Eastwest has announced the return of its popular and updated ROCKTOBER 3 PACK HD special.

Customers can save 50% of the individual retail price of any eligible 3 EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP virtual instruments until October 31, 2011.

EastWest Rocktober 3 Pack HD

The standard edition of the ROCKTOBER 3 PACK HD features some of EASWEST’s latest products; Ministry of Rock 2, The Dark Side, and Spaces Convolution Reverb, all for $599/€459 shipped on a Terabyte hard drive. If customers already own one or more of the standard selection, they can change any or all of the 3 products and still get 50% off the retail price, and they can add as many products as they wish at the same discount. Changes to the standard product selection may increase the overall price. The ROCKTOBER 3 PACK HD includes FREE worldwide shipping and ships on Terapack 2, or customers can choose DVDs. All available selections are included on the 1TB hard drive, and those not purchased can be auditioned for 10 days each, the ultimate way to test drive the multiple award-winning EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP collection.

Ministry Of Rock 2 was created with one goal in mind: to create a virtual software instrument capable of producing sounds that could actually produce a hit record or film score without any live drum, bass, or guitar overdubs. The Dark Side (2011 MIPA winner) is an unconventional, hip and exciting collection of virtual instruments, some dark and eerie, and some that have been purposely, and skillfully, mangled, distorted, or effected out of all recognition. Spaces Convolution Reverb is a 24-bit, true stereo convolution reverb that sets a new standard by utilizing new impulse recording techniques developed over the past seven years.

Purchasers can add more items to the ROCKTOBER 3 PACK HD and get the same 50% discount. In addition to Ministry of Rock 2, The Dark Side, and Spaces, eligible products include Hollywood Strings Gold, Symphonic Orchestra, Symphonic Choirs, Symphonic Choirs Bundle, Pianos, Stormdrum 2, Stormdrum Pro Bundle, Voices of Passion, Ministry Of Rock 1, Fab Four, Goliath, Silk, Ra, and Gypsy. Any combination can be built at 50% off the retail price.

EastWest releases Quantum Leap Spaces convolution reverb

Quantum Leap Spaces

EastWest has announced the release of Quantum Leap Spaces, a 24-bit, true stereo convolution reverb for Windows and Mac.

An arsenal of the best gear that Neumann, Neve, Telefunken, TG, Manley, Sennheiser, Fairchild (to name a few) have produced over the past 60 years was used to create QUANTUM LEAP SPACES, along with the Sony DRE S777 sampling reverb and Meitner A-D converters. ATC monitors were positioned in the room/hall to emulate the real world sound projection properties of various instruments. So an impulse taken for a French horn was created by firing the sweep tones from the middle to left rear of the stage, backwards and slightly towards the floor. 1st violin section impulses were taken by firing a series of speakers at an angle towards the ceiling, just like a real section. A fifth speaker with the high end reduced was fired towards the floor to emulate the body of the violins. This same methodology was used to record reverbs for rock instruments in various LA studios. Because of this, the reverbs in QUANTUM LEAP SPACES have a fantastic balance of early reflections and room sound that really draws a dry instrument into the space, rather than the usual “sound plus reverb” result.

Quantum Leap Spaces features

  • Produced and Engineered By Nick Phoenix.
  • Highest resolution, most useful, reverbs available.
  • 24-bit True Stereo, with True Surround capability.
  • ATC, Neumann, Telefunken, Neve, Meitner Signal Path.
  • Film Score, Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classical, Esoteric and Dreamy Reverbs.
  • Low CPU usage, with cleanest signal path possible.

Quantum Leap Spaces is available to purchase as a download for $299 USD / 225 EUR (DVD expected shipping date is week of January 24th).
