Welcome to the 8DIO Instant Guitar Series: a collection of high-end, deep-sampled electric instruments. This library contains both the Ukulele Solo and Ukulele 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 Solo Ukulele contains over 2,200 samples, including hundreds of natural fret and release sounds. The 8Dio Ukulele Solo comes with 15 core patches divided into Fingered, Thumbed, and Morphed categories. The fingered category was recorded with a dedicated four-finger position for realistic sound, allowing for advanced playing styles (ex. arpeggios), whereas the thumbed category has a slightly softer sound. The morphed category contains the Ukulele mixed with other instruments (ex. Grand Piano, Tonal Percussion, and more), designed to match the character of the Ukulele.
The Ukulele Strummer contains over 4,700 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 common rhythms. All the chords and rhythms can seamlessly be blended using our x-legato technology, giving you an infinite number of combinations. The Ukulele 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. The Ukulele Strummer also contains chords in perfect 5ths, allowing you to shape virtually any chord by combining it with our Ukulele Solo library.

The Instant Ukulele 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.
The Ukulele Solo comes with 15 custom presets that are instantly accessible from the built-in browser. The fingered presets contain the most common playing style (finger) for Ukulele. The Thumbed category contains presets exclusive played with a thumb motion. The morphed category contains the Ukulele mixed with custom instruments and vintage analog synths.
The Instant Ukulele Strummer contains over 6,000 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.
