u-he Hive review at Music Radar

A product from

Is this new soft synth a Sylenth1 slayer?

The formidable u-he has confidently stepped into the ring with an all-new new synth boasting an extremely similar architecture, plus a few enticing extras to sweeten the deal. The main difference between Hive (VST/AU/ AAX) and Sylenth1 is its oscillators. Whereas Sylenth1 has four oscillators, each capable of up to eight-voice unison detune, Hive has two, each running up to 16-voice unison.

Verdict:

  • u-he's elegant masterpiece is easily the best choice for anyone looking for a straightforward, fat-sounding, and future-proof virtual analogue synth.

​Pros:

  • Choice of synth engines. Tons of excellent, categorised presets. Superb contemporary sound. Great filters and effects. Link feature is handy. More powerful synthesis than Sylenth1.

Cons:

  • Limited number of waveforms.

Rating:  5/5 Stars
