EastWest Stormdrum 2 overview

  • 1Description

Quantum Leap Stormdrum 2 from EastWest is a virtual instrument, featuring over 12GB of various acoustic percussion instruments, ranging from ethnic drums to found-sound percussion. Also included are over one-hundred film score-oriented MIDI performances, which allow for changing tempo, tuning individual instruments, altering the performances, all without audio degradation. Each one includes dozens of variations, intros and endings.

This collection is a follow up to the hugely successful Stormdrum, featuring over twice the content and with a built-in dedicated playback engine, the PLAY Advanced Sample Engine, which provides an easily searchable browser and the ability for users to customize the sounds. All the sounds were recorded using vintage Neumann microphones in EastWest's Studio 1.

The MIDI performances are in type 0 MIDI file format, meaning that the sixteen tracks of MIDI data are compressed into a single MIDI file data stream. Data can be played back as is, or expanded to sixteen tracks using the expand/unpack function in a sequencer. Once a template is set up, access is available to every parameter of the sequence. Tempo, muting instruments, adding instruments and parts, changing the tone using velocity and controllers, quantizing etc., are all possible.

Note: This product is an educational discounted version available to qualified students, faculty/staff, and accredited academic institutions only. Proof of current educational status is required.
