DidgHybridoo does not rely on sampled phrases or generic uncontrollable drones. It is a hybrid solution that not only morphs between the different vowel samples, but enhances the vowels with the help of a custom formant filtering engine, so a user can make a virtual didgeridooist pronounce different vowels and smoothly change between them.
With DidgHybridoo a user can design their own rhythms by customizing the 12 rhythm patterns. The VowelWheel allows the user to fully customize the vowels the virtual didgeridooist will sing. The patterns control how much the cursor moves between the Start and the End vowels, the intensity of the playing and how much the didgeridooist growls.
A user can alter the sound of DidgHybridoo in various ways; by changing the formant frequencies, altering one or more overtones, adjusting the gain of a single overtone, or adding a resonator to enhance particular frequencies. This is designed to make the instrument suitable to many sound design experiments. Included are NKI's with morphable drones, didgeridoo-based soundscapes and rhythmic resonant sequences. The sequences can be smoothed or randomized to give more realism to the final performance.
There are three main patches in DidgHybridoo: an ambient-film-scoring patch and two different sounding ones which suit the best for modern music:
- 326 MB Sample library (compressed in Kontakt's NCW Format).
- 519 Samples (44kHz/24-bit).
- 13 NKI Patches.
- Advanced formant filtering engine.
- Rhythmic Modulator with Start/End, Intensity and Growl control.
- 8 Resonator presets based on the selected drone note.
- 18 unique Convolution IRs.
