    Chris Hein - Horns Vol.2 => Release: Mo, Oktober 27th 2008

    Hi,
    Again a whole year of work for my new library.

    The official release of Chris Hein - Horns Vol.2
    will be: Monday, Oktober 27th 2008


    Listen to the demosongs

    I'm a bit proud because I think its my best library so far.
    Its a 14 GB collection of 17 solo brass and sax instruments & 10 section combinations,
    perfect for Pop, Jazz, Funk & Big-Band.

    Concept:
    The sound of the sections is much better than I expected.
    Maybe thats because I tried a new way to record samples:
    For CHH Vol.2 I got some of the best brass & say player in germany,
    all from the famous, grammy winning WDR-Bigband.
    Usually each player plays his notes in different articulation and dynamics independent from anything else.
    You may know how it sounds when you try to built a section out of instruments coming from different libraries.

    So, this is how I tried to capture the best section-sound for CHH Vol.2:
    First I recorded Andy Haderer, first trumpeter and professor at the cologne univerity of music.
    All other players heard Andys track while playing their track.
    This way, not only all falls, crescendo and stuff have the same length,
    also, the overall sound of the section-sustains sound much more realistic
    because each player designed his tone to match the other perfectly,
    like they are used to when playing with the WDR-Bigband.
    The result is a section with much more power

    CHH Vol.2 is very flexible
    The best way to build a large section is to use all the solo instruments
    and arrange every single track, separately.
    In ECO-Mode, all 17 instruments should fit into one computer plus more.
    My 8-core Quad Mac loads all full versions without a problem.

    But if you want to save time and say, the trombones play unison anyway,
    then a mix of solo-instruments and section might be the best way.

    Section and solo instruments match perfectly together because the sections
    are carefully mixed out of the single samples of the solo-instruments.
    I dragged all 30.000 sample into a timeline in Logic and spent a lot of time
    to find the perfect mix for each group of instruments.

    Interface
    CHH Vol.2 includes the latest Kontakt-Player 2.2.5
    The elaborate interface has 72 edit-features available through 11 pages

    (One of eleven edit pages, the micro-tuner)

    Special features:
    If you know my libraries, you know there are tons of features to shape
    the sound and special programming to enable a good playability.
    The instruments in CHH Vol.2 have a very complex legato system.
    The glide-mode enables to play realistic runs that work through all
    instruments when combing a section.
    We rebuild the whole key-switch concept to provide completely customizable
    key-switch presets rather than just use the KS to switch between articulations.
    This Videos explain some of the main features.

    Key-Vibrato is a new way to perform a custom vibrato on the keyboard-key
    Hot-Keys are special repetition keys to avoid the machine gun effect.
    Hot-Keys can also be used to perform special articulations like falls and doits on the fly.

    Effects:
    In addition to the regular effect section like reverb, delay, chorus, flanger,
    phaser, compressor, 3-band EQ and filter, 21 high-end convolutions, created
    for sax & brass instruments by Sonic-Lab, the maker of "Halls of fame" are
    included.

    Great news Chris!

    I've loved the first volume of CHH and the programming you did for version 1.5
    has just been incredible. Can't wait to pick up the version 2!

    All the best,
    Jeff Sorbo

    Is the "LatinJazz" all CHH2? (of course it is!)... WOW! The trombone and trumpet are excellent... and the section sounds authentic... just the right amount of variation. Arturo Sandoval here I come!

    That's excellent news CH.
    Not trying to degrade the power of Version 1.0, but I had sections of Alto & Tenor in Gigastudio and that caused me to redo my switches in Giga, etc. You had no sections of Reeds, hence my workarounds.
    I used your Trumpet Sections and Trombone, then Gigastudio covered the Alto & Tenor Sections, and also the outstanding Screaming Trumpet library.
    I will still use the Screaming Trumpet library unless you have provided some upper register samples I haven't heard yet.
    Will there be a bundle for me comprising of 1.5 & 2.0? I was having trouble registering on your link and could never buy 1.5, but I would love to get both simultaneously.
    Thanks for using your skills as a Producer for us as I am only a player, and have no time for all of techno talk & programming. Also for listening to your customers and providing upgrades.
    The beauty of this is to have sections of horns all tied to the same switches so I can then select those switches and attach them to pedals for live use. Matching falls & swells, stacattos, etc.
    I have wanted this for a long time.
    Since you are my idol temporarily, where do you wish I purchase this?

    FYI, I work w/ horns occassionally for recordings and free drink jams at local dives after hours, since most of my horn buddies got showroom gigs, but I have had lots of suggestions and help from them for my gig where I have to cover all of the parts Live, no jive sequences either, and I will make sure they hear this latest rendition.

    Most horn guys liked your section choices on Vrs.1.0 so let's hope they like the Reed sections.

    Gotta Go Play,....I will be dreaming until I recieve the package( s ? ).

    Chris,

    I couldn't find this on the Web site. I own version 1.5, which I purchase from Sounds Online.

    Cheers,
    James
