The 8Dio Vibraphone is a featured Instrument from our Studio Percussion Series and uses our proprietary, advanced ‘Groove Sampling™’ technique, that allows you to create hyper-realistic percussive grooves with a single touch of a key.
The Vibraphone is made of rows of metal bars that are struck with mallets to produce a metallic, yet rounded and warm sound in its lower registers, and a much brighter sound in its upper registers. The 8Dio Vibraphone contains 12 unique articulations including different types of mallets and brushes, as well as bowed playing styles. The different playing techniques give the library incredible versatility with warm mallets, tinny brushes, and drawn-out bowed notes. The 12 Articulations and 3 microphone positions (Close, Mid & Far) are all easily accessible from our front-facing browser.
The Vibraphone is included in our Studio Orchestral Percussion library, which contains 6 deep-sampled percussion instruments: Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Crotales, and Tubular Bells. It has always been our mantra to push sampling forward regarding realism and playability.

Choose Your Mallets
The Vibraphone takes the concept of deep-sampling to the next level. We recorded it with a soft/felt mallet and a harder mallet, bringing our very different timbres of the instrument. We also recorded the vibraphone with brushes and even bowed it, so you can create unique sounds!
Internal Browser and Textural Convolution
The Vibraphone comes with a custom-designed browser, offering you immediate access to all the included articulations and front-facing effects with a single click. We want to simplify the journey from your first thoughts to your final creation. One-click and you are set.
