8DIO Productions has released Hybrid Tools Vol. 3, a new sample library for Kontakt designed to be "the ultimate production tool for epic music and sound design – a tool created for composers and sound designers".
Its predecessor, Hybrid Tools, is featured in many current blockbuster movies, shows and video games – used by composers such as Brian Tyler (e.g. Thor, Ironman 3), Blake Neely (e.g. Mentalist, Arrow), Charlie Clouser (e.g. NiN, Saw Series), Richard Marvin (e.g. Grimm, 6 Feet Under), Paul Haslinger (e.g. Underworld Series, Tangerine Dream), Neal Acree (e.g. WoW, Starcraft II, Diablo 3) and hundreds of other prominent producers and composers.
Hybrid Tools Vol. 3 contains over 4.5GB of content and more then 2,100 hand-crafted sonic gems in 16 different core sound classes. Included are a wide selection of common hybrid sounds (e.g. Boomers, BPM Synced Grooves/Pulses, Drones, Risers, Wooshes), as well as a variety of new sound types based on the most current and upcoming trends in the cinematic world (e.g. Drastic Lines, Epic Tonal Bends, Epic Drum Kits, Levitations, Lights, Psychological Signature Sounds, etc.).
All the content comes in a 3D rendered interface, which includes a built-in mini-browser for instant access to all the sounds. The interface also contains the custom developed FX 3.0 CHAOS Engine and REVERSE feature. The new FX engine contains over 80,000 lines of code and is designed to be one of the most flexible FX engines on the market. Hybrid Tools 3 also comes fully integrated with META-DATA designed for Soundminer, etc.
