Clarinet Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Far). The core of the Clarinet 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 Clarinet Virtuoso has an introductory price of $139 ($199 from 7th July, 2013).
The deep-sampled (+11.500 samples) Mandolin Strummer contains 13 different chord types and 18 common rhythm types. Mandolin Strummer uses new x-legato technology that allows the user to combine any chord and rhythm at any given time giving you an infinite amount of combinations. In addition the Mandolin Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times – you will get natural subtle variation. The Mandolin Strummer also contains a unique patch with motion picture inspired strums.
