The EastWest Hollywood Brass Gold Virtual Instrument (Download) is a comprehensive brass virtual instrument that provides complete control over the players, and includes a complete range of playing techniques. The collection was produced by Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix, and Thomas Bergersen, and engineered by the award-wining Shawn Murphy.

The samples were recorded in EastWest Studio 1, widely regarded as a great brass recording room, but unlike the Diamond Edition, utilizes a single microphone position. It does however include the full lineup of articulations. Also included are new brass reverb impulses taken from the Quantum Leap Spaces convolution reverb. The instrument runs on the next-generation and completely revamped PLAY 3 engine.
