49 Tonal Instruments in the Air

8Dio Studio Suspended Percussion is a collection of 49 new, deep-sampled instruments with a twist! All the instruments were recorded in suspension. By letting the instruments hang in free air, they can vibrate fully. Even heavy objects like Concrete Bricks, Large Glass Plates, and Gas Canister will fully vibrate and become much more musical. We recorded every instrument with various (ex. Brushed, Felt, Traditional, Hand) and everything was recorded both as multi-samples and with our new, patented Groove-Sampling method. 

 Groove Samples allows you to play the instruments in ways you cannot with traditional multi-samples, with completely fluent and natural sound. They were recorded at various tempos and will sync with your host. There is really nothing like them around and this patent pending method is proprietary to 8Dio’s sample collections. 

We also recorded everything through an extensive microphone array, resulting in three core microphone positions (Close, Middle, and Room). 

Studio Suspended Percussion is designed around playability and ease-of-use. All articulations and playing styles are easily accessible from our built-in browser system and just a single click away. 

With our dual-layer effects, you have direct access to a trance gate, filters, pitch, delay, compression, and our textural convolution delay. We have also included our new Chaos FX engine, which gives you control over things such as EQ, Phasing, distortion, stereo delay, and an additional convolution reverb. 



The New Groove Sampling™

The core of Studio Suspended Percussion is our new, patent-pending Groove Sampling techniques™. The library comes with traditional multi-samples in addition to groove samples, so you can play and mix them side by side. The Groove Samples can be controlled on your modwheel or via our new Mod-Sequencer. You will never go back after trying them!
