That's compared to 2500€ if you buy them separately ;).

I think most people here like myself already own all of what's included with the CCC.

Well at least I'll have the option to buy just the gold pianos or maybe Play Pro if that's available.

Hey Doug,

Can we expect a crossgrade prise also from Bos.290 NI to the Pianos Gold?

It seems like a good deal, although how much space will be needed for all of that - I should work that out at some point. I reckon at least 200Gb at least though.

Thats a good question!
I would buy that if the price are "nice".

Does it come with all the boxes as well, just like you bought them separately, or are all the discs thrown into 1 big box?

One package (see graphic), the main difference with this version is you can "customize the contents" provided you order from the US soundsonline.com site only (we can't do this from the European site or through dealers, their CCC content is fixed).

This is a great deal if you were considering getting EW libraries for some time and now want to take the big leap.

Caution for Europeans who are considering getting the customized package from the US website: be aware that in addition to the list price, you'll have to add import duties, and VAT on top of all that (including shipping) - all of which will make it considerably more expensive. Rates vary from country to country.

What about buying the gold pianos by themself? I purposely held off on buying the pianos during the promotion so I could wait and buy this one.

If I buy the customized CCC from the US site I assume VAT for Italy should be +20%, and what should be the shipping fee?
But, Doug, isn't the customized version ever coming for european customers?

Thank you

It kept the core forumers excited and unified... :D

In my secret dreams I some times dared to think that it would be Forbidden Planet though...
hhhhhoo :rolleyes: ... but maybe EW will repeat it then too... :)

CCC Play looks absolutely fantastic.

If you're not happy with this release, have a good hard look at yourself. EWQL isn't there solely to provide for you. There are a number of other people (6 billion of us in fact) that also need releases.

I won't be getting this one for a very very long time, despite it being perfect for me - I bought CCC NI for 900 US and I need to get a ton more use out of it first - I hope there will be some kind of upgrade from CCC NI in the future, but to be honest, this current package should suffice to destroy all opposition in the market.

Platinum Plus + Choirs + Pianos + SD2 + RA + MOR + GYPSY + VOP?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?! I mean seriously... SERIOUSLY.

Who can complain about that? The price is virtually giving it away when SOplat and pianos cost 1400 by themselves. The only criticism I could possibly level is that this might be a little bit in front of the technology available right now (64 bit sound card drivers aren't universal yet). And that's not EW's fault that they are better than the rest of the industry :cool:

Still need 16 bit 3 mic Play Choirs! With the other basic Libraries starting to have the 16 bit option - why not give them all 16 bit 3 mic option a la Play Platinum Complete Plus so everything can be used in one common format, whether working in 16 or 24 bit?. Why stop at 16 bit, but with only one mic as with Play Pianos Gold?

SO is THE flagship product; there are business reasons to go with the 16 bit version, I can't imagine you running out of RAM trying to "scratchpad" your ideas with Choirs?

There are 32-bit versions included for all products as well as 64-bit versions, so you are covered if you don't have a 64-bit system.

I don't think you're understanding my question! And having a 16 bit option was my idea, at least here in the forum - a long time ago, so you don't need to explain the reason for using 16 bit, it's been covered here ad nauseum.

I understand your enthusiasm here. I'm not sure everything else out there is "opposition" to be "destroyed," though. I rally behind East West in that I own most of the PLAY products released to date. But I don't wish the undoing of any of the other libraries I use and love, even if they are made by smaller, lesser known people who also work very hard at what they do.

Doug, will the customisation come to the European site too eventually? The customisation is the killer idea (I already own SO and Goliath).

I fear the import taxes of the US customised version would be crippling for us Euro types, though...

I'm just making an offhand comment about the development cost for 64 bit PLAY. I've got CCC for Kontakt; there is just no reason for me to move until I can get some cheaper solutions for my break out box, and a good solution for 64 bit Windows.

If it was my business, I would have been a tightass and just done the 32 bit stuff. Native Instruments hasn't felt any pressure!

The customized CCC is amazing. I wish it had been around last summer.

A year ago, I was a 22-year-old young film composer who had never heard of EWQL.

Over the past year, I've spent a huge portion of my annual income on EWQL PLAY libraries (with absolutely no regrets!). I'm the proud owner of half a dozen PLAY libraries, and I use EWQL almost exclusively for my work. :) I scrounged for every penny, ate a lot of spaghetti, and racked up my credit card for the PLAY libraries I own.

I own SO platinum plus complete, SC, MOR, Pianos, SD2, and VOP. I want RA, SILK, Gypsy, Goliath, and the SD2 upgrade. I wish there was some kind of bundle discount for that. RA, Gypsy, and Goliath are included in the CCC. I also know about the RA/SILK bundle. The SD2 expansion is bundled with SD, and also with the RA/SILK/SD2/SD2 upgarde bundle. But those both include SD, which I already own ...

Let me ask this: is it legal to "split" the CCC with another person? OR, could I buy the CCC and transfer some of the product licenses to another person (without having installed or authorized it ... a "virgin" prorduct)?

It would cost LESS for me to buy the CCC and the additional products, than it would for me to just buy all the other PLAY products I want. But, since I already own most of the CCC selections, that's a waste of discs and licenses if I can't sell or give them to someone else ...

Oh well, such are the burdens of decision-making when it comes to amazing sample libraries at amazing prices. :) Like I said, I just wish this had been around last summer. I would have saved A LOT of money over the past year. Thanks EWQL for being so great! I recommend your products all the time.

I own some PLAY and Yes, if I buy CCC, no matter what I choose, I'll end up having 3 duplicate libraries.
Can I suggest EW to discount $99 each Library that i don't want to get? (The 99$ equal with additional lisence) I am using only 1 computer so I don't need that additional lisence.
Please consider my request.
Or Add more title in the CCC is even better :)
Thanks
Sonny

No and no. Sorry Alex.

East West HAS been known to make rare exceptions. The only way to know for sure is by Sending a PM or direct email to Doug.

Good luck! :)

I don't know how the Play licences work, but in the Kontakt CCC, it was simply a stack of DVDs in a small packet with serial stickers on the side. Nothing preventing you from giving away some of the libraries to someone else.

You can't share the SAME library with someone else, that's a violation of the licence I would imagine.

Hey all,
The new CCC looks very exciting, especially because my new core i7 DAW with 12GB of memory is being delivered next week, which will run Vista 64bit for maximum ram usage. PLAY would be wonderful to use with that. But the thing is, I bought the NI CCC only a year ago. So I'm wondering, and probably many with me, if there's going to be an upgrade from NI CCC to PLAY CCC.
Can anyone tell me if this is going to happen, and possibly in what timeframe?

composeralex
04-20-2009, 10:46 AM
I didn't think so. :( Just had to ask.

I suppose there's nothing physically stopping one from doing either anyway, but if it's illegal, then it's illegal.

It would be nice if ALL PLAY products were options for the customizable PLAY CCC ...

Only just caught up with this - great.

And being generally slow off the mark, now I only just realised Silk isn't available in the deal - is there a reason for this?

Are there separate iLok authorizations for each product? Some other companies will have one auth for the total bundle and individual instruments (or plugins) can't be split off and sold. If it's the former then this really is a great deal and I have to find a way to do it!

The upgrades available for NI version to PLAY version are for the individual products, there is no CCC-NI to CCC-PLAY upgrade as both are heavily discounted and some products are different.
