Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete

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.

French HornCH 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

recording hornBesides 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

Chris HeinThe 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.

Excerpt

"There are many orchestral brass libraries on the market ranging in different styles and character, Orchestral Brass Complete gives me more than enough control to write for Brass in any context. The Expressive Dynamic articulations really bring my lyrical lines to life and the shorts give me enough bite for those epic fanfares."

CONCLUSION

Chris Hein Orchestral Brass turned out to be a marvelously expressive library with extensive control options over every parameter you could possibly think of – and more. The sound quality of the massive amount of samples is absolutely top-notch and lets you perform both fragile solo parts and soaring, blaring ensemble lines alike. The dry and close-micd recording method allows for comprehensive placement options and opens up a broad range of use – from pop arrangements to massive orchestral pieces.

A real upside of Chris Hein Orchestral Brass is its wonderfully easy and smooth playability. The instruments sound awesome out of the box and together with a multitude of different articulations, they enable you to play convincing brass lines. Also the “FX” articulations like rips, falls and runs are very usable and blend well into a performance.

At the beginning, I was wondering why there was no tuba or cimbasso included, since this instrument type usually represents the lower range the brass section in an symphonic orchestra. But playing around with the trombones, I realized quickly, that there really was no need for a lower instrument. The playable ranges of both trombones and french horns go down so low, that they can easily take over a convincing tuba part.

I, and I know that Im not alone with this, am always in search of an orchestral brass library, that is able to cut through even the densest arrangements without sounding too honky in the upper dynamic levels. After spending quite some time with this virtual instrument, I think I may have found the remedy.

For a price of 299 $, Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete offers you a superb sounding orchestral brass section that is a breeze to play and at the same time features a myriad of control options to provide the highest flexibility possible. Well done, Mr. Hein!

-Dank Phase Alignment gelingen dynamische Übergänge fließend und ohne Verfärbungen, auch bei schnellen Wechseln-

- Die Samples sind lupenrein aufgenommen - in feinster Audioqualität und angenehm trocken -

Fazit:
Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete setzt Maßstäbe mit einem natürlichen und außergewöhnlich präsenten Klangcharakter. Alle Instrumente sind fließend dynamisch spielbar, dank Phasenanpassung durchgängig ohne Klangverfärbungen. Echte Legatosamples ermöglichen einfühlsame Soli. Die Entscheidung, unterschiedliche Short- und Stakkato-Spielweisen im fließenden Wechsel anstelle von Round-Robin-Samples einzubinden, führt zu einem ausdrucksstarken Spielvergnügen. Die Ensembles eignen sich für effektvolle, breit angelegte Bläsersätze - ideal für epische Filmmusik. Grundsätzlich eignen sich diese Blechbläser aber auch für Klassikanwendungen und entpsrechend ausgerichtete Pop-Arrangements.

Unterm Strich ist Chris Hein ein Meisterwerk gelungen, das zu einem fairen Preis angeboten wird.

+ ausdrucksstark dynamisch spielbar

+natürlicher, authentischer Klang

+umfangreiches Angebot an Artikulationen

+fließender Wechsel zwischen Attack-Varianten

+großartiger, epischer Ensemble Klang

+ausgereiftes Skript

Fazit (Auszug)

Was will ich groß sagen?! Klingt genauso, wie man sich das von orchestralen Bläsern vorstellt. Die Holzbläser klingen schön warm und nuanciert, das orchestrale Blech von hauchig matt bis rotzig frech. Es sind beide Libraries auf alle Fälle sehr gelungen. Man erkennt die klanglichen Eigenheiten und Timbres der jeweiligen Instrumente deutlich und gut unterscheidbar. Kombiniert mit den angebotenen Artikulationen und dem Vibrato lässt sich damit auf alle Fälle schon ein Großteil an „orchestralen Bedürfnissen“ abdecken. Und das zu durchaus moderaten Preisen!

Wer also nicht wirklich auf ausgefuchsteste Anpassungsmöglichkeiten angewiesen ist und wem die gebotenen fünf Artikulationen reichen, der ist mit der „Light“ Version der Chris Hein Libraries bestens beraten.

Chris Hein has done it again. Orchestral Brass Complete instruments sounds so authentic and detailed that you can easily use as solo instruments or all together in a crowded orchestral arrangement.

Excerpt:

Impressions

The whole library is very detailed, with a great set of carefully chosen, fine sounding articulations. All instruments sound very detailed with a well defined, clear and sharp attack and a strong and stable tone. Snappy attack and sharp tones cause those Brass section parts to easily cut through the mix without loosing their original character. The best thing about this library is that all sounds are programmed and sampled at such a high quality level that all instruments can stand their own, allowing you to use them as solo instruments that will sound authentic even without any additional background music or noise.  On the other hand the sound great in any crowded orchestral arrangement, nicely blending with all other orchestral instruments (of course, with a touch of a common reverb used on the whole orchestra helps).

The orchestral brass parts produced with this library sound great even by simple use of different articulations for different note lengths, without any need of additional programming. On the other hand, if you are a control freak, there are still plenty of controllers that can occupy your attention for a long, long time, fixing and taming the tiniest detail. Im not that sort of person. If something sounds right, then it sounds right, and Orchestral Brass Complete sounds just perfect.

I own a large number of libraries from several different companies including some of the most noted ones. But the excellent sounds and performance of this set brings something to the table that was well worth the purchase. The ease of putting a great sounding production together quickly with this library is superb.
