Ministry of Rock 2 from EastWest is a virtual instrument designed with the idea of delivering sounds that can produce a hit record or film score, without the need for any live drum, bass, or guitar overdubs. The articulations and programming were all reverse engineered from actual performances and the 57GB collection features LIVE technology that enables multi-sampled drums to sound like a live performance.

Recorded in EASTWEST Studio 1, the drums consist of three large rock kits from DW, Gretsch and Ludwig, along with six additional snares. Repetition samples were recorded for everything, as well as extreme dynamics and three microphone positions, enabling the user to dial in the desired sound for a realistic performance. Any drum sound from any kit can be selected to create a custom kit.

The guitar recordings used a Fender Jaguar, Fender Telecaster Thinline, Carvin 7 String, Baritone, Gibson Les Paul and Schecter 7 String. Amplifiers include Fender, Divided By Thirteen, Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Bogner and Vox. Samples feature round robin, hammer on and pull off legato, sliding legato and dozens of other techniques. Dual channel recordings let you pick a real amplifier sound or use the direct signal with popular plug-ins.

Performances feature some of the industry's top players. Classic equipment from world renowned manufacturers was used for the signal chain, including Neumann, Neve, Telefunken, AKG, Manley, Fairchild, Royer, Chandler and Meitner products. Also included are the re-mastered content from Hardcore Bass and Hardcore Bass XP, plus an all-new 5 string Musicman Stingray bass with 7,000 samples and true legato. Fender, Hofner, Gibson, Silvertone, Rickenbacker, Musicman and Lakland basses were recorded through large bass rigs.

Note! Requires Pace iLok key (not supplied) if one is not already on the system.
