Four of the world´s finest grand pianos, GOLD edition

This GOLD collection includes four of the world´s finest grand pianos: a Bechstein D-280, Steinway D, Bösendorfer 290, and Yamaha C7. Many users asked for a lighter version of our QUANTUM LEAP PIANOS that will allow them to run the most critically acclaimed pianos collection on slower computers. QL Pianos Gold gives you that option, with only the player-perspective mic position included.

Features:

  • includes all pianos from our QUANTUM LEAP PIANOS Platinum in 16-bit
  • One mic position (the best player’s position)
  • Upgrade to the full version at anytime

Quantum Leap Pianos Platinum

EastWest and Quantum Leap proudly present the most detailed collection of the world´s finest grand pianos ever recorded in one of the ´temples of sound´, EASTWEST STUDIOS (more RIAA certified platinum and gold records awarded than any other recording studios) with 3 mic positions for each piano.

Recording StudioThis virtual instrument 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.

EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos Gold Edition, which provides only the player´s perspective mics and 16-bit samples, is available for users with less powerful systems. A low-cost upgrade path is available for users of the Gold Edition who wish to move up to the Full Edition.

Die vier Pianos klingen gut, sogar sehr gut, auch wenn es nicht die Platinum-Version mit 24bit und 3 Mikrofon-Positionen ist. Die Installation gestaltete sich aber wieder mehr als schwierig. Zuerst ging die Seriennummer nicht, das wurde in den USA korrigiert. Dann passten die runtergeladenen Instrumente nicht zur Lizenz. Insgesamt 3 Mal musste ich die 49 GB herunterladen, bevor ich den ersten Ton hörte.

Braucht sehr viel Arbeitsspeicher! Ist der nicht gegeben, können die Pianos kaum genutzt werden. Aber sicher ein gutes Produkt.

"Pianos is the best software available today. The recording quality and playability are fantastic. These are the only digital piano sounds that faithfully reproduce the resonances of a well tuned piano."

Quantum Leap Pianos is the most detailed and best sounding collection of virtual pianos I have ever used. The PLAY interface gives me a ton of control and flexibility, but it´s also really easy to use which allows me to experiment and get the sound I want quickly.”
