About 8Dio Productions:

We are the largest independent publisher of deep-sampled music instruments in the world.  The odds are that you have heard our instruments in your favorite Blockbuster movie, TV-show, Game or Top-40 production.  But our accolades is not what makes us cool.  Our pride is in constantly pushing the boundaries of music and instruments.  We have sampled the largest symphony orchestra and choirs ever sampled.  We have two revolutionary Prophet X/XL Analog Hardware Synths with Sequential.  But most importantly we have instruments made with heart, soul and love.  No more boring samples.

We don’t believe in your typical corporate hierarchy.  We never take meetings.  We believe the best argument should win – regardless of who makes it.
