Chris Hein Orchestral Brass EXtended is an extensive orchestral brass library meeting highest expectations regarding sound quality, expression and applicability. With the upgrade from Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Compact to the Extended Version you not only get access to all available articulations from the Complete Version but also three additional low brass instruments plus 6 additional ensemble patches. All in all, Chris Hein Orchestral Brass EXtended contains 20GB of additional content - more than twice as much as the original library and over 43,000 new samples.
F-Tuba, Sousaphone, and Euphonium
In fact, these three Low Brass Instruments have more articulations and samples than the original Brass Instruments - there are 24 articulations in total for each of the Tuba, Sousaphone and Euphonium.
In addition to 5 different sustains, 6 different shorts and 5 different special articulations, you’ll find:
Added Repetitions in 16th and 8th notes with adjustable speed
6 new short articulations and hundreds of stunning one shot effect samples
Chris has sampled these instruments in exquisite detail, with 16 dynamic layers for the normal shorts. This provides a huge range of variation and expression. Short repetitions, dirty attacks, growls and ornaments were deliberately recorded with character and expression, so they’ll bring unparalleled realism to your parts, simulating the natural playing nuances of a real-life player.
For an epic Hollywood sound Chris Hein added six Ensemble Instrument patches using the same mixing techniques he used for his Ensemble Strings library, Chris has created extra large, epic Brass Ensembles from a careful mixture of the solo instruments. Thanks to the sonic quality and the extremely wide dynamic range, this version of Orchestral Brass offers instantly fat and full sounding Ensembles for each instrument group.
The low brass ensemble is a particular highlight, with extended articulations including: Ensemble repetitions, 6 new short articulations, 12 different Note Heads and a large variety of spectacular Ensemble Effects.
Note-Head Variations - Changing the Note-head variations has always been a standout feature of Chris Hein libraries, and with Orchestral Brass EXtended the number of different attack articulations increases from 6 to 12. This is the easiest way to bring more character, variations and nuance to your brass performances. Instantly switch between all versions of clean or dirty attacks by just moving the Note-Head fader.
Simulated Mute Controls - The simulated mute controls inside Orchestral Brass EXtended are effective, realistic and first and foremost lots of fun. Because they’re modelled, rather than sampled, Orchestral Brass EXtended consists of a reasonable size without multi-sampling every different type of mute. All the EXtended instruments are armed with the mute modelling, accessible from the front panel. Included are five different Mutes: Bucket, Cup, Harmon, Straight, and Stop mute.
Inside Orchestral Brass EXtended the playback engine received a few tweaks - the most notable one being the “offset” fader within the Legato engine. This offers a whole new world of portamento transitions, from a full slide between two notes, to a more subtle glide. Using the offset function in combination with the speed fader brings and even wider range of options, especially when using MIDI controller data for automation inside your DAW.
