Hybrid Tools 4 – Modern Cinema overview

8Dio Hybrid Tools Series has become the professional gold standard for high-end cinematic scoring tools. Featured in thousands Blockbusters, TV-Shows, AAA Video Games, Int. Trailers and everything in between.

Hybrid Tools 4 is about expanding the notion of what instruments and sound design be. Creating a new hybrid style of musical sound design that applies broadly across the spectrum of music.

The last Hybrid Tools was released in 2015 and we’ve been spending over two years on the creation of Hybrid Tools 4.

We wanted to create something entirely original in all regards. All instrument categories are completely new from our new signature bad-ass patches to the tonally splitting separators, from poetic Starfalls to modified lightning strikes, from roaring spaceship passbys to beautiful little sonical fireflies.

Hybrid Tools 4 is somewhere between super-epic and Sonic poetry at the same time. Every single sample has been carefully curated and undergone several revisions and that’s how two years went by.

But let the product speak for itself. Who cares about colorful marketing and fancy buttons if it doesn’t sound cool. Check our walkthroughs. Check those Bad-Asses. Check anything you want.

There is a new sonic sheriff in town!

All New Categories

Hybrid Tools 4 contains over 1000 new sound designs and every category is completely new. One of the reasons its been taking so long to create – is that we only wanted new sound categories. From the instant signature of our Bad-Ass categories to the deep selection of 5 different ultra modern boomer categories. From lush and poetic Starfalls to the roaring and penetrating Echo-Horns. From giant space ships in our Pass-By category to the ultimate ending tool called Wind-Downs. Just check the demos and videos. It will all make sense!

Cinematic meets Modern

Hybrid Tools 4 (HT4) offers you the ultimate production tool for high-end cinematic music. HT4 is based around our custom 3D mini-browser that allows you to access all sounds immediately. All core banks come preloaded in the internal browser, so you can audition dozens of patches without load-time. You can combine as many patches you want using our STACK key – and you can REVERSE, RANDOMIZE and CHAOS anything with a single click from the front-interface. Because lets be honest, some things just sound amazing backwards. Everything is right at your finger tips. So you can get back to the important stuff, making music.

Control the CHAOS

Our CHAOS Effects Engine allows you to STACK, RANDOMIZE, REVERSE and CHAOS any or ALL patches with a single click. Stacking allows you to stack up several banks at the same time and create completely new instruments with a single click. Reverse allows you to reverse any sample with a single click. The deeper parts of the chaos engine offers you control over 1.500 sample parameters. You randomize whatever you want – with just a click.

The Hybrid Way

Hybrid Tools 4 contains over 1000 musical sound designs that can be combined in an infinite amount of ways. A crossbreed between music instruments and sound design. We call it: “Musical Sound Design”. From the roaring blasts of Echo-Horns to the futuristic Runner Benders, to the largest collection of pro-grade Boomers to the ultra slamming Bad-Asses. Hybrid Tools 4 is all about attitude – and getting that modern cinematic sound into your music.

Original. In Every Sample.

Hybrid Tools 4 was founded in originality. Every sample was sonically marinated, manicured and curated to perfection. All sound categories are completely new and the vast tools of the 3D-Based User Interface makes creates an infinite amount of possibilities.

Host Sync

Many patches in our Hybrid Series are designed to match your host tempo. All you have to do is load the appropriate “Synced” or “Sliced” patch. We also have additional Gate functionality on all patches. The gate syncs at either half, normal or double tempo and you can even control the length of the gate. This feature becomes really powerful used together with our STACK button, allowing you to merge multiple patches together and gate them with a single click. Life is easier that way.
