Wizoo, the developer of Steinberg’s Hypersonic virtual music workstation, unveiled the first three extensions for Hypersonic. Each of these Hyper modules endows Hypersonic with yet another fully featured software instrument; Hyper Modules integrate into Hypersonic’s sound-generating, ensuring users enjoy functional breadth and depth at an affordable price.

Priced at $99 each, US-1 Ultra Synth, GP-2 Grand Pianos and NB-3 Tonewheel Organ are now available directly at

In addition, Wizoo is offering two packages for a limited time only-: all three Hyper Modules for $249 and the Hypersonic XXL Bundle featuring Hypersonic and all three Hyper Modules for $555.

Designed to cover a specific range of sounds, each Hyper Module offers a rich selection of patches. In addition, all Hyper Modules may be combined with legacy Hypersonic elements to further augment the instrument’s scope of sound-sculpting options.

This first collection of Hyper Modules comprises numerous instruments, including the US-1 Ultra Synth, a fully programmable analog/digital synthesizer featuring three oscillators with analog waveforms, wavetable synthesis, Sync and Unison modes, a multimode filter offering audio modulation via oscillator and overdrive, three envelopes, three LFOs, a modulation matrix, an epert editor for in-depth sound parameter tweaking and 256 patches created by pro sound designers.

Also included are the GP-2 Grand Pianos, which are designed to spare system capacity and power. Two virtual grand pianos offer authenticity and detail in the tradition of the VST instrument, The Grand. Offering adjustable timbre and velocity curve, each piano comes in three sizes.

The NB-3 Tonewheel Organ is a hyper-module that brings the legendary organs and rotary cabinets of the ’50s back to life with a sonic spectrum ranging from monstrous, house-approved low end to ’70s-style lead sounds. Nine drawbars, various tone wheel emulations (from "new" to "old and ratty"), adjustable key click and a virtual rotary cabinet offering tube overdrive and variable speed are onboard. The NB-3’s 64 preset patches are by Peter Gorges.
