8Dio releases Studio Vocal Series: Jenifer for Kontakt

8Dio Studio Vocal Series: Jenifer

8Dio Productions has launched Studio Vocal Series: Jenifer, a new vocal library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

8Dio Studio Vocal Series Jenifer marks a new generation of solo vocal products with incredible playability, expression and realism. Jenifer was produced by Emmy Nominated Composer, Colin O’Malley and features the accomplished soprano, Jenifer Thigpen. Jenifer is known for her work with Disney’s “Voices of Liberty” and her extensive touring with “Women of Faith”. In addition she has done work with a large selection of artists, including Two Steps from Hell and many others.

Studio Vocal Series Jenifer was created with new legato techniques that are more fluent, expressive and playable. We intuitively programmed several legatos into velocity layers, so you can get more subtle and more nuanced expression depending on how hard you press the keys. It all works effortlessly without the need for additional controllers. The final result is a completely fluent experience that just works. In addition we also recorded phrases in specific keys and BPM.

You can easily change speed, dynamics, sample offset and pitch of any phrase and completely have it designed to match your composition. We also included a large assortment of performance based arcs that offers additional tools of expression to the deep-sampled legato and phrases.

Studio Vocal Series Jenifer also contains our new Chaos FX 3.0 system that offers you an extensively selection of custom convolutions from some of our preferred hall environments and more unique sound design type of convolutions.

The end-result is the most expressive solo vocals currently available on the market and is the first of several releases in the series.

The library is available for purchase for $149 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3 or later.

8Dio releases Agitato Grandiose Legato Bundle

8Dio has announced the release of the Agitato Grandiose Legato Bundle, a new instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring ensemble violins (11 players) and divisi violins (3 players).

8Dio Agitato Grandiose Legato

Produced by Academy Award, TEC and G.A.N.G Award Winning Composer, Troels Folmann and Emmy Nominated composer, Colin O’Malley. The 8Dio Agitato Expansion series is the third branch to our existing Adagietto and Adagio String Collections. The Agitato Expansion series addresses to most sought-after sting articulations, including Grandioso Soaring Legato, Hyper-Fast Legato, True Ostinato and Soaring Sordino. Agitato was recorded in the same large and lush church as our Adagio & Adagietto series.

Agitato Grandiose Legato is inspired by the soaring melodic styles of Williams and Mancini and designed as fast melodic leads for any string library of your choice.

Agitato Grandiose Legato bundle consists of 14 different types of legato, starting with our new beautiful and smooth sustain x-fade. We also included more gentle legatos (ex. gentle and gentle detache), however if you are looking for a traditional soaring Hollywood inspired sound – we recommend our two Mancini Legatos, which brings forward that gorgeous, intense molto vibrato. The bundle contains both Ensemble and Divisi Grandiose Legato. Fully compatible with the existing Adagio and Adagietto Strings Series, but also designed for full compatibility with any 3rd party string library.

Agitato Grandiose Legato contains a completely new legato system, which is more flexible then ever. You have full control over dynamics and expression, including the ability to link the two. In addition we have a new highly adaptive legato speed system, which really allows the legato to adapt to your compositional style and preference.

The library is available for purchase for $149 USD.

8Dio Guitar Steel String Strummer

8Dio Productions has released Guitar Steel String Strummer, a guitar instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Steel String Strummer contains over 4,500 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 different rhythm types utilizing 8DIO’s powerful x-legato technology, allowing the blending of any chord and rhythm at any time and giving an infinite amount of options. Steel String Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if the user triggers the same chord/rhythm multiple times they still get natural subtle variation.

Steel String Strummer contains all the classic chords (e.g. Major, Minor, Maj7, Min7, Dim7, Dom7) used in traditional song-writing, but also contains more elaborate chords (e.g. Maj7B5, Min79, Dom7#9, Sus2, Sus4, 11s Alt Bass and Add11Alt2).

The rhythm section is equally deep from traditional type of strum rhythms to more genre specific ones (e.g. country, fingered arped, muted chugs). In addition they also recorded muted strums of all rhythms, which gives additional options to design new types of rhythms.

Steel String Strummer also contains intelligent fret noises and velocity based end chords, which allows making a natural ending to a chord progression by playing hard on keyboard.

8DIO has also integrated live FX (e.g. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. Steel String Guitar comes in both 24 and 16-bit versions and has a full purge function (ability to decide which parts of library you want, to conserve RAM).

Guitar Steel String Strummer features

  • Deep-Sampled Steel String Strummer.
  • Direct download / Cloud Server System.
  • Product only available as download.
  • Core Specifications:
  • Deep-Sampled Steel String Strumming.
  • 4.500+ real chord and strum samples.
  • Round Robin (repetition) sampled.
  • 13 chords / 13 rhythms.
  • X-legato and intelligent fret noises.

The library is available for purchase for $179 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2 or higher.

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

8Dio has announced the release of the Ukulele Bundle, comprising the Ukulele Solo and Ukulele Strummer instrument libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

8Dio Ukulele Bundle

The Solo Ukulele contains over 2.200 samples and we recorded the Uku in great details, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises. In addition we also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play chords with natural true strum sounds. 8Dio Ukulele Solo comes with 15 core patches divided into Fingered, Thumber and Morphed categories. The fingered category was recorded with dedicated four-finger position for realistic sound for advanced playing styles (ex. arppegiations) – whereas the thumbed category has a slightly softer sound, which gives the Ukulele a somewhat softer, warmer character. The morphed category contains the Ukulele mixed with other instruments (ex. Grand Piano, Tonal Percussion and other modified instruments designed to match the character of the Ukulele.

Ukulele Strummer is the follow-up to our Ukulele Solo library. The Ukulele Strummer contains over 4.734 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 common rhythm types. All the chords and rhythms can seamlessly be blended using our x-legato technology. The X-legato system allows you to combine any chord and rhythm at any given time giving you an infinite amount of combinations. In addition the Ukulele 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 Ukulele Strummer also contains chords in perfect 5th – allowing you to shape virtually any chord by combining it with our Ukulele Solo library.

The Ukulele Solo and Ukulele Strummer both contains our new CHAOS FX 3.0 system, which contains a variety of additional FX controls, including macro controls, filter, EQ, bit-crusher, distortion, new stereo delay and two separate convolution reverbs, Transform and Reverb. Transform adds experimental convolutions to your arsenal and Reverb contains a collection of superior impulses in case you want more traditional reverb. Everything comes integrated – one click away from your mastery.

The bundle is available for purchase for $149 USD.
