EastWest in Hollywood announces that this year, it celebrates 25 years as an industry leader in soundware and virtual instrument development. The company has launched a new, redesigned Website and a new logo this month to reflect its worldwide standing as a producer and distributor of software instruments, with a clientele that spans a who's who of the music, film, television, games, multimedia and performing arts industries.

EastWest is the brainchild of producer Doug Rogers, who has won many awards including "Recording Engineer of the Year." He founded EastWest in 1988, and since then, the company has received more than 60 international industry awards.

To celebrate the company’s 25th Anniversary in 2013, Rogers has signed several industry heavyweights to develop a Masters Series of virtual instruments, including Mark “Spike” Stent (Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Madonna, Muse; Joe Chiccarelli (Raconteurs, Killers, White Stripes); Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree); and drummers Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel) and Steve Sidelnyk (Madonna, Seal, Massive Attack). Nick Phoenix has produced Stormdrum 3 (SD3) with Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart, and Solo Cello with Tina Guo, to be released later this year.

“I am honored to work with such an amazing and talented group of people,” said Rogers. “Mark ‘Spike’ Stent, a British producer/engineer brings his experience of working with international superstars to the table. Accordingly, our new “Masters Series” of Virtual Instruments will reflect that kind of quality.”

The completion of Hollywood Orchestral Percussion, engineered by Shawn Murphy and part of the multiple award-winning Hollywood Orchestral Virtual Instruments Series, is planned for late 2013.
