Rigid Audio Hibernate is a new virtual instrument plugin (VST/AU) with 256 editable ethereal soundscapes and textures.
The German developer Rigid Audio is known for its great-sounding inexpensive Synthesizer based virtual instruments for Kontakt (full). A disadvantage of the releases is that you need the full version of the Kontakt sampler, which means that the developer excludes many potential buyers.
Rigid Audio has recently added plugins to its portfolio. One of the latest releases is called Hibernate.
Rigid Audio Hibernate
Hibernate is a new virtual instrument powered by a dual-layer engine. Each layer has its own multi-sampled instrument that can be modified with different parameters. Including pan, volume, tune, and an ADSR envelope per layer. In total, you get 256 multi-sampled sound sets.
Then, the engine hosts a master filter that shapes both layers at the same time. Besides the ADSR envelopes per layer, you can also get an LFO that can be routed to a parameter.
There are also different onboard effects allowing you to refine your sounds: chorus, delay, and reverb. Each effect has its own set of parameters.
Hibernate is a very simple virtual instrument that generates great pads and textures with a few clicks. The plugin is particularly interesting for all musicians who don’t want to invest a lot of time in designing their own sounds.
I’m glad to see that Rigid Audio is now making plugins so more people can work with these sounds. With Kontakt (full) instruments, the range of potential users is smaller because it requires the full version of Native Instruments sampler.
Black Friday/Cyber Monday
For all those who have the full version of the Kontakt sampler, there is a great deal for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. You can buy all Rigid Audio instruments for Kontakt (full) for 39€. It includes 31 products, 58GB of content, and over 8000 sounds and presets.
Rigid Audio Hibernate is available now for $9 USD (reg. $39 USD). It runs as a VST and AU plugin on macOS and Windows. The intro offer ends on December 1st, 2022.
