Project File


An orchestral MIDI mock-up designed to demonstrate the strengths and versatility of Eastwest Quantum Leap’s Symphonic Orchestra sample library, while maintaining a very low resource footprint. Calm and flowing, bombastic and playful, the piece transitions through several cinematic moments in order to cover a variety of musical styles.

The Project File

All of the MIDI and CC data used to sculpt the final performance

Printed audio STEMS for each section of the orchestra, so you don’t have to load the samples to follow along

Track layout, signal flow, and routing optimized for simplicity and light resource usage

Notated Score

Included is the full score in PDF format, PLUS separated parts for each orchestral section for easier reading

Parts include: Woodwinds, Brass, Strings, Percussion, Piano and Harp.

Plugins & Production

See how the final mix was shaped using nothing but free stock plugins, and Spaces II (included in East West’s Composer Cloud)

No need for expensive paid plugins

  • The project uses about 4GB of RAM in total, so I’d recommend a machine with 8GB of RAM minimum.

  • Note: This project was created with and confirmed to work flawlessly on a 2011 Macbook pro (i7)


I don't have the sample libraries listed. Can I still use the project file?

Yes. You can load the “LITE” project and work with the audio stems that cover all of the used sample libraries, or you can replace the sample libraries used with your own. Note that it will not sound the same as the full mix provided.

I don't use Cubase or Logic. Can I still use this project?

As of this writing, the files included will only work with either Cubase or Logic.
