Steel String Guitar: Solo & Strummer

Welcome to the 8DIO Instant Guitar Series: a collection of high-end, deep-sampled electric instruments. This library contains both the Steel String Solo and Steel String 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 Steel String Guitar Solo is a passionate, deep-sampled, pristine-sounding, warm, vintage Steel String. 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. 8Dio Steel String Guitar comes with 18 core patches divided into natural, morphed, and muted categories.  The morphed category blends with Steel String Guitar with other instruments, such as Grand Piano, Steel String Guitar, Analog Synths, and more exotic instruments. 

The Steel String Strummer contains over 6,000 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 12 common rhythms. All the chords and rhythms can seamlessly be blended using our x-legato technology, giving you an infinite number of combinations. The Steel String Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times, you will get natural, subtle variation. We also recorded muted strums for all the rhythms.  



So Flexible

The Instant Steel String Guitar Solo is incredibly flexible, intuitive, and easy-to-use, so you can just sit down and play. All the main controls are available on the front of the interface. 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, it is all right there at your fingertips.

Instant Presets

The Instant Steel String Guitar Solo comes with 18 custom presets that are instantly accessible from the built-in browser. The fingered presets are subtle and beautiful. The picked presets have a more pointy and defined sound. The morphed presets blend the Steel String Guitar with a variety of custom instruments such as beautiful pianos, vintage analog synths, and more.

Instant Strumming

The Instant Steel String Guitar Strummer contains over 11,000 different real strums, sampled across all 12 keys with 13 different chord types and 12 different rhythms. It sounds completely real because the strums were recorded individually. Our magical X-Legato features allows you to free merge any chord and rhythm, and everything is synced to your host-tempo.
