Dobro Solo VST-AU-AAX – Kontakt Instruments overview

Dobro Solo

Welcome to 8DIO Natural Acoustic Series – a studio collection of high-end deep-sampled acoustic instruments.


8Dio Dobro Solo VST is a passionate, deep-sampled (+2.100 samples) pristine sounding American Dobro. We recorded the Dobro Solo VST in great detail, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises, real note bends up/down. In addition we also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play everything in a strummed fashion. 8Dio Dobro comes with 18 core patches divided into natural, morphed and synthetic categories. The natural category contains things natural dobro, tenor and piccolo dobro – whereas the morphed category contains the Dobro mixed with other instruments (ex. Grand Piano, Steel String Guitar, Mandolin and more exotic type of instruments. The synthetic category contains the Dobro mixed with different type of synths.


We also integrated live FX (ex. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. We also integrated a dual convolution reverb containing deep sets of both FX and normal based set of convolutions.
