Xenos Soundworks has announced the release of a new sound pack for u-he’s Hive 2 software synthesizer.

Neon Nights features 110 retro-inspired presets.

In our opinion, Hive is THE best synth for getting THAT special hard-hitting, uptempo Synthwave/Outrun sound right out of the box – fully ’80s’ in character, but with a modern coloration added, and without the limitations of vintage hardware.

Also included are 16 new wavetables which several patches make use of. Each patch has, at a minimum, the modwheel assigned for increased expression and playability.

Neon Nights is available to purchase for $14.95 USD at the Xenos Soundworks store and from distributor ADSR Sounds.
