8Dio Advanced Guitar Series: “Charango” is a unique jewel with thousands of possibilities. Multiple articulations, sound effects, artifacts, legato – it’s all right at your fingertips, and you can play with it to get the most realistic results.
At the heart of this extraordinary library is two parallel sample engines. One engine designed for Solo Guitar and a second engine designed for Strum Guitar. The idea is to let the engines do the work, while you do the driving. The Solo Engine is based around a variety of new recording techniques, including Hammer-On Legato techniques, X-Noises, Release Controls etc. The combination of techniques offers you the opportunity to play fast and acrobatic solos without compromising the sound.
The Strum Engine is also using a variety of new sampling techniques. Including recording both up and down strokes for each string of the guitar, muted notes, treble and bass strums etc.
You can literally create any rhythm and any chord you want. The Strum Engine is designed as a step-based sequencer and is incredibly easy and intuitive to use.
The end-result is the ultimate sample design for 100% authentically sounding guitars. Whether you want to play a fast acrobatic solo or create an advanced strum pattern – you can do it all.

Intuitive and Advanced
The Advanced Guitar Series Charango is incredibly flexible, intuitive, and easy-to-use. You can literally just sit down and play it. Whether you want to control the fret noises of fingers moving across strings, adjust the volume of fingers letting go of the strings, or add real-time strums to chords using our advanced strumming engine, it is all right there at your fingertips.
The Charango Solo Engine gives you a completely life-like instrument right at your fingertips. You can choose between non-vibrato sustains, vibrato sustains, muted, and harmonic articulations. The engine also gives you control over elements such as release trigger tails, x-noise fret artifacts, and control of the vibrato intensity.
The Charango Strum Engine gives you full control over all aspects of strumming. You have control over the chord, swing, speed, rate, and steps. The strum sequencer allows you to create virtually any rhythm with any chord in any time-signature. It also contains a strum pattern library and the ability to load/save specific patterns you’ve created.
