8Dio Shepard Tones is a sample library dedicated to the highly popular Shepard Tones. The library contains over 10GB of block-buster grade Shepards.
The Shepard Tones are divided into a variety of different categories, organic and orchestrally textured Shepards, and clean synth-based variations. We also created slow, medium, and fast-moving Shepards, so you can find the perfect one for the mood, texture and tempo of your composition. 8Dio Shepard Tones also contains unique rising Shepards that continues to rise (or fall) over a span of 6 octaves, while continuing to rise within itself.
The 3D-Based User Interface is the perfect complement to the Shepard Tones. A single click and your Shepards are reversed, giving the opposite effect of elements falling. Another click and the tempo-synced gate is activated, offering you the ability to BPM-sync and arpeggiate the Shepards.
8Dio Shepard Tones also contains a vast section of additional effects, including filters, filter-modulation, bit-crusher, distortion, and dual convolution reverb, including a variety of custom-designed, new, big reverb impulses particular for the library.

All Sorts of Shepards
8Dio Shepard Tones contains a deep selection of both Organic and Synthetic Shepards. The organic material is derived from our custom sample catalogue, and many were made from orchestral elements. The synthetic material was created with synths, offering you clean, tight synthetic Shepards. The hundreds of Shepards cover bass, medium, high, and ultra-high frequency ranges.
All Types of Music
Shepard Tones have become a widespread phenomenon in both soundtracks (ex. Hans Zimmer), EDM (ex. Swedish House Mafia), Video Games (ex. Mario Cart), Rock (ex. Pink Floyd), and many, many others. It is a powerful tool because it does not tie to any specific form of music, but augments and enhances anything that uses it.

8Dio Shepard Tones comes with a wealth of one-click effects. A single click and your Shepard is reversed, creating a downwards spiral of sound. Another click and the BPM-synced Gate Function is activated. The layout of 8Dio Shepard Tones offers you access to several Shepards at the same time with the Stack function.
