The Definitive 5 CD-ROM Collection of Multi Sampled Brass Instruments & Sections.
April 12, 2000 - East West, the world's leading provider of professional Soundware, today released Quantum Leap Brass, a multi CD-ROM professional sample library for Akai S1000 (and compatible), Akai S5000/S6000, and GigaSampler Samplers.
Quantum Leap Brass is the definitive 5 CD-ROM Collection (6 CD-ROM for Akai S1000) of multi sampled Brass Instruments & Sections, featuring Solo Trumpet, Solo trombone, Bass Trombone, Piccolo Trumpet, Tuba, Baritone, Sax, Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Soprano Sax, 4 French Horns, 3 Trumpets, and 3 Trombones, meticulously recorded and programmed by Nick Phoenix, who produced the critically acclaimed sample library Quantum Leap Guitar & Bass.
Phoenix and his team spent nearly a year creating this long sort after Brass collection which is the ultimate solution for ORCHESTRAL, POP, JAZZ, BIG BAND, ROCK, MARIACHI, LATIN, R&B, HIP HOP productions. Quantum Leap Brass is an uncompromising, purist collection for sampling connoisseurs with an emphasis on expression and dynamics.
The Brass Instruments were chromatically recorded through RCA 44 ribbon and Neumann M 49 condenser microphones, Neve and Manley preamps, and Apogee Rossetta 24 bit converters, in Los Angeles' best recording studios. What separates Quantum Leap Brass from other Brass sample libraries is the quality of the attacks and the absence of loops (some of the most important sustains in the library are included looped for those users with less memory).
"For the last decade sampling musicians have been patiently awaiting the arrival of a comprehensive Brass sample library that enables them to produce realistic Brass recordings, and finally we have achieved it", says East West president and CEO, Doug Rogers. "The quality and the dynamics of these recordings has to be heard to be believed", says Rogers.
The recommended US list price for the 5 or 6 CD-ROM library is $695.
An AUDIO DEMO of Quantum Leap Brass is currently online. The Audio Demo is MP3 quality (RealPlayer G2) when played with fast connections (DSL, T1, T3, Cable Modem). The quality of the demo will deteriorate with slower connections. An AUDIO DEMO is also available on CD from East West.
