►New sounds by Jexus ►Creative patches of the ultra-versatile Hydrasynth.

video upload by

"Pros & cons: Exactly 3 years ago I released my first HS video, but it only showed around 40 sounds. Here's an update with more patches and a lot of new sounds, free for everyone who got the original preset pack.

No talking demo of ASM Hydrasynth. All sounds custom-made by Jexus. Patches / presets from this soundset work in KB, Desktop, Explorer and Deluxe models. You will receive all the sounds from all my 3 Youtube videos plus extra (256 in total). My patches come under the name "WCOG" in a soundpack / soundbank saved in Hydrasynth Manager format. I did not use any external FX in the demo; all the delays, reverbs, flangers, noises, crackles and other effects are part of the Hydrasynth engine / mod matrix. However, I used some EQ-ing on selected patches."

Hydrasynth really can do Rich and Warm!

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds & Synthesis

"Patches will be available at or

This Patch will be in the Ultimate Pads Vol.1 Bank Coming Soon. - Patch Name SM Omnistax

Following a viewers comment yesterday regarding the hydrasynth not having any depth or richness, I set out today to see just how much depth and richness it can do.

I must admit I was of the same opinion with the lack of depth and warmth, but as always, diving under the hood and carefully adding motion and movement, the Hydrasynth can sound very very warm and very rich indeed. So I will happily stand corrected on my initial views.

I thought I would share this to let anyone who has or had the same opinion, it may make you think again.

This has no external effects, all 100% Hydrasynth.

"Droid Mischief" - Akai MPC X + Arturia MiniFreak + ASM Hydrasynth + Novation BassStation II

video upload by Patrick Manderson

"'Droid Mischief' was recorded live late afternoon on Friday August 25, 2023 using a MIDI sequencer and a room full of synthesizers and drum machines. Three analog mixers were used with a rack of ouboard effects mixed in stereo and recorded. Mixing and automation was controlled by the sequencer directly to the synthesizers. The final recording required manual adjustments and muting of the of mixer channels to suppress the noise coming from some of the devices. Video was recorded weeks after afterwards.

'Droid Mischief' was inspired initially from a previous composition utilizing a number of budget analog synths from Behringer. At [3:35] these synth along with the everpresent Novation BassStation II play a series of bleeps and bloops with a backdrop of ominous vocal grunts and breaths by the *Korg MS2000*. Each of the Behringer analog synths were patched for their perspective parts with CV modulating their volumes from the *Akai MPC X*.

Three patches were programmed for the Xenomorph voice on the *Korg MS2000*. Each utilizing the Korg's distortion. Dual patches were used to mix breathing noise and throat noise with velocities. [0:24], [1:53], [3:21]

The second part 'The Feast', is anchored by a groove using syncopated bass notes on the ASM Hydrasynth and percussive embilishments using AFX-MODE on the *Novation BassStation II*. Note: 4-5 stacked BassStations w/AFX-MODE would make an incredible sounding percussion synthesizer.

The Korg Radias is always present with its flexible 16 voice drum kit filled with various bottom frequencies, mid and high filtered noises layered and mixed with various modulations to make all sorts of lovely percussions [3:30]. Vocal 'Ahhs' embelish the suspensful parts [3:46], [4:45].

Dave Smith Instruments Prophet REV2 filled in a number of spaces, most notably the drama strings at [4:36] with the Roland JP-8080.

Eight patches were staged for use in the first half on the *Roland System-1M*. Its fidelity cuts through very nicely. I was suprised by the sound coming out of it despite the generic sounding filter. The oscillators and overall fidelity is excellent.

The Korg Minilogue and Minilogue XD take turns playing bass as well as other parts throughout. Always useful and never disappointing. The Minilogue is permanently coupled with the Drawmer DL241's gate to manage its noise.

Engine drones were provided by the Sequential Prophet 6*. It also provided additional syncopated notes with the *Hydrasynth in the last 3rd.

The delicious sounds coming from the Arturia MiniFreak was on stage throughout. Liberal use of its two macro modulations over MIDI CC-117, CC-118.

ASM Hydrasynth - Experimental Generative Plucks

video upload by Scott McAuley Sounds & Synthesis

"Diving into the generative side of the Hydrasynth and loving it, this patch utilises the arp in a very slow tempo, then LFO 5 as step sequencer, generating random pitch changes to Osc 4, LFO 5 also triggers Envelope 5, which triggers the filter cutoff.

Various other LFO's and Looped Envelopes to add changes to the filter envelope decay and release times, also to randomly change the time signature of the arp (hence the deliberate drifting out of sync then drifting back in again) it's an addictive type of synthesis and one that really brings some happy/lucky finds.

Pad is OB6 through some bigsky, Piano Is Keyscape, drums are various samples put together for quick video.

I will do some tutorials on this once I have become more adapt at it :)

Just getting to know this beauty at the moment, but wow, the programming possibilities with this beast are huge!

This patch is utilising LFO's to trigger Envelopes, triggered by note values, and triggered by arp, comes to a life of its own when sustain pedal is held down.

Amazing machine! I'm gonna have fun with this one! :)

Ashun Sound Machines ASM Hydrasynth Desktop Synthesizer

via this auction

Kind of interesting ASM added the logo on the power supply. Extra bit of detail and an extra cost for an already relatively affordable synthesizer. Curious how many other synths have logo'd power supplies.

ASM Hydrasynth - Sound Bank '79 - Vintage Patches

video upload by Polydata

"A bank of 50 patches for the ASM Hydrasynth drawing inspiration from synthesizer sounds found in documentaries and library music from the late 70’s and early 80’s. The goal was to squeeze as much analog juice out of this synth as possible, primarily working within the constraints of synthesizers of that era. Making these patches took quite some work, but I didn't want to stop until the sounds really embodied the tone and feel of vintage synths.

These patches are made for instant inspiration. I spent a lot of time creating these so you can just turn on the synth and get to work. They sound great on their own, or you can use them as a starting point to tweak for any scenario.
