Hydra Stack is a collection of Multi Sampled instruments sampled from a Hydra Synth using the Wavestack Mutant. This module creates a detuned unison style of sound from the loaded oscillator shape. 218 instruments have been sampled at 96khz using 2 samples per octave over 5 octaves for a great sampled range. There are 2 complete sets, one set at 20% detune & the other at 40%. The digital waveforms from the Hydrasynth are special imo due to their high resolution & a great collection for bright sounds that don’t sound harsh. The WAVS use metadata & naming that should make them compatible with samplers that look for this info.
The ‘Stack’ Kontakt instrument was designed to be a simple 2 ‘Oscillator’ Synth for easily creating/ randomising sounds It deploys a wave shape and time method to shape the volume and filter envelopes. I often create complex scripts, but I hope that this one is simple and easy to understand. I resisted adding the usual effects as I think these samples sound really good without them, and I also wanted to create an instrument that was easy on CPU. I did include Room Reverb, although it doesn’t get used often in randomised sounds but is easily added to taste.
