Default 8Dio Xmas - December 25: "Xmas Freebie: Deep Sampled Glass Marimba (+2.000 samples)"

8Dio Xmas - December 3rd: "Rolfe Kent"

Ladies and Gentlemen,

8Dio has launched its annual Christmas Campaign and there will be something fresh coming every day, including our most substantial release to date. We hope you will join us on this venture - we promise you will never forget what is about to happen.

But let's get things started with this in-depth interview with composer, Rolfe Kent.

Cheers!

Default 8Dio Xmas - December 4th: "Wish N' Win"

We wantz your brains! Tell us what dream instrument you would like us to create or sample … don’t think about conventional stuff like drum kits, basses or pianos … keep it fresh. We will be selecting a handful of the best suggestions and create a poll towards the end, so you guys can be the ultimate deciders. The winner (or winners) will be announced on December 25th and receive their suggested library for free. Please no deep-sampling toilet lids … been there – done that. Keep it as musical as possible.


Go here and make your suggestion:

Good luck!

Default 8Dio Xmas - December 5th: "Music Made with Microwaves Teaser"

Check out this teaser trailer for our upcoming Christmas experiment: “Music Made with Microwaves” – released later this month.

The microwave is truly an under appreciated instrument. A a delicate mixture of tinfoil, quail eggs, Yoda marshmallow, bag free’d popcorn and gummi bears truly makes it sing … or buzz rather.

Default 8Dio Xmas - December 15th: "Rhythmic Aura 2 Released"

Rhythmic Aura Vol. 2: "Synthetic" has been released.

Rhythmic Aura Vol. 2 “Synthetic” is a highly intuitive, yet advanced scoring tool designed to create new compositions or augment your existing compositions.

This volume is a follow-up to our popular Rhythmic Aura Vol. 1 “Acoustic” - both volumes created by Academy Award Winning composer, Troels Folmann. Rhythmic Aura 2 consists of over 450 synth-based arpeggiations made with analog and virtual analog synths. The library contains 4 different source categories of sounds that each cover a different spectrum of your composition. The categories span from bass to mid to high pitched auras and a comprehensive selection of arp-based ambiences.

The entire library is tune based and keyswitches allows you to sculpt the aura to the key of your compositions, while other keyswitches allows you to trigger FX (ex. delay, filter, lofi, stereo field etc). Rhythmic Aura allows you to create compositions from scratch, but it can also be used as an underscoring tool allowing composers to quickly “dress” their compositions to perfection.

Introduction Price $199 (goes $249 on 1/1/2012)

Default 8Dio Xmas - December 20th: "Couple of Adagio Tech Demos"

A couple of quickly made tech demos.

The first demo demonstrates our Ensemble Expressive Legato, Ensemble Loure (connected notes) and our Solo Violin Legato + Solo Violin Phrases from the Bonus Toolkit. The second demo demonstrates our divisi Lost legato and our divisi dynamic bowing. The divisi recordings were made completely separate from the Ensemble and Solo. This is the real deal with sweet intimate vibrato surrounded by the lush/airy church we recorded in. More coming soon.

Ps. I encourage you to download the files. Soundcloud's compression is not always the best on classical material, especially not when its full of air/reflection.

Default 8Dio Xmas - December 23rd: "2 New Adagio Demos: Flow & Burn"

Two new adagio demos posted: Flow & Burn.

New Adagio demo: "Flow" by Colin O'Malley. This gorgeous demo takes you through a journey of Adagio articulations such as dynamic bowings, lost legato with rr, feathered spics, FF expressive legato etc. The demo: "Burn" displays some of the more forte based articulations of Adagio, including downtuned violins (which gives a cello like sound), mixed spiccato notes, forte marcato, expressive sordino legato and so forth.
