    The East West Quantum Leap Pianos gold is a VST that has a library with four different grand pianos. All of the pianos where professionally recorded and you can tell they where when you use them. All of the piano samples are very high quality, when they recorded these samples they truly put some effort into it and recording with different pedal resonance. All of the piano samples come from the Bechstein D280, Bosendorfer 290, Steinway D, ad Yamaha C7 grand concert piano’s. All of these pianos where recorder with vintage microphones to give it more of an authentic feel.

    You can use East West Quantum Leap Pianos Gold on your Mac or your PC. For Mac it requires 4 GB Ram and OS of 10.5 or higher and on windows you need to have 4GB of RAM and Windows XP Service Pack 2, Vista or Windows 7. In order to use East West Quantum Leaop Pianos Gold iLok is required.

    The interface of the East West Quantum Leap Pianos Gold is very easy to use and understand, it is actually pretty simple. I have never experienced any issue with it either and I have run it up to about 5 different times simultaneously and no issues. It installs quick and easy. My favorite piano is the Steinway D because I love the sound of it, this VST has allowed me to take real pianos with me on my laptop instead of having to lug out a digital piano to go to a session at a friends or studio that doesn’t have a piano. I am very happy that I purchased this VST, for 300 dollars it could be one of the best investments that I have made into my software. That price may seem like a lot just for some piano samples but it is worth it because the quality of these samples are amazing.

Keep in mind that it produces little disappointed if we do not know how the settings of these microphones ... (you can also adjust the opening of the resonant case) ... Another amazing feature: push the mod wheel and you'll hear the samples "staccato" extremely realistic (to play the Chopin ?)... You have it in competition? no! listen to the notes in rapid repetition is superb.
    Value / price rather good. With the experience I remake this choice for the Steinway and Bosendorfer surely ... but not for the C7 shining too much for my taste, nor the Bechstein is too "smooth"
    But something is missing ... in this pack.
    You have only a super smooth and perfect together ... Piano competition offers intimate with the imperfections of games and other strings of parasitic resonances (sympathy) ... Ivory has tried but just the sound of keys / crack + pedals ... unnecessary, the sound of the strings everything!
    Listen to the "Hohner Baby Grand" in ImperfectSample, we are in the "beautiful" in the "woodwork" natural c super!
    http://www.imperfectsamples.com/website/samples/whitebabygrand/index.php
    Here is a super warm Piano complementary and melody for the "Forest Gump"
    So do not hesitate to have two! QLPIANO for the dynamics and perfection of the Steinway baby grand and the Jazz and the side "club" atmosphere.

    In addition, the handling is very simple, the software looks at the full possibilities of a joint rel piano.L game interface is also the enjoyable trs eye.
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    I had the chance to try and Akoustik Piano Pianoteq. The pianos on offer are the same, yet they do not have the same depth, precision and the Quantum Leap Pianos ism of East-West ... However, these programs are Allg more, this surely will delight those who prfrent a good product for a proving too hard!

    - How do you report qualitprix?
    It is true that it is more expensive than others on the marchmais must perspective, first of all, the sound quality is irrprochable (with, for example, notes and rptition 'Sampling of a real staccato, to name a few). Then, with hindsight, if we want to obtain beautiful piano sounds, all to bring a true, of course, it is not given. This product, I believe, is more than reasonable Contents qualitprix report.

    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    It is indniable I would do this to me more choices than convaincu.J 've even been jealous of this product! Many of my collgues ingnieurs musicians and sound have Akoustik Piano tend turn to QLP indniable ... It is my opinion that this jewel made in East-West, many people will agree. I recommend that you cost the DMOS site of East West ( http://www.soundsonline.com/product.php?productid=EW-171 ) , so that you can you account for the "monstrous" t work that has provided, and will agree to many.

    EastWest Quantum Leap PianosPublished on 08/12/11 at 19:02
    The piano sounds have lovely tone, but the samples aren't consistent across the keys. It is almost as if the soft pedal are being pushed for some notes. Very annoying to play live! I also found all kinds of glitches playing back midi tracks that had been recorded using other piano software. EastWest technical support was all but nonexistent. Even though I've been happy with other EastWest software in the past, I quickly realized that this program was pretty worthless. I was beginning to think that I'd never be happy with piano software, when I tried Ivory Italian Grand II. I absolutely love it! I would STRONGLY recommend Ivory over EastWest.

    Huge disappointment after being captivated by the demos, the technical description, the ambition of the project ...

    The samples sound like old pianos, without depth, without dynamic (or too: Yamaha), velocity and uneven harmonics, basses without depth ...

    Samples long to load, does not support the proximity of other player (crackles with Groove Agent, not allowing player to play both simultaneously).

    Surreal installation (10 hours) given the outcome (not so bad through headphones, but not acceptable for audio) ...

    I bought and tested five samples of piano ... And only one convinced me (you have to find ;-)

    - I use the program in stand alone for 3 weeks.

    - I have not tried other models, I relied on demos of East West as well as that of Purgatory Creek. My only real reference was The Grand 2 Steinberg no pianos East West fails to match despite their recent designs and debauchery of technical means used.

    - Nothing is really convincing except for the Steinway sound that seems a bit clearer than others. The Yamaha C7 is a true pan, Bosendorfer 290 sounds completely "confusion". A state also the total lack of recognition of Windows 7 at the time of installation.

    - In value for money, I feel completely rolled. East West had not accustomed to such poor quality products.

    - A remake? Never!

    I like a little less Bosendorfer but it is mostly a matter of taste.
    The Yamaha is a real cons notch below, especially compared to the incredible quality of the other 3.

    I see that the 2 previous reviews are very negative on the plug.
    It is a matter of taste, so a subjective matter altogether. In my case I'm really in love ...
    The grave is said to be back? no more than a pro record for me. Different microphones allow sound good shape.
    Above all, and it's still the most important game on the plug from a keyboard "correct" (heavy) is a pure delight showcasing the entire dynamic range.
