8Dio Released New Bowed Piano With Intro Sale For Limited Time


The New Bowed Grand Piano is a library dedicated to the deep sampling of bowed and FX based Grand Piano. The bowing of a piano is a delicate and precise effort.

Since the instrument is not designed to be bowed we developed a variety of new recording techniques that allowed 8Dio to get deep inside the piano and record a variety of bowings and FX that haven’t been covered in previous libraries.

The library is more ambient than any other pianos. The concept of bowing a piano tends to go into the more ambient and drone design direction.

8Dio then proceeded to capture a variety of ambient recordings and started developing an entire drone section of the library. Entirely based on source material from the piano itself.

In addition to this, 8Dio added a vast FX section to the library. Containing a large array of string glissandos, scrapes, scary knocks and various percussive FX.

    I have the old Bowed Piano and the New Bowed Piano from 8Dio. I like and use the Old one. I’m not feeling the new one. Everything about it sounds metallic and gimmicky. Maybe its charms are escaping me …

      New Bowed Piano does sound little artificial. Thanks for commenting Wade.
