Eastwest Quantum Leap Ministry of Rock 2

Ministry Of Rock 2 was put together with one goal in mind: to create a virtual (software) instrument capable of producing sounds that could actually produce a hit record or film score without any live drum, bass, or guitar overdubs. The articulations and programming were all reverse engineered from actual performances. The 57 gigabyte collection features LIVE technology which makes multisampled drums sound like a live performance.

Produced by Nick Phoenix and recorded at the Legendary EASTWEST Studios by Phoenix, Doug Rogers, and Rhys Moody, Ministry Of Rock 2 features some of the industries top players like Shane Gibson, guitarist with KoRn/Stork/Schwarzenator; Greg Suran, guitarist with Goo Goo Dolls/Avril Lavigne/Glee; Doug Rappaport, guitartist with Edgar Winter/Potent; and Tal Bergman, drummer with Billy Idol, LL Cool J, Rod Stewart, Terence Trent Darby, Joe Zawinul.

The drums for Ministry Of Rock 2 were recorded in EASTWEST Studio 1 on three large rock kits from DW, Gretsch, and Ludwig, along with 6 additional snares. Top vintage and modern gear from Neve, Neumann, Telefunken, AKG, Manley, Fairchild, Royer, Chandler and Meitner were employed for a legendary sound. Repetition samples were recorded for everything as well as extreme dynamics and three mic positions for drums (close + room, or close + compressed room) to dial in the desired sound and an ultra-realistic performance. Any drum from any kit can be selected to create a custom kit, plus there are 6 additional snare drums to choose from.

Ministry Of Rock 2 guitars were recorded on Fender Jaguar, Fender Telecaster Thinline, Carvin 7 String, Baritone, Gibson Les Paul, and Schecter 7 String through Fender, Divided By Thirteen, Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Bogner and Vox Amps. Samples feature round robin, hammer on and pull off legato, sliding legato and dozens of other techniques. Dual channel recordings let you pick a wicked real amp sound or use the direct signal with popular plug-ins.

Ministry Of Rock 2 also includes all of the remastered content from Hardcore Bass and Hardcore Bass XP plus an all-new 5 string Musicman Stingray bass with 7000 samples and true legato. Fender, Hofner, Gibson, Silvertone, Rickenbacker, Musicman and Lakland basses were recorded through large bass rigs.

The Ministry of Rock 2 drums are set up as drum kits that you can use as the producers arranged them, or that you can customize by swapping out elements, for example, replacing the Sabian cymbals with Istanbul cymbals. They all use the same mapping of MIDI notes to drum and articulation, so it’s easy to try out other drum kits combinations without having to change the notes you’ve recorded in your sequencer.

All the drums were recorded with multiple microphones, and you have control in the Player UI over how much of each sampled audio to include in the mix, and where to pan it in the soundscape. One set of microphones sits close to the drum kit and overhead. Another set of microphones is positioned further back to capture more of the sound of the room. These room mics are available in 2 versions, using the signal: directly from the mics, or after passing through a compressor to increase the overall volume (without distortion of the loudest hits).

The Drums in Ministry Of Rock 2 feature positional sampling, so you can access the sound of different parts of the drum. It also features left and right hand sampling, round robin repeated notes, and repetitions sampling. Repetitions sampling makes the drums play like a live performance. These samples were extracted from a live performance and they play back when you play fast repeated notes. We call this “Live Technology.”

