Precisionsound has  released Hybrid Factory, a sample-based synthesiser for Native Instruments  Kontakt 4, capable of over 1,000 combinations of sounds. With Hybrid Factory,  users can make warm analogue emulations, aggressive digital tones, and imaginary  electroacoustic instruments.

The samples in  Hybrid Factory were created by Iain Morland using a wide range of techniques,  including resynthesizing acoustic instruments; physical modelling; granular  synthesis; processing Foley recordings; FM synthesis; sampling old cassettes;  and convolving instruments with one another. This gives users a varied and  unusual palette for sound design.

Precisionsound  founder Lars Westin said, “Hybrid Factory’s scripted Kontakt interface puts all  the samples at your fingertips. It lets you see the waveforms with which you are  working. You can shape the dynamics, apply filters, phasers, chorus and reverb  effects, and add three different flavours of  distortion.”

Hybrid Factory  contains:

·          Over 1,160 stereo samples at 24-bit, 44.1khz  quality

·          80 NKI presets, including basses, leads, keys and pads,  demonstrating the capabilities of Hybrid Factory

·          Twelve unique impulse responses

·          A default NKI to use as a starting point for user  patches

The size of the  sample pool is 1.77GB (1.32GB compressed). Thanks to Kontakt’s disk streaming  technology, the samples use only 134MB RAM.

The full version of  Kontakt 4.2.3 or above is required. Hybrid Factory will not work with the free  Kontakt Player.

Price: Hybrid  Factory costs $69 (+$11 if you want it on DVD).
