"IT'S SYMPH-LY THE BEST - 10 OUT OF 10" - COMPUTER MUSIC (UK) REVIEW (MUSIC PERFORMANCE AWARD)

"This is by far the most lush, beautiful sounding commercially released orchestra library to date. Simply stunning." - KEYBOARD (USA) REVIEW (KEY BUY AWARD)

"A big, bountiful, powerful, expressive, sonically superior collection of top-quality orchestral sounds, recorded in a first-class concert hall, played, recorded and programmed by expert practitioners, waiting to burst into life in your compositions" - SOUND ON SOUND (UK) REVIEW

“The EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA samples are now the core of my template. No other orchestral samples have achieved this level of realism and fidelity. I can actually hear my compositions come together as I write them, because EWQLSO has the sound of a world class orchestra, right out of the box. It's a whole new world. I’m loving it!” - DAVID NEWMAN (Award Winning Composer of over 70 films)

“As the musical director and keyboard player for Paul McCartney I need to use the best orchestral sounds available and I have found them in the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA Sample Library.” - WIX WICKENS (Musical Director/Keyboards - PAUL McCARTNEY)

“With millions attending CIRQUE DU SOLEIL shows each year, we demand the very best music creation tools available - and like an exquisite fine wine, the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA is not just a bunch of fake sounding samples, but a REAL ORCHESTRA AT YOUR FINGERTIPS! - RENÉ DUPÉRÉ (Composer - CIRQUE DU SOLEIL, CREATIONS NETZA)

"This is a beautifully recorded (and expensive sounding!) orchestra and to have it at your fingertips at the compositional level is quite remarkable and that is before you even consider the way you are able to shift and blend microphone positions to suit the mood of the job in hand. Virtual is not a word I use very often but the Symphonic Orchestra is virtually perfect!" - PAUL HARTNOLL - ORBITAL

"EWQLSO is a must-have product for the professional orchestral composer" - THE GUIDE TO MIDI ORCHESTRATION

"A moment or two with the manual is enough to convince anyone with an interest in recording techniques that this is a very serious undertaking. Talk about going the whole nine yards: these guys are purists to the point of obsession. I can't compare this to every orchestral sample library on the market but if there's a better one I'll be amazed." - SOUNDGENERATOR.COM REVIEW (June 2004)

"In short, this is a staggering library, and it is a rare treat that we see such a well planned and thought out product come to fruition in this way. The recording quality is simply exquisite." - MUSIC4GAMES.NET REVIEW (July 2004)

VOLUME TWO - WOODWINDS
(see below for instruments and articulations listing)

EASTWEST / QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA
A DOUG ROGERS AND NICK PHOENIX PRODUCTION
A PROF. KEITH O. JOHNSON RECORDING

The EASTWEST / QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA was recorded where orchestral instruments sound their most natural - in a ‘state of the art’ Concert Hall.

Listen to the pure beauty of the "critically acclaimed" Symphonic Orchestra and "state of the art" 125 million dollar Concert Hall that were captured, using custom built recording equipment, by audio legend - Prof. Keith O. Johnson - recipient of two GRAMMYS, plus eight additonal GRAMMY nominations for his 90 plus Classical Recordings.

This is the first 24-bit orchestral sample library to include three simultaneous stereo mic setups (close, stage and hall), so users can mix together any combination of mic positions to control tonality and ambience.

A major benefit of this recording philosophy is the tonal control the three simultaneous stereo tracks provide. Users can literally alter the tone and ambience of any instrument or section by incrementally moving out from the close mics, to the stage mics, to the hall mics (an audio zoom) in real-time!


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 three 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 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 ambience; the real ambience 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 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 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 three stereo pairs to adjust ambience and tonality in the final mixing stage.

The EASTWEST / QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA 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 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.

    PROF. KEITH O. JOHNSON

    Prof. Keith O. Johnson has spent over 30 years developing a reputation for innovative thinking, technical achievement and musicianship which has elevated him to a position in the audio industry occupied by only a handful of visionaries. His intensive investigation of electronic behavior and acoustic perception have led most recently to his development (with digital engineer Michael Pflaumer) of the revolutionary High Definition Compatible Digital encoding process, produced and marketed by Pacific Microsonics (recently acquired by Microsoft). HDCD is widely considered to be the most accurate recording process ever invented.

    His 90-plus recordings have long been considered the standard for high fidelity, and include two GRAMMY award-winners and eight additional GRAMMY nominations.

    SOME REVIEWS OF HIS RECORDINGS -

    "Its sonic quality is most impressive in stereo spread, depth, presence, and resolution of detail, with rock-solid image stability, in a spacious ambiance -- a demonstration-quality recording if there ever was one." --McKelvey, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE

    "This may be some of the best sound Keith Johnson has ever gotten out of Symphony Hall in Minneapolis, and certainly Oue's most convincing work with the Minnesota players, who sound for all the world more like the Philadelphia than that orchestra does these days . . . how Johnson got that huge climax at the end of the Dances cleanly onto tape transcends engineering and goes into the realm of magic." -- Harry Pearson, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND

    "Once again, Keith Johnson has raised the bar of excellence in the recording of a symphony orchestra. . . It's a fabulous recording and a super performance of the SYMPHONIC DANCES, and a testament to the brilliance of Keith Johnson and his associates." -- Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia.com

    "Keith Johnson's engineering, mastering and production have, in this case, produced the finest orchestral recording I have ever heard. It is instantly among that handful of CDs I will carry with me to audition sound systems, or that I will play to show off my own. Listening to this recording is one of those exultant musical experiences that will remind you why you got into the audiophile game in the first place." -- Russell Lichter, Soundstage.com

    "I recommend it highly to those who love the sound of the symphony orchestra in all its glory, and to those who love to show off what their audio systems can do when asked to reproduce first-class orchestral showpieces."" - Karl Nehring, THE SENSIBLE SOUND

    "Stunning audiophile sonics...the clarity, transparency, and firm definition of individual orchestral timbres are unequaled in my listening experience." -- Lawrence A. Johnson, FANFARE

    "These people really know how to record an orchestra." -- Richard Freed, WETA Radio
