Digidesign Forms New Research Group

Digidesign’s Advanced Instrument Research group is a new division dedicated to creating virtual instruments purpose-built for the Pro Tools environment. The group showcased two new virtual instruments at this year’s NAMM convention: the Xpand!™ sound factory workstation and the Hybrid analog/digital high-definition synthesizer.

Xpand! is a free RTAS sound factory workstation plug-in that provides fast, efficient ways to access and manipulate thousands of high-quality sounds directly from within Pro Tools. Hybrid is an RTAS software synthesizer for Pro Tools systems that combines the warmth of legendary analog synths from the ’70s with a full range of 21st-century analog and digital capabilities.
