Recorded by 11-time Grammy nominated classical recording engineer Prof. Keith O. Johnson, the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA is the most awarded orchestral collection ever, including winning Sound On Sound's Reader's Choice Award an unprecedented 3-times, and the first orchestral collection to be recorded in a "state of the art" concert hall where orchestras mainly perform.
To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three mic positions, close, stage (conductor‘s position) and hall. By selecting different mic positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires. This eliminates the need for artificial reverb.
The EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA eclipses all others with the highest level of fidelity and realism. Get that big "Hollywood Sound" film/tv/games directors and producers seek "out of the box", no other orchestral collection comes close or is as easy to use!
“I compose music for feature films. I come from a classical background and my music is primarily for the orchestra with additional electronic elements when appropriate. When I compose, I have a full orchestra loaded into samplers. The cost of it really isn't an issue for me, because when I need to do the orchestral mock-ups I need to have the best sounding, most expressive orchestral instruments I can find. The big issue I have had with orchestral sample libraries in the past has been the way they were recorded. Most of them were close mic'ed and not in a proper environment for an orchestra. No matter how much reverb you put on those recordings, they never sound good. The EWQLSO recordings are excellent and sound the way a real orchestra sounds in a hall or sound stage. The sounds are inspiring to play because they sound so good. Simply put: EWQLSO is now the best sounding orchestral library on the market!”

“There are a lot of orchestral libraries on the market, but EWQLSO is the only one I really trust sonically for finished products. When I heard a score I had done using EWQLSO played in a movie theater, I couldn't believe how great it sounded over those massive speakers!”
“It's difficult to describe my enthusiasm about Gold in one sentence. The FX patches, the qlegato and inclusion of all the platinum articulations has made this the number one library for me. Don't know what else to say; I'm your biggest fan. Just keep doing what you are doing.”
“As a composer working in the computer games industry, Im often working to tight deadlines and turnaround times. I couldnt meet my schedule without a library like EWQLSO. It sounds first class, right out of the box, and I find I dont need to do any panning or EQing - trying to make instruments sit in the mix.”
“The Platinum library has improved the sound of my productions 1000%. The emotional quality of the samples make my compositions sing and really show how much sweat and love were put into the creation of the library.”
“As choir director, I need an orchestral sample set that exudes realism and impact, since our broadcasts cover the globe by radio and internet...I'm pleased to report that Pro XP fits the bill quite exquisitely!”
“EWQLSO, not only your orchestra, it is also your personal sound engineer!”
“While it's not exactly miraculous these days to have access to good orchestral samples, it seems nothing short of miraculous to me to have this level of quality and realism available at my fingertips. There is simply no other library - at any price - that compares with the overall sound, usability and capability of EWQLSO. And of course the "Pro" expansions take the product so far into the next realm that the competition might as well pack up and go home!”
NOTE: In order to mix multiple microphone positions in Platinum and Platinum Plus, we suggest using a "recommended" or better system.
