u-he launches Hive synth plugin preview + pre-order

u-he has launched a preview version of its Hive synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

u-he Hive

We are taking the wraps off a new synth – Hive. What is Hive? Think sleek, low CPU use, “super” sounding synth with a streamlined workflow. We wanted to make a synth that was fast, fluid, light on CPU but still had a heavyweight sound.

There are lots of features packed into the single page interface to make your sound design quick and intuitive – drag and drop modulation, solo buttons, parameter linking and much more.

Hive is now available for download as a public beta. We are putting the finishing touches on Hive and this is your chance to give some feedback and help us get ready for release.

The public beta is available to download for Windows and Mac from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

Hive is available for purchase now for $99 USD ex VAT while it is in public beta (regular $149 USD ex VAT). The serial number works with both the beta version and the final released version.

Tracktion releases Master Mix plugin

Tracktion DSP has announced the release of Master Mix, a professional stereo mastering plugin that offers multi-band dynamics processing and equalization.

Tracktion Master Mix

It has three individual dynamics processors, each with its own set of controls and selectable crossover points. It also has two separate six-band parametric EQs, one located before the dynamics section, and the other after.

Each dynamics band is typically used as a compressor, but expansion is also possible. An intuitive dynamics contour edit screen provides easy setup of your compressor parameters and allows you to create the perfect soft knee curve. Master Mix also offers a simple to use noise gate and a soft-clip limiter.

With intuitive screens and controls, Master Mix promises to be one of your most invaluable tools. It can take your projects to new heights.

Master Mix is available for purchase for $59.99 USD. An introductory 50% discount is available for a limited time.
