EastWest - Silk (Ethnic Instruments)

“Silk is beautiful. It was initially designed as an extension of East West Quantum Leap's RA, THE go-to library for world/ethnic instruments in the TV/film/video game world. It is much more than that; it definitely stands on its own.

The detail in the instruments is stunning, and the playability factor is high. In regarding to the TV/film/documentary world, this should be in every composer's collection”
