Orchestral Brass instruments for your computer in unheard perfection!


Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete is an extensive orchestral brass library meeting highest expectations in regard to sound quality, expression and applicability. The library's instruments are based upon meticulously, extensively and detailed prepared multisamples with an offering of numerous articulations and up to eight dynamic layers.

Producer Chris Hein has brought his thirty years of sampling experience into this masterpiece, giving the user maximum flexibility, highest level of customization and benefit in use. The library offers nine instruments: three trumpets, three trombones and three french horns, being recorded as individual instruments and as three ensembles.

CH Orchestral Brass Complete focuses on orchestral brass sounds with highest possible flexibility. The library is arbitrarily configurable to embrace individual workflow techniques and demands of different producers. The available options and solutions take care of almost every practical application, leaving as good as nothing left to be wished for – everything has been thought of!

Naturally, the extensive amount of samples is handled by 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 Brass 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 mic'ing was an intentional decision. All instruments have been recorded individually avoiding any crosstalk. However, Orchestral Brass Complete 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, forming perfectly balanced ensembles. Consequently, time-dependent articulations such as Dynamic Expression receive an especial coherent tone, allowing you to combine individual instruments to perfectly matched ensembles.

The intentionally dry sound of Chris HeinOrchestral Brass Complete 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 Orchestral Brass Complete 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


Perfect dynamic transitions thanks to phase alignment
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.

Unique combination of short and long notes

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. Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete 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.

True Legato

The instruments of Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete 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.

Library extend

The performance-data of Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete directly reflect the immense investment of recordings and configuration possibilities. Each instrument builds upon almost 8,000 single samples, 14 articulations and up to eight dynamic layers. This makes the library one of the most in-depth-libraries for orchestral brass currently available. The custom-tailored user-interface of the Kontakt Player not only offers numerous functions to adapt the library's sound character and articulations but also provides immense configuration choices to live up to specific demands and workflows. At the same time, the library can also be effectively played without any need for deep edits. 26 pre-programmed key-switch-presets at the lower part of the keyboard (A-1 to A#1) allow fast tryouts of all available types.

Thanks to four "Dynamic Modes", the "Note-Head Designer", "Key-Vibrato", "Hot-Keys" and the revolutionary concept of articulation-presets, the user-interface will give you the impression to really play these instruments live.
