ASM Ashun Sound Machines HSLX Details

The ASM Hydrasynth Deluxe packs two 8-voice Hydrasynths into a single performance instrument, delivering 16 voices of polyphony that you can bend, twist, and morph in limitless ways.

Each of the Hydrasynth Deluxe's 16 voices has three WaveScan oscillators with 219 distinct waveforms, as well as four Mutators for sophisticated waveshaping, rivaling the sonic capabilities of several popular software synthesizer plug-ins. In Multi mode, the Hydrasynth Deluxe becomes two perfectly integrated 8-voice Hydrasynths, giving you the ability to generate bi-timbral patches, which can be layered or split into two key zones. This monstrously powerful digital synthesizer's five ADSR envelope generators offer delay and hold, as well as linear or exponential curves between stages, while five LFOs boasts 11 total waveshapes, as well as delay, fade in, and smoothing. Add in a 73-note keybed, a customizable PolyTouch response, an expressive ribbon controller, and CV/Gate connectivity, and the ASM Hydrasynth Deluxe could be the stage and studio synthesizer and sound design workstation of your dreams!

Extensive modulation capabilities
With its 32-slot modulation matrix, Hydrasynth Deluxe empowers you to create incredibly nuanced and expressive sounds. Synthesists are particularly impressed with its envelope generators (five per voice), which offer delay and hold in addition to ADSR stages. Each stage of the envelope can sweep through exponential and logarithmic curves, which offers big creative potential for long, evolving modulations.

Like most of the functions on Hydrasynth Deluxe, envelopes can be locked to bpm for tempo-synced modulations. Combined with the looping function, you can use the envelopes as LFOs with interesting waveshapes. And speaking of LFOs, Hydrasynth Deluxe offers five LFOs per voice with 11 total waveshapes. That includes the 8-step LFO, which allows you to create your own custom waveshape.

Amazing performance potential with PolyTouch and ribbon controller
Whether you're performing or recording, Hydratouch Deluxe delivers an incredibly expressive playing experience, especially when you dig into its PolyTouch capabilities. PolyTouch is a new method of polyphonic aftertouch sensing. You have full control over aftertouch curves, offsets, and release times, giving you big creative potential when using aftertouch to manipulate your sounds. A built-in ribbon controller expands your performance options further - it can control pitch bend or modulation amount, and a Theremin mode allows you to play melodies on the ribbon controller against whatever you're playing on the keyboard.

Deep synthesis with an intuitive interface
While the Hydrasynth Deluxe sound engine is remarkably powerful, it's relatively simple to find and tweak the parameters you're looking for. On the front panel, you'll find a graphic representation of the audio path, with buttons to select each individual section (individual oscillators, mixer, effects, and so on). Selecting a section brings its associated parameters to the display, with eight encoders ready to tweak. In other words, every section of this synth can be accessed with a button press, no menu diving required.

Advanced real-time control via eight macro controls
One of the most popular aspects of software synthesizers is the ability to control multiple parameters simultaneously via macro controls, and the ASM Hydrasynth Deluxe gives you that creative power in hardware form. You can customize its eight macro controls to tweak up to eight destinations simultaneously. And with a total of 170 modulation destinations to explore, you can easily use the macro controls to warp between completely distinct sound variations on the fly.

Layer two 8-voice patches in Multi mode
While you can take advantage of all 16 voices for a single patch, the Hydrasynth Deluxe lets you take your sound design even further with Multi mode. When you engage Multi mode, the Hydrasynth Deluxe transforms into two perfectly integrated 8-voice Hydrasynths. Build ultra-complex bi-timbral patches, and crossfade between them using the balance control, or activate the key split function and command two separate patches from user-defined key zones. You can even define a crossfade point to seamlessly transition from one sound to the other as you move up and down the Hydrasynth Deluxe's spectacular keyboard! Plus, in Multi mode, the number of assignable macros double, presenting you with even more sound-bending possibilities!
