Symphonic Explorations


A light orchestral medley utilizing the versatility and efficiency of Eastwest’s Symphonic Orchestra Gold.

Designed to give beginners a strong starting point and insight into using virtual instruments, without needing a powerful computer or expensive software.

SKU N/A Categories ,


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

A mixture of approaches are used to illustrate how each one can be used, including keyswitches, expression maps/articulation sets, multi-timbral, and individual instrument tracks.

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 “Full project” file for Symphonic Orchestra, including all MIDI, plugins and routing, expression maps and mix settings
  • “LITE” project file with all instrument tracks disabled and samples unloaded, for a minimal resource footprint, and maximum compatibility.
    • Audio STEMS are included so you can still playback the project and hear it without even loading the samples.
  • Fully notated score including parts (PDF)
  • A PDF Quickstart Guide

Instant download available after purchase


  • Steinberg Cubase 8.5 (or higher) or Logic Pro X
  • East West Symphonic Orchestra Gold*  (Platinum works too)
  • East West Spaces II*

* Included in the Composer Cloud subscription


  • The project uses about 4GB of RAM in total, so I’d recommend a machine with 8GB of RAM minimum. 
  • Intel i7 2.6GHz quad-core or equivalent
  • All samples streaming from a 7200RPM HDD or faster
  • 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.

I’d suggest signing up to our newsletter to be informed when more DAWs are supported.

  1. Question


    Love this piece, and would love to check it out as I have this full library, but don’t have either of these DAWs. A MIDI File and Score version would be an insta-buy from me on this one. Any chance that might be added at some point? Also, will any of these projects be produced in Reaper going forward?

      Hi Ron, thanks for the kind words! While there is no MIDI & Score option available for this product just yet, it is planned for a future update.
      There is currently no plan to provide a Reaper version, but that could change in the future. Thanks!
