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

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 19, 2014 sticky - comment 1 comment

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.

Rob Papen releases RAW synthesizer plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Rob Papen has launched RAW, a new synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Rob Papen RAW

At the Dutch Dancefair 2014, DJ Promo (aka producer Sebastian Hoff) and DJ Free-K (aka producer Freek Vergoossen) approached Rob Papen with the idea of a synthesiser that focused more on ‘distorted’ sounds with an easy to use layout.

Renowned for delivering fresh, cutting edge and musical plugins for producers, Rob Papen invited the DJs to his studio for a brainstorming session resulting in a list of ‘must have’ features and tools for a brand new synth. Armed with this list and several more brainstorming sessions later, Rob Papen and his development team created a powerful new virtual synth RAW.
RAW has two oscillators each with an X/Y field, (as included in Blade and BLUEII) to distort the waveform using Phase Distortion. But that’s not all, you can also draw two of your own ‘waveforms’ and use them as LFO waveforms enabling the creation of unique ‘wobble’ movements that are perfect for for DubStep and other electronic music styles.

RAW has all the great Rob Papen filters to shape your sound further, but in a refreshing twist, ‘EQ’, ‘Waveshaper’, ‘Distortion’ and ‘LoFi’ have also been added on a voice synthesis level. Other FX such as Chorus, Phaser, Flanger, Stereo delay and the amazing HQ Reverb of Rob Papen can all be added to your sound and of course, the cool Arpeggiator/Sequencer, Easypage and preset bank manager have all been included as standard.

In true Rob Papen style, RAW comes with many great presets with mainly contributions from several well known DJs and Producers for instant user inspiration!
Promo, Ophidian, Mad dog, Deathmachine, D-Passion, Rob Fabrie, DJ Thera, N-Vitral, Tha Playah, DJ Hidden, The Viper, Warface and many more…

RAW for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of 119 EUR/$143 USD until December 31st, 2014 (regular 149 EUR/$179 USD).

RAW is now also included in the eXplorer-III bundle, bringing the total of included plug-ins to 13. The bundle is available for 585 EUR/$699 USD (~50% savings on individual plugins).
