EASTWEST announces release of Best service Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2 – Section HorNS

EASTWEST, exclusive US distributor of Best Service products, is pleased to announce the release of Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2 – Section Horns, the perfect companion to Chris Hein Horns Vol. 1 (version 1.5). Based on the popular NI Kontakt Player 2, the new library delivers a wide range of 17 solo instruments and 10 section combinations, perfect for a variety of musical genres including pop, jazz, funk and big-band. 

With up to 2,000 samples of alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet, tenor trombone, and bass trombone, the instruments of Vol. 2 are equipped with the right size of clarity to produce brass sections for a small funk group or a complete band. The easy to use interface allows for the solo instruments to be effortlessly combined into small or large sections. Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2 features different legato and play mode features to allow for realistic note transitions. To achieve the feeling of a live performance, the collection offers key-vibrato, hotkeys and the revolutionary new key-switch concept.

“Chris Hein Horns Vol. 2. is the perfect extension to Chris Hein Horns Vol. 1, version 1.5,” says Doug Rogers, founder and CEO of EASTWEST. “While Vol. 1 (version 1.5) was designed for solo performances, Vol. 2 is focused on section playing, providing producers with all the tools necessary to create a great brass production.”

All the instruments featured in the collection have been played by famous big-band musicians in single sessions but to each other, resulting in perfect harmony of the sections while allowing maximum flexibility for the producer. Vol. 2 presents performances of up to eight velocities and 20 articulations per note, yielding a large range of tone and variation.
