Auszug

Chtris Hein hat sich als Sound- und Software Entwickler einen Namen gemacht, vor allem denkt man spontan wahrscheinlich an den Bläser Bereich wenn von seinen Sounds die REde ist. Die Gitarren stehen dem nicht im Geringsten hinterher. Vor allem hat er sich für seine Gitarrenlibrary ein neues Bedienkonzept überlegt. Mit drei verschiedenen Modi will er sich den Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten/Speiltechniken echter Gitarristen annähern...


Flag ENspaceSound on Sound 4/2007


Another day, another guitar library, this time from prolific composer and all-round sample genius, Chris Hein. This 18GB collection covers nine instruments: nylon and steel, mandolin, banjo and then three electric guitars (clean, chorus and blues) alongside two jazz guitars (plectrum and finger). Arriving in Kontakt 2 format, it is bundled with a copy of the Kontakt 2 Player.

Continuing the current trend towards playability right out of the box, the actual number of patches is limited, but each one is filled to the
neck with keyswitches and automatable control parameters. There are, however, medium and light patches for each, with fewer velocity
layers, and others with only a limited number of articulations, in case you need to limit memory use.

I would use up most of this page if I were to list the switches (as many as 59 on some patches), but suffice to say all the usual suspects are present such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, falls, mutes, flageolet and so on. Over and above that there's a cunning slide mode, where you can create your own slides rather than being limited to pre-recorded ones. You can even then change the pace of the slide itself. The chord modes are another Godsend: you can play a chord and then either strum it, pick it or both, again with recourse to pull-offs and slides for added realism. Alternatively, the supplied MIDI patterns can control the rhythm, and you just insert your own chord choices. Whilst there are only a few patterns, they are a good base from which to kick off.

Interestingly, the library comes bundled with a demo version of Native Instruments' Guitar Rig plug-in — a clever addition from a marketing point of view, as I found some of the best results come from using this to process the standard library sounds. Guitar Rig is a worthy addition to your arsenal so, if you haven't already got it, be warned: using the demo tempts you mercilessly! A word should also be said about the manual: it's not only very well written, but supplied both as a PDF and hard copy, which is becoming a rarity these days.

So has CHG succeeded where so many libraries have gone before? As a one-stop library, a resounding yes — it gives you a little bit of
everything at your fingertips, all well recorded and with enough articulations to sink a battleship. Other libraries dedicated to only one or two instruments may have a small edge in terms of sound, but few have the accessible playability of CHG, nor its wealth of playing styles. That is not intended to damn it with faint praise, either — I would happily have it as my sole guitar library."

(Fazit) Chris Hein Guitars überzeugt mit exzellent bearbeiteten Samples und einer hervorragenden Klangqualität. Keyboarder können nach einer gewissen Einarbeitungszeit die neun Gitarrenmodelle extrem realistisch spielen. So werden Arrangements für Pop und Rock deutlich bereichert. Durch die Verbindung zu Guitar Rig nehmen die klanglichen Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten noch einmal zu. Hervorzuheben ist aber, daß Chris Hein Guitars, der realistischen Spielnachbildung geschuldet, deutlich aufwendiger als manches Konkurrenzprodukt ist. Das bedeutet für die Praxis, dass Arrangeure, die nur auf die Schnelle eine virtuelle Gitarre einfliegen lassen wollen, mit einem anderen Produkt im Stile von Steinbergs Virtual Guitarist besser beraten sind. Chris Hein ist das richtige Produkt für alle Tastenmusiker, die für Bühne und Studio eine realistische Gitarrennachbildung suchen.

Cover all of you basic guitar bases in one product. Sure there are more detailed libraries, but unless you are doing a lot of solo guitar work this pack should cover your needs, and at a fraction of the price. Of particular interest may be the Clean Guitar. There seem to be very few libraries with this type of sound, and those there are are either 7 times the price (calculated on what the Clean Guitar part of the pack costs) or are limited to chord reproduction and not solo and mute notes. Run this alongside a decent amp simulator and recreate a pretty good Nile Rodgers funk guitar backing.

Chris Hein produces some of the best sampled instrument libraries in the world. Very realistic and very useable.
