Final Details

Even if you decide to cancel your subscription service to Sounds Online at any time, you keep the instruments in your compositions forever; however, it will require bouncing.

Eastwest’s PLAY software and virtual instrument collections are installed directly onto your hardrive; however, you will need to be online once a month for a validation if you’re on their monthly subscription plan. Only yearly plans can access instruments in an offline mode.
