Play gets faster
The fifth version of EastWest’s Play software, aptly named Play 5, brings with it a reported performance upgrade that makes it the fastest version to date due to improved load times achieved by the optimised engine. A variety of professional audio processing tools are bundled as part of the release, such as the SSL/EW FX Global Suite, which includes filter, EQ, compressor, gate/expander, transient shaper and stereo bus compressor tools, as well as 726 additional reverb impulses for Convolution Reverb.
Meanwhile, the EastWest Goliath instrument collection for soundtrack composers and musicians now also includes an Amp Simulator and the Ohmicide multi-band distortion software. Both Play 5 and the Goliath update are available to download from the EastWest Support Center.
