Chris Hein Solo Violin has been upgraded to Version 1.2 with the addition of a second Solo Violin: “The Italian Violin”. Chris rented a very old Italian violin made by Augusto Pollastri, which was sold after the recording sessions for $100,000. The articulations and functions of the Italian Violin are absolutely the same as the original CH-Solo Violin, but it has a completely different sound. It´s a wonderful sounding instrument, much richer and warmer than the first CH-Solo Violin.
The Italian Violin is now included in Chris Hein Solo Violin version 1.2. Chris Hein Solo Violin 1.2 MSRP: $259.00
Registered owners of CH Solo Violin v1.0 or v1.1 can purchase an Update (download ~ 3GB)

Registered owners of CH Solo Strings Complete will find a free Update to Chris Hein Solo Violin 1.2 in their Best Service user account.
“There are many orchestral brass libraries on the market ranging in different styles and character, Orchestral Brass Complete gives me more than enough control to write for Brass in any context. The Expressive Dynamic articulations really bring my lyrical lines to life and the shorts give me enough bite for those epic fanfares.”
Chris Heins’ popular horn, wind, guitar and bass collections are some of the most deeply sampled products on the market and show a remarkable eye for musical detail. The veteran producer has now released Chris Hein Solo Violin, a 2.73GB instrument which runs on the free Kontakt Player (included with the library) and the full version of Kontakt 5.
After my recent review of Best Service’s Chris Hein Winds Compact, it’s now time for me to take a closer look at it’s cousin library Chris Hein Orchestral Brass Complete. Both libraries, “Winds” and “Brass” are available in two different versions – “Complete” and “Compact”. Opposed to the Compact version, which comes with only five essential articulations, the Complete version offers a whopping total of 16 articulations per instrument and a lot more control and modulation options I’ll get into detail on later in the review.
Quite simply the best virtual violin ever created.
Chris Hein – Solo Violin outshines all previous violin 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 Violin features high-grade sound quality and incredible realistic articulations. This library offers everything you have been missing with previous virtual string instruments.
