8Dio Claire Bassoon Virtuoso

8Dio has announced the release of Claire Bassoon Virtuoso, a virtual bassoon instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Our Bassoon Virtuoso is the most expressive, playable and lifelike Bassoon ever sampled. The Bassoon Virtuoso was recorded in a symphonic hall and contains three microphone positions (Close, Decca, Far).

The core of the Bassoon is its highly advanced legato system, which contains both slow and fast legato. The legato system allows you to play legato with passionate arcs, sustains, staccatissimo, expressive marcatos etc. We recorded arcs with both non-vibrato, medium and strong vibrato, so you can freely sculpt your performance from the subtle to vibrant.

In addition we also added trills, runs, staccatissimo and even non-tonal effects like breaths, valve sounds and natural click noises etc.

Claire Bassoon Virtuoso is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until September 1st, 2013 (regular $139 USD).
