Recorded by 11-time Grammy nominated classical recording engineer Prof. Keith O. Johnson, the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA is the most awarded orchestral collection ever, and the only orchestral collection to be recorded in a "state of the art" concert hall where orchestras mainly perform.

To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three mic positions, close, stage (conductor‘s position) and hall. By selecting different mic positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires. This eliminates the need for artificial reverb.

The EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA eclipses all others with the highest level of fidelity and realism. Get that big "Hollywood Sound" film/TV/games directors and producers seek "out of the box"; no other orchestral collection comes close or is as easy to use!

The Way an Orchestra Should Sound

EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP Symphonic Orchestra has already come out on top in a recent roundup of orchestral collections for its level of warmth and detail. Now with the incorporation of PLAY, users of the upgraded EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP Symphonic Orchestra will experience the benefits of the sample engine immediately. With the typical orchestral composition encompassing a large amount of instruments, EASTWEST’s PLAY software will streamline the process by allowing many more instruments to be loaded at one time than with previous systems.

Beyond the orchestra's phenomenal recording quality is its ability to breathe life into the virtual world, creating a real space and filling it with sound. In the past, this meant adding reverb and effects, further digitizing and degrading the overall quality of your music. EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP accomplish this through separately recording the natural hall ambience after the instrument has stopped playing until the sound has actually ceased. The software triggers this "release trail" at the end of every note and adjusts the dynamics so that the samples blend seamlessly, truly placing the listener in the hall with the orchestra.

Each instrument and orchestral section is chromatically sampled at three different mic positions (close, stage and hall) allowing you to mix together instantly within the included PLAY sampler any combination for the ultimate in real-time tone and ambience control.

PLAY

PLAY is a 64-bit (with 32-bit compatibility) Advanced Sample Engine with built-in Network Control (plug-in or standalone). PLAY is included with EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP Virtual (software) Instruments.

Multiple Mic Positions

- All instruments were sampled with three different mic positions, allowing you to mix together any combination of mics using the interface for the ultimate in real-time tone and ambiance control. This feature enables users to customize the sound of the orchestra to their own requirements.
- Please note: while most computers suitable for running professional music software will run one of the mic positions (what you typically get with other orchestra libraries), you may need a more advanced system to have all options available.

Mic Mixer

- Control all mic positions for the orchestra, choirs, pianos, and other instruments with multiple mic positions with the built-in mic mixer
- Now taken a step further, do it right in the patch
- Load, unload, adjust, pan, mute mic positions as you wish

Load MORE thanks to 64-bit support

- 64-bit support allows you to load many more instruments and voices, limited only by your system RAM (32-bit support is included also)
- While most high-end computers will support 16Gb, a very small set of high-performance enterprise computers (with Microsoft Vista Ultimate) can already use 128Gb of RAM. As hardware develops, the theoretical limit is 17,179,869,184 gigabytes = 16 exabytes, or 17 billion gigabytes!

Networking Support

- If you still need more power, the NETWORK CONTROL allows you to load instruments on other machines controlled from your host computer
- No more trips back and forth between computers, no more KVM switching when loading projects
- No need to buy additional software
- The PLAY system is a professional fully integrated solution for those with the most demanding production requirements

- Forget browsing through complicated patch names: pick the instrument and play
- Turn on/off articulations as you wish
- Articulations list also serves as reference for all expressions within the instrument (no need to look up key-switches in charts)
- Save your favorite configuration for quick retrieval
