Hybrid Tools 2 

The 8Dio Hybrid Tools Series is the industry-leading standard for Epic Cinematic Scoring Tools. The defacto standard for modern scoring and production, Hybrid Tools 2 is the next evolution in contemporary musical sound design: a tool created for both composers and sound designers. The tool is specifically designed to add that hybrid/modern sound to your compositions. 

The instrument contains a variety of core banks from the biggest mega-horns ever made to our new psychological signature sounds that burns into your brain. We created some insanely big percussive rolls, which are perfect for transitions, and a cool assortment of Dubstep Trailer FX. We also added fresh whooshes, risers, and slamming hits that all have that strong, cut-through sound used in many trailers. 

In addition, we added a massive collection of cursed sounds, ideal for dark scoring and horror trailers, and new categories such as hybrid drones, hybrid noises, and epic kits. You will also find tonal elements, synth basses, manipulated choral effects, and manipulated roaring vintage race cars that sounds unbelievably cool. Hybrid Tools 2 also contains a new category known as Defcon, which contains a massive amount of never-before-conceived hybrid sounds.
