    After two years of recording, editing, and programming, EastWest/Quantum Leap proudly present the most detailed collection of the world's finest grand pianos ever recorded in one of the 'temples of sound', EASTWEST STUDIOS (more RIAA certified platinum and gold records awarded than any other recording studios).

    This virtual instrument includes four of the world's finest grand pianos: the Bechstein D-280. The PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the piano can blend with those collections.

    The Gold Edition provides only the player's perspective mics and 16-bit samples, for users with less powerful systems.

    Additional close mics version engineered by KEN SCOTT
    (Elton John, Supertramp, David Bowie, Beatles)
