If you’re a composer for film, TV and media you’re probably familiar with 8Dio’s Hybrid Tools. Released in 2011, it was a flexible and intuitive scoring tool designed to help composers get a modern sound to their tracks.
Last week, the company unveiled the new Hybrid Tools 1, in their words “a quantum leap in functionality compared to the original Hybrid Tools Vol. 1”.
The new library boasts a 3D-render user-interface and tons of new features. Here is a great introductory video which goes into lots of detail:
The New Hybrid Tools 1 contains 10 different Core FX categories, including Boomers, Distortions, Downers, Impacts, Mega-Horns, Risers, Transformorphing Sounds, Whooshes, Hybrid Rhythms, 45 Multi-Sampled Synths and 30 additional core presets.
All Core FX Categories have a variety of specialized sub-categories – offering you virtually any take on the sounds. Whether it is a normal or a gritty impact, a slow, medium or fast riser or bass, medium and high-frequency based Hybrid Rhythms.
This video demonstrates some of the presets featured in Hybrid Tools Synphony (VST/AU/AAX) for Kontakt.
The New Hybrid Tools 1 contains a variety of exclusive features, including the new Chaos FX 3.3 Engine, which contains over 100.000 lines of code and includes 8Dio’s CHAOS engine with the ability to randomize, reverse, mix/blend anything you want and manipulated over 1.500 parameters with a single click.
