The Hydrasynth keyboard is both a sound designers dream synth as well as a performing musicians ideal. The sound engine is designed for maximum flexibility. At the same time, Ashun Sound Machines designed the user interface in a way to allow you to edit the patch quickly with a minimal amount of paging and many workflow shortcuts. Utilizing an advanced wavetable synthesis engine, 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators, and 2 filters that can be configured in series or parallel, the tone generating capabilities are unmatched. As for the performance capabilities, The Hydrasynth keyboard has Ashun Sound Machines' proprietary Polytouch keybed that offers polyphonic aftertouch over each note, giving you the type of expressive control found only in certain vintage synths. Add to this a 4 octave ribbon controller, ergonomically designed pitch, mod wheels and you have expression and control that is not equaled in any other hardware synthesizer on the market… Today or ever.

Polytouch Keybed
The ASM Polytouch keybed allows not only the standard velocity and aftertouch found on other keybeds but supports fully polyphonic aftertouch. In recent years companies have been trying to find ways to give the keyboard musician more ways to better express themselves. The problem is that their solution is almost never a keyboard, so you have to learn a new technique to play them. The Polytouch keybed features a high-quality, standard sized keys, so you can start playing it instantly.

Oscillators
The tone generation capability is the heart of any synthesizer. The 3 oscillators allow you to choose from a selection of 219 single cycle waveforms. Wavemorphing is a feature usually found on synths with preset wave tables. Creating user wavetables is arduous or downright impossible. Unlike most wavetable synths, Ashun Sound Machines' oscillators 1and 2 have Wavelist mode. This mode allows you to pick and choose 8 waves, from our bank of 219, arrange them in the order you want, and then morph from one to another.

Mixer/Filter Routing
The 3 Oscillators are fed into a mixer along with the Noise generator and Ring Modulator. The Mixer allows you to mix levels as well as pan the input source. There is a balance control that allows you to choose how much signal of each source is routed to filters 1 and 2. The filters can be set to be parallel or series for ultimate flexibility.

Appeggiator
The arpeggiator allows for standard note arpeggiations but also has a phrase arpeggio built-in. Parameters like RATCHET and CHANCE will generate other rhythmic patterns with some randomness to add life and spontaneity to your performance. You can also modulate most of the parameters in the arpeggiator so imagine using LFO's, Envelopes, Polyphonic Aftertouch or the Ribbon controller to modify your arpeggios in real time.
