u-he has announced maintenance updates for two of its plugins.

Version 1.2.1 of the Hive synthesizer and version 1.1.4 of the Presswerk compressor include various bug fixes and an improved Mac installer.

In the days after we posted the RC 8256, we started to receive a number of reports from Mac users who suddenly had issues with permissions in the user library locations. Those very likely caused by recent Apple security updates.

So we decided to delay the Hive 1.2.1 release, and added measures to the Mac installer to repair such broken permissions. This should work for most of those permission problems. There might be an occasional edge case which the installer simply can’t fix. But in such a rare case, we can help the user to fix the issue manually (quick and painless).

Changes in Hive v1.2.1

  • Fixed locale issue which caused scripts to not load on some Linux systems.
  • Fixed rare issue causing clicks on note release in left channel.
  • Fixed wrong frame count for stereo wavetable samples.
  • Fixed wavetable info (disappeared if apostrophe was used).
  • Fixed automatic loading of scripts while being edited.
  • Fixed scripting error messages.
  • Windows installer now includes “Hive Wavetables.pdf”.
  • Improved semitone knob scaling.
  • Mac installer improved to prevent permission issues.

Changes in Presswerk v1.1.4

  • Fixed latency compensation in Cubase (now works on host start/stop).
  • Fixed latency compensation issue with plugin bypass.
  • Fixed latency compensation issue with side chain monitoring.
  • Fixed Limiter View punchy mode DPR being wrongly switched off when going back to Main View.
  • Mac installer improved to prevent permission issues.

The updates are now available from the u-he website.
