Instruments from China, Persia and India.

All instruments featured in SILK are multi-sampled with extreme attention to detail offering the maximum in expression. Quantum Leap SILK contains extensive articulations, interval sampling (where appropriate), round robin (alternate samples), legato scripting, and phrases to give the feeling of smooth effortless performance - like silk. Each musician recorded for SILK is a master of his instrument, providing the best and most accurate sound available. SILK also allows users to adapt the instruments using dozens of useful micro tunings in the key of their choice. This microtuning system is the first of it´s kind, and is a true breakthrough for PLAY.

Silk Route

"Intended as an extension of Quantum Leap RA, Quantum Leap SILK looks to give users access to rare instruments from across Asia played masterfully by renowned artists," says QUANTUM LEAP Producer Nick Phoenix. "Extensive scripting is employed in SILK along with our PLAY 64-bit (with 32-bit capability) sample engine, offering composers a lot of control over the end result. PLAY´s scripting, microtuning and convolution reverb are a powerful combination, making it an unparalled interface for these sounds. SILK is revolutionary in that the microtuning and scales actually teach users how to employ these sounds in an authentic way."

Flag DEspaceKEYS 4/2009


Die Spielbarkeit der Library ist hervorragend. Es bedarf hier nicht wie bei vielen anderen Produkten einer langen Einarbeitungszeit, um realistische Ergebnisse zu erreichen. Alles ist gut durchdacht und auf den Musiker ausgelegt, der sich nicht lange mit technischen Details beschäftigen möchte. Die Sounds klingen überragend und manch ein Ethno-Instrumentalist würde sich beim Hören der Samples wünschen, dass sein Instrument einmal so perfekt und doch mit solcher Seele aufgenommen werden würde. Diese Library ist ein echter Gewinn – auch für denjenigen der schon über diverse Ethno-Sounds verfügt. Selbst wenn das Einsatzgebiet einer solchen Library begrenzt sein wird, bietet SILK eine absolut gelungene Fortführung und klanglich überragende Ergänzung zu Quantum Leap RA. Im Zusammenspiel mit Stormdrum 2 sind Film- und Game-Komponisten für alle klanglichen Reisen nach Fernost gewappnet.
