EAST WEST QUANTUM LEAP PIANOS

This VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT combines intuitive handling with excellent sound quality, and functions as a plug-in instrument, without the need for a sampler.

This virtual instrument includes four of the world’s finest grand pianos: a Bechstein D-280, Steinway D, Bösendorfer 290, and Yamaha C7. The PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections.

“Quantum Leap Pianos is the most detailed and best sounding collection of virtual pianos I have ever used. The PLAY interface gives me a ton of control and flexibility, but it’s also really easy to use which allows me to experiment and get the sound I want quickly.”

— Steve Jablonsky

“The entire line of Quantum Leap instruments are an essential part of my composing rig. The sounds are impeccable and naturalistically captured while the ease of use and the power of the new PLAY engine makes the instruments top of their field.”

— Brian Tyler
