News

EWQL "Hollywood" Series

We are very happy to finally be able to say on-the-record that sound sets for EastWest/Quantum Leap's Hollywood Strings and Hollywood Brass are in development and expected to be released in Q4 2011. System requirements and pricing information are TBD.

EWQLSO [Kontakt] Sound Sets

Due to an overwhelming response, having clearly mistaken the number of remaining users, the EWQLSO [Kontakt] sound sets will be re-released. These sound sets will be in entirely new form based on the success of the PLAY edition sound sets. The re-release is not without concern, however, and in order to limit availability as much as possible to legitimate users it will require some sort of application, including verification of authorization, before orders will be accepted. Details of what this process will look like are not entirely known at this point, but we will try to make it as painless as possible. Release is expected in late 2011 - early 2012.

Sonivox Symphonic Collection

Sound sets for the Sonivox Symphonic Collection libraries are progressing fast and are currently being tested. The sound sets for the five libraries that comprise this collection (Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion, Strings, Harp) will be available individually and in a reduced-price bundle for users of all five titles; the bundle will also include combined sound sets and House Styles for convenience as well as the individual library files to make mixing libraries an easier task. Release is expected in Q4 2011.

Miscellaneous Other

Work continues on a significant update for the Vir2 VI.ONE sound set and several other sound sets are in varying stages of development. Efforts through the end of the 2011 into 2012 will be focused on adding new developers to the sound set list and expanding the range of resources available from the SSP. It's a bit too early for specifics but we're confident the results will have something to offer users of all levels. As always, if you have anything specific you would like to see, libraries that need integrated, or have any other questions or suggestions please don't hesitate to let us know!
