This newly recorded expansion of the acclaimed Hollywood Orchestra will boast over 230 Gigabytes of pristine new recordings and powerful new features sound engineered by Shawn Murphy (2019 GRAMMY winner "Best Engineered Album, Classical", ACADEMY AWARD, C.A.S. (Cinema Audio Society), BAFTA, and EMMY award-winning sound engineer). Producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix have also reworked the original content of Hollywood Orchestra (which is required along with the expansion) so the whole collection has a cohesive sound and an easier workflow. Along with Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition EastWest will release its companion product Hollywood Orchestrator, which will assist in creating award-winning compositions within seconds, and much more.
"Hollywood Orchestra is extremely popular with over a half a million users", said producer Doug Rogers; "Since the release of Hollywood Orchestra, which was created over a 5 year period, we have received a wish list from users and feel we have included most of these requests, and many of our own, in the Opus Edition. The Orchestrator uses multi-samples (not loops) to automate compositions, saving the composer a lot of time, it's very exciting."
There will be an upgrade path for existing users of Hollywood Orchestra. The Opus Edition and Orchestrator will be included in EastWest's multiple award-winning subscription service ComposerCloud, and both will be available for purchase.
EastWest will release more details, news and exclusive sneak peaks over the coming months.
