Expands Colossus Collection and Adds Power of PLAY
(Anaheim, California--January 17, 2008) Continuously developing products which give its users access to the most powerful and accurately recorded sounds available, EASTWEST has expanded upon its popular Quantum Leap Colossus collection by introducing Quantum Leap Goliath.
Ideal for composers and songwriters, Quantum Leap Goliath is a complete collection of quality instruments and sounds from the multi-award winning EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP production team, spanning various genres and musical styles all with the company’s new PLAY sample engine. Quantum Leap Goliath will make its debut at NAMM 2008, January 17-20 (Booth# 6630, Hall A).
Quantum Leap Goliath encompasses the entire Colossus collection plus 8 Gigabytes of new content. With Goliath, users will now have more than 180 high-quality instruments and more than 600 patches including drums and percussion, guitars, basses, acoustic and electric pianos, keyboards and mallets, pop brass, orchestral instruments, choirs and vocals, ethnic instruments, new age ensembles, morphing atmospheres, synth basses, synth leads, and synth pads—all at their disposal. As part of the additional content, Goliath features the full collections of sounds from the EW/PMI Bösendorfer 290 Piano collection.
“Goliath was created to provide users with a comprehensive composing toolkit along with the added power and speed of the PLAY sample engine,” says Quantum Leap Producer Nick Phoenix. “Colossus’ versatility and ease of use has made it an industry favorite and winner of “Virtual Instrument of the Year.” Goliath expands upon Colossus’ reputation while incorporating the future of computer music creation by providing access to 64-bit support, enabling users to utilize all of the system RAM they have installed, and to load many more instruments than was previously possible.”
Goliath comes equipped with EASTWEST’s PLAY sample engine as a standard feature.
In addition to purchasing the entire Goliath collection, current Colossus owners have the option to purchase an upgrade (customers will need to submit Colossus serial number at the time of purchase in order to receive the upgrade). This gives current users the access to the new content of Goliath along with the added power of PLAY at a discounted rate.
