Hybrid Tools Terminus overview
8Dio Terminus is a pro-grade tool designed for epic blockbuster scores and trailers containing over 1,200 custom cinematic instruments and FX.
The sound of Terminus is big, modern and studio clean with everything mastered to perfection.
Terminus is the result of over 18 months of deep production and contains four different types of core instrument groups, Percussive/Drums, Epic/Hybrid, Neo-Orchestral and Synth-Based. All four core groups each contain seven banks, Hits, Slams, Sub Hits, Short and Long Falls, and Short and Long Risers.
In addition Terminus contains an array of new instrument categories, including 4 banks of Ear Candy. Ear Candy is designed to enhance your existing compositions with big, beautiful, ethereal and angelic textural elements. We also created two additional banks of Strums. Strums are tonal and a-tonal transitional elements – creating a transparent, colorful movement of cinematic textures.
Terminus also includes a deep and exclusive 4K Master Class with Troels Folmann. Troels goes through his: “The Captain” demo track by track. We have also added both project midi file and audio stems. The 4K Master Class is exclusive to Terminus and is not available online.
Terminus also comes fully ready for integration into the sound file management system of your choice with industry standard embedded Meta-Data.
The Next Stop
Terminus represents the next step in our journey to create the ultimate series of contemporary sound effects and scoring tools. From the transients of the striking Hits to the show stopping Slams and earth shaking Subs. To the varying lengths of cascading Falls and tension of the building Risers – Terminus is unapologetically epic. Also included is the never before heard category Ear Candy, which stems from countless hours of dissecting which sounds from high-end productions resonate with us most.
One of the most powerful features within Terminus is the ability to instantly alter the sound by Stacking individual layers, Reversing playback or by chromatically Stretching a selected sound. The Stretch feature allows you to take the last sampled played and stretch it across the keyboard allowing you to play the one sample at different pitches. Combining this with the Stack and Reverse features enables you to create a range of custom and complex sounds with just a few quick clicks. Sweeten with our advanced Chaos Effects on top and create a sound that’s perfect for your production.

Built-In Chaos FX
Terminus contains our custom rack effects system. These Chaos Effects allow you to shape your sound in any way imaginable. Whether it’s creating movement and modulation within the sound using the dual Phaser and Flanger module, dialling in precise tonal changes with the inbuilt EQ, applying Bit Crusher & Distortion, using the unique Dual Delays or creating space and rhythmic pulses with the layered Convolution Reverbs.
The included range of Impulse Responses allow you to create Textural Convolution patterns. These are rhythmic phrases that lay over the existing sound that when coupled with the dual delay and spacious convolution reverb allow the shaping of your very own sound.
Terminus comes embedded with deep Meta-Data tagging, allowing you to search through the files directly using your sound file manager of choice. This means key words such as Fall, Downer, Riser, Hit etc can be used to locate and identify matching files making finding the right sound easy.
At 44.1kHz / 24 Bit WAV format all the sounds within this library are drag and drop ready. Making production within or outside the Kontakt format seamless and perfect for composers, sound designers and editors alike.
For the first time ever we are giving you unrestricted access to the compositional process. Take a look behind scenes and enjoy learning the tips and tricks used in modern hybrid production. From the full MIDI files and individual track stems to an almost hour long in-depth one-on-one tutorial on the making of “The Captain” by Troels Folmann.
