EastWest has announced another "Buy One Get One Free Promotion" for its PLAY-powered products. Users visiting the EastWest U.S. or worldwide websites from now until June 30th, 2009, will be able to purchase one PLAY product and receive a collection of equal to or lesser value for free. The offer is also available at participating domestic and international retailers using a mail-in rebate.
PLAY-powered collections eligible for the promotion include:
Quantum Leap Silk: A collection of historic and unique string and woodwind instruments from China, Persia and India. The collection contains extensive articulations, interval sampling (where appropriate), round robin (alternate samples) and phrases to give the feeling of smooth effortless performance - like silk.
EastWest/Quantum Leap Symphonic Choirs PLAY Edition: The virtual instrument that offers complete control over a choir's words and sound; includes three simultaneous stereo mic setups (close, stage and hall).
EastWest/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra PLAY Edition (Platinum Plus, Platinum, Gold and Silver Editions): PLAY's 64-bit (with 32-bit compatibility) sampling engine, offers the opportunity to load more of these sounds than ever before - all in an easy-to-use interface.
Quantum Leap Stormdrum 2: This sequel to Stormdrum is packed with over 12 GBs of multi-sampled percussion, drawing from the secret collections of three world-class percussionists. For the maximum customization without sound degradation, SD2 - The Next Generation delivers MIDI performances created with Roland V-Drums and Zendrum percussion controllers.
EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos Full Edition: A detailed collection of the world's finest grand pianos. These include a $225,000 Bechstein D-280 Concert Grand, the same kind of piano engineer/producer Ken Scott used to record Elton John, David Bowie, and Supertramp. EastWest invited Scott to engineer the Bechstein's close-miced recordings to provide users with a cutting, dynamic pop/rock piano sound. The collection features three micing positions to offer the best in realism and expression.
EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos Gold PLAY Edition: Pianos Gold Edition offers all the great pianos featured in the full version of Pianos but offers only one mic position. This allows the collection to run faster on slower computers than the full three mic version.
Quantum Leap Ra PLAY Edition: One of the largest and most detailed collections of ethnic instruments from six areas of the world: Africa, Americas and Australia; Europe, Far East, Middle East and the Turkish Empire; and India. Every instrument and ensemble was sampled extensively so that the character of each instrument is preserved.

As part of the additional content, Goliath features the full collections of sounds from the EW/PMI Bösendorfer 290 Piano collection.
