EASTWEST celebrates 25 years of innovation with a special 25th Anniversary Collection of virtual instruments. Founded in 1988 by Doug Rogers, EASTWEST paved the way for the sample-based, virtual instruments so many professional music, film, television and video game composers rely on today. With a plethora of awards and accolades and countless credits, EASTWEST continues to lead the virtual instrument world into the next generation.
The 25th anniversary is an opportunity to relive and enjoy the accomplishments of the past quarter-century. The Anniversary Collection gives musicians access to 30 previously released (and since discontinued) legacy products from the EASTWEST vault, all re-engineered and re-programmed to work in the PLAY software. 'This collection is very special. It gave us a chance to reflect on the many great products we have done in the pursuit of creating better music over the past 25 years. In re-engineering the collection, we realized just how much of the content is still relevant and usable for musicians today. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have creating them,' says Doug Rogers.
Many of these titles have greatly benefited from technical advances since they were first released. For example, the construction kits (individual loop components) and multi-channel drum kits are now all on different channels in the PLAY mixer, allowing the user to mix and customize everything. These are then tempo controlled by your sequencer. The PLAY software also includes many sound shaping tools previously unavailable in the initial releases. The following titles are available:
These collections have stood the test of time, meticulously recorded in their day. They still stand out as some of the finest sampling products ever produced, crafted by the EASTWEST production team and the top artists and producers they worked with.
