Meticulously-sampled instruments deliver variety and phenomenal sound quality

The timpani, snare drums, cymbals, bass drums, and metals contained in Hollywood Orchestral Percussion Diamond were meticulously sampled with such astounding detail and variety that you'll be hard pressed to find a composition that you don't want to use them in. You get some of the most extensive and fluid timpani ever sampled, in addition to bass drums and a Mahler Hammer, lending unprecedented impact to your arrangements. You also get orchestral chimes that were sampled in a way that mimics the sound of real church bells, as the instrument was originally intended. For the first time, an extensive array of epic anvils has been sampled, giving you unparalleled access to this rare percussion instrument. On top of that, you get a celeste that has been captured in a multi-mic position environment with extremely low noise. All samples were recorded at 24-bit resolution with 5 user-controllable mic positions, giving you pristine sound quality and an enormous amount of control.

Make your ensembles come to life with powerful effects and processors

Along with Hollywood Orchestral Percussion Diamond, EastWest introduced their upgraded PLAY 4 virtual instrument engine.
