News EastWest Quantum Leap SD2 Pro

EastWest has announced an upgrade for the Quantum Leap SD2 virtual instrument software with SD2 Pro Upgrade, which made its European debut at Musikmesse 2009.


The upgrade features 2.5 gigs of percussive sounds with a variety of strike and brush solos and ensemble recordings.

EastWest had this to say:

“The sound of three giant Chinese Lion Drums, played by six percussionists in sync, will certainly make the emperors of old sit up and pay attention move over taiko! The Middle Earth Ensemble features eight percussionists playing various bass and battle drums combined with floor and small toms to make the most reluctant elf and orc rush to battle. Two large Persian Battle Drums played in sync bridge the gap between Middle East and West, while Trailer Toms feature eight sets of huge tom ensembles that inspire heart-pounding rhythms.”

New solo instruments include the mridangam, a two-headed Indian drum capable of dozens of tones like tablas, but with a different harmonic structure, played by a lifetime mridangam master. 10 new sampled drums played with a variety of brushed techniques are said to enhance this sonic pallet. A rare Indian stringed percussion instrument, the Khamak, offers a “truly wild” sound, while the Daf, a Persian hand drum, offers “beautiful high-pitched” drum sounds. Also included are Chinese toms in sets of four, various new Chinese gongs and cymbals played with many techniques, and Chinese blocks.

SD2 is said to deliver MIDI performances created with Roland V-Drums and Zendrum percussion controllers. MIDI performances are pre-mixed, panned and produced for quick use.

Pricing
The SD2 Pro Upgrade retails for 149.00.
