Hollywoodwinds is cinesamples’ new flagship orchestral woodwind library developed exclusively for Kontakt. Featuring wonderfully organic recordings, and groundbreaking programming, HWW is quickly becoming the leading woodwind solution for composers around the world.

Hollywoodwinds, CINESAMPLES neues Flaggschiff ist eine Orchester Holzbläser Library, speziell programmiert für Kontakt. Wunderschöne natürliche Aufnahmen sowie die hervorragende Programmierung haben Hollywoodwinds sehr schnell zur ersten Wahl für Komponisten auf der ganzen Welt werden lassen.

The groundbreaking new method of sync on the fly. Kontakt will automatically recognize your sequence’s tempo and playback your scales and textures in time (live). In addition all patches using this engine have samples which have been recorded at multiple tempos. Kontakt will automatically and intelligently choose the correct sample and micro adjust it into place- providing incredibly realistic results and leaving the composer to worry about more important things.

Choose from exclusively Stage Mic patches or Close Mics patches, or using the hybrid patches create your own custom mix – live with no artifacts. Automate your levels using Kontakt 3.5+ or use our presets. Flavor your mix with the 3 Band EQ pre-sets.

Using Kontakt 3.5+ you can actually visually see the music you are creating, live! The notation window displays incredibly detailed conductor – piano reductions of your current sample being triggered. Very useful for composers, educators and anyone curious.


Straight down the chain we have focused our sound to emulate the voice of the Hollywood scoring stages. From the choice of ensemble, the players themselves, the gear, the mix, the orchestrations, the scale tunings,…. the entire concept is planned to sound with that one goal in mind. Plenty of trail/error, score studying, lunch meeting, phone calling and general research was gathered in pre production so we blatantly tried to squeeze all the detail and life we possibly could at the sessions and in post. This is the extra step the great hollywood composers and orchestrator’s provide on a daily basis.

detail 6

Our method of using tempo synced pre-records with typical keyboard patches is extremely efficient and realistic. The stacked patches, such as the octaves patch, allow the user to voice the ensemble over several different octaves in an authentic hollywood stack (see user manual for details). And of course there is the tutti patch, featuring everybody playing (including the piccolo). There is a whole other half to the library after you check out the GB’s of pre records.

All that creepy stuff the winds do when the spider is attacking, when the beautiful face is morphing, when the eyes turn yellow??? We decided we needed to have that too. From unison ensemble quarter tone bends, to 12 tone cluster stacks to massive collection of Atonal Rips to clarinet “meowing” to multi- piccolo flutters you are sure to find something you need for your track here.

Apfelwahn Redaktionstipp


Das gefällt mir

Als zusätzliche Library für Verzierungen, Effekte und eine besondere Note gefällt mir Hollywoodwinds außerordentlich gut. Mit wenig Speicherplatz und geringen Anforderungen an den Arbeitsspeicher erhält man einen Quell der Inspiration: Aus den zahlreichen Textures entstehen schnell Ideen für ein Stück, die sich dank des großartigen Workflows (vereinfacht durch die Voreinstellungen für jeden einstellbaren Parameter) flink umsetzen lassen.

Amazona sehr gut 2 Sterne



Für knapp 230 Euro bekommt man „geballtes Holz“. Beim Preis tue ich mich schwer: Der Klang ist gut, der Preis scheint moderat, aber man bedenke: Es gibt nur geblasenes Holz! Kein Blech, nichts Gestrichenes ... „nur“ Holz und nur als Ensemble - keine einzelnen Instrumente! Man hat nicht die „Kontrolle“ über die einzelnen Register, wie man das von VSL, EW, HSO und Co kennt. Wer hier schön und flexibel spielbare Einzelstimmen erwartet, wird enttäuscht! Alleine mit Hollywoodwinds wird man im Alltag nicht hinkommen.

Die fertigen „Sequenzen“, Runs, „Texturen“, welche sich an das Host-Tempo anpassen - und das ganz reibungslos automatisch, gefallen mir sehr gut! Die Hollywoodwinds sind ein klarer Kauftipp für alle, die ein praxisnahes Paket suchen und Arbeitsgeschwindigkeit (da vieles vorgefertigt vorliegt) zu schätzen wissen.
