Hype? You Can Believe It

Hype's name speaks for itself—a revolutionary and exciting Hybrid synthesizer plugin instrument with features that extend far beyond its massive preset library.

Cover everything from hard-hitting plucks to sultry melodic leads with this preset and macro-based synth combining multiple synth engines (wavetable, FM, virtual analogue, multi-sample) all in one easy to use interface.

Hype builds on a legacy of over 20 years of excellence in Synthesis brought to you by the same world-class team who made the highly acclaimed Synth Engines inside Hybrid 3, theRiser and Loom 2 to name a few.

Playability has been at the forefront of the design of Hype, providing incredible flexibility while maintaining intuitive controls. Hype's' powerful Macro Editing features allow you to tweak your perfect sound on the fly.

Today's modern music production and beat making demand innovative instruments that enable creativity, and Hype will exceed your expectations on all fronts.


Four sound engines power AIR Hype; FM, Wavetable, Virtual Analog and Sampled, created from decades of research and meticulous design. While they are great individually, they come together to create huge, expressive sounds, filling your studio with massive, multi-dimensional sonic textures.


Dive right into the vast library of sounds and immerse yourself in an ocean of sonic bliss. With over 1500 presets carefully categorized for easy browsing, you will find page after page of instruments that will quickly inspire your next production idea. With six dedicated Macro controls and 8 Editing dials, tweak and shape your sounds specifically for your project and save your customizations for quick access later.

These breath-taking sounds will quickly spark any producer's creativity and make music production a fluid, uninhibited process. Create music and craft your unique sonics seamlessly with a world-class synthesizer plugin.


AIR Hype has world-class audio effects processing built-in to enhance your sounds as you create quickly. Choose from Modulation, Distortion, Hype (EQ), Reverb, Delay, Compressor, Pumper and Limiter, each with a dedicated section to dial-in any adjustments. The Effects panel is intuitively displayed on every page of AIR Hype to conveniently enable or bypass each of the eight effects at any time.

Hype EQ provides a quick way of enhancing the low- or high- end of any patch. Beef up wobbles, basses, and kick-drum sounds with deep sub-bass by adjusting the Low Hype parameter, or turn up Hype High to polish off the high end with shimmer and sparkle; the latter sounds great on pads, strings, brass, and percussive sounds.

The AIR Creative FX collection has been included as part of Pro Tools since Version 8 and is considered the reference FX suite by some of the world's most respected audio professionals. AIR FX has been featured in many of the last decade's top film, game and music projects. Each plugin has been expertly designed with ease of use in mind and will ensure professional results each time.


Included with your Plugin purchase is our Desktop Player application. Fire up the Desktop Version of Hype and connect your favourite MIDI Controller either by USB or Bluetooth, and you are ready to perform live. Our interface has been designed with ease of use and live performance for maximum playability.


Originally exclusive to Akai Professionals MPC and Force products by popular demand, we are excited to bring this plugin to AU, VST, AAX formats for use in your favourite hosts or as a Desktop App. Now you can bring your Standalone projects to your host of choice or take your production on the road with MPC OS devices.

Just tried it a couple of days and I think it will become part of my arsenal.

First of all the good:

  • Very good sound. Every sample and Osc sounds amazing, no cramping or aliasing so far.
  • Very, very excellent presets!!! I tried all of them out and they all sound amazing.
  • very good Fx, with just a few tweaks you get what you want.
  • Simple but yet fun interface.

Now the Bad:

  • No arpeggios.
  • Starting from scratch not easy.
  • No separate browser for searching sounds per genre.

Overall there are some misses when it comes to sound design from scratch, but the excellent sound of itself and all the presets make it more than worthwhile.

Can't really rate this software as I can't use it because it does not install properly on W11 pro.
