EastWest has released a significant upgrade of its PLAY software that includes the long awaited Symphonic Choirs "WordBuilder Inside PLAY" upgrade.
EastWest/Quantum Leap's Symphonic Choirs enables words to be entered into WordBuilder for the choirs to sing, and PLAY 2.1.1 makes Symphonic Choirs a lot easier to use, with WordBuilder now integrated directly into the PLAY software.
The PLAY 2.1.1 upgrade is free for current PLAY users. For customers using the previous NI version of Symphonic Choirs, the upgrade to the PLAY version with WordBuilder inside is $99 / €75. Upgrade downloads can be made at soundsonline.com/updates.
The PLAY 2.1.1 update should be installed by all PLAY users, regardless of which PLAY product(s) they have, as there are other performance and maintenance updates included.

- Addition of Integrated Wordbuilder into PLAY for Symphonic Choirs users.
