8Dio is celebrating its 2nd Anniversary and invites you to celebrate with them during the month of August. They say there are a few big surprises coming, including their annual "Stand Out" contest, unique gifts and discounts and the company's "biggest announcement till date".

8Dio "Stand Out" Contest
The 8Dio "Stand Out" Contest is a competition seeking to showcase the exemplary and innovative musical talents of composer, producers, songwriters and sound designers from all over the world.

How much creativity can you pack into 3 minutes? Keep an eye out on 8Dio's Facebook and Twitter for the contest details.

Claire Bassoon Virtuoso
8Dio has also announced the second release of the Claire Virtuoso Woodwind series, the Claire Bassoon Virtuoso. They say "The Claire Virtuoso Woodwind series, produced by Emmy Nominated Composer Colin O'Malley, is a deep-sampled collection of the finest virtuoso woodwind soloists ever sampled. These are highly playable instruments soared with true emotion, effortless and equilibristic behavior".

The Bassoon Virtuoso is described as expressive, playable and lifelike. It 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. The arcs were recorded with both non-vibrato, medium and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant. In addition, the Basson features trills, runs, staccatissimo and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve sounds and natural click noises, etc.

The Bassoon Virtuoso requires the full retail version of Kontakt 4.2 or later. The instrument is currently available for the introductory price of $99 and goes to $139 on September 1st, 2013.
