The guys from 8Dio got in touch today to tell us about their new library, Studio Percussion Orchestra.
According to the company, it’s “the most comprehensive collection of deep-sampled tonal percussion instruments ever created. First of all we hand-picked all the instruments (Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Crotales and Tubular Bells) and found the best models available.
Secondly, we actually recorded them all with two different types of mallets (Soft/Felt and Harder/Wooden). We also recorded all of them with brushes and in most cases, we also bowed them, so you virtually have every type of mallet choice at your finger-tips. We designed a custom user-interface.
But equally important we applied our Groove Sampling™ method to the library. This means that you do not only have all the multi-samples you’ve come to expect, but also an entirely different sample set of Groove Samples – allowing you to create completely life-like percussion. You have to see it to believe it.”
Price and Availability
The library is currently on introduction sale $149 (goes $249 on February 15th).
Check out the website and peruse the demos, the video(s) and judge for yourself.
