Overview

The EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Platinum Set includes the entire orchestral sample library set. Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion.

This virtual repositioning of the listener in a concert hall environment offers a surprising amount of tonal control, virtually eliminating the need for EQ; and the ambient control, using any combination of these 3 stereo tracks, eliminates the need for artificial reverb (which usually sounds artificial).

You can create the sound you want. With other orchestral libraries, you get what they give you, and apart from adding reverb and EQ, you have virtually no control over the sound of the instruments. The control of tonality and ambience in the EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra enables each user to "design" the sound of the orchestra to suit the work that is being created - no other orchestral sample collection offers this!

Use the stage mics for a typical big Hollywood sound; boost certain instruments by adding a hint of the close mics; add in the hall surround
mics to create a surround sound mix, or to add natural hall reverb. Finally, you can say goodbye to lifeless, dry studio recordings.

In addition to this unprecedented control of tonality and ambiance; the real ambiance of the hall, combined with the automatic sample switching of up and down strokes that is built into the Native Instruments audio engine and interface (included with each volume of the library), has virtually eliminated the machine gun effect when playing fast repetitions.

All of the players were recorded in position. All of the instruments and sections were chromatically sampled, with multiple dynamics, with extremely dynamic and expressive articulations, and although the sample library is huge, it has been programmed to be extremely easy to use. For example, an efficient method of composing would be to use just the close mics or the stage mics during the composition stage, adding a combination of the 3 stereo pairs to adjust ambiance and tonality in the final mixing stage.

The EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra software was produced by Doug Rogers from EastWest and Nick Phoenix from Quantum Leap, who collectively have received over 30 international awards for sample libraries they have created.

No Sampler Required!

Each volume comes as a virtual instrument which includes a high-performance Native Instruments interface powered by the efficient KONTAKT audio engine, including Direct-from-Disk*, for Mac and PC (*With
freely-downloadable Direct-from-Disk extension).

Each virtual instrument in the Symphonic Orchestra Platinum collection combines intuitive handling with excellent sound quality, and functions as a plug-in instrument, without the need for a sampler.

For the sonically adventureous, many sound shaping tools have been built in to the interface. Powerful multi-mode filters, envelopes, and LFOs give a wealth of creative possibilities. Integrated high-quality reverb, chorus, and delay effects are also provided.

Direct from Disk playback easily handles large samples beyond available RAM (which is assignable).

Professional sound quality with advanced 32-bit processing; eight-part multitimbrality and 256 voice polyphony allow for lush arrangements. The clean and intuitive interface never lets the technology get in the way of your creativity. All important instrument parameters can be immediately adjusted without the need to page, scroll, or fumble through a manual.
