8Dio Productions has announced that its Adagio Basses Vol. 1 sample library for Kontakt is available to pre-order.
Adagio Basses is our fourth release in the Adagio Series – featuring both Ensemble (4), Divisi (2) and Solo Basses. The library contains 9 different types of legato, 25+ dynamic bowing types, 15 loures and gorgeous deep-sampled short notes.
The Basses have historically been the “forgotten” instrument when it comes to string sampling, due to its lower and less prominent register. We decided to take the opposite approach and record the instrument with depth, passion and lushness. The result is the most comprehensive sample library on the market in regards to emotional and realistic orchestral basses. We ♥ it and we think you will ♥ it too.
Adagio Basses Vol. 1 is available to pre-order at the introductory price of $149 USD until May 1st, 2013 (regular $199 USD). The library is scheduled for release on April 29th, 2013.
8Dio Productions has introduced 8Dioboe, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Produced by Colin O’Malley and Troels Folmann, the 8Dioboe is an evocative instrument based on the raw and emotional approaches to sampling that we’ve explored in our Adagio String series.
There are many woodwind instruments on the market today. Very few of them have the emotional realism to sit out in front of an orchestra and truly carry a composition forward. The 8Dioboe is exactly such an instrument. The recordings capture a world class player playing a word class instrument. The player is invested in every single note she plays. Oboes are notoriously hard to sample. A big part of this is due to the player’s tendency to overplay and “quack” the intervals in a relatively grueling session. In contrast, the legato of the 8Dioboe was sampled in a highly fluid manner with a natural flow into vibrato. The result is an instrument that is both nimble and lyrical.
Hyper-Expressive Lyrical Oboe.
3 Microphone Positions.
Expressive True Legato.
Sustains & Marcato.
Direct download on cloud server system.
Requires Full Retail Version of NI Kontakt 4.2+.
The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until April 15th, 2013 (regular $139 USD).

8Dio Productions has announced that its upcoming Adagio Violas Vol. 1 sample library is now available to pre-order.
The third installment of our highly acclaimed Adagio series is finally ready for pre-order. The Adagio Violas contain three main groups of Violas: Full Ensemble Violas (7), Divisi Violas (3) and Solo Viola (1).
All groups have been extensively sampled. The library is at around 20+ GB in its current stage and will be very similar in size to the Violins and Cellos. As always they were recorded in our signature church environment with a hand-selected group of great viola players from the San Francisco Bay Area.

8Dio Productions has announced the release of Wrenchenspiel, a custom instrument containing a large array of 31 deep-sampled wrenches.
The Wrenchenspiel contains 18 different core articulations, over 1.200 samples and is a highly versatile, tonal percussion instrument that can sound like anything from a Glockenspiel to Celeste, from traditional Rhodes to absolutely brutal mutilated music sound design.
In addition the library also contains a step-based sequencer (aka Wrenchenquencer/arp), live-triggered FX and our dual convolution reverbs containing both sound designed and more traditional hall based impulses.
The sound library is available for the introductory price of $59 USD until March 15th, 2013 (regular $79 USD).
