EastWest Releases Quantum Leap Gypsy
EastWest has announced that Quantum Leap Gypsy, a new virtual instrument, primarily aimed at soundtrack composers is now shipping. The new release features a collection of extremely detailed Gypsy style virtual instruments capable of playing completely realistic performances.
Its nylon string guitar, violin and trombone can play in both gypsy and classical styles. In the classical realm, these three instruments are unparalleled in the sampling world in terms of playability, diversity and sound quality.
All of the guitars were sampled with up and down strokes, many velocities and picking styles, various picking angles, release trails, chords and effects. They were played by top Los Angeles session guitarist, David Kole.
The violin and trombone feature many articulations, repetitions and even true legato intervals. The trombone in Quantum Leap Gypsy was recorded in EASTWEST Studio 1 (formerly United-Western Studios) in Hollywood California, referred to by many engineers as â€œthe best brass room on the planet.â€
The accordions feature multiple setups, all with air flow in and out samples as well as expressive samples, chords and left-hand bass. True to its name, Gypsy also features a gypsy percussion program and extensive flamenco dancersâ€™ foot stomps, as well as traditional castanets.
