A product from

Plugin Boutique Staff Picks - Simon

u-he have released an all-new, supercharged version of their award-winning synthesizer, Hive. Featuring powerful modulation capabilities and a brand new interface, Hive 2 is a streamlined synth that doesn’t sacrifice on audio quality.

Best Feature

'Scope' Section

Hive is a powerful 2-oscillator synthesizer, characterised by its iconic honeycomb-shaped central display unit. In version 2, the interface maintains the same well-known layout but with some improvements. The central visualiser now contains a ‘Scope’ section where up to 4 modulation parameters can be visualized for real-time feedback. This is accessible through the new drag and drop functionality, where parameters can be dropped directly into the modulation matrix for instant setup, without the need for complex routing. This is incredibly useful for visualising exactly what you're doing to your sound in real-time.

u-he have done an incredible job of building on a classic synthesizer, introducing modulation options that give it an impressive new degree of control. Coupled with the stunning interface, this is now a synthesizer that deserves a place in any serious music maker’s instrument collection.
