8Dio Caisa Drum is a featured Instrument from our Studio Percussion Series and uses our advanced technique called, Groove Sampling™ that allows you to create hyper-realistic percussive grooves with a single touch of a key. Groove Sampling is a proprietary method developed by 8Dio and is currently patent pending. There is no going back after this.
The Caisa is a convex steel drum that is designed to be played with hands or short mallets and sonically resembles a Pantam or Steel Drum but with a more rounded tone.
The 8Dio Caisa Drum contains 7 unique articulations and 3 microphone positions all easy-accessed from our front-facing browser. The Caisa Drum was meticulously recorded with four different playing styles including mallets, sticks, brushes, fingers, and rolls. So imagine playing a unique Caisa with brushes or sticks, the ability to choose which type of mallet widens the usability of the library.
We’ve also included our dual-layered FX system. The first part is our front-face FX system that gives you control over dynamics, filters, pitch and micro-pitch, delay, bit-resolution, and our new textural convolution delay. The new textural delay allows you to take and use them as delay components, so the instrument will delay other sounds than just itself.
The Caisa Drum is featured from our Studio Exotic Percussion library which contains 5 deep-sampled percussion instruments including the Caisa Drum, Aluphone, Tubaphone, Sixxeen, and the Scaffaphone. It has always been our mantra to push sampling forward in regard to realism and playability. The Studio Percussion Series is the first series to utilize our proprietary Groove Sampling™ technology and we really think it is going to make compositions richer and easier to create.
