u he Hive Science 2

Howard Scarr and Kevin Schroeder team up again for Hive Science 2, 350 presets full of style and high impact. The soundset revisits and expands on ideas from the original Hive Science. More epic pads, more stomping rhythms, more modern leads, more pensive textures, more thumping basses… more of everything.

Hive Science 2 puts the sound design expertise of Howard and Kevin at your fingertips. Dive into the analogue recreations from Howard, the cinematic styles from Kevin, and the results of their collaborations.

With maximum playability via realtime performance controls and Hive’s incredible audio engine, Hive Science 2 is full of fresh and vibrant sonic possibilities.

The soundset is available for purchase for $39 USD + VAT in EU.

A new public beta of the Diva virtual analog synthesizer is also available now.

We are close to wrapping up work on the next Diva update, but would appreciate some final testing before release.

The 1.4.2 update contains a number of bug fixes and improvements, the most notable being the rewritten VST3 support. Also new: a Move to trash option for the preset browser, +/-48 semitone pitch bend ranges, and a couple of GUI tweaks.

Please read the complete list of changes, download the update and add your feedback at our forum.
