations.

    The instruments of Chris Hein Winds Compact offer true legato. 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.
