Chris Hein - Solo Violin is a bundle of four fantastic sounding Solo Violin Instruments. The four instruments in CH-Solo Violin have been recorded with great care and detail and handpicked instruments, all with a unique sound and played by professional studio musicians. Their virtual counterparts have been further optimized for playability and performance (EX instruments), thus saving your computer resources and still granting you access to all required articulations for authentic performances.

Chris Hein – Solo Violin EXtended delivers outstanding, detailed and highly expressive results as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble – in all relevant genres ranging from classical music and film scores to gypsy-jazz, folk and pop ballads.
And there is even more: Chris Hein – Solo Violin EXtended provides sound-designers, composers of film- and game soundtracks and experimental musicians with special effect-sounds and uncommon articulations with partly exceptional dynamics, such as flautando, flageolets and ponticello. Therefore, the pitch range of the virtual instrument has been expanded in comparison to the original violin. The special effect sounds are further supported by the internal tenfold DSP-effects-rack. Feel free to create complex sound clusters, dense atmospheres and surreal sound worlds out of a single violin for incredible moments of suspense.
By using the Ensemble Maker, the solo instrument can easily be turned into an ensemble being able to take advantage of all available articulations. Or you use the Multis with enembles created by Chris Hein with pre-set stereo image and fine detuning for an intense ensemble effect.
Chris Hein – Solo Violin EXtended equally serves demanding string instrument enthusiasts as well as composers needing more than just excellent sounding samples but also comprehensive details, a full offering of articulations and a versatile adaptation to their preferred workflow.
On one hand, the instrument offers a comprehensive full sample set with all articulations being ready to play on the keyboard. Thanks to the library's modular approach on the other hand, significantly reduced variations may also be called up with fast load times and low memory requirements.
By using the clean start configuration, the instrument is initially loaded in a sustain variation while further articulations and functions can simply be added at any time if needed. This way, you may as well work fluently and efficiently on compact and mobile production systems using a lot less memory.
Chris Hein – Solo Violin EXtended reproduces the sound of internationally renowned violinist Naomi Binder and her excellent instrument. Thanks to her incredible hearing and unprecedented precision, paired with artistic discipline and routine, it was possible to accurately capture the violin across its full pitch range (up to F6) in all its dynamic facets from most gentle to loudest tones.
As with all his productions, Chris Hein decided for a close mic'ing in a dry recording environment. Combined with the twin impulse response based reverberation sections, the intentional dry sound of the library allows adapting and fitting the instrument perfectly into variable contexts. Dedicated convolution engines for the instrument's body and the room itself allow creation of a nearly arbitrary acoustic environments ranging from intimate closeness to large concert halls. In difference to the fixed acoustics of several competitive products, Chris Hein – Solo Violin EXtended is sonically exceptionally variable and additionally easy to combine with almost any other library being offered.
