I think the title sais it all.

I own I'd say 80% of EWQL's libraries. I've bought a composer pro bundle twice along with Hollywood and Symphony Orchestra so having a search box I think is more than needed.

I've worked with those libraries for years now so I know the paths but I can tell you for a fact that I know a lot of people who stopped using EWQL libraries after the first one they got. The libraries sound great it's a mess trying to find the articulations you want.

You could get inspiration from Omnipshere 2's search engine. Or any good synth out there. It's become a standard way of searching for patches so any new user or existing user will find themselves right at home.

Search box and finder with attributes. I know that your libraries are already sorted by instrument and attributes but for those of us how owns many of your libraries, we end up having percs and metals and woods and brass and strings all over the place.

A search box is the first step.

Hi Francois,

My name is Mario Walzberg. I (do my best to) compose and record music in my studio in which I make a lot of use from the EastWest instruments.

I now often have trouble finding back where I got an instrument from (e.g. from what instrument-group I loaded it), because I'm often not recalling to what "group" of instruments (libraries) it belongs.

I read your post (Aug. 2017) on the EastWest forum about not being able to find an instrument in the EastWest library, or a path to an instrument.
Since EastWest doesn't seem to respond on postings regarding this more than once posted problem, would you think with me about a solution to be made by the thousands of EastWest users themselves in a joint effort?
I imagine a simple list holding the exact names of all the EastWest instruments, including the structure/library in which they are to be found.
Like this:
G:\PLAY LIBRARIES EASTWEST\EW Hollywood Orchestral Percussion Gold\Hollywood Orch Percussion Instruments\Drums\5in x 14in Brass Ludwig Snare.ewi
The pathname to any instrument can easily be copied by the "contributors" from the Explorer (in Windows systems) or the Finder (in Mac-systems) to a list.
I could then make a webpage sorted to all of the full pathnames (excluding the disk-letter), and sorted to the instrument-filenames as well, and publish it on my website.

Do you also think this could be a way to make finding back specific instruments a lot easier?

I am very curious about your response!
I also mailed you this post through your website.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,
Mario Walzberg

Hi Admin,

Thanks for your reply!

(Though I do not understand how this went. I posted a reply to the thread of member: fbeauvaisc (name: François Beauvais) on October 13th 2017. That reply was not published on the forum for some reason. In spite of that I find a reply now!)

You wrote in your reply that the search option will be coming this month, but since there is no publishing date visual near to you reply, I wonder what month that will be, and if the search option will be available in a new EW Play version?

Thanks for your reply in advance!

Greetings,
Mario
