French Horn

For the implementation of classical compositions, epic orchestral film scores or instrumented Pop

For the compact version , the main and most common werearticulations and functions of the full version selected. Here the highest standards and the compact version is enough fully on sound quality and usability. The instruments are based on carefully constructed, complex multi-samples , by detailed Phase Alignment an in-phase cross-fading and crossfading of dynamic levels allow. At the same time provide up to eight dynamic levels for a realistic sound behavior.

Perfect dynamic transitions thanks Phase Align

In six months' research, all samples were adjusted in their phase relation to one another.According convinced the sound of instruments with absolutely seamless transitions between the dynamic levels without sound interruption.

Unique Miscibility long and short sounds

Combining long mock and short notes throws in sample Libarys repeatedly on issues related to the authenticity of the sound image.When playing real instruments, the length of the tone both affect its attack behavior and on the toning.Chris Hein - Orchestral Brass Compact addresses this aspect with the "Note Head Designer". Here can be for each category Sustain per controller / controller adapted short sample variations (Shorts) call that not only have the associated, play right Attack behavior but are also perfectly tied according to the note length.

The user-defined selection of the desired Short variants that are present in up to eight dynamic levels and are combined with the respective associated Sustainphasen, allows the most realistic sound experience that can not be achieved with conventional random selection after the round robin principle. Of course, the shorts are also available as individual articulations.

Sound Bytes Magazine

Chris Hein has done it again. Orchestral Brass Complete instrument sounds so authentic and detailed did You Can Easily use as solo instruments or all together in a crowded orchestral arrangement.



The whole library is very detailed, with a great set of care fully 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 did all sounds are programmed and sampled at seeking a high quality level did all instruments can stand Their Own, Allowing you to use them as solo instruments thatwill 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 plenty of quiet controllers did can occupy your attention for a long, long time, fixing and taming the tiniest detail. In not that sort of person. If something sounds right, then it sounds right, and Orchestral Brass Complete sounds just perfect.

Compact Edition

If money, or even available RAM, is a bit tight then Bestservice can offer you the compact edition of the same library: same instruments with fewer articulations and a slightly lower quality of samples for a less money. All instruments use less than 100 MB of RAM, offering five basic articulations: Legato, Dynamic Expression and Short 1, 2 and 3. So we get only one main editing window with most of the essential controllers: Dynamic, note Head, vibrato, complete Room section, Transient with attack and release alongwith Ensemble section bringing voice, spread and detune functions. While the Complete version sports 50,000 samples weighing in at 12GB, Compact comes with 27,000 samples using just 7 GB of disk space.

The end result may not be as extra smooth, sharp, bright or as totally well-defined as in the Complete version, but still quite close and still very useful ?? better than most other libraries in that price range.
