HOLLYWOOD — EASTWEST, the industry leader in soundware development and distribution, has posted free updates for its PLAY audio engine software, and VOICES OF PASSION and MINISTRY OF ROCK virtual instruments on the company‘s website (http://www.soundsonline.com/updates.php). The updates (PLAY v1.0.021 and INSTRUMENTS v1.02) are available for both Mac and Windows platforms in both standalone and plug-in versions.
Introduced earlier this year, EASTWEST‘s PLAY advanced sample engine is the first to offer both 64-bit and 32-bit support for multi-format virtual instruments. PLAY provides users with added power, in an easy-to-use interface, allowing them to load many more instruments and voices, limited only by the computer‘s RAM. With this update, all installed versions of the PLAY virtual instruments (Fab Four, Quantum Leap Voices of Passion, Quantum Leap Gypsy, and Quantum Leap Ministry of Rock) will be automatically upgraded to the latest version of the sample engine.
EASTWEST will also release two new PLAY releases in the next month, SD2 (the sequel to STORMDRUM) with all new material and double the content of the original, and QUANTUM LEAP PIANOS, the most detailed sampled piano library ever.
Also due for release this year is the PLAY version of it‘s critically acclaimed EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA and QUANTUM LEAP GOLIATH, the expanded version of COLOSSUS.
