Chris Hein - Winds

is a collection of 13 deeply samples orchestral Woodwind instrument

With approx. 8.000 samples per instrument, 14 articulations, up to 8 dynamic-layers and a highly customizable user interface, the instruments in CH-Winds  are definitely the most detailed sampled orchestral Woodwinds on the planet.

The user-interface holds tons of features on several pages to customize the sound and playability exactly the way you want it.

However, if you don‘t feel like editing, just play and explore the 26 pre-programmed Key-Switch presets ranging from A-1 to A#1 on the lower keys on your midi-keyboard.

To achieve the feeling of a live performance, the user interface offers 4 "Dynamic Modes", „Note-Head Designer“, „Key-Vibrato“, „Hot-Keys“ and a revolutionary new concept of articulation presets. Using the included TouchOSC Remote-Controller for iDevices it is remarkably easy to control the instruments and create the most detailed, realistic woodwind tracks ever.

CH-Winds 2.0 is an upgraded and improved version of the original instruments. The completely overhauled interface and streamlined scripting mean that it’s never been easier to achieve authentic winds with minimal fuss. The original samples have been tweaked to offer an unmatched level of nuance in each of the 13 orchestral woodwind instruments.
