Experience 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 Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra 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 Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold's PLAY engine. This deceptively simple reverb lets you conjure up the perfect ambience to add extra life and realism to your tracks.

The Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Gold Complete blew my mind. When I first started playing with it, I couldn't believe the lush violin strings, the realistic winds, and powerful percussion instruments. This is a fantastic choice for those who compose for film, TV, or video games. I love the convolution reverb and convincing release trails, which gave this sampling software that big Hollywood sound. It totally made my projects for my Berklee class sound full and professional (even the little ones I that I threw together in Sibelius when I had a time crunch). I was also impressed that I could upgrade seamlessly to the Platinum platform. Plus, I could just change my 16-bit files created in Gold into 24-bit files by using the Platinum samples. That's great because my computer is too slow for the 24-bit right now. The repeating notes that change slightly to avoid the machine gun affect adds the realism needed for compositions. The keyswitches are also rad! I don't have to pull up a new instrument track to get different articulations going (from staccato to legato on the same track). I can switch on the track with a MIDI note, or play it and hit the keyswitches with my left hand to access the change in articulation. I used this especially for a flute solo in my orchestration. It made it alive (not the stale sameness I would normally use, and it was fast and easy). On the fly when I'm playing from my MIDI controller, it is great to just mess around and get some ideas of what I want to lay down. Not only that, it makes me sound better than I actually am, which is always a plus. You don't need to do a lot of tweaking to get Symphonic Orchestra to sound good. Many of the higher-end samplers require a lot of finagling, but this one is ready, right out of the box. Great price, for an amazing product. This is a definite must for media composers.
