Play 5.0.1 Additions

Amp Simulator and Ohmicide
Now included in this special Play 5.0.1 upgrade, the Amp Simulator and Ohmicide multi-band distortion plug-ins are now included for use with all EastWest collections, containing thousands of instruments of all types. For film/tv/game composers or musicians looking for a more edgy sound, this powerful combination opens up a whole new world of possibilities using real instruments as the source instead of oscillators, or a combination of both.

To use the Amp Simulator and Ohmicide simply install Play 5.0.1 from the EW Installation Center. The Play 5.0.1 update will automatically add these new FX to all your installed products. You do not have to install any additional library updates.
