8Dio has announced the release of Free Angels, updates to Adagio Violins and Adagio Cellos, and the upcoming Adagietto & Zeus Drums instrument libraries.
Hey there fellow sample connoisseur – and welcome to 8Dio’s annual 25 Days of Christmas tradition. We have a rather ambitious lineup this year comprised of new releases, free gifts, essential Adagio updates, artist interviews and a massive surprise.
We are kicking December off with no less then 4 major announcements.
New at 8Dio
- Free Angels – Partially created by 100+ sound designers and partially created in-house by 8DIO. A complimentary product added to ANY 8Dio purchase over 50$ made between December 3-25th 2013.
- Adagio Violins and Cellos 1.5 Free Update – A new three-layered multi-purpose legato system that just works. The system allows you to play with both slur/portamento, medium to fast legato without using key-switches. The design contains three unique legato types that are triggered based on your velocity (Emotional Slur Legato, Village Legato and Instinct Legato). The updates also contain overall fixes to the general legatos – a bunch of minor bug fixes and improved functionality with Apple Logic environment. The Adagio 1.5 updates for Violins and Cellos will be released mid-December and is free for all current Violin, Cello and Adagio Bundle owners.
- Adagietto and Zeus (coming in December) – Adagietto is a powerful, easy-to-use, full string ensemble set based on 8Dio’s deep-sampled and highly expressive Adagio String Series coming December 16th. Adagietto is the bread-and-butter of Adagio.
The Zeus Drum Kit is one of the most detailed sampled high-end drum kits ever done utilizing 8Dio’s new custom flow note technology.
