Czar of Midi
Since: Apr 04, 2002
The instrument is powered by their stabel platform player called Kontact. I use several of their instruments that use Kontact and like the easy GUI.
As for the sounds, yes they are all their cracked up to be. I would suggest going to the EastWest site and having a listen to the demo tunes. They will either convince him or turn him away.
I personally dont use it as I have more then enough symphonic instruments in synth for, but if I had an extra bit of cash laying around it is something I might invest in.
