Inspired by the signature sounds of the Beatles, the MIPA Award-Winning FAB FOUR includes authentic and rare acoustic and electric guitars, basses, drums, keyboards, stringed and other misc instruments, all played through and recorded on the same kind of vintage equipment used at Abbey Road Studios by Beatle’s engineer KEN SCOTT and EASTWEST multiple-award winning producer DOUG ROGERS.

EastWest The Dark Side, collection of virtual instruments by Doug Rogers and David Fridmann

EastWest The Dark Side

EastWest has released The Dark Side, an unconventional, hip and exciting collection of virtual instruments, some dark and eerie, and some which have been purposely—and skillfully!—mangled, distorted, or effected out of all recognition.

THE DARK SIDE provides inspiration for all composers and artists that are looking for unique instruments, designed to work for everything from alternative to symphonic rock, and of course, film, TV, and game music production.

THE DARK SIDE includes a vast, 40 Gigabyte collection, including dark and eerie instruments, and highly processed drums and percussion, basses, guitars, ethnic, keyboard, strings, and effected instruments, all organized into instrumental groups so you can create complete tracks.

The Dark Side includes EastWest’s PLAY 2 software, which can operate standalone or as a plug-in inside popular DAW hosts that support VST, Audio Units, and RTAS.

The Dark Side is available to purchase for PC and Mac for $395 USD MSRP.
