The East West MIDI Guitar Instruments, from producers Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, differ from the current East West virtual instruments, which are optimized for keyboards. They have been selected and designed to take advantage of the complex and unique waveforms produced by a guitars vibrating strings.
MGS Vol 2: Ethnic and Voices is comprised of 120 instruments divided into 4 categories: Bowed, Plucked, Voices, and Wind. In total, this volume contains over 17 GB of 16 bit / 44.1 kHz samples. Comprised from multiple award winning virtual instrument collections that includes Ra, Silk, Voices of Passion, Ghostwriter, Fab Four and Goliath, these instruments have been redesigned specifically for MIDI guitar controllers.

Current Fishman TriplePlay users will notice the EastWest instruments do not have to be loaded for each string. EastWest included a system that loads the instruments on all strings at the same time, greatly reducing the computer resources required, and especially if the instrument uses SSL EQ/Compression, Ohmicide multi-band distortion, EastWest Convolution reverb, or EastWest Amp Simulator, included in the EastWest PLAY software for each collection.
