The Solo Cello Designer is a massive collection of over 1,800 phrases. The intention of the library was to sample a completely realistic solo cello by creating an incredible collection of musical phrases. We programmed the library in a way that gives you maximum control over the phrases and allows you to sculpt 100% realistic solo cello performances. It was deliberately designed to support, augment, and in some cases replace existing solo cello libraries. Essentially, this library takes over where normal multi-samples (ex. legato, sustains) cannot perform. This is what we call deep phrase-sampling.
The Solo Cello Designer includes a variety of phrase sculpting tools, including pitch-control, time-stretching/compression, sample offset, effects, and convolution reverbs. The pitch-control is not affected by tempo, so by controlling pitch, time-stretching/compression and sample offset, you can adapt the phrase to match the pitch and tempo of any composition.
You can control the dynamics, attacks and releases of each sample, the EQ (high, mids and lows), Gates, and Filter. You can also control a variety of effects directly from the keyboard, including bit-resolution, delay, distortion, rotato and a beefy collection of custom convolution reverbs.
Important Note: The Solo Cello Designer is phrase-based. If you want multi-sampled cello, please check out Anthology or the Deep Solo Cello.

The Power of Phrases
8Dio Solo Cello Designer contains over 1,800 phrases that can be manipulated in an infinite number of ways. The idea is to give you an arsenal of advanced phrases that are impossible to achieve with traditional multi-samples. The Solo Cello Designer contains an unrivaled set of sculpting tools, including pitch-control, time-stretching/compression, sample offset, FX, and convolution reverbs.
The Solo Cello Designer contains a highly intuitive user interface designed to give you instant results. You can access hundreds of phrases which are divided by the name of the composer (ex. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, etc). You can control the Key/Pitch, Tempo, Dynamics, Attack, and Release. We also created sample offset tools on your pitch-bender and mod wheel.
Chaos Effects 3.0
Our new Chaos FX 3.0 Engine is perhaps the most extreme feature in Solo Cello Designer. The engine allows you to randomize over 1,500 sample parameters with one click, while also randomizing our new 8Dio FX System. So, both the sample content and the assigned FX will be randomized in one glorious cocktail. You can control precisely how much chaos you want!
