8Dio Intimate Studio Brass marks the latest chapter in 8Dio’s pro-grade line of studio orchestral instruments, featuring advanced techniques to achieve a modern, playable and fully customizable studio sound.
With over 140 hours of session material recorded at Scotland’s Premiere Recording Studio – Gorbals Sound, Intimate Studio Brass utilizes the best in modern recording and isolation technologies. True isolation means we were able to capture all four players (Trumpet 1, Trumpet 2, Trombone, and Bass Trombone) simultaneously, ensuring that all articulations seamlessly blend between each player, allowing you to mix, match, and create your very own sound.
For this collection of instruments, we experimented with both the somber, softer side of brass as well as the eccentric and unconventional effects found in many pop, swing and jazz productions. While not large in numbers, the unique properties of tight, dry and close studio brass are essential for composing in these styles as well as many other modern compositions.
Each instrument features its own fully functional mixer, allowing you to fine tune the sound and positioning of your custom ensemble. Blend each instrument to perfection with functions such as Routing, Volume, Panning, and even Positioning with the brand new Distance Control which seamlessly blends between an upfront direct signal and a more spacious and ambient position.
8Dio Intimate Studio Brass gives you direct access to over 45 advanced and unique articulations, allowing you to create, balance and customize your articulation matrix. Save your favorite configurations and create a custom collection of playing styles that define your sound.
As well as traditional articulations we also included a range of unique muted and sound effect based sound-sets utilizing varying mute types and techniques allowing you to add interest and flair to your next composition.
