Hollywood Fantasy Voices puts the power of singer Merethe Soltvedt’s majestic voice at your fingertips, along with full male and female choirs. Anytime you need ethereal, floating vocals to capture the essence of battles, lost kingdoms, or emotional trials, Merethe’s voice will sell the scene even when nothing else does the trick. She lent this library the same power and grace she brings as the lead vocalist for Two Steps From Hell. If you enjoy fantasy movies, you’ll love this: Every word she recorded for the Hollywood Fantasy Voices library comes directly from Tolkien’s Elvish language, allowing you to make your scores as authentic as possible!

When does my subscription begin?
As soon as you have signed up and we have received your first payment your membership begins and you can start downloading our virtual instruments right away.
Do I need to be online to access my ComposerCloud+ instruments?
Our OPUS engine will be installed on your computer and the virtual instruments will be installed either on your computer or external hard drive (we highly recommend either internal or external Solid State Drives separate from the system drive for the best performance and load times). Search, audition, and instrument downloads require an internet connection. If you purchased our optional hard drive with all content included, your computer will need to be online once a month for license validation. We suggest users with offline computers purchase the yearly plan which only requires syncing once a year.
Can I purchase a hard drive with all the instruments of ComposerCloud+ included instead of downloading them?
Yes, the ComposerCloud+ Sound Data hard drive is available for purchase here. This is ideal for subscribers with slow or limited internet or those who require additional hard drive storage.
Do I need an iLok security key to use products from ComposerCloud+?
No! For the first time, we are offering iLok electronic licenses that are placed on your computer and do not require the separate purchase of an iLok 2 or 3 security key. However, if you already have an iLok security key you can choose to use that instead for portability. You will select either an iLok electronic license or iLok security key in the Installation Center during activation. Please note: ComposerCloud+ is not compatible with iLok 1.
Can I use the instruments I’ve downloaded on multiple machines?
Activation of the ComposerCloud+ license is limited to two devices (directly to a computer or iLok key) per subscription. To use ComposerCloud+ on more than two computers you have to either deactivate the license from one computer to move it to another, or if the license is on an iLok key, just plug that into the device you wish to use.
Can I continue to purchase perpetual licenses for individual products?
Yes, with some exceptions, our 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+ subscription 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?
If you do not have an active license for the libraries, they will not load up in the Opus software, but any tracks you have exported to audio will continue to playback. However, nothing will happen to your compositions if you pause or cancel your membership, you simply won’t be able to access the instruments as before to create new compositions or make edits to the Midi instrument performance. 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. You can always resubscribe, activate the license, and those software instrument tracks will reload for you to use again.
What if I have issues downloading my products?
EastWest’s Support Center offers Live Chat, the fastest way to reach a Support Team Member to help resolve any technical issues you may be having.
