Digidesign is shipping Hybrid (Mac/Win), an RTAS synthesizer plug-in for use in Pro Tools. Hybrid features three high-definition oscillators that offer classic analog-style waveforms, such as sawtooth, square, and pulse, as well as complex waveforms such as a 7-oscillator stack called multisaw, a cross-modulation oscillator, oscillator sync, and more than 100 wavetables with 64 single-cycle waveforms in each.
The synth includes four envelope generators, three LFOs with sample and hold, a phrase generator, two step sequencers, an arpeggiator, and four morph groups. Hybrid offers 23 filter types, including resonant highpass, lowpass, bandpass, and allpass (for phase shifter effects). To add beefiness to the filter, Hybrid includes a saturation algorithm that overdrives the filter itself rather than distorting the signal before or after the filter.
Hybrid gives you two insert effects processors per part, and each processor has more than 30 algorithms. A separate Master effects processor is available, offering reverb, tape delay simulation, chorus, and flanging. For more information, visit Digidesign.com.
