When sounds are sampled and presented in this quality and at this level of playability they become an inspiration in themselves. As a set of writing tools these instruments can take you out of your normal musical sphere and suggest new musical worlds to inhabit.
What happens if I lose my data or the hard drive crashes?
EastWest Orchestral Madness Hard Drives come on a 1 Terabyte G-Drive 7200rpm USB 3.0 (with USB 2.0 compatibility) Computer Powered External Hard Drive (subject to change). The hard drive includes a two-year limited warranty from the original manufacturer. The hard drive is subject to change without notice. The sound data will be replaced free of charge upon request should the hard drive fail, shipping costs may be applicable.
What are the system requirements for the optional external hard drive?
To obtain satisfactory performance from the supplied hard drive a USB 3.0 compatible computer is required. If your computer does not have a USB 3.0 connection, you can use the USB 2.0 connection supplied with the hard drive to copy the data to another (non energy saving) internal hard drive of at least 7200rpm; or external hard drive of at least 7200rpm that has a Firewire 800 (not 400) connection or faster, and use the supplied hard drive for backup. Note: USB 2.0 is too slow to stream ultra detailed virtual instruments, resulting in poor performance (pops/clicks/dropouts etc.). Check the system requirements for each product selected to make sure your system meets or exceeds the system requirements for the Diamond and Platinum versions of these products.
Can a USB 2.0 computer be upgraded to USB 3.0?
If your computer has an ExpressCard slot, you can purchase a USB 3.0 ExpressCard. If you have a tower system you can purchase a USB 3.0 PCIe Card.
This is my first EastWest purchase, do I need an iLok security key?
No! For the first time, we are offering iLok machine (electronic) licenses that are placed on your computer that do not require the separate purchase of an iLok2 security key. However, if you already have an iLok2 security key you can choose to use that instead for portability, and everything will still work as before. You will select between a iLok machine (electronic) license or iLok2 security key in the Installation Center during the activation of any product.
