EastWest Product Installer 7.3.1

EastWest software is compatible with the latest Mac OS 12/ Monterey and Windows 11. Opus runs natively on Intel and Apple M1 CPUs. PLAY and SPACES II are Intel based and require Rosetta to run on an Apple M1 machine.

PLAY 6.1.9

PLAY 6.1.9 upgrade is for Mac users running OS X 10.7 or higher, and for Windows users running 7 and above.

PLAY 6.1.9 is now available for free to all EastWest customers. If you are a current PLAY 6 user please use the Installation Center to get your update.

  • If you are using a Mac and get an "unidentified developer" message when clicking on the "Play Installer 6.1.9.pkg" icon, right-click or control-click on the icon instead and proceed.

IMPORTANT! For Hollywood Backup Singers, Hollywood Pop Brass, Voices of Opera, Voices of Soul, Spaces II, Voices of the Empire and Hollywood Choirs users, PLAY should be updated first and then product instruments should be updated after.
