8Dio Vibraphone overview

8Dio Vibraphone is a featured Instrument from our Studio Percussion Series and uses our advanced technique ‘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.

The Vibraphone consists of rows of metal bars that are struck with mallets to produce a metallic yet rounded and warm sound in its lower registers and a much brighter sound in its upper registers. The 8Dio Vibraphone contains 12 unique articulations including different types of mallets, brushes as well as bowed playing styles. The different playing techniques give the library incredible versatility with the warmer mallets, more tinny brushes, and drawn out bowed notes. The 12 Articulations and 3 microphone positions (Close, Mid & Far) are all easy-accessed from our front-facing browser. The Vibraphone was meticulously recorded with six different playing styles, including two different mallets, brushes, bowed, and two separate rolls. 

The Vibraphone is featured from our Studio Orchestral Percussion library, which contains 6 deep-sampled percussion instruments including the Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Crotales & Tubular Bells. 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 within the Studio Percussion Orchestral.

New Groove Sampling ™ Technique

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

Choose Your Mallets

8Dio Vibraphone takes the concept of deep-sampling to the next level. We recorded the instrument with two different mallets. A soft/felt mallet and a harder/firmer type of mallet – bringing our very different timbres of the instruments. In addition, we also recorded the vibraphone with brush mallets and even bowed them, so you can create strange sustained sounds with the percussion instruments. Great for musical sound design.

Built-In Browser

The 8Dio Vibraphone comes with a custom-designed built-in browser. The browser offers you access to any articulation with a single click. All the six instruments in this collection are designed this way. The idea is to give you immediate access to anything you want with a single mouse click. We want to shorten the distance between your thought to your creation. One-click and you are set.

New Front-Faced FX and Chaos FX

The 8Dio Vibraphone 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.

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.
