Explore the instruments. Learn the libraries. Acquire some power tips and tricks in this 49-tutorial course, with producer David Earl, while watching these pro EastWest rock, pop, electronic and ethnic music PLAY instruments in action!
We all know EastWest for their premiere orchestral libraries. But did you know that they also have a multitude of instruments that are superb for all kinds of other music? They do! This “in-action” course, by David Earl, explores, explains and demonstrates the E/W collection of instruments and sample libraries that he deploys for rock, pop and electronic music in his own productions:
•Ministry of Rock 1
•Ministry of Rock 2
David takes you through each of the instruments' interfaces and controls. You learn, firsthand, how the the PLAY Engine adapts and evolves to best equip you for the the specific genre of each instrument. Then you explore the individual libraries as David picks and chooses the sounds that he features in the “in-action” productions designed and adapted for this course.
It’s cool that East West is now extremely affordable with a Composer Cloud subscription at soundsonline.com! So now's the best time to learn the EastWest collection of instruments and their sample libraries. Watch this course to unleash the production power and sonic inspiration that these incredible instruments have locked deep inside them!
Good tutorial review highlighting the perks of EWQL Play Engine and it's libraries in practical applications:
1. Ra, 2. Ghostwriter, 3-4. Ministry of Rock 1 & 2, and 5. Pro Drummer.
Some minor improvements: I found 'microtuning' was not explored enough' A more indepth review about 'Microtuning' feature found in RA and how it affects the patches would be appreceated (I couldn't distinguish it when I used it on some patches?). Secondly, another improvement would be providing 16-32bar sample session by means of 3-4 .mp3 STEMS (44.1k/16) and 3-4 MIDI (type_1) data for each suite described here so we can actually follow with our DAW on the two Sample Projects provided and get a better understanding on how the MIDI timing and velocities are used for said instruments in this lesson course, for example - stem1.wav stem2.wav midiType1_raInstrument1.mid, midiType1_raInstrument2.mid and we can tweak it on our own.
Sample projects in this format would be less than 10MB each, but have at least 3 instrument Midi files to explore.
