....look out on the 10th of April everyone, a mysterious black 'thing' with a shed load of bloom lighting fx surrounding it is coming ;p

so, any guesses? Worldbuilder built into the PLAY engine perhaps? Forbidden Planet? An over-lit blackhole sucking away more of your money?!

who knows... personally i think it would be better if we were told in advance, then we could discuss it and more interest would be drummed up...when a major Hollywood film is released in the cinemas, they dont not tell you what its called or about....

Actually, I have heard there's a pretty awesome movie coming out soon. Not 100% sure what it's about, but it's supposed to be really good. I'm pretty sure it has a good cast too. Not sure who though. I'm excited, that's all I know.

As for predictions, at first I assumed that the new PLAY PRO or 2.0 or whatever it's called was going to finally be released, but after reading your post, I'm changing my guess to Forbidden Planet.

Or else, a really really good movie. I'm not sure which though. Is Forbidden Planet a movie? That would really make a lot of sense now that I think about it. Because I was told that people on this planet aren't allowed to hear any details about the movie I mentioned earlier, so it's all falling into place now.

Or better yet, Bloom Lighting being added to the PLAY engine? I could get excited about that. Instead of just little lights here & there inside Sonar flickering on & off whenever a midi note is played, the PLAY engine could have an advanced lighting engine that could somehow turn binary into a spectacular light show?

Or, maybe it's a guitar. If East/West started making guitars, I'd at least want to look at them and see what they're all about. Unless of course, there was bloom lighting coming from behind the guitars, blinding the viewers, causing confusion.

Wait, is this East/West's way of showing their support for Scott MacIntyre?

That must be it. Either that, or Forbidden Planet.

I agree, but I don't think we'll be able to talk them into it.
It seems like EW would be glad to lose the profits to be gained by promotion just so they can surprise the fans. In a way, it's that sort of friendly fun that keeps the fans connected.

I wonder about this mysterious release. It's unlikely that they'd keep something small a secret. A lot of people would be disappointed if the suprise turned out to be just a patch. I'm leaning toward it being either an all-new instrument, or a hefty add-on.

The good news is, we won't have to wait long to find out.

Denny, Do you think it might be strings like Appasion...? If it is, you're right, it would be hard to pass up! BTW, thank you for your wonderful "Morning Adventure" I still can't believe it's not butter! It's a piece that one can study over and over. I wish you would do a Video of yourself working on a piece like this one - using EWQLSO exclusively. That would be priceless to those of us who are still struggling. Mike Patti has done several and they are all excellent and very inspirational. Glad your piece is the first EWQLSO PLAY Demo.

I think this might be the magic pill ! They claim that it allows you to obtain instant "Perfect Pitch".

The effect lasts for a couple of hours, then slowly fades away, but not to worry, there is ample supply, just keep ordering refills as your needs dictate !

1)New super mega ultra awesome symphonic orchestra?

2) Downloadable versions of Play libraries?

3)just... another new library? (could be nice as well).

well... these are my guesses...

May be new here, but I'm pretty sure it's pianos gold and the complete composers bundle PLAY the includes pianos gold.

Could also be Symphonic Turbo Tax where all available tax pubs and forms text are sung to you by the Symphonic Choir and VOP singers.

Wow, I wouldn't have though that this subject would go beyond my topic. Thank you, I'll see what I can do and if my system can handle a running recording program besides.

A new string library would be wonderful, but I guess some ideas in this topic are a lot more realistic since this library is probably far off in the future.

I met Michiel Post at the musikmesse and the complete composer play version was released 2 days ago if I understood well . the gold piano will be released soon .I guess it's play pro ( no demo unfortunately at the musikmesse , only a presentation) ,it's a download and the shape seems not to be a box.... maybe I'm wrong ,maybe not...:D

Drama and hype almost certainly indicates a new release that will appeal to a lot of users. Not to mention that PLAY pro kind of went hush and into hiding after a bit of initial fanfare. I'm guessing a download option as well.

Right. I have the first SEASON on HD. At that time Hd was fighting the was blu ray> HD war. Blu ray won out so Paramount stopped production on Season 2 and 3 HD. So I have season 1 HD. THere wont be a season 2 or three so I was making a small joke on the unobtinable.

Anyways I have a PS3 now so i can always get teh 2nd and 3rd season on Blu ray. What a mess. lol..

QL Pianos Gold is supposed to be a 16-bit version of QL Pianos.

and I believe with only one mic position but not sure

Denny S.
04-03-2009, 05:23 PM
and I believe with only one mic position but not sure

Already thought about that as well since a different sample depth alone wouldn't make such a dramatic difference.

A.Leung
04-03-2009, 05:33 PM
16 bit Pianoes. Ewwwwwww. WHO would want to rob the brilliance of those 24bit files - multi mic positions in the first place!? :eek:

Bessinnox
04-03-2009, 05:39 PM
a different sample depth alone wouldn't make such a dramatic difference.

I don't think so , 24 bit samples have more definitions , I own play plat plus and I can clearly hear the difference.On QL PIANO the 3 mics positions are awesome , I love to increase a little bit the room mic volume just to add the room ambiance and even without the convolution reverb it sounds great.

A.Leung
04-03-2009, 05:43 PM
Those three mic options makes ALL the difference IMHO.

Denny S.
04-03-2009, 06:01 PM
Yep, the mic setup is probably one of the strongest points for QL Pianos. The possibilities are just incredible for a virtual piano. Right now I can't really judge the difference between 16 and 24-Bit yet with my crappy speakers, guess I'll say the same about 24-Bit samples someday though.

paulwr
04-03-2009, 06:07 PM
I don't think I've recorded with a mere single mic position yet. Always more than one.

............ and back to the game of what comes next from E/W.........................

I'm betting the white background glow is pretty much the same style used for all of EW's advertised products.. Since PLAY PRO is stated to be a 'downloadable upgrade' and Forbidden Planet did not make any news at Musikmesse 2009 whatsoever, my guess is it's the new CCC too.

This doesn't have anything to do with the new release, but it made me think about something cool that EWQL could do...

A notation software designed specifically for EWQLSO. It's just an idea, because I know that other ones are very complete and you can load other VST's in them, but it could be very cool to have a notation sofware that could respond exactly to the type of articulation you are looking for. Master Keyswitch loaded, and the program takes care of the rest. Could be nice!

My guess is that this marketing strategy is a response to all the whining about the slippage in the choirs launch date. For that launch, they put a date out there, it slipped, and people were disappointed.

For this, I have a feeling that whatever it is, it is already shrink-wrapped and ready to go on April 10!
