Welcome to the 8DIO Instant Guitar Series: a collection of high-end, deep-sampled electric instruments. This library contains both the Dobro Solo and Dobro Strummer, recorded with the same instrument and amplifier, so they are 100% compatible and designed to be used together. We also integrated our Chaos FX 3.2 (ex. Stereo Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Dual-Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches.
The Dobro Guitar Solo is a passionate, deep-sampled, pristine-sounding, true Americana Dobro. In addition to sustains and muted strings, we included hundreds of natural fret and release noises, as well as natural strum samples, so you can play everything in a strummed fashion. The 8Dio Dobro Solo comes with 18 core patches divided into natural, morphed, and synthesized categories. The morphed category blends with Dobro Guitar with other instruments, such as Grand Piano, Steel String Guitar, Analog Synths, and more exotic instruments.
The Dobro Strummer contains over 8,500 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 18 common rhythms. All the chords and rhythms can seamlessly be blended using our x-legato technology, giving you an infinite number of combinations. Electric Guitar Strummer is also a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times, you will get natural, subtle variation.