Full and "less load" instruments are included for all three drum kits: DW, Ludwig, and Gretsch. Each kit has a rock and a metal variant. Some kits feature a tighter sound and with tuned kicks and snares. Use these versions for a more polished sound. Many different snare drums options are available: Black Beauty, Brady, DW, GMS, NC1, NC2, Sonor, and Tempus

Left channel: direct
Fender Telecaster Thinline
The 1972 Telecaster Thinline guitar features a warmer sound and a rounder semi-hollow ash body, a C-shaped maple neck, bullet-style truss rod, ’70s vintage hardtail strings-through-body Strat bridge, three-bolt neckplate, and two wide-range humbucking pickups.
Right channel: Divided By Thirteen Amp
Left channel: Vox Amp
Carvin
Rock/metal guitar with a full tone. It has 11-gauge strings and is tuned to Drop C. Each note (for both the neck and bridge pickups) was sampled twice; during playback, both samples are automatically played together, though one panned hard right and the other hard left, for a genuine double-tracked sound. In the instrument names, these two samples are referred to as S1 and S2. Both the S1 and S2 articulations, panned hard left and hard right respectively, are loaded together on the same MIDI channel. The image at the right shows both the S1 and S2 instruments appearing together in PLAY’s Instrument drop-down and both on channel 1.
Both channels: Carvin Amp
Baritone
The Baritone guitar is a variation on the standard guitar with a longer scale length. The baritone played here is made by Danelectro and uses custom modified lipstick pickups. The greater length of the strings allows it to be tuned to a lower range and, together with thicker 14-gauge strings, gives it a wicked full tone. The Baritone is available for both lead and rhythm styles.
Right channel: Carvin Amp
Left channel: direct
Gibson Les Paul
The Gibson Les Paul guitar is a solid-body electric guitar originally developed in the early 1950s. It is a favorite amongst metal guitarists.
Right channel: Mesa Boogie Amp
Left channel: direct
Schecter 7-String
The C7 FR Hellraiser from Schecter is a guitar that metal players love, with its deep and crunchy 7-string tones and a Floyd Rose tremolo for breaking out tremolo tricks. It has a mahogany body and 3-piece mahogany neck. Its Active EMG 707-TW humbuckers push the limits of high-output guitar mayhem.
Right channel: Marshall Amp
Left channel: Bogner Amp

Fender, Hofner, Gibson, Silvertone, Rickenbacker, Musicman and Lakland basses

The Stingray 5 was the first bass to feature active electronics and advancements such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss-rod system, and rock-solid bridge. The instrument is constructed with a select hardwood body, maple neck, Schaller BM tuners, 3-band active EQ, and a Music Man humbucker/piezo bridge.
Right channel: Ampeg Amp
Left channel: SWR Amp
The rest of the basses in Ministry of Rock 2 are remasterings of the classic basses in EastWest’s popular Hardcore Bass library (2003) and Hardcore Bass Expansion (2004). The original sounds, including the separate amplifiers on the left and right tracks, where that technique was used in the XP basses, have been retained.
Lakland Bass
The Lakland 55-94 Skyline Standard bass is equipped with their familiar MM/J pickup configuration and a custom 3-band preamp. The master volume pot can be pulled to bypass the active preamp. The 55-94 has a 3-way toggle for coil splitting. Features include an ash body, maple neck with a 35" scale and 22 frets, Hipshot-licensed Ultralight tuners, and a Lakland Dual Design bridge.

63 Höfner Violin Bass
This vintage ’63 Höfner is the “Beatles’ Bass.” It has a two-piece neck, exotic bird’s eye maple finish, and gold-plated hardware. Many players revere Höfner’s Violin Bass as a legend because of its historical significance and its warm, woody, doublebass-like amplified tone. The Höfner Violin Bass is a unique instrument with a smooth, sweet sound.
Right channel: 50s Ampeg rig with an RCA 44 ribbon mic and a Manley tube signal path
Left channel: 80s large Ampeg rig with a Sennheiser 451 dynamic mic and a Neve solid state signal path

The EB2 bass guitar was launched in early 1958. It is a hollow-body electric bass that features a Bass/Baritone pushbutton for two different tonal characteristics. It features a curly maple arched top, back, and rims with ivoroid binding. A slim, fast, low-action neck joins the body at the 18th fret.

The Vintage Tone Selector activates a capacitor in the treble pickup circuit to emphasize the high end.
