NerdMcBoon Sound has announced the release of Transformations, a soundset featuring 38 presets for the Diva virtual analog synthesizer by u-he.
Diva is meant to be a “Dinosaur impersonating virtual analog” synth, in other words: it’s meant to emulate sounds from the past.
With this soundset, I tried to check out what the boundaries of Diva’s relatively simple synthesis structure are, to come up with unique presets which go beyond classic analog sounds. Once you dive deeper into Diva’s synthesis possibilities, she has quite a few tricks up her sleeve! I tried to use these tricks to tweak every preset as much as possible.
The result is a small set of 38 presets that contains very elaborate sounds, which still have the lush sound of classic analog synths, but are not limited by their limitations.
As a contrast, I also included a few classic presets, which still use some of Diva’s more advanced capabilities to make them sound as good as possible.
The soundset is available for purchase for 6 EUR.
