The New Hybrid Tools 1 overview

8Dio Hybrid Tools Series is the leading industry standard for Epic Cinematic Scoring Tools. Hybrid Tools 1 is the defacto standard for modern scoring and production.

The New Hybrid Tools 1 represents a quantum leap in functionality compared to the original Hybrid Tools Vol. 1 library. We rebuilt everything around a new 3D-render user-interface and with every single feature one could dream of. Whether it is the built-in articulation browser, advanced arpeggiation and rhythm making tool or immediate control over speed, pitch envelopes.Whether it is the ability to stack multiple articulations or simply reverse everything with a single click. Whether it is tempo-syncing all the sounds through our gate function or mangle the sounds further through our Chaos FX Engine. It is all there and just a few clicks away.

The New Hybrid Tools 1 contains 10 Different Core FX Categories, including Boomers, Distortions, Downers, Impacts, Mega-Horns, Risers, Transformorphing Sounds, Whooshes, Hybrid Rhythms, 45 Multi-Sampled Synths and 30 additional core presets.

All Core FX Categories have a variety of specialized sub-categories – offering you virtually any take on the sounds. Whether it is a normal or a gritty impact, a slow, medium or fast riser or bass, medium and high-frequency based Hybrid Rhythms.

The New Hybrid Tools 1 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 manipulated over 1.500 parameters with a single click.

The New Hybrid Tools 1 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.

Worlds Most Popular Cinematic Tool

Hybrid Tools 1 is the library that started it all and redefined an entire category of modern cinematic sound design. It is still the most frequently used Hybrid Cinematic style library in the world and featured in hundreds of current Blockbuster Movies, TV-Shows, Video Games etc. The library includes a variety of Hybrid Signature Sound categories, including Mega Horns, Boomers, Wooshes, Drones, Synths, Smashing Impacts, Distortions and Risers. You will also find an amazing collection of Downers, Risers, De- and Crescendo effects.

Hybrid Effects

The New Hybrid Tools 1 is designed around a new 3D-Rendered User-Interface (UI). The new UI offers you a slew of new features, including the ability to access any articulation with a single click, sequence and arpeggiate anything you want, reverse all samples with one click, control attack, release, speed, pitch envelopes, offset and many other features from the front interface. We also created a new gate function that will gate anything you want to your designated DAW host-tempo.

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 feature in Hybrid Tools Synphony. The 3.3 FX CHAOS Engine allows you 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.

Arpeggiation and Sequencing

The 3D-rendered User-Interface in New Hybrid Tools 1 offers you the ability to sequence and arpeggiate anything you want. The step-based sequencer offers you anything from time-signature control, octave, swing and rate control. You can also select from a variety of pre-made arpeggiation patterns (ex. Up, Down, Up-Down, Down-Up, Zig-Zag, Random and dozens of others). The step-sequencer also offers you velocity based controls, so you can sculpt your rhythms even further. Try sculpt a bunch of mega-horns and see what happens!

Articulation and Stacking Control

New Hybrid Tools 1 contains a built-in articulation sequencer and stack control. The articulation sequencer offers you instant access to all sub-articulations within the instrument. The stack control gives you the ability to stack as many articulations you want together. This can be particularly effective for elements such as hits or synths. We recommend using stacking in building quick synth presets. Simply stack as many synths you want until you find the texture that works perfectly for your composition. It just takes a few seconds.


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.
