Multiple articulations and five mixable mic positions
Recorded in EastWest’s famous Studio 1 (the birthplace of major Hollywood soundtracks and TV themes) by Grammy and Academy Award-winning scoring engineer Shawn Murphy, the 24-bit samples of EastWest Hollywood Percussion Diamond Edition are pristine and gloriously detailed, and the collection gives you unprecedented control over the expressiveness and sound of the instruments with up to five mixable mic positions and multiple articulations. Articulations include left-handed and right-handed hits using an array of mallets, and strikes on different parts of the instrument, such as edge shots, rim shots, and center shots. You’ll also find a variety of performance techniques, such as flams and rolls.
Includes the custom PLAY interface
The EastWest Hollywood Percussion includes the custom PLAY advanced sample engine, designed to give you deep access to the sounds within. This 64-bit interface (with 32-bit support) lets you load multiple instruments, so you can easily craft custom split and layered setups that make it effortless to perform with multiple instruments and entire instrument sections. It also allows you to go really deep with your sounds, such as adjusting envelopes and the addition of various sample reproduction tools for tweaking your instruments to perfection.
