Quantum Leap SD2

EastWest has announced the latest versions of its Quantum Leap virtual-instrument software, StormDrum 2.0, and the Play 2.0 software for programming the instrument collections. SD2 includes several new instruments, such as the mridgangam which is sampled from a two-headed Indian drum that offers a variety of tones. The Khamak represents another drum from India, while the Persian Daf features high-pitched sounds. Ten additional drums have been added, each played with a variety of brushed techniques.

The Play 2.0 update adds several editing capabilities, expanding the user's control over acoustic parameters. The program provides a variety of effects and modulators, in addition to adjustable positioning of virtual microphones.

StormDrum 2.0 can be purchased for $400 and works on both Mac and Windows programs, as a standalone program or VST plug-in. Play 2.0 is available for $270 and also supports both platforms.
