Simply the best virtual Cello ever created!
Chris Hein – Solo Cello EXtended outshines all previous Cello libraries. Never before, a sample library of this extent has been dedicated towards a single string instrument: Recorded with greatest care and endless details, precisely edited and merged into a practical and musical instrument for NI's Kontakt Player offering an elaborated custom-tailored user-interface with comprehensive scripting. Chris Hein – Solo Cello features high-grade sound quality and incredible realistic articulations. This library offers everything you have been missing with previous virtual string instruments.
You receive over 30,000 samples, up to 38 articulations, four different legato transitions as well as extensive phase-alignment of all samples to guarantee smooth inaudible crossfades of up to eight velocity layers. This feature-set allows the creation of authentic cello-arrangements unprecedented on a computer.
This library benefits from producer Chris Hein's 30 years spanning experience in the field of sampling and library production, resulting in a product offering highest versatility, configurability and practical use.
Chris Hein - Solo Cello EXtended is a bundle of four fantastic sounding Solo Cello Instruments, all with a unique sound and played by professional studio musicians. All instruments have been recorded with great care and detail. 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.
The following instruments are included:
- VLC1 Romantic Cello has a hifi sound with extreme dynamic and a precise and clear tone.
- VLC2 Modern Cello has a more warm and rich sound. You can hear the old and noble wood.
- VLC3 British Cello as EX-Instrument
- VLC4 German Cello as EX-Instrument
Chris Hein – Solo Cello 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 Cello 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. 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 Cello for incredible moments of suspense.
