No, the EWQLSO Hall is where Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs were recorded, well over a decade ago.

It's "Northwest Orchestral Hall" in Spaces II, in real life called "Benaroya Hall", home to the Seattle symphony. See website link and pictures below.

The equivalent built in reverb in Play is "EW Hall LR".

As Dominik mentioned, there were legal reasons that EW wasn't allowed to specifically identify this hall. That didn't stop users from speculating about where exactly the samples were recorded, and looking at those beautiful shiny boxes EW used to use to ship their products, and comparing pictures to pictures from real concert halls, it wasn't too difficult to figure out.

Brass is routed to S. Cal. Hall Brass (FR for front speakers, RR for rear speakers - output is routed to front and rear speakers, and wet rendering tracks).

That said, since my computer is ageing (2009), in addition, the default routing for all orchestral instruments is to the San Francisco Hall - using a single reverb rather than specific reverbs for individual instruments.

In an ideal world, I would use all VSTs and reverbs and effects all the time, but my computer just can't handle that kind of strain, so I have be judicious about which instruments and effects to bring online without crashing the thing.

(I also use Sibelius at the same time, which can be demanding in resources for larger scores; and increasingly Dorico).
