The 2005 Winter NAMM show saw the introduction ofEastWest's Colossus, a high quality, General MIDI compatible sound set.
One of the strongest advantages to Colossus is the fact that it is a massive 32-gigabyte virtual instrument that includes all of the instruments and SFX in the GM specification, plus more. Recorded by Quantum Leap producer Nick Phoenix and multiple Prof. Keith O. Johnson, Colossus includes 15 gigabytes of new sounds, a new 2 gig piano, and 15 gigs of sounds from the range of Quantum Leap and EastWest titles.
A hardware rack-mount version of Colossus called Colossus Live will follow the software release.
MSRP $995.00. Slated for release on February 28
