Synapse Auduio has updated its Hydra versatile synthesizer plugin for Windows and Mac to version 1.4.

The Hydra is a multi-model synthesizer, features three different routing models, each with three oscillators. Each routing model combines the three oscillators in different ways, by phase modulation or ring modulation – and each model has radically different possibilities.
