East West introduced Quantum Leap RA, a sample library of rare and ethnic instruments, at the 2005 Winter NAMM Expo.
RA is a massive 14 Gigabyte virtual instrument that covers a vast array of world instruments, many unique and unusual, from six areas of the world including: Africa; Americas and Australia; Europe; Far East; India; Middle East; and Turkish Empire. An elaborate extension of the sample library called “Rare Instruments”, conceived a few years prior, all of the sounds from “Rare Instruments” are included in RA, but only represents one-tenth of the content. The other ninety percent of RA was meticulously recorded with the finest world musicians, microphones, and consoles at Ocean Way Studios in Hollywood, CA and produced by Nick Phoenix, Pacemaker and Tony Austin.
RA comes as a virtual instrument which includes a high-performance Native Instruments software interface powered by the efficient Kontakt audio engine, including Direct-from-Disk, for Mac and PC (*With freely-downloadable Direct-from-Disk extension).
MSRP $995.00. Scheduled for release on February 28.
