Ashun Sound Machines today introduced the Hydrasynth Deluxe, a flagship version of their innovative Hydrasynth.
The Hydrasynth Deluxe is their flagship Hydrasynth, offering dual sound engines that you can use for additional polyphony, splits and layers. The sound engines are the same as existing Hydrasynths, and patches are 100% compatible with the existing Hydrasynths.
Each of the two sound engines features 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators and 2 filters, that can be configured in series or parallel. Both of the sound engines has its own separate balanced analog audio outputs.
The Hydrasynth Deluxe also features a 73-note Polytouch keybed, offering polyphonic aftertouch and a 4-octave ribbon controller. ASM says that this gives the new synth a level of “expression and control that is not equaled in any other hardware synthesizer on the market… Today or ever.”
Here’s the official intro from ASM CEO Glen Darcey:
