Waveformless Soundware has released DIVA Prima, a collection of sounds for the DIVA virtual analog synthesizer by u-he.
DIVA Prima is a testiment to the flexibilty of u-he’s creation. Chunky Minimoog basses, Kraftwerkian synth percussion and drums, raspy mono-leads, lush Solina-like synth strings, massive, Jupiter-esque pads, delicate, glassy plucks, and even digital, FM-type sounds. On top of that, we’ve included some sound-alike patches. Need the resonant synth sound from Yaz’s “Only You”? We’ve got it here. Need the famous Yamaha TX81Z “Latelybass” preset? We’ve got a pretty convincing version of that, too. Gary Numan-esque strings? Gotcha covered. But we don’t stop there. Amidst all of the beautiful sounds are their ugly cousins, using crossmod, filter FM, and other unusual techniques to give you startlingly original and edgy sounds sure to stand out in a mix.
As per our usual standard, sounds are deeply programmed with almost all of them having a modulation or two mapped to them for even more expressive playing. Oh, and in addition to the 128 awesome sounds you already get? We threw in an extra “INIT” type patch for free to act as a starting point for your own sonic creations.
The soundset is available to purchase for $9.99 USD. A demo bank with 10 patches is available to download.
