Available for download, the EastWest Quantum Leap Pianos Steinway D Platinum is a virtual piano that offers a balanced tone and a wide dynamic range from pianissimo to fortissimo. This 9', 88-key American grand piano can work for a wide variety of productions.

This 59GB library has been painstakingly captured with multiple mic positions and with sampling techniques that secure an authentic sound. For instance, piano-repetition samples have been recorded in real time from 180 BPM performances, so when you go for a repetition, you'll hear a recording of the real thing—not a retriggered, alternate sample. Sympathetic pedal resonances have also been recorded for every note at many different velocities.

Samples are triggered and played through the accompanying PLAY software, a 64-bit audio engine that powers the EastWest Quantum library. This software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms, and operates in AU, AAX, and VST formats.
