The large amount of up to 38 articulations is what makes "Chris Hein - Horns " so realistic. All articulations can be assigned over 18 keyswitch-keys, located on the lower notes of the keyboard. Access to every articulation is made possible via an intuitive combination of keyswitches and MIDI-controllers.
'Keyswitching' is an elegant means of enabling the user to directly and immediately access different playing techniques from within a single patch. It uses pre-programmed MIDI notes to instantaneously switch between different articulations, meaning it is no longer necessary to reload each variant individually. The keyswitches themselves are exclusively controller keys. They make no sound, but instead are used to switch the entire group of samples which the main instrument keys trigger.
Usually key-switches just switch between different fixed articulations or other pre-programmed sound variations. In CHH Vol1 the keyswitches are used to switch between complex sets of presets with 21 adjustable parameters. 18 Key-Switch presets are available. The KS-Presets are allocated to C0 - F1, in the lower area of your keyboard. The keyswitch is pressed prior to playing any actual instrument notes. The switchover occurs instantly without any time lag.
Pressing a key between C0 and F1 on your keyboard has the same effect as turning the KS-Preset knob in the GUI. You can also assign the KS-Presets to any MIDI controller in the CC-Settings page. The selected articulation is displayed on the left side of the GUI. All parameters on the settings page, except Vib. Vol, Vib.Tune, Crescendo-Speed and Glide-Speed are adjustable parameters which are stored in the KS-Presets. If you make changes to any of these parameters, they are automatically stored in the KS-Preset. To save the KS-Presets permanently, simply save the whole instrument.
