Exotic, Mystical Percussion

The Caisa is a convex steel drum that is designed to be played with hands or short mallets and sonically resembles a Pantam or Steel Drum but with a more rounded tone. 

The 8Dio Caisa Drum contains 7 unique articulations and 3 microphone positions all easy-accessed from our front-facing browser. The Caisa Drum was meticulously recorded with four different playing styles including mallets, sticks, brushes, fingers, and rolls. So imagine playing a unique Caisa with brushes or sticks, the ability to choose which type of mallet widens the usability of the library. 

We’ve also included our dual-layered FX system. The first part is our front-face FX system that gives you control over dynamics, filters, pitch and micro-pitch, delay, bit-resolution, and our new textural convolution delay. The new textural delay allows you to take and use them as delay components, so the instrument will delay other sounds than just itself. 

The Caisa Drum is featured from our Studio Exotic Percussion library which contains 5 deep-sampled percussion instruments including the Caisa Drum, Aluphone, Tubaphone, Sixxeen, and the Scaffaphone. It has always been our mantra to push forward in sample realism and playability. The Studio Percussion Series is the first series to utilize our proprietary Groove Sampling™ technology and we really think it is going to make compositions richer and easier to create. 

Note: This library is also included with Studio Percussion Exotic 





The New Groove Sampling™

The core of the 8Dio Caisa Drum is our new, patent-pending Groove Sampling techniques™. The Caisa Drum comes with traditional multi-samples in addition to groove samples, so you can play and mix them side by side. The Groove Samples can be controlled on your modwheel or via our new Mod-Sequencer. You will never go back after trying them!
