Studio Vintage Series: Studio Clavinet overview

8Dio Studio Vintage Series represents the most comprehensively deep-sampled collection of vintage keyboards.

The illustrious Clavinet is no stranger to modern music and indeed sampling. We here at 8Dio took this iconic instrument and sampled it in such detail that it will never need to be sampled again. 84,900 samples to be exact. The Studio Clavinet is similar to a piano in appearance and performance, but it’s sound is more indicative of a rich and powerful electric guitar. This is partly down to the size, positioning and length of the strings and bridge used. As well as the use of 2 individual pick ups, which can be solo’d, combined, and inverted. All of which has been meticulously sampled and crafted as the 8Dio Studio Clavinet.

The Studio Clavinet was carefully recorded & processed at 24bit / 96k at our British Studio through an extremely special custom Neve desk before being carefully down sampled to 48k for ease of streaming.

The sustain samples were captured with all available pick up options and at multiple dynamics, allowing you to customise the sound in incredible detail. Additionally we sampled muted & staccato notes (w/round robin) so you have the attack for faster passages & the depth and emotion to unleash your inner funk.

The Studio Clavinet also includes full control over velocity response, resonance and release triggers, pedal volume, analog noise control and full ADSR controls. 8Dio Studio Vintage Series Clavinet is best described as the most intricately sampled Clavinet to date. From biting leads to soft melodic lines, the 8Dio Studio Clavinet truly knows how to bring the funk.

It will never need to be sampled again.

Deep Sampling

The Vintage Studio Clavinet contains over 84,900 samples and a gorgeous fully 3D rendered interface. Everything was lovingly recorded at a incredibly well known British Studio through custom NEVE Consoles and offers you the most iconic sounds in existence. Whether you want the best studio microphones (ex. Neumann u87, Cole, Neve Ribbon Mics). The best reverbs (ex. Bricasti M7 or TC 6000) The best amplifiers or the best D.I and Tape signal paths. It is all there.

Deep Options

What sets the Studio Clavinet apart from competitors is not just the great recordings, programming or stunning lay-out. But it is also the wealth of features – allowing you to dial in precisely the sound you want. Whether it’s controlling the dynamic feel of the piano with a single click, the resonance, the Pick Up Choice, the phase relationship, ADSR or even the sounds of your fingers touching the keys. No engineering degree required. It all just makes sense.

Superior Reverbs

We sampled the Studio Clavinet through two of the best studio reverbs in the world (TC6000 and Bricasti), so you get access to the sweetest sound of all. The reverbs can be activated with a single click and gives you instant access and control over the two reverbs that have defined studio reverbs more than anything else. You can control both pan, spread and volume of each reverbs. No more convolution. We literally sampled the Vintage Studio Clavinet through them using a pristine signal path designed by some of the worlds best engineers.

World-Class Microphones

The Studio Clavinet gives you access to the best studio microphones, including Neumann u87’s & KM 184’s. Neve SE Ribbons, Royers, AKG 414’s all pointing to 2 vintage and pristine amplifiers with a sweet mixed microphone position made from them all. So in essence you have multiple microphone positions, including DI Clean, DI Crush and DI Warm.. Engineering doesn’t get finer than this, allowing you to literally dial in precisely what you want with a few simple clicks.

Chaos FX

The Studio Clavinet contains our Chaos FX system, which allows you to virtually do anything you desire to the Clavinet. Whether its modulation, precision dial EQ, bit-crush or distort, stereo-delay or mess around with dual convolution reverbs. We also added our latest convolution, which allows you create Textural Convolution Delays on top of the existing stereo-delay and convolution reverb.
