    Flute
    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 almost nothing to be desired – everything has been thought of! The extensive amount of samples is handled by Native Instruments´ powerful sample-engine, Kontakt Player. Expect a custom tailored user-interface and extensive scripting to meet the specific requirements of these instruments.Clarinet

    Chris Hein – Winds lives up to the expectations of both woodwind lovers and specialists demanding outstanding samples, comprehensive details, an elaborate selection of articulations and a versatile adaption to specific workflows.

    The instruments can be loaded as full sample-sets, offering all articulations ready to be played on the keyboard. Thanks to the library´s modular concept, you can also call up significantly reduced versions to keep loading-times fast and memory usage low. In clean-start configuration, only a sustain-set is loaded into memory. Whenever needed, you can add further articulations and functions with a single click. This allows fluent and efficient work, even on compact and mobile production systems with less powerful specifications.

    Oboe
    Chris Hein – Winds offers orchestral woodwind sounds tailored to perfection. Both the high quality gear such as selected Neumann microphones and the musician's significant performaces drive the sound aesthetics. Unlike the award-winning Chris Hein – Horns, this library takes advantage of the renowned WDR Symphonic Orchestra.

    For this library, dry close mic´ing was an intentional decision. All instruments were recorded individually avoiding any crosstalk. Despite that CH Winds incorporated the inevitable interaction of an orchestra. Therefore, the participating musicians used headphone monitoring, to complement each other. Consequently, time-dependent articulations such as Dynamic Expression receive an especially coherent tone, allowing you to combine individual instruments to perfectly matched ensembles.

    Bassoon
    Due to the sample-engine’s dual convolution reverbs and the intentionally dry sound of Chris Hein - Winds, you can easily adapt the instruments to various situations. The Kontakt Player allows a free instrument-placement in the stereo panorama. Separate convolution engines for the corpus-sound (body) and the ambience (room) allow creating any spatial environment, ranging from close intimacy to large orchestral halls. This makes Chris Hein – Winds significantly different to many competitors and their fixed spatial characteristics. 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 were 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 fails to deliver authentically sounding results. With real musical instruments, the note length often influences the attack behavior as well as the note end. Chris Hein – Winds addresses these aspects by its „Note Head Designer“. For each sustain, you can call up short, adjusted sample variations, so called shorts, via the 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 eight dynamic layers each and can be combined with the corresponding sustained phases, leading to astonishingly 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 – Winds offer true legato in up to four dynamic layers. For example, while playing the French Horn, the sample-engine picks the perfect note-transition out of more than 2,200 samples, resulting in unheard legato-realism. At the same time, it is possible to combine these realistic combinations with additional artificially inserted legatos.

    Library extend

    The library´s performance-data directly reflects the immense investment of recordings and configuration possibilities. Each instrument builds upon almost 10,000 single samples, 14 articulations and up to eight dynamic layers. This makes Chris Hein – Winds the most in-depth-library of orchestral woodwinds 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 offers immense configuration choices to live up to specific demands and workflows. At the same time, you can effectively play the library without any 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 of actually playing these instruments live.
