EastWest has announced the release of PLAY 5, an updated version that offers a major performance upgrade to the advanced sample engine that powers virtual instruments from EastWest and Quantum Leap.
The new PLAY 5 is bundled with an impressive amount of high-end bonus production tools.
“This is a massive upgrade to the PLAY engine,” says Doug Rogers, founder and producer of EastWest. “Power users in particular will appreciate the special optimization settings for SSDs and PCIe-based flash storage. We’re really proud of the improvements we were able to make.”
PLAY 5 also includes an impressive array of professional audio processing tools: The SSL/EW FX Global Suite, a $99 value, is now included for free to all PLAY 5 users. This collection of authentic SSL tools includes a filter, EQ, compressor, gate/expander, transient shaper and stereo bus compressor. EastWest has also included 726 new reverb impulses for the EastWest Convolution Reverb.
Additionally, an Amp Simulator and the Ohmicide multi-band distortion ($99 value) are included free for the EastWest Goliath collection which contains hundreds of instruments of all types from the EastWest product range, and many more unique to Goliath. For film/TV/games composers or musicians looking for a more edgy sound, this powerful combination opens up a new world of possibilities using real instruments as the source instead of oscillators. For the next week, EastWest is going to be offering Goliath for 50% off for anyone that doesn’t have this incredible collection.
With the release of PLAY 5, EastWest is also offering PayPal support for all ComposerCloud subscriptions. Subscribers no longer need a credit card to access the entire EW collection of over 10,000 award-winning virtual instruments.
The PLAY 5 and Goliath instrument update are now available from the EastWest Support Center.
