A good bank of its orchestral, but a motor a little capricious

Vincent LF, 18.05.2011
I have several orchestral sound libraries (I'm an orchestrator). East & West Gold has many qualities, which make me use it regularly.

Let's make the point, starting with the quality of sounds ... and this is the highlight of the collection. The samples are really excellent, with an ambient sound taking which makes it very realistic, very easily, unlike other collections based on samples taken with microphones proximity. The release samples are superb and make the use of reberberation virtually useless.

Attention however, it is rather focused "big sound Hollywood" than "light and subtle shades". Wait for brass and explosive bass strings, with the possibility of making very aggressive sounds (Bartok Pizz, staccatissimo, etc ...) ... but no "real" legato (where the transition between each note Would itself be a sample, as in other competing collections).

From the point of view of the bank engine, the "Play Engine", I'm not very convinced. Cubase is the only one to be able to use a lot of hard drives, but I do not know how to do it. I do not meet with other collections.

In addition, the crossfade mode, ie the ability to crossfade from one sample to another during a long held note, using the modulation wheel as a controller, is not standard - It is necessary to load each additional sound each time. So that to make a violin track, for example, one is sometimes obliged to create several tracks: 1 violin staccato, 1 violin held, 1 violin crossfade. Well, it's not unacceptable, but it could be better.

Last remark: it is one of the rare collections to have a bank "violins 1" AND a bank "violins 2" ... often one is entitled only to a bank "violins" and one uses twice the program and The pan to simulate violins 1 and 2. It is still better to have really both sections.

One of the best orchestras

Marten, 29.07.2013
There are more expensive orchestral simulations, but in the middle price segment, the Gold edition is quite convincing.

A real torture is the installation, which is cumbersome and can take a long time depending on the computer configuration (together with the iLok). You feel as if you're in the middle of the computer-age, it's not that comfortable.

If this is surpassed, an intuitive player and, above all, the really lively, quite musical samples, which, in the abundance and selection of articulations, make realistic orchestral arrangements possible (in the context of what has been orchestrated up to late-romanticism).

The basic principle is "American", meaning that it is more likely to develop associations with film music than to think of Wagner or Mahler. Still, with subtle skill and patience, very subtle mixes of color can always be obtained, always assuming a clear idea of ??what an instrument or a group can and can do in a "real" orchestra.

Really helpful are the sampled rooms, so that in principle no unnatural "dry" instruments and acoustic close-ups are fabricated, which do not exist in a real orchestral sound. The symphonic orchestra clearly distinguishes this proportion from competing products.

The velocity effect via the modulation wheel (each instrument group is also present in such "modulatable" samples) allows for some really convincing dynamic processing and correspondingly expressive game.

It is somewhat annoying that the gold and silver samples are stored in different folders, so that you have to click and drag carefully to compare an instrument in both libraries. One gets with the gold version almost two libraries side by side.

Overall, it is recommended, but it takes some patience and enthusiasm in detail.
