The Sounds of the Beatles

Summary

FAB FOUR is a virtual (software) instrument that includes 45 instruments inspired by the sounds of the Beatles. "The quality is undeniable, I can't imagine what East West must have gone through to track down these sounds (and get Beatles engineer Ken Scott on board)." - EQ

M.I.P.A Winner ; judged most innovative instrument by 100 music magazines

Check out the AUDIO DEMOS in the player at the top right. For those new to this technology we used some of the 45 instruments in the FAB FOUR collection to create these demos. To listen to .wav versions select the demo and click on the 'wav' link at the top of the playlist, and download the .wav file. Everything you hear (except the foot taps at the end of "Something In the Sky") is in the product (even the screaming girls!). New video tutorials have been posted below, so if you want to get more familiar with the technology behind this award-winning collection, check these out.
