The 8Dio Dobro Solo is the the fifth installment in their Natural Acoustic Series – a studio collection of high-end deep-sampled acoustic instruments. 8Dio Dobro is a passionate, deep-sampled (+2100 samples) pristine sounding American Dobro.
8Dio recorded the Dobro Solo in great detail, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises, real note bends up/down. In addition they also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play everything in a strummed fashion. 8Dio Dobro comes with 18 core patches divided into natural, morphed and synthetic categories. The natural category contains things such as natural dobro, tenor and piccolo dobro – whereas the morphed category contains the Dobro mixed with other instruments (e.g. Grand Piano, Steel String Guitar, Mandolin and more exotic type of instruments). The synthetic category contains the Dobro mixed with different type of synths.
8Dio Dobro Solo is on introduction sale $99 (goes $139 on 9/15).
The 8Dio Bassoon Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Far). The core of the Bassoon is its highly advanced legato system, which contains both slow and fast legato. The legato system allows you to play legato with passionate arcs, sustains, staccatissimo, expressive marcatos, etc. 8Dio recorded arcs with both non-vibrato, medium and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant. In addition they also added trills, runs, staccatissimo and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve sounds and natural click noises, etc.
8Dio Bassoon Virtuoso is available now for $139.
