This collection includes four of the world's finest grand pianos: a Bechstein D-280, Steinway D, Bösendorfer 290, and Yamaha C7. The PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections.

Many users prefer a lighter version of the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP PIANOS that will allow them to run the most critically acclaimed pianos collection on slower computers. EW/QL Pianos Gold gives you that option, with only the player-perspective mic position included. When you do have the hardware you need for the full version, the upgrade costs only the difference in price.

- Load any piano or mic position individually (each piano is between 10GB and 17GB)
- 10-18 velocities per note of sustain and sustain with pedal
- 8-12 velocities per note of repetitions and repetitions with pedal
- 5-8 velocities of soft pedal and soft pedal with sustain pedal
- 16 velocity staccato on every piano

PLAY is a 64-bit** (with 32-bit compatibility) Advanced Sample Engine with built-in Network Control* (plug-in or standalone).

As Beautiful As It Sounds - Interface designed to eliminate clutter, including only the controls needed for each individual virtual instrument

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
