Hive release date & pricing

Hive 1.0 is ready to share with the world — the release date is set for June 2nd!


We wanted to let you know about a small update to the release plan for Hive. Normally, we extend the introductory price for a couple of weeks after release, but with the recent addition of a reseller program we needed to make some changes. On release day the $99 (+VAT in the EU) introductory price ends and the regular price will be $149 (+VAT in the EU).

To make sure that you have the chance to get Hive for $99 before it changes, between now and June 2nd (12:00PM midday Berlin time) you can buy and download the Hive ‘release candidate’. This version is the same as Hive 1.0 that will be publicly available on June 2nd. All presets, features and bug fixes included. The only difference between the two versions is the price!

Presswerk 1.1 out!

Presswerk 1.1 is now available as a free update for Mac OS X and Windows. With Presswerk version 1.1 we added six new UI views – dedicated, streamlined versions of the interface to help you focus on a specific task and speed up your workflow. The six views are:

  • Drum Compressor
  • Vocal Compressor
  • M/S Program Compressor
  • Easy Compressor
  • Bus Compressor
  • Limiter

Presswerk 1.1 also introduces a preferences window where global options can be stored, and a MIDI learn screen to simplify MIDI mapping. Finally, we fixed a few small bugs.

To update Presswerk to version 1.1, simply download and install over your existing version.

Musikmesse 2015 Pictures

We put together a few photos and a short time lapse movie to share a little bit of our time at the Frankfurt Musikmesse. It was great to meet everyone in person, catch up with old friends and talk about synths, effects, music and everything else.

u-he at MusikMesse 2015

Once again, u-he is heading to Frankfurt for MusikMesse. This year the entire office will be packing up the van and showing off our wares. We look forward to seeing everybody there, so why not come on over to Hall 5.1, stand B82 and say "hi"!

We will be out of the office from Monday April 13 until Monday April 20. During this week customer service and email support will be extremely limited and slower than normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
