Free You overview

Free You is a new-generation art software instrument created in collaboration with our talented community. Free You was partially created by 200+ sound designers and partially created in-house by 8DIO. The instrument is best described as a deeply personal and unique textural composition tool. You can literally touch and feel the library at times – from the brightest heavens to the darkest of nightmares.

Free You contains over 4.5GB of heavenly sound designs divided into three core sound categories, including Tonal Textural Melodic Tools, BPM-Synced Rhythmic Pads and a unique Stuttery Rhythms. The Tonal Textural Tools are designed to add sustained and plucked textures to your music. The Rhythmic Pads are fantastic for a momentum and pulse – propelling the music to new places. The library contains over 300 organized presets – that each contains 3 unique sound layers that you can freely sculpt between. Free You contains 26 core banks that each contain 12 different patches. You can move and choose patches in real-time, since they all come pre-loaded.

Free You is not a conventional sample library. We would rather call it a piece of art software – liberated from normal and orthodox conventions of how things should be. It is beautiful, wild and free, yet completely organized easy to use. It is a library that is designed to surprise you and we added a variety of randomization features that can bring you into another dimension with a single click.

Free You is a follow-up to our popular Free Angels and Free Radicals libraries, which were done in collaboration with our awesome community of users. The idea with our Free You Project was to create the most personal collection of memorable sounds. All we asked was that people recorded/created the 5 most important sounds in their life. The 5 sounds that stood closest to their heart. We took all the contributions and put them into one samples library. We edited, programmed, designed and distributed the entire collection and also added a large chunk of personal materials to it. No restrictions, no rules no limits.

Internal Browser

Free You comes with a built-in browser environment, so no more loading files for everything you want to try. You have everything right at your finger tips and the ability to freely switch between patches in real-time. Free You comes with over 300 presets – that each contains three unique sound layers that works like microphone positions. The new user interface allows you to virtually control everything from one single page. Whether it is pan, envelopes, stereo-width, transient shapes or filters, gates, pitch, delays, compression or textural convolutions.

Chaos and Textural Convolutions

Free You also contains a larges et Textural Convolution Delays, which 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 and we even set it up, so you can mix textural convolutions with our custom stereo-delay.

Heavenly Effects

Free You Cntains a unique real-time effects section, which includes Delay, Screamer Cabinet Modeling, Bit Crusher/LOFI, Distortion Fuzz, Rotator and no less then two different convolution reverbs. One containing a highly unique set of sound designed convolutions, which is great to create additional texture to the sound. And a second one containing more traditional convolution impulses from our private convolution catalogue. All the effects can be triggered in real-time via keyswitches, so you can layer them when you want to.

New Front-Faced FX and Chaos 3.4 FX

Free You 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.
