EastWest launches Silk

EastWest/Quantum Leap has launched Silk, a virtual software instrument that features a collection of historic string and woodwind instruments from China, Persia and India. The instruments are mutli-sampled, with interval sampling and alternate sampling, phrases and articulations available. Instruments from China include the erhu, zhonghu, pipa and others, with Persian instruments including a 30 piece string collection, an electric cello and a kemenche, among others. Indian instruments in the package are the dilruba, sarod, tanpura and bansuri.

Silk plays on EastWest's Play 64-bit Advanced Sample Engine, which requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, 2GB of RAM and either a G5- or Intel- processor (an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz chip and 4GB of RAM are recommended). VST, Audio Units, Core Audio and RTAS interfaces are all supported. The new software costs $535.
