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

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.

u-he has released public beta rev 3169 of Presswerk, the dynamics effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
We’ve been working really hard on this. Here’s a new beta of Presswerk, with a vast number of improvements and most niggles fixed.
But also, after reading all the feedback and carefully weighing pros and cons, we decided to rework the usability concept. This meant dropping the “vintage views” we had in the first beta.
Changes in Presswerk rev 3169
- Redesigned workflow.
- Repositioned HQ button (main LCD panel).
- Added Whole-State Undo (undo for accidental mode or preset changes).
- Added stuff to the manual.
- Improved latency reporting to Host.
- Changed BOTH to LINK (non-destructive behavior) and added a Parameter Feedback Overlay.
- Renamed ANLG button to DPR (DUAL PHASE ROTATION).
- ‘SHIFT + knob’ on Dry:Wet, Int:Ext & percentage knobs now shows fine resolution in data display.
- Many fixes.
The new public beta is available to download from the u-he forum and KVR Audio. The plug-in is already available to purchase at a 30% discount during the beta period.
