EWQLSO [Kontakt] Sound Set Discontinuation

Posted: June 2, 2011

Important Announcement

After much consideration, it's been decided that the EWQLSO [Kontakt] Sibelius Sound Sets will be discontinued on July 1, 2011. Reasons for the discontinuation are many, however the most pertinent are:

  • Products (libraries) are no longer available
  • Magnet for users of pirated/cracked software
  • Number of legitimate users has fallen greatly due to availability of the PLAY edition
  • Protection against fraudulent sales due to traffic sourced from software piracy sites

This does not necessarily signal the end of EWQLSO [Kontakt] sound sets entirely, it remains possible that new/updated sound sets will be available at some point in the future. The exact method of distribution, should new sound sets be released, is not yet decided. An application process is being considered, and, regardless of method, potential users will be required to submit (requested) information proving they are using a legitimate copy of the library.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.

All current users of the EWQLSO [Kontakt] Sound Sets are encouraged to download a copy of the sound set for their archives from the EastWest/Quantum Leap page. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
