8DIO/Troels Folmann releases "Progressive Metal Guitar" for Kontakt and "Rhythmic Aura RMX" for Stylus RMX
3rd October 2011
Progressive Metal delivers a collection of "brutally hard rocking" 7- and 8-string guitars in the style of Djent (e.g. Meshuggah, Periphery, Rammstein & Metallica). The collection contains over +60 patches and over 1500 deep-sampled phrases organized for song writing (chorus, verse, intro, outro, etc.). The full product contains over 600 minutes of high-end session material boiled down to the meanest collection of phat heavy guitars.
Progressive Metal was created with some of the best 8 strings (e.g. Mayones Custom, EST/LTD, Ibanes RG series) fitted with world-class pickups (e.g. Bare Knuckle, Aftermath, Lundgren), pre-amps (Fractal Audio), amps (e.g. Mesa Rectifier, Diezel VH4). 8DIO says that this is the most comprehensive selection of 8-string heavy guitars ever sampled.
Rhythmic Aura RMX consists of over 500 acoustic and tuned-based arpeggiations for Stylus RMX. Aura RMX comes in 10 different source categories created with source material from live orchestra, 7 and 8 string electric guitars, semi-acoustic guitars, electric violin, electric mandolin, voices, tuned percussion and tons of extreme sound design – all processed through a huge variety of amps and "mastered to perfection". Rhythmic Aura allows you to create compositions from scratch, but it can also be used as an underscoring tool allowing composers to quickly “dress” their compositions.
