EASTWEST MAKES A PLAY 4 SSL

By

August 20, 2013

EastWest Play 4EastWest develops high-end specialist virtual instruments that cover just about every genre and they’re not for the faint-hearted. Its Hollywood Strings Diamond Edition requires a whopping 310GB of HD space for the samples, if that gives you any indication. Instruments can be played either standalone or can be hosted inside a DAW and each instance of an EastWest instrument requires EW’s own Play 4 software shell to work (think Kontakt Player here). Play 4 is provided free. Now EastWest has teamed up with Solid State Logic to present the SSL/EW FX Suite, a collection of professional audio processing tools, included inside Play 4. The foundations of the SSL collection are adaptations of two SSL console classics. You get an EQ & Dynamics Channel plug-in, a Stereo Compressor gives users the classic SSL stereo compressor, and a Transient Shaper plug-in. The EastWest Reverb, an expansion of the Reverb in the Player view, is also included. It adds some features that are not part of the Player Reverb. Sharp-eyed observers may see the SSL/EW FX Suite is identical to the SSL Duende Native Plug-in suite – except it’s limited only to use within the PLAY 4 software. If you already own an EastWest instrument and thus your version of Play 4 is lacking the FX suite, the upgrade will cost $99 – or you can buy another instrument. Download details and a comprehensive explanation of the SSL/EW FX Suite is at www.soundsonline.com
