Hybrid Tools Synphony overview

8Dio Hybrid Tools Series is the leading industry standard for Epic Cinematic Scoring Tools. Hybrid Tools Synphony represent the latest- and largest iteration in the series. The library contains over 24GB (losslessly compressed to 11GB) and a variety of new scoring elements. The core concept was to create a new breed of Hybrid Tools – purely designed with analog synthesizers.

Hybrid Tools Synphony contains 10 Different Core FX Categories, including Dopplers, Downers, Exmachines 1-2, Mega Horns, Sub Strikes, Whoosh Slow and Woosh Fast, Tonal Boomers and Tonal Downers and ten cinematic Drum Kits.

Hybrid Tools Synphony also contains a full synth-rendered symphony orchestra (strings, brass, winds, percussion) – all redesigned with analog synths. The idea is to have a synthetic orchestra that can work together with your normal orchestra. Synphony also contains hundreds of cinematic Bass Synths, Cinematic Lead Synths, Sequenced Synths, Tonal Noises and over 50 different presets.

Hybrid Tools Synphony contains a variety of exclusive features that you won’t find anywhere else, including our new Chaos FX 3.3 Engine, which contains over 100,000 lines of code and includes our CHAOS engine, with the ability to randomize, reverse, mix/blend anything you want and manipulate over 1.500 parameters with a single click.

Synphony contains a fully rendered 3D User Interface with a variety of new controls, including Tempo-Synced Gate, Reverse, Randomizer, Speed Control, Pitch Envelope, Glide and Offset – all accessible from the front-interface. You can also go deeper into our Chaos FX and control everything from Filters, Step-Based Filtering, 3 EQ, Stereo Delay, Bit Crusher, Distortion, Dual-Convolution reverb with convolution FX.

A New Hybrid

Hybrid Tools Synphony is the new breed of cinematic scoring tools. The library contains over 24GB (compressed to 11GB) of new Hybrid Content. Whether you want the newest industry defining Hybrid Effects (e.g., Tonal Boomers, Downers, Mega-Horns, Sub-Strikes etc.) or a full Synphony Orchestra built with analog synths. Whether you want 100’s of multi-sampled synths, hard-kicking cinematic drum-kits or inspirational presets, with Hybrid Tools Synphony you can have it all.

New Mini-Browser and REVERSE feature

Hybrid Tools Synphony contains a 3D mini-browser that allows you to access all sounds immediately. All core banks come preloaded in the internal browser so that 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. Everything is right at your fingertips, so you can get back to making music.

New 3.3 FX CHAOS Engine

Our new 3.3 FX CHAOS Engine allows you to STACK, RANDOMIZE, REVERSE and CHAOS any or ALL patches with a single click. It is one of the most extreme features in Hybrid Tools Synphony. The 3.3 FX CHAOS Engine allows you to make over 1,500 sample parameters randomize with one click, while also randomizing our new 8Dio FX System. So both the sample content and the assigned FX will be randomized in one glorious cocktail – all with one click.

New Hybrid Tools Effects

8Dio Hybrid Tools Series is the industry-leading production tool for cinematic scoring and sound design. The Synphony contains 10 core categories of Hybrid Effects, including new sound sets like Dopplers, Exmachine, Sub-Strikes, Tonal Boomers and Tonal Downers. But also new content in familiar categories such as Downers, Mega-Horns, Whooshes etc. The new architecture in Synphony allows you to blend ANY of these categories in real-time using our STACK function.

Synphony Orchestra

Hybrid Tools Synphony also contains a full Synphony Orchestra – made entire with analog synths. It designed to be used stand-alone and to augment traditional symphony instruments. We created both sustains and round-robin based staccato samples for ALL major orchestral groups (ex. Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, Trumpets, French Horns, Trombones, Orchestral Percussion, Woodwinds etc).

Drum Sequencer

Hybrid Tools Synphony contains a full-fledged drum-sequencer, which allows you to push our new 10 cinematic drum-kits to the absolutely maximum. The drum sequencer contains up to 4 different patterns that can be controlled in real-time and all knots-bolts you would expect from a drum-sequencer. In addition you use our STACK function and combine as many kits you want and manipulate the sounds instantly from our front-panel.


Hybrid Tools Synphony controls a powerful arpeggiator allowing you to vritually arpeggiate anything you want. You can control the velocity, steps, swing, rate, repetition, steps and many other elements in the arpeggiation, while also manipulating features such as attack, release, pitch-envolope, randomization, reverse, chaos and many other elements in real-time.


Everything in Synphony is designed to match your host tempo. All you have to do is click the GATE button and you are all hooked up. The gate syncs at either half, normal or double tempo and you can control the length of the gate too. This feature becomes really powerful used together with our STACK button that allows you to merge multiple patches together and gate them with a single click. Life is easier that way.
