EastWest EW-217D overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, EastWest's Stormdrum 3 is a virtual instrument comprising a sampled library of rare drum sounds, all of them selected from the private collections of Mickey Hart and Remo Belli. The samples were played by Mickey Hart, Greg Ellis, and Chalo Eduardo at EASTWEST Studio 1 and produced by Nick Phoenix. The virtual instrument can operate in both standalone mode and as a plug-in within a host digital audio workstation.

The user interface for the virtual instrument features a browser for selecting samples, a filter with frequency and resonance controls, and an envelope with attack, hold, decay, sustain, and release controls. Also included within the user interface is a virtual keyboard, as well as controls for drum-tuning, pre-delay, delay time, delay feedback and delay level.

This download includes EastWest's PLAY 4 software, which enables 64-bit AAX compatibility in Pro Tools 11. It also features a time-stretch application, optimized for loops, with the option of syncing to your host sequencer. A new mixer page speeds up background loading and offers sub-channels to change virtual microphone positions. Additionally, the Play 4 software includes a stereo reverb and a Solid State Logic FX section with EQ, dynamics channel strip, transient shaper, and a stereo bus compressor.
