8Dio Studio Percussion Orchestral

Deep-sampling is a sampling method Troels invented many years ago. The idea was to sample instruments in such great detail – and with so many options – that we never had to record them again. A win-win for both you and us.

Studio Percussion Orchestral is exactly that. The most comprehensive collection of deep-sampled tonal percussion instruments ever created. First of all we hand-picked all the instruments (Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Crotales and Tubular Bells) and found the best models available.

Secondly we actually recorded them all with two different types of mallets (Soft/Felt and Harder/Wooden). We also recorded all of them with brushes and in most cases, we also bowed them, so you virtually have every type of mallet choice at your finger-tips. We designed a custom user-interface. So easy!

But equally important we applied our Groove Sampling™ method to the library. This means that you do not only have all the multi-samples you’ve come to expect, but also an entirely different sample set of Groove Samples – allowing you to create completely life-like percussion. You have to see it to believe it.

Long story short. Studio Percussion Orchestral is a culmination of over a years work. The library contains over 23.000 samples that have been meticously edited and programmed for a superior and intuitive sample experience.
