Quantum Leap Rare Instruments (from the producer of the multi-award winning Quantum Leap Brass collection) features 16 groundbreaking, ethnic, multi-sampled instruments. Rare Instruments is the most expressive ethnic library ever created, including up to 54 variations for some instruments on 3 CD-ROMs. In some cases the natural range of the original instrument has been expanded, thereby creating instruments that are more playable than the original!! These instruments have been meticulously recorded in studios, not in some village in Africa on a home recorder; consequently the recording quality and standard of programming is superior to all other ethnic collections. Producer Nick Phoenix also produced Quantum Leap Brass and Quantum Leap Guitar and Bass, so you know exactly what quality to expect from this collection. Quantum Leap Rare Instruments is the Rolls Royce of ethnic collections!
