Best Service releases Chris Hein Chromatic Harmonica

Chris Hein Chromatic Harmonica

Best Service has announced Chris Hein Chromatic Harmonica, a virtual chromatic harmonica instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Play harmonica like Stevie Wonder or Toots Thielemann – but on your MIDI-keyboard.

With almost 7.000 samples, 14 articulations, up to 8 dynamic-layers and a full range of 4 octaves, CH-Harmonica is definitely the most detailed sampled Chromatic Harmonica on the planet.
The user interface holds tons of features on several pages to shape the sound 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 of your MIDI-keyboard.
To achieve the feeling of a live performance, the user interface offers four “Dynamic Modes”, „Key-Vibrato“, „Hot-Keys“ and a revolutionary new concept of articulation presets .

One of the most unique features in CH-Harmonica are the Phase-Aligned samples. After six months of research, Chris Hein found a solution to phase-synchronize the samples. This enables an absolutely perfect blending between six dynamic layers.
During the development of CH-Harmonica most attention was spent on how to work with dynamic expression.

The library is available to purchase for 129 EUR / $149 USD.
