The Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra from EastWest is a sampled orchestral collection originally captured in a "state of the art" concert hall. Recorded by eleven-time Grammy nominated classical recording engineer Prof. Keith O. Johnson, the virtual instrument features strings, brass, woodwinds and percussion.

To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three microphone positions - close, stage (conductor's position) and hall. By selecting the different positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires, eliminating the need for artificial reverb.

Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra 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.

          The software sounds good for the price but it's a pain to install and they don't tell you that after you finally get it installed that you can't use until you buy a dongle for another [$] So I waited a week to get the software and had to wait another 4 days to get the iLok dongle. I'm glad that I have the software and it works great, and I understand they are trying to stop piracy but geeezzz...

            This product is excellent as the other reviews have shown. However, good luck running it as a VST with only a 32-bit DAW. You must have a 64-bit DAW to use this as a functioning VST.

              Installation was easy. Sounds are the best for its price. I've used miroslav philharmonik before my friend showed me this, he has the plus version. I went home and did some research and was sold on how cheap but good this version sounded. The only thing I wish this product could have offer was more sounds.
