Each instrument also has its own fully capable mixer with functions such as Solo, Mute, Output Routing, Volume and Panning all featured alongside our more advanced offerings, affording you the luxury to change the number of players (either from true recordings or mixed/overdubs) as well as the new Distance Control which seamlessly blends between an upfront, direct and dry signal to a wider and more spacious signal.

8Dio Intimate Studio Strings gives you direct access to dozens of advanced and unique playing styles and articulations, full host tempo sync (relevant articulations only), the ability to control your section size, the ability to control each section’s volume, routing, panning, and even distance/perspective in the stereo field.
