8Dio Adagio Basses

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.
