Hydrapolarity is our second release in our series of cinematic sound expanders for Arturia Pigments. While our first release was built on cinematic soundscapes made by the Virus TI - Hydrapolarity is built on the same concept - except this time we are focusing on the Hydrasynth by Ashun Sound Machines.

“hydrapolarity is a cinematic soundset aimed for ambient genres, game sound development as well tv and movies”

The core of the soundset is based on 386 megabytes of samples, mainly clean recordings from the Hydrasynth - but not all. In order to create a new dimension of the sounds, we also processed the sounds using the E-mu E4XT hardware sampler - specifically using the unique XMulti function, which basically is an algorithm to mash the characteristics of two sounds together. Compared with modern computers, this function is very slow, sometimes taking more than 30 minutes to render a single sound, with no guarantees that the result will sound interesting. The development Hydrapolarity took about six months to finish.

All Macro knobs are programmed for easy-access of core parameters, and a major part of the soundset is using granular synthesis.

While the main focus is on ambient soundscapes and textures, there are a handful of pads, effects and boomers - using the library of effects that comes with Pigments 3.
