Quantum Leap Pianos from EastWest is a virtual instrument featuring four, classic grand pianos, all sampled in beautiful detail. The pianos were recorded in a suitable environment for grand painos, utilizing three separate microphone positions for each piano.
The instrument utilizes a dedicated playback engine, the PLAY Advanced Sample Engine, which provides an easy searchable browser and the ability for users to tailor the sounds. The interface also includes impulses from the same hall used to record the Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs, allowing the pianos to blend with those collections.
Quantum Leap Pianos functions as follows:
- Stand-alone under ASIO, Core Audio or DirectSound
- Plug-in for applications supporting RTAS, VST and Audio Units for Mac OS X
- Plug-in for applications supporting VST and RTAS for Windows XP
- 32-bit standalone and plug-in versions included
- 64-bit PC VST (host must support 64-bit VST plug-ins) and standalone versions included
Note! Requires Pace iLok key (not included) if one is not already on the system.
A 64-bit PC VST host system supporting 64-bit VST plug-ins with 4GB of free RAM is required to use all three microphone positions simultaneously. Light programs are provided for smaller systems.
