Aged to Perfection

Welcome to 8Dio Advanced Guitar Series: Mandolin – An eccentric gem with thousands of possibilities. Multiple articulations, sound effects, artifacts, legato – it’s all here.

We deep-sampled a 200-year-old Italian Mandolin in pristine condition for this Library. Sustains, Tremolos, Mutes and Harmonics offer the user the versatility of this unique instrument.

At the heart of this extraordinary library is two parallel sample engines. One engine designed for Solo Mandolin and a second engine designed for Strum Mandolin. The idea is to let the engines do the work, while you do the driving. The Solo Engine is based on 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.
