These are the r.h+ and r.hx waveforms for the l=2, m=2 and m=-2 modes generated by a generic BBH merger with mass ratio q=m_{1}/m_{2}~0.8 and spin magnitudes S_{1}/m_{1}^{2}~0.6 and S_{2}/m_{2}^{2}~0.4. The full numerical simulation started with the black holes at an intial separation of R=11M and the system performs nearly 9 orbits prior to merger. More details in the paper [1]

We also Matched this NR waveforms to 3.5PN waveforms to produce a nearly 24000M long wavetrain. These are labeled as 'hybrid' and the files contain time, the real and imaginary parts of the l=2, m=2 and m=-2 modes, called respectively HYB22 and HYB2-2.
