The new soundset Deform is now available for Diva. Diva is known for it's authentic emulation of vintage synthesizers, but Deform pushes past any preconceived notions about what Diva should sound like. Sound designer Kyhon has created over 500 presets of beautifully fractured pads, modular effects, texture elements and experimental glitches. Explore these strange, captivating sonic possibilities as Deform pushes Diva to it's most extreme.

Protoverb 1.0

Protoverb

Protoverb is an experimental reverb based on the idea of a "room simulator". Most algorithmic reverbs try to avoid resonances or model the reflections of sound from a rooms walls. Protoverb does the opposite. It builds up as many room resonances as possible, modeling the body of air in the room. It therefore does not need to modulate or colour the signal. The result is a very natural sounding reverbration with some interesting features: Long standing frequencies resonate louder, as if the air takes some time to get excited. Multiple instruments don't mash into a diffuse mud, they stay distinct. If you play a short melody, the room seems to repeat a ghost echo of that melody. Those properties are indeed found in churches and large halls, but they're rarely found in conventional algorithmic reverbs.

Diva is NKS-ready

Diva NKS compatible

We are excited to release v1.4.1 of Diva which adds compatibility for Native Instruments' new Native Kontrol Standard (NKS). The NKS format allows Diva to be integrated with Maschine and Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards.


For this update we:

  • tagged and categorised all of Diva's factory patches. Now all of Diva's patches are available while browsing in Maschine or Komplete Kontrol, and you can easily save your own patches in NKS format from within Diva.
  • defined custom control knob mappings for Diva's entire factory patch library. With Maschine and S-Series keyboards, each patch loads a custom performance page with the most important parameters immediately available. And if you need more control, each Diva module has its own page where more parameters are accessible. Adjust the oscillators, filter, envelopes and effects. No setup required.

The integration between Diva and Maschine or Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards means you can easily find what you need and focus on making music.


Download Diva 1.4.1 for Mac OS X
Download Diva 1.4.1 for Windows


This is a free update for Diva owners and can be installed over existing versions.
