New Soundset for Diva - Performer

Deform soundset

Performer is a new soundset for Diva to enhance your keyboard playing, created by our own Howard Scarr. Each preset takes advantage of up to 5 controls (velocity, breath, bender, aftertouch, modulation) that transform the sound for full musical expression.


At home in the recording studio or on stage, the 130 instruments are designed to wow any audience. Show Diva your best performance.

The event runs May 28-29 at the Bunker in Torino. Full details and timetable on the Synth Meeting website.

Impressions from Superbooth16

We returned from Superbooth16 with so many impressions. Under the magnificent ‘50s architecture of the Funkhaus Berlin we chatted with customers, mingled with other developers, caught up with old friends and enjoyed an absinthe or two in the afternoon sun. The event was a wonderful collision of synthesizers, concerts, presentations and technology—it felt more like a festival than a trade show.


The whole u-he team had a fantastic time, and we are eager for Superbooth17 next year.

RePro-Alpha Available

RePro-alpha

Our latest "researchware" plug-in RePro-Alpha is ready. It's a first step in our recreation of the classic Sequential Circuits Pro-One monophonic synthesizer.


This free alpha version is a way for us to gather feedback on various filter models which will help us decide on the best implementation for the final version.


Please download RePro-Alpha, play with it, try the different filter models stuff, build an opinion, and then vote in this thread. Take your time and think about what differences you hear in the filter models and under what settings do hear the differences discuss.


More details and downloads.
