8Dio Aura Tonal Exotic Studio Percussion – for Kontakt VST-AU-AAX is used an 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.
Aura Tonal Exotic Studio Percussion contains 5 different instruments and 3 microphone positions that are all easy-accessed from our built-in browser. The instruments cover a wide range of auxiliary percussion (ex. Aluphone, Caisa, Scaffaphone, Sixxen & Tubaphone)
The majority of instruments in Aura Tonal Exotic Studio Percussion were also recorded with two different types of mallets, sticks and brushes. So imagine playing a unique Caisa with brushes or sticks. The ability to choose mallets widens the usability of the library, especially in regards to cinematic scoring.
Aura Tonal Exotic Studio Percussion contains 3 microphone positions (Close, Mid, Room) that each have a very distinct sound. We’ve also included a new 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. We’ve also included our new Chaos FX engine, which gives you a large control over things such as EQ, Distortion, Stereo-Delay and an additional convolution reverb.
It has always been our mantra to push sampling forward in regards to realism and playability. Aura Studio Exotic Percussion is the first of several to utilize our proprietary Groove Sampling™ method and we really think it is going to make compositions richer and easier to create.
