East West's Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold Complete puts you on the conductor's platform of your own Hollywood-level orchestra. This powerful virtual instrument gives you the sound and feel of a full orchestra, taking advantage of East West's advanced Play sample-player software to deliver phenomenal details and realistic articulation. Included in Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold's sample library are over 35GB of strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, pianos, and more - all controlled by a remarkably easy-to-use interface. When you need a wide selection of super-realistic orchestral sounds, you can count on East West's Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold!

East West Symphonic Orchestra Gold Complete at a Glance:
  • The power of East West's Play sample player software
  • Simple control over complex articulations
  • Add breathtaking depth with onboard convolution reverb
The power of East West's Play sample player software

When it comes to sample players, East West's Play engine is as close to bulletproof as it gets. It sounds amazing and seamlessly integrates with any 64-bit or 32-bit environment. It's actually capable of accessing up to 128GB of RAM, so no matter how powerful your computer is, Play can take full advantage of its resources. But sheer power isn't the only great thing about Play; it also adds a serious level of usability to Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold, allowing you to easily preview sounds and tweak settings. You'll also love its column-based browser, which is particularly useful when sorting through QLSO Gold's massive sound library.

Simple control over complex articulations

Here's one of the most important things that East West's Play engine brings to Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold: brilliantly simplified articulations. There are several excellent-sounding symphonic virtual instruments out there, but few handle the control of advanced articulations as smoothly and intuitively as Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold. That's a really good thing, especially considering how intensely detailed you can get with these articulations. There's an Articulations List that serves as a reference for all of the available expressions for each instrument (no need for key-switching charts), plus Play gives you great performance styles too, including Portamento, Repetition, Legato, and Round Robin Reset.

Add breathtaking depth with onboard convolution reverb

In Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold, all samples were recorded from the conductor's position - the best seat in the house. But what if you want to add room ambience or space to your performance? Before you go reaching for that processor-intensive reverb plug-in, check this out. East West built a fabulous convolution reverb right into QLSO Gold's Play engine. This deceptively simple reverb lets you conjure up the perfect ambience to add extra life and realism to your tracks.

East West Symphonic Orchestra Gold Complete Features:
  • A software instrument that puts you in command of a complete symphonic orchestra

    • Portamento
    • Repetition
    • Legato

beyond my hopes

This software is outstanding. The sounds are awesome. The ability to alter the articulation is mind blowing. You now have the possibility to do more than you could hope for. You need to keep your wits about you, move slowing, and be careful to do all you can do. My only wish would be for a few more samples.

Love EW QL!

Wonderful! I've used QL gold for 4 years now, and is wonderful for what I need! The quality of the strings especially is great, and it's nice to have such a wide selection of different strokes/bow speeds/vibrato styles.
