8Dio launches The New Epic Frame Drum Ensemble for Kontakt

8Dio The New Epic Frame Drum Ensemble

The New Epic Frame Drum Ensemble by 8Dio Productions is a new remastered, redesigned, and reprogrammed version of the percussion instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The New Epic Frame Drum Ensemble is the most comprehensive and deep-sampled collection of large-scale Epic Framedrum Ensembles on the market. The library is a completely remastered, redesigned and reprogrammed edition of our original Epic Framedrum Ensemble. The New Epic Framedrum Ensemble contains over 2.500 samples, ensemble and solo frame drums, more then 1000 ensemble loops, built-in articulation browser, internal step-sequencer, front-face FX, textural convolutions and our newest 3.4 Chaos Engine.

The New Epic Framedrum Ensemble contains deep sampled Irish Bodhrán drums, North African Tar drums, Egyptian Riqs, Persian Dafs and North American tribal drums. We captured them in a large A-frame chapel for an authentic, naturally massive sound that no artificial algorithmic or convolution reverb can truly simulate. We recorded them in small chamber (divisi) sections and full ensemble groupings and covering both traditional and expanded playing styles and articulations.

This library is ideal for powerful epic scoring and any composition that calls for massive sounding percussion. We also captured a huge bonus collection of +1.100 BPM-based performance loops (80-140 BPM). The loops include automatic tempo-syncing functionality that allows them to be matched to a fairly wide range of custom project tempos. This library is designed to work with other of frame drum library, solo frame drums, which is a deep-sampled assortments of solo frame drums.

The sample library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $79 USD until June 1st, 2016 (regular $129 USD).
