u-he has released public beta Rev 3225 of its Presswerk dynamics effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Updated again: Rev 3225 (December 9th) adds presets by Bob Humid and 3ee, marks last milestone before release candidate.
This version also adds a skin without “shadow parameters”. Some people found the red glows that depict the invisible parameter states confusing. We would like to know if not seeing them is easier to work with before we decide how to go on, i.e. which alternatives to present.
We’ve also fixed a lot of issues, I’ll update this post once we got the final list.
The latest public beta of Presswerk is available to download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio. The plug-in is available for purchase at a 30% discount during the public beta.

3ee Sound Design has released Pro Series: Vintage Keyboards, a free soundset for the Zebra 2 software synthesizer by u-he.
Vintage Keyboards is an attempt to accurately model some of the most popular and beloved electromechanical keyboards resulting in a clean and responsive blend, capturing more or less the good and “bad” magical essences that made the original models so famous.
The clean, unaltered direct signal was sought after as the main reference in creating these instruments giving you the capability to easily alter them with DSP however you like.
The soundset is a free download. Donations are appreciated.

3ee Sound Design has announced the release of Aesthetics, a soundset for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer by u-he.
Aesthetics is a collection of 64 instruments for the great u-he Diva synthesizer. The basic idea of creating diverse, solid and playable, sweet-spot instruments that were tweaked to perfection with no particular genre or style in mind was very effective.
All instruments within this collection were created by 3ee and were optimized with modulation wheel and pressure controls. (exception, no control assignments for the Poly_String Chest2 patch)
The Aesthetics soundset is available to purchase at the price you want to pay ($7 USD mimimum). A free demo pack is available to download from the product page.

3ee has announced a collection of patches for u-he’s free Tyrell Nexus 6 software synthesizer for Windows and Mac.
u-he’s Tyrell Nexus 6 with 80’s skin by nBeat.
Been a while since I’ve released something so… here it is:
Vaseline for u-he TyrellN6 (version 2)
Mainly thick, greasy, “sweetspot” as well as “modern” bass and lead patches. Try MW and AT, almost all patches have them assigned.
Well, I hope you’ll enjoy this small(20+), but classy collection… and even though I have Diva, TyrellN6 is sure keeping me company a little while longer too!
Download the Vaseline soundset here.

3ee wrote in to share the news about Collector, a free collection of sounds for the Zebra 2 software synthesizer by u-he.
I finally finished the Collector’s patch bank for Zebra 2.5.2 (or higher).
The patch bank features a good share of almost everything and it’s not limited to any particular style or genre. 50 patches + 10 bonus patches + one txt file
Hope you’ll enjoy the patches as much as I did creating them!
The Collector soundset for Zebra is available to download at no cost.
