Can EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP improve on the most critically acclaimed, most award winning virtual orchestra ever produced? Quite simply: YES! Presenting the PLATINUM PROFESSIONAL EXPANSION (PRO XP).
Developed by multiple award winning producers DOUG ROGERS and NICK PHOENIX and recorded in a 'state of the art' concert hall by Grammy winning classical recording engineer PROF. KEITH O. JOHNSON, this enormous 24-bit 138 gigabytes (incl. the original platinum edition) virtual instrument eclipses all others with the highest level of fidelity and realism.
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 any combination for the ultimate in real-time tone and ambience control.
PLATINUM PRO XP also features the revolutionary QLegato technology among its many articulation choices, enabling you to create unprecedentedly smooth connected lines at fast or slow speeds with the strings, woodwinds, and brass.
Currently in use by the who's who of the composing world, the PLATINUM EDITION demonstrates the level of commitment by EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP to reproducing the pure beauty of orchestral acoustic instruments in the space they were designed for, and we invite you to experience the reverence that drives their obsession by listening to the brand new audio demos (available as MP3 or WAV formats) that can be found by selecting the 'demos' button above.
