EastWest MIDI Guitar Instruments out now

EastWest and Fishman aim to unlock guitar’s potential

Award-winning virtual instrument makers EastWest have teamed up with Fishman, creators of the acclaimed TriplePlay Wireless MIDI Guitar Controller, to develop a series of virtual instruments specifically for MIDI guitarists.

The new EastWest MIDI Guitar Instruments series is different from the current EastWest virtual sounds, which are optimized for keyboards, in that they have been selected and designed to take advantage of the complex and unique waveforms produced by a guitar's vibrating strings.

Current Fishman TriplePlay users will notice the EastWest instruments do not have to be loaded for each string. EastWest included a system that loads the instruments on all strings at the same time, greatly reducing the computer resources required, and especially if the instrument uses SSL EQ/Compression, Ohmicide multi-band distortion, EastWest Convolution reverb, or EastWest Amp Simulator, included in the EastWest PLAY software for each collection.

The EastWest MIDI Guitar Series has been released as 5 volumes: Orchestra, Ethnic & Voices, Soundscapes, Guitar & Bass and Keys & Percussion.

Fishman’s TriplePlay Wireless MIDI Guitar Controller now includes updated v1.4 software with a newly designed interface that features an improved look and feel, enhanced DAW compatibility for faster performance and a better user experience, an optimized sound library, full 64-bit compatibility with plugins, and maximized foot controller functionality.

The five collections are available now for an introductory price of $159 each, down from a regular price of $179 each.
