8Dio Caisa Drum overview

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.

Note: This library is also included With Studio Percussion Exotic

New Groove Sampling™

The core of 8Dio Caisa Drum revolves around our new and patent-pending Groove Sampling techniques™. Groove Sampling allows you to play with ultra-realistic sound and precision. The Caisa comes with traditional multi-samples and new groove samples, so you can play and mix them side by side. The Groove Samples can either be controlled on your modwheel or via our new Mod-Sequencer. You will never go back after trying them.

Internal Browser

The Caisa comes with a custom-designed built-in browser. The browser offers you immediate access to all of the included articulations and front-facing effects with a single click. Each instrument from our Studio Percussion Series is designed this way. Giving you immediate access to anything you want with a few simple mouse clicks. We want to simplify the journey from your first thoughts to your final creation. One-click and you are set.

Textural Convolution Delay

Textural Convolution Delay is a new way of using convolution to create textural delays. The idea is to use non-conventional convolution impulses to augment the existing sound. So when the instrument delays – you will not just get a normal delay of the instrument, but also get the delay and texture of the convolution. This concept is called Textural Convolutions.

New Front-Faced FX and Chaos 3.4 FX

Aura Tonal Exotic Studio Percussion contains two parallel FX systems. The first one is our new Front-Faced FX, which allows you to control the most fundamental effects from the front panel (ex. Dynamics, Filters, Pitch, Delay, Crusher and our new Textural Delay). You can also go deeper with our new Chaos FX system, which includes Step-Based Filtering, EQ, Bit-Crusher, Distortion, Dual Stereo-Delay and an additional convolution system on top of our custom Textural Convolution Delays.
