The Hydrasynth is an advanced 8-Voice Digital WaveMorphing Synthesizer, designed to take the well-loved wavetable synthesis technology to new heights.
One of the highlights of the Hydrasynth is the ability for the users to assemble custom wavetables on the unit, choosing from the onboard 219 single cycle waveforms. One can tailor his sound with ease and precision.
In addition to advance oscillator design, the 4 Mutators further expand the sonic palette of the oscillators, allowing FM modulation, Wave-stacking, Pulse Width modulation and more. The audio chain continues with the filter section features 2 filters, of multiple models, which can be set in series or parallel. The timbre generation of the Hydrasynth is proved to be very powerful and versatile.
In terms of modulations, the Hydrasynth features 5 LFOs, 5 Envelope Generators and 32 Modulation Slots. With a total of 29 modulation sources and 155 destinations, the Hydrasynth can handle any demanding sound design duties with room to spare. Did I mention the Hydrasynth can bring in external Control Voltage from modular gear as modulation source too?
Another highlight of the Hydrasynth is PolyAftertouch. The ASM custom Key-bed (Keyboard version) and touchpad (Desktop version) allow polyphonic aftertouch modulations on individual keys, giving musicians more expressivity than traditional aftertouch.
The onboard effects section is well thought-out as well, featuring Pre and Post-Effects, before and after Delay and Reverb. Users can customise their effect signal chain way more advance.
Last but not least, the intuitive user interface and menu system of the Hydrasynth result in a smooth and efficient workflow with this deep and complex synthesizer.
This keyboard version comes with 49 keys and a 4 Octave ribbon controller, makes it perfect for performing musician and studio musicians.
To sum up, Hydrasynth is probably the ultimate synthesizer for electronic musicians and sound designers.
