About Ibrido Zero
Custom Sample Manipulation Tool
Ever since we released our very first “Ibrido” instrument we’ve been inundated with one specific user request; to allow sample import. Now, although this sounds like a very simple idea, we wanted to run with the concept and take it to the extreme. So we opened up our toolbox and began to strip down the Ibrido engine to its component parts. Then after a little rummaging under the hood, we rebuilt it into a completely blank canvas, ripe for populating with your own samples.
It’s easy to drag and drop your samples into Ibrido Zero - up to a total number of 360. You can even import multiple samples at the same time, just by selecting a group of samples and dragging them into the phrase picker screen. There are categories and banks so you can create themed collections for easy organisation and recall them once imported. The interface will show the sample names and length, with options for renaming categories, banks and individual samples.
All of the preview, automation and randomisation options are here, so with just a click or two, you can twist your own familiar samples into mutated sounds, with complex transformations.
We, at Sonokinetic BV, introduce Ibrido Zero to you with pride and would like to invite you to jump in. We can’t wait to hear the amazing things you, our valued customer base, will produce with it.
Left is the main interface for Ibrido Zero. Almost every aspect of the instrument can be changed either by clicking on the appropriate part of the interface or using hardware dials via NKS mapping. The interface will look different depending if you have engaged Zen Mode or if you wish to Show All Controls.
Two Ways To Play - Zen Mode & Show All Controls
Ibrido Zero is an instrument for letting your creativity run wild and sometimes it helps not to have to think about too many controls. For this reason we’ve created two different ways to play: Zen Mode and Show All Controls. Clicking the legends at the bottom of the interface will switch between these play modes.
In Zen Mode all but the most vital controls will be hidden. Here you can still perform some of the most common functions of Ibrido Zero; choose samples, randomize, set start position, key ranges and adjust play modes and looping.
Use the Show All Controls mode to gain access to the deeper controls of the instrument in addition to the Zen Mode controls; setting attack and release times, automation for volume, panning, pitch, reverb, oomph, delay, distortion, sparkle, cutoff and resonance.
Importing Samples & Phrase Picker
Ibrido Zero can play up to 4 samples simultaneously in 4 slots.
The difference between Ibrido Zero and other instruments from the same family is that you can import your own samples, up to a total of 360, spread across 4 categories and 3 banks per category. To import a sample or choose to replace an existing sample into the phrase picker, click the + icon at the top left of each slot. This will open a phrase picker. Phrases are split into categories and banks. Drag your own samples into anywhere you see drag your samples here.
You can rename a category, bank or sample with your own label for easy identification. Just CMD / CTRL + click on the name:
Once imported, the phrase picker will display the file names of the samples and length in seconds. Press the ► play button to preview a short snippet of each phrase and click the phrase name to assign the phrase to a slot. To remove a slot entirely just hit the - button at the top right of the slot.
Only available in Show All Controls mode, the automation tables give precise control over how phrases play back using a variety of parameters. You can choose 4 different parameters for each instance of Ibrido Zero. Pick 4 from the following 10 parameters: volume, panning, pitch, reverb, oomph, delay, distortion, sparkle, cutoff and resonance.
Choose which parameter the tables modify by clicking the legends at the bottom of the interface or the cog on the left hand side:
You can draw freehand in the automation table as shown here - just use your mouse pointer.
It’s also possible to use the sliders at the right hand side of the interface to set levels, size, duration and offset of the automation shapes. This can be a huge time saver when you quickly want to create some smooth automation. Users of Komplete Kontrol hardware will find that these sliders are also mapped to the dials of your device.
Use the buttons shown here to cycle the automation shapes available and use CMD / CTRL + click to randomize.
To reset all automation for single slot, click the eraser icon.
Play direction and method is controlled by the arrow icon at the right of each slot.
Forward, backwards and loop modes do exactly what you’d expect them to, playing the sample forwards, in reverse and looping respectively.
Pingpong mode will play the sample first forwards, then in reverse.
Release trigger will play the sample only on release of a key - best use for short samples only.
Forward (resume position) will play the sample forwards on a keypress. When the key is released the engine will pause playback of the sample until another key is pressed, where the sample will resume playback from the same position.
NB - In order to help with consistency in DAW playback when using forward (resume position) mode we have assigned a keyswitch at MIDI C7 to reset the playback position to default start position.
Set loop positions in Zen Mode ONLY. Drag in the upper part of the phrase waveform to set the end loop point. Drag in the lower part of the waveform to set the start loop point.
To reset the loop settings, click the eraser icon.
The thin line underneath each slot represents the playback start position of the phrase. Drag the small arrow to adjust the start position.
Setting Key Ranges
The default key range for all slots is MIDI C-1 to B6. The key range for each slot can be adjusted easily. Simply click the legend and you’ll see waiting for note input displayed. Press two keys on the keyboard to define the upper and lower notes for the range. The keyboard colors will change to reflect your chosen note ranges.
To reset the key range click the eraser icon.
Attack and Release
Attack and release times for each performance can be set with the two sliders at the left hand side of each slot.
By default the attack and release times are linked together so that when you adjust one, all others adjust in the same way. Click the link / untick icon to change this behaviour enabling each slot to have different attack and release times set up.
The instrument comes complete with many different options for randomization. Roll your mouse over the IBRIDO Zero heading to see a pop-up of the most useful randomization functions.
Click the ‘R’ in IBRIDO to reset all modulation tables to default
CMD / CTRL + click ‘R’ will randomize all modulation tables
Click the ‘O’ in IBRIDO to randomize all phrases
CMD / CTRL + click ‘O’ will randomize all phrases and all modulation tables
Playing Ibrido Zero
The basic method of playing Ibrido Zero is to play on the key ranges indicated - don’t forget you’ll need to import some samples first! These ranges will vary in color and trigger different phrases depending on which ranges you have set up. See page 12 for more details on this.
Use your keyboard’s MOD wheel to live play the volume of the instrument.
By default the MOD wheel of your MIDI keyboard will control the output volume of all of the pattern slots. Individual volume controls for each slot can be found within the Volume automation tables of the Show All Controls mode.
