Overview

8Dio’s Epic Taiko Ensemble is one of the most comprehensive and deeply sampled collections of large-scale taiko drum ensembles on the market. The library is a completely remastered, redesigned and reprogrammed edition of the original Epic Taiko Ensemble. Epic Taiko Ensemble contains over 2,900 samples, two microphone positions, built-in articulation browser, internal step-sequencer, front-face FX, textural convolutions and 8Dio’s custom 3.4 Chaos Engine.

The Epic Taiko Ensemble features the highly renowned Taiko Ensemble group: Emeryville Taiko lead by master, Susan Horn. The recordings lasted over a week, which captured an unprecedented amount of content. Epic Taiko Ensemble contains four main categories of samples: Multi-sampled Taiko Ensemble (10 round robin for all articulations), Live Loops of the Taiko Ensemble and an assortment of other sounds associated to Taiko (ex. ensemble screams, yells, yell-hits, percussive cannon (Tekkan) and presets.

Epic Taiko Ensemble follows the same principles established in all of 8Dio’s other epic percussion libraries in terms of articulations, velocity layering and round robin. Articulations have up to eight velocity layers and all sampled at 10 round robins (aka repetitions). The team at 8Dio sampled all the classic taiko drums from the big sounding, O-Daiko, Nagado Daiko to the smaller and more snare like, Shime. In addition the drums were also played with hands and alternative stick types – and the most comprehensive collection of clacks made with different type of sticks and by hitting the rims of the larger Taiko drums.

In addition, there’s a large collection of tempo-based loops at 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130 and 140 BPM. The loops can be used as on their own and/or in combination with the multi-samples. The loops contain both classic Taiko style rhythms and more contemporary rhythms for film scoring etc.
