u-he has updated the public beta of the Hive synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

u-he Hive Rev3453

Because the public beta serial ran out today, we’ve uploaded a new revision 3453 of Hive! Simply download from links below and install over your current Hive.

Currently it looks like I need about two weeks of concentrated work to fix bugs and implement certain features into their final shape. The emphasize is on “concentrated work” since there was too much going on to really concentrate lately. When pretty much the whole staff (less me) of u-he goes on vacation after Musikmesse I think I’ll finally find that time. Fingers crossed!
