Hybrid Tools Neo II for Kontakt VST-AU-AAX overview

Hybrid Tools NEO II is the newest cinematic scoring tool designed based on the latest and emerging scoring trends.

This curated library contains 13 meta-categories that each contains many hundreds of instruments, synths and musical sound designs.  It takes over where we left with our Terminus, Equinox and Neo I libraries and offers 13 new deep categories of cinematic instruments.

From multi-sampled analog drums to massive arrays of new-generation epic drums.  The sound is clean and massive.  Neo II contains large multi-sampled sets of hybrid percussion, super produced tick tocks.  We also added a vast amount of new hybrid rhythms, tick-tock rhythms and gritty rhythms which all adapts to your DAW host-tempo.

In addition we added several new banks of our highly popular Ear Candy categories, which contains extreme new sound designs.  We added tons of large scale and moody cinematic ambiences and deep-sampled noises.  The collection is wrapped up with a massive assortment of deep-sampled synths, 50 different lo-fi stab pianos and the most perfect collection of filmic tonal 808s you may ever hear.

Our flagship Hybrid Tools series started as the foundation of 8Dio over a decade ago and since its inception has shaped countless blockbuster movies, trailers, and an almost endless list of AAA game titles. With every iteration of the Hybrid Series, we offer not only what is the current trend in music production, but where we feel production is and should be going.

Hybrid Tools Neo II is designed to sit right in your mix without further processing.  It took over two years to produce and every sound was treated like a piece of music.  The mix is dialed to perfection, so you can just focus on the music.

NEO II also includes our 3D rendered Hybrid User Interface, featuring a variety of indispensable controls, including a fully equipped Arpeggiator, Tempo Synchronized Gate, Playback Direction Control, Speed Control, Pitch Envelope and Sample Offset with Randomization, all accessible from the main interface. You can of course also go deeper into our Effects and control everything from Low to High-Pass Filters, Three Band EQ, Dual Delay, Bit-Crusher, Distortion, Dual-Convolution Reverb and an array of included tempo accurate Textural Convolution pulses. We have also tagged the entire collection with embedded Meta-Data to be fully ready for integration into any sound file management system of your choice.

NEO: Volume II offers you everything you need to create the driving force behind your music, adding a sense of production-friendly grit and analog warmth lacking in most digital arrangements.

Cut Through The Mix

Hybrid Tools NEO II comprises of a hand-crafted collection of some of the grittiest cutting-edge sound design we have ever released. Created from brand new recording sessions, NEO II is the ideal tool for producing something unique and perfect for constructing elements that can easily cut through the mix. Each sound within NEO II was created from meticulously processing vintage hardware and real-world recordings through a variety of analog equipment. The end result is a level of saturation, dirt and lush overtones that are indispensable to both the lo-fi producer and cinematic trailer composer providing an almost unprecedented level of warmth and character.

Hybrid Design

The core concept of our Hybrid Tools Series is to make the creation and customization of trailer ready sound effects as easy and accessible as possible. To help with this, we created our custom Hybrid user-interface. Quickly adjust or automate the attack, release, speed and pitch envelope of your chosen set of sounds, letting them perfectly fit within your track. With a few simple mouse clicks, you can audition different categories or endlessly layer them together. Or why not separate an individual sound to be chromatically sampled or further sequenced with the inbuilt Arpeggiator. The Hybrid Tools interface allows for endless customization and all in real-time. 

We have also included our latest Chaos effects module for even further control of processing and refinement over your music.

Advanced Chaos FX Rack

Hybrid Tools NEO II includes the latest in our industry-leading custom effects rack. The Chaos Effects system allows you to shape, manipulate and entirely customize your sound in almost any way imaginable. 

Whether its creating movement and modulation using the Phaser and Flanger module or dialling in precise tonal changes with the inbuilt Equalizer. Or why not alter the character further with Bit Crusher and Distortion or create a sense of depth and space with the Dual Delays and multiple Reverb modules. We also included a range of Impulse Responses which allow you to create Textural Convolution Patterns. These are rhythmic phrases that lay over the existing sound that when coupled with the dual delay and deep convolution reverb enables the shaping of your very own sound. Now in our latest version of the Chaos FX system, each effect can also be placed on any rack, enabling a genuinely modular signal flow. 

Your Sound, Your Way

Finding the right sound for you is never an easy task. Hybrid Tools NEO II  comes with several instrument patches, with each subset of sounds mapped to pre-loaded articulations using our advanced yet straightforward interface browser. Each category is intuitively programmed, allowing you to audition and find the right sound for you, even faster and straight from the keys. 

Hybrid Tools NEO II also comes pre-embedded with Meta-Data tagging, allowing you to directly search and load files through your favourite sound file application. This means vital phrases such as Percussion, Tonal and even Beats Per Minute can be used to locate and identify suitable files, making finding the right sound out of the D.A.W easier than ever. At 44.1kHz / 24 Bit .wav, all the sounds within this library are drag and drop friendly, making production within or outside of the Kontakt format seamless and perfect for composers, sound designers and editors alike.
