Recording Magazine is excited about EastWest's new Hollywood Orchestra Opus Edition!
A couple of quotes from the review:
"Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix, and Shawn Murphy not only redesigned and reimagined the already stellar content but added a significant amount—130 GB!—of new recordings and content for the Opus Edition library. In addition, a new software engine, Opus, provides a faster, cleaner, and more flexible interface. And finally, EastWest has developed a new scoring engine, the Hollywood Orchestrator, which produces amazingly rich and complex results simply by playing standard chords."
"As a whole, the library sounds immediately wonderful, with minimal effort needed to achieve a professional sound."
"Each section comprises a complete set of meticulously captured articulations; the legatos in particular are some of the best I’ve heard."
"A ComposerCloud subscription will enable one to search through the entire database of sounds offered by EastWest, with the option to install a particular sound without the need to download the entire library. Brilliant!"
