Collaboration will bring sample libraries to Digidesign virtual instruments 20/01/07
Digidesign's new STRUCTURE sampler
Digidesign and EASTWEST have announced a collaboration to bring EASTWESTâ€™s high quality sample libraries to Digidesignâ€™s collection of award-winning virtual instruments. In the near future, Digidesign instruments, including the new high-end sampler Structure announced at the show, will feature premium sample content from EASTWEST.
Peter Gorges, director of Digidesignâ€™s Advanced Instrument Research (A.I.R.) group, told us, â€œOur new professional sampler, Structure, was developed specifically for use with Pro Tools workstations, offering exceptional performance and playability as well as the ability to build superior sample-based RTAS instruments, an in-house team dedicated to the development of high quality virtual instruments for Pro Tools. As a result, Structure provides the best platform yet for seamlessly integrating sound libraries into the Pro Tools environment.
By partnering with EASTWEST, we are able to complement our engine with the worldâ€™s most acclaimed libraries, perfectly optimized for Structure and upcoming integrated virtual instruments. Not only does EASTWEST offer some of the most recognized libraries, including EASTWEST/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra, Symphonic Choirs, Colossus, RA, and Stormdrum, but they also share an unswerving dedication to quality and innovation that is similar to our own. In so many ways this is the perfect partnership.â€�
Doug Rogers, EASTWEST founder and producer added, â€œWe fully respect the major contributions Digidesign has made to the industry and feel that a relationship of this type is of tremendous benefit to those looking for the best tools to compose with. Utilizing top-of-the-line studios, recording equipment, performers, and instruments, EASTWEST is continuously enhancing its product lines to meet the ever-changing needs of the industry. Working closely with Digidesign, we plan to make further advancements in the way producers create and compose music.â€�
As a first outcome of this collaboration, Digidesignâ€™s new sampler Structure will ship with exclusive EASTWEST factory content as well as a trial version of EASTWESTâ€™s Colossus â€œStructure Editionâ€� that can be upgraded to a full 160+ instrument powerhouse.
