Symphonic Orchestra PLAY Edition
A lot of time and effort went into creating these 64-bit (with 32-bit compatibility) versions. There is no other orchestral product on the market that offers such upward compatibility for beginners to professional composers, and it is the most awarded orchestral collection.
EW-177 EWQLSO PLATINUM PLUS COMPLETE contains 16-bit and 24-bit samples so users can compose 16-bit (for 50% more efficiency) and render 24-bit (for the best quality) with a switch on the interface, each with three mic positions and full articulations (194GB)
The boxed/shipping version will be delivered on an external USB 3.0 hard drive for fast and easy installation!
The following versions are available:
EW-178 EWQLSO PLATINUM COMPLETE
contains 24-bit samples, each with three mic positions and full articulations (117GB)
EW-179 EWQLSO Gold COMPLETE
contains 16-bit samples, with one mic position and full articulations (33GB)
EW-180 EWQLSO Silver COMPLETE

The Way an Orchestra Should SoundEASTWEST/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 new 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 (PLATINUM and PLATINUM PLUS versions only) any combination for the ultimate in real-time tone and ambience control.
PlayPLAY is a 64-bit (with 32-bit compatibility) Advanced Sample Engine with built-in Network Control* (plug-in or standalone). PLAY is Included with all new 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.
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).
If you still need more power, our 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.
