EastWest EW-185D overview

  • 1Description

Quantum Leap Silk from Quantum Leap (distributed by EastWest) is a virtual instrument that features authentic sounds from China, Persia and India. Performed by master musicians, all of the recordings were made with vintage Neumann microphones, Neve consoles, and Meitner converters.

The multi-sampled instruments include special articulations, interval sampling (where appropriate), round robins (alternate samples), legato scripting, and phrases, making it possible to create life-like performances. Silk includes the PLAY 32-/64-bit interface with state of the art convolution reverb, scripting, and a micro-tuning system.
