EastWest Quantum Leap Goliath
This is a pretty high-quality sample bank. I think that it's a pretty easy thing to set up with Logic or another DAW. The setup didn't take me very long, and once I got started, the interface in Logic made it all pretty easy to control. It also, beyond being a sample bank, has an actual sampler, called Play.


The sounds in this sampler are pretty varied, and actually do a great job of covering all the basics. There's a ton of different sounds for piano, synthesizers, orchestral sounds, percussion, and drum kit. The only concern I have with these sounds is that once you pick them, you cannot manipulate too far within the interface of Goliath itself. You'd have to rely on some outboard gear or EQing to really mess with them. This is sort of limiting, as there are other sample banks that allow you to really manipulate the sounds within the banks themselves.
My style of music doesn't really call for sample banks as much, since I really would almost always prefer to use live instruments. However, this is rarely possible at home, so I would have to say that this is pretty satisfying as far as sample banks go. The actual quality of the given samples is pretty robust and full for the most part, and none of them sound very artificial, which is what I am always worried about.


The main problem I had with this was that I had to really be careful about not pushing my computer too hard. This is unfortunate, especially since I have about 4 GB of RAM on my hard drive. Logic would be the only program I could run and get the performance I wanted out of it. I'm not too familiar at this point with a whole lot of other sample libraries, only a few far cheaper banks that were far inferior. They ran more smoothly on my computer, but they didn't sound nearly as good. The only critique sound-wise was again, the lack of editing possible within the program itself, it gets tricky to get really creative with these sounds when you have to send signals back to outboard gear or mix them very strangely. I would say to anyone, check it out before you buy it. Its worth checking out to say the least.

EastWest Quantum Leap Goliath
These are formats EWS, I do not know if it's a format .... Owner '
they are instruments of trs good quality sample with a system that allows joint DIFFERENT sounds by combining several buttons.


excellent quality instruments, a password trs well in many cases. 40 g of bran, 160 instruments, dot a Bosendorfer piano trs good. He yaa a large variety of sounds, prs little to cover all styles.
In short it allows you to sound really pro.


for 1 year
I bought AR and Fab Four before, Fab Four is a bit more dcevant.
what is pnible, the Systm iLock, which involves a USB port at all times.
What I like: the large variety of sounds, excellent workmanship.
Or the price I pay a good deal is a trs. It is better to wait Eastwest Discounts, rebates are INTERESTED.
If I had to buy it back, it is clearly yes ... Forgiveness: YES!

pmdamb's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Equivalent to a generic synth quality"

EastWest Quantum Leap Goliath
Works exclusively with EastWest Play and you have the key iLock. These are samples of the format ewi. Function with Cubase SE3, Vista, Windows7 32-bit or 64 but it is better to have visa or W7 64-bit to get the most out of available RAM, otherwise it crashes or it has a lot of clicks. I will also switch to seven 64-bit


The instruments are very realistic. Goliath offers a range of sounds that come from other products and Easwest can have a good range of what is found in Eastwest. Of course these are only a few samples but enough to create good songs. There are choirs Symphonic Choirs, the voice of voice of passion, Orchestra, Rock minitry guitars, drum sounds Storm. There is also the complete GM bank


IT CAN BE USED I recently and especially the sounds that I did not also, especially for the pad, and sounds mbiance.

EastWest Quantum Leap Goliath
Bank of 40GB of samples in. EWI
180 instruments and over 600 patches
Includes full version of the PMI Bosendorfer 290 of the same publisher
Works with the EastWest Play reader (included) in 32 or 64 Bit

As it is Collosus résumé with some more GB of samples and the Bosendorfer and this one rates findable infrieur Collosus alone.

Edit: So much for those who asked me some more information j'dite conclusion.


For me, this software is made to sound. The recording is of good quality but trs trs typical "Hollywood". Ct of the orchestra for example, exclude some musical phrases and the Stravinsky works plutt get closer to sound grandiose, hroique. So for someone looking for really "Beautiful" sound, DPIT versatility is excellent.
Furthermore, some instruments sound pretty bad but only trs marry well with other sounds of Goliath (in the case of the violins, for example, which will not replace those of a bank orchestral hardcore).

The guitars sound wonderful, all j'apprcie particulirement "double acoustic guitar" that gives an impression of space standard, the bass is trs crdibles, drums and percussion of the same.

For "Pop Brass" on the other hand is a bit lightweight. a dpanner can but do not mix too they appear.
Similarly for choirs which for me are the basis for their advertising software specially although some dfendent lot (Solo Boy for example).

Keyboards are also simpa (the Bosendorfer replacing my The Grand II without problem).
Possdant other VST specially I did not too look at the Synth but the possibility of morphing are really INTERESTED.

Sets New Age section and are also Stormdrone trs typ music "Holywodienne" but what a joy.


I use it for 2 months so my opinion is not and I would put DEFINITIONS can be updated.
What I like most is the diversity little of everything and really do have a compelling but rsultat typ "film music"
Play against the drive by some ncessite amliorations because it is still a bit unstable.

I tried a lot of VST and out of all sound bank. Goliath is at the top of my list in its class. It is a powerful tool box can replace other soft aisment specially in a field. For example I prfr Garritan Orchestra Personnal or Virtual Guitarist (first name) and for low I feel even more compelled to buy Trilogy.

The ratio quality price is really honest. 389 for 40 GB of various audio and trs good quality is not bad even if it would always be less CHRE
I do not regret my purchase but I look forward to updates from Play.

I do it again because this choice when I bought it exactly is that I tried, but with a bigger budget lev I took the Complete Collection, I'll do something soon.

: EDIT: APRS a little over a year of use trs Goliath is always a useful but mainly in the background.
Much remains BMOL Play every Upd resynchronister the lycence Ilok requires a full moon one day odd dune bisexctile anne ... Also I never could use Pro Tools and Cubase is not emptied every day. I'm not ready to go on my other EastWest play, the player of NI is much more stable and does not play in most of the decision-heads.
Otherwise I always find the samples of good quality but with the Complete Composers Collection Dornava Goliath I use primarily for keyboards, pop brass (by far drowned in the mix) and percussion.
The rest is a good Swiss Army knife sound used sparingly (it is?) But will color all types of songs. I ride my same note 7 becaufe that price has enriched Whereas my palette of sounds.
