8Dio Production 8Dioboe

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.

8Dioboe features

  • Hyper-Expressive Lyrical Oboe.
  • 3 Microphone Positions.
  • Expressive True Legato.
