Orchestral woodwinds for your computer in unheard perfection!

Chris Hein – Winds is an extensive woodwind library meeting the highest expectations regarding sound, quality, expression and usability. The library's instruments are based on painstakingly recorded and edited multisamples, with numerous articulations and up to eight dynamic layers. Producer Chris Hein has brought thirty years of sampling experience into this masterpiece, giving the user maximum flexibility and a high level of customization, while maintaining the ease of use.

Version 2 now features the following improvements:

  • improved tuning of almost all samples
  • improved phase-aligned samples
  • drastically reduced resource demand
  • improved legato transitions
  • optimised transition speed function
  • glide mode-slur for more realistic runs
  • optimised Touch OSC MIDI remote control
  • minor bug fixes

Registered users of the first version will find a free download of version 2 in their Best Service account!

Chris Hein – Winds consists of four individual volumes, also being available separately or combined in a bundled complete version. The library contains a total of 13 instruments: four transverse flutes, three clarinets, three oboes and three bassoons.

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 detailauthentically 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.
