Instant Mandolin Guitar Bundle overview

Welcome to 8DIO Instant Guitar Series – a studio collection of high-end deep-sampled electric instruments. This library contains both Mandolin Guitar Solo and Mandolin Guitar Strummer – allowing you to play completely realistic Mandolin guitar. The Solo and Strummer editions were recorded with the same instrument and amplifier, so they are 100% compatible and designed to be used together.

8Dio Mandolin Guitar Solo VST is a passionate, deep-sampled pristine sounding warm, vintage Mandolin. We recorded the Mandolin Guitar VST in great detail with both sustains and muted strings. We included hundreds of natural fret and release noises. In addition we also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play everything in a strummed fashion. 8Dio Mandolin Guitar comes with 15 core patches divided into natural, morphed and muted categories.  The morphed category blends with Mandolin Guitar with other instruments (ex. Grand Piano, Steel String Guitar, Analog Synths and more exotic type of instruments.

The Mandolin Strummer contains over 11.500 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 18 common rhythm types. All the chords and rhythms can seamlessly be blended using our x-legato technology. The X-legato system allows you to combine any chord and rhythm at any given time giving you an infinite amount of combinations. In addition the Mandolin Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times – you will get natural subtle variation. The Mandolin Strummer also contains a unique patch with motion picture inspired strums.Mandolin Strummer contains all the classic chords (ex. Major, Minor, Maj7, Min7, Dim7, 7 ) used in traditional songwriting, but also contains more elaborate chords (ex. Maj7B5, 13, Aug, Sus2, Sus4, 11, 7-5). The rhythm section is equally deep from traditional type of strum rhythms to more genre specific ones (ex. country, fingered arped, muted chugs). In addition we also recorded muted strums of all rhythms, which gives additional options to design new types of rhythms. Mandolin Strummer also contains intelligent fret noises and velocity based end chords, which allows you to make a natural ending to a chord progression by playing hard on keyboard.

We also integrated our Chaos FX 3.2 (ex. Stereo Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Dual-Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. We also integrated a dual convolution reverb containing deep sets of both FX and normal based set of convolutions.

Instantly Playable

The Mandolin Guitar Solo is incredibly flexible, intuitive and easy-to-use. You can literally just sit down and play it. All the main controls are available on the front of the interface. So whether you want to control the fret noises of fingers moving across strings, adjust the volume of fingers letting go of the strings, adding real-time strums to chords. It is all right there at your fingertips

Instant Presets

The Mandolin Guitar Solo comes with 21 custom presets that are instantly accessible from the built-in browser environment. The presets come in three main categories, including Natural, Tenor and Piccolo Mandolins. The natural presets contain both dry and web variations of Mandolins. The Tenor has a darker color and more abstract preset variations of a larger Mandolin. The Piccolo Mandolin has a tighter sound and also additional abstract and morphed presets

Instant Strumming

The Mandolin Guitar Strummer contains over 11.000 different real strums – sampled across all 12 keys with 13 different chord types and 18 different rhythm types. It sounds completely real – because it the strums were recorded individually. Our magical X-Legato features allows you to free merge any chord and rhythm at any time you want. Oh – and did we mention everything is synced to your host-tempo? We even added additional Motion Picture Strums to this library

Instant Effects

The Instant Mandolin libraries also come with a gorgeous set of built-in effects. We added Delay, Amp/Screamer Emulations, Lo-Fi (Bit-Crusher), Fuzz, Rotator and two different types of convolution reverbs. The first convolution reverb contains a variety of custom natural space we’ve recorded over time. This includes some of our favorite recording environments in churches and cathedrals. The second convolution reverb contains a large selection of more experimental convolution shots – great if you want to sound design your Mandolins.
