For the first time, EastWest have opened up their vast catalog to those of you wishing to take your music to the next level starting at less than a dollar a day! ComposerCloud is perfect for anyone involved in music creation who need access to the most awarded range of virtual (software) instruments, anytime, anywhere.
ComposerCloud X requires a minimum commitment of one year. In addition to over 40,000 instruments included, you will also have access to new releases in the future at no additional charge.
How does a ComposerCloud membership work?
ComposerCloud X members use the EastWest Installation Center software (see video below) to activate and download the collections included in your plan. All collections are downloaded to your computer. You only need to download each collection "one time". Once downloaded you will access the instruments from your local computer. When you need more instruments, go back to the cloud and download more.
When does my membership begin?
As soon as you register the license that you purchase from Time+Space your membership begins and you can start downloading EastWest's virtual instrument collections right away.
Do I need to be online to access my ComposerCloud products?
EastWest's PLAY software and the virtual instrument collections will be installed directly on your desktop or hard drive, as you are purchasing the yearly plan you will only be required to sync once a year. After download and activation you can use the instruments on or offline.
How long does it take to download products from ComposerCloud?
Most of EastWest's award-winning products offer unprecedented detail which can result in substantial file sizes. Therefore you will find it more convenient to download each product overnight using the Installation Center software. The good news is you only have to do this one time. The Installation Center software will monitor your download with a progress bar and will resume any partially downloaded product should there be any interruption. The Installation Center also gets you activated so you are ready to make some music!
Do I need an iLok security key to use products from ComposerCloud?
No! For the first time, EastWest are offering iLok machine (electronic) licenses that are placed on your computer that do not require the separate purchase of an iLok2 security key. However, if you already have an iLok2 security key you can choose to use that instead for portability, and everything will still work as before. You will select between a iLok machine (electronic) license or iLok2 security key in the Installation Center during the activation of any product. Please note: ComposerCloud is not compatible with iLok1.
Can I use the products I've downloaded on multiple machines?
For iLok machine (electronic) licenses, activation is limited to one machine per individual connected with a membership. If you upgrade your computer equipment you can deactivate your license and reactivate on your new computer. To use ComposerCloud on multiple computers you have the iLok2 key option.
Can I continue to purchase perpetual licenses for individual products?
Yes, with some exceptions, EastWest products will still be available for individual purchase, and any products you purchased previously will always be available to you, whether you retain your ComposerCloud membership or not. Purchased products are in addition to ComposerCloud products so you could use these on multiple computers at the same time.
What happens to my compositions if I cancel my membership?
Nothing will happen to your compositions if you choose not to renew your membership. Anything composed during your membership will be yours to use as you choose forever. You simply won't be able to access the instruments as before to create new compositions. In the unlikely event you decide to cancel you can render (bounce) the instruments in your compositions to your digital audio workstation before you leave.
What if I have issues downloading my products?
If you are having an issue you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or open a live chat where we would be happy to help.
