8DIO/Troels Folmann has released Hybrid Tools, a powerful scoring tool designed for modern electronica and soundtrack composers, for Kontakt.
Hybrid Tools is flexible and intuitive scoring tool designed to give a modern sound to your compositions. The instrument contains 38 different core banks of hybrid scoring tools from hybrid rhythms to transforming metals, motion picture boom drones to sick mega-horns, cinematic synths to impacts, phat downers to wild risers, crescendo and decrescendo FX, screaming distortions, etc.
Hybrid Tools contains over 900 different musical sound designs – covering all the essential elements used in contemporary hybrid scoring. The library is using an advanced, yet intuitive, layout that essentially allows you to control most things from your keyboard. The bottom part of the keyboard controls the pitch of the sounds. The mid part of the keyboard controls the sounds themselves. The upper part of the keyboard gives you real-time control over all the effects, including distortion, phaser, flanger, lofi, convolution reverb, delay, lowpass, hipass and several other effects. In addition 8DIO also added a grain (bit-resolution) to the pitchbender and filter to the modwheel – giving you an extreme amount of control right at your finger tips.
Hybrid Tools is 8DIO's second hybrid instrument release and uses a similar layout/interface introduced in Rhythmic Aura.
