Xsample Chamber Ensemble

EastWest has unveiled Xsample Chamber Ensemble, a library of virtual solo instruments for chamber music and chamber orchestra. Thousands of different combinations can be created, representing a wide variety of styles, according to EastWest. The instruments can be used live or sequenced for recordings. Violins, piccolo, flute, clarinet, concert harp, Steinway piano, celesta, xylophone, glockenspiel, cymbals, watergong, diatonic steeldrum, friction drums and Jew's harps are just a few of the many available options.

Xsample also includes Kontakt2, a player engine that enhances integration with composition programs including Finale and Sibelius. All articulations are laid out for each instrument, allowing keyswitches in Kontakt2 script or global keyswitches to build a composition. Xsample Chamber Ensemble works on Mac OS X 10.4+ or Windows XP/Vista and is available from EastWest for $800.
