Classic Hybrid FX

8Dio Hybrid Tools Series is the leading industry standard for Epic Cinematic Scoring Tools. The defacto standard for modern scoring and production, 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-rendered user-interface with every single feature one could dream of: a built-in articulation browser, an advanced arpeggiation and rhythm-making tool, immediate control over speed and pitch envelopes, articulation stacking, single-click reversing, tempo-syncing everything with the gate function, and mangling the sounds further through our Chaos FX Engine. It is all there and just a few clicks away. 

Hybrid Tools 1 contains 10 Different Core FX Categories: Boomers, Distortions, Downers, Impacts, Mega-Horns, Risers, Transformative 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. 

Our new Chaos FX 3.3 Engine contains over 100,000 lines of code and includes the ability to randomize and manipulate over 1,500 parameters with a single click. You can also go deeper and control everything from Filters, Step-Based Filtering, 3 EQ, Stereo Delay, Bit Crusher, Distortion, Dual-Convolution reverb with convolution FX.
