High Sierra (Mac OS X 10.13) Compatibility

Apple's newest version of the macOS, High Sierra (10.13), is now available. We have been testing our plug-ins for compatibility with the help of some of customers. While our plug-ins work with High Sierra, we have identified a few issues:

  • Presets are not listed in alphabetical order. The introduction of a new file system in macOS High Sierra causes presets to be unsorted.
  • After installing any u-he plug-in you will need to reboot your computer for the plug-in to work.
  • AU plug-ins do not load in GarageBand. This seems to affect u-he plug-ins as well as other companies.

We are working to make all our plug-ins compatible with High Sierra, if you have any questions please contact our support team.

New Soundset: Atmos

Join Bujlin as he travels through spaces, both the real and the fantastical with Atmos, a new soundset for Diva. All 128 presets in this collection of arpeggios, leads, pads and ambient effects are permeated with a sense of space. Conjure outer space, empty buildings or windswept fields.

Bjulin created the pure sounds to be sophisticated from the start, but applying Diva's built-in effects thoughtfully, he manage to highlight each unique atmosphere and ambience.
