East West sample library player

The EastWest PLAY System is a collection of components that work together to create music in an electronic environment. The heart of the system is the PLAY Advanced Sample Engine, a software sample player designed to work with any of the libraries created especially for it. The PLAY Sample Engine can run on a Macintosh computer or a Windows PC, and on both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
The PLAY Advanced Sample Engine can generate no sound unless it is loaded with samples from one or more of the PLAY System Libraries. The engine takes samples—short recordings of live instruments—from one or more libraries plus MIDI data and molds them into a musical expression: a single note, an entire piece, or anything in between.
When you buy the license for an EastWest or Quantum Leap library, the license for the PLAY Sample Engine is included. As you install more libraries on the same computer, they can all use the same PLAY Sample Engine.
OS X 10.7 or higher
Windows 7 and above.
