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).

The instrument contains 38 different core banks of hybrid scoring tools from hybrid rhythms to transforming metals, motion picture boom drones to sick, sick mega-horns, cinematic synths to impacts, phat downers to wild risers, crescendo and decrescendo FX, screaming distortions etc.
Hybrid Tools Vol. 2 is the next evolution in contemporary musical sound design – a tool created for both composers and sound designers. The tool is specifically designed to give you that hybrid/modern sound to your compositions. The instrument contains a variety of core banks from the biggest mega-horns ever made to our new psychological signature sounds that just burns in your brainstem. We created some insanely big percussive rolls, which are awesome for transitions and a cool assortment of those trendy Dubstep Trailer FX.
8Dio Productions has announced the release the Steel String Guitar sample library in the Natural Acoustic Series, a studio collection of high-end deep-sampled acoustic instruments.
Steel String Guitar is a deep-sampled (3.000 samples) pristine sounding Dreadnought. We recorded both fingered- and picked playing styles of the guitar, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises.
In addition we also created 18 morphed patches which blends the guitar with a variety of other instruments (including Double Bass, Bulbul Tarang, Plucked Grand Piano, Regular Grand Piano, Synths etc). The diversity of the morphed patches widens the sonic range of the guitar, so you make it sound like anything from a modified acoustic bass to a mandolin/luther, from a morphed guitar-piano to a more ethnic sound guitar with resonators.
We also integrated live FX (ex. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. We also integrated a dual convolution reverb containing deep sets of both FX and normal based set of convolutions.
The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $139 USD until February 1st, 2013 (regular $179 USD).
