8DIO Drumstep Overview

8DIO EDM Drumstep VST is one of the most comprehensive production tools on the market for high-end Drumstep & Dubstep production. This punchy instrument is created for both producers, composers and DJs. The style is mainly focused on Drumstep, which is a mixture of Dubstep and modern Drum n’ Bass.


We created 20 different core kits, which covers all corners of the current Drumstep realm. We have hundreds of basses, leads, glitched vocal FX, punching drums mixed from both digital and acoustic content. Everything is perfectly tempo-synced to your host and everything is controllable directly from your keys, including pitch, live-triggered FX etc.


8DIO Drumstep is using a highly advanced, yet ultra intuitive layout that essentially allows you to control most things from you keyboard. The bottom part of the keyboard controls the pitch of the sounds. The mid part of the keyboard controls the sounds themselves. The upper part of the keyboard gives you real-time control over all the effects, including distortion, phaser, flanger, lofi, convolution reverb, delay, lowpass, hipass and several other effects.


In addition we also added a Talk-Talk FX to the modwheel – giving you an extreme amount of controls right at your finger tips. The entire library comes in open 44.1/24 Bit Format.


8DIO Drumstep also contains our hyper-flexible AI Randomizer, which essentially creates new, logical patches on the fly. All you have to do is click the randomizer button and KABOOM – you have a completely new patch with drums and synths at your disposal. The tool uses a layout logic, so drums, synths and vocals are always in the same place, which means you can use the randomizer over any existing groove to find new source of inspiration.
