Hive: lightweight synth, heavyweight sound. Sleek, streamlined and super fast. Hive was built for speed. An effortless workflow, low cpu use and a single page interface means you can build your tracks in no time. Being ‘fast and simple’ does not mean sacrificing sound quality or creative control. Hive is packed with features, controls and enough flexibility to deliver stunning sounds. A lightweight synth with a heavyweight sound.

Hive 1.2.1 maintenance update

Hi everyone,

we are about to release a small maintenance update for Hive.

Besides the issue which led to some wavetables not loading on certain Linux machines, we fixed some more glitches in the wavetable section.
Scripts will now automatically reload when you edit and resave them.
And the wavetable hexagon should display error messages if there is something wrong in the code section of the wavetable file.
Last but not least, we finally found out what caused those clicks in the left channel when using odd buffer sizes and certain audio interfaces.

With all those fixes, we thought it might be good to give you a sneak peek prior to the official release, so you can check if the bugs are really fixed, and nothing else got broke.

Did Zippy cut bandwith? I just had at most 500kB/s. But you can use Downloadhelper like FF browseraddon DownthemAll! to add 10 servers per downlad, to get in toatal around 3,5MB/s.

With the tremendous success from Sylenth1 and its close to 2'000 commercial soundbanks available, a quick answer was required: a sylenth1 clone, super light on the cpu, a bunch of effects, and let's start making money.

And so CLONE, i mean, Hive was born.

They didn't need something too complicated. No. Just a synth capable of making some classic lead sounds, plucks, arps...

With 2'700 presets available, people will spend a god time previewing those sounds. This could have been a 79€ synth... but because it's a sylenth1 clone, and sylenth costs 200 bucks, uhe had to sell this for much more. NORMAL.
  Resident 28.01.2016 3 606
That's nonsense. It would mean that any synth maker would have been successful when making a clone of an already well established synth that TONS of people made (and still make) presets for.
If people were already using sylenth in their projects and already owned it, there wouldn't have been any reason to switch to another synth that, as you suggest, is a clone.

But that's far from true, if your knowledge goes beyond the appearance you would know that hive has much more to offer than just being a simple replica.
Just to name few things, there are three different sound colouring type, filter routing is much more flexible, unison management is different (tied to main osc vs free), different phase type (flow), different, hive doesn't have oscillator inv, in hive you can link filter behaviour to other parameters, sylenth has filter drive, hive has vibrato for osc groups (in sylenth you have to do it manually with lfo, wasting one of the two lfo modulators just for that), in hive you can change fx order, and so on and on. A narrow minded person would think that these are just minor things, but in the greater picture these things add up and make Hive a different synth. Anyone that used both of them for long enough to formulate an experience-based opinion would see that.

Furthermore now hive has WAVETABLES, too.

If people wanted sylenth they would buy sylenth, not hive, regardless of the cost (hive is 149€, and sylenth costs 139€ excluding VAT, so you're wrong again).

you are wrong ...
Hive can do sounds, sylenth1 is not able too. and now with WT support added, its way ahead of sylenth1.
  Resident 10.07.2014 1201
Hive is better than sylenth1. Hive for me is a good competition to dune 3 and serum. Hive is easy to program and always sounds good. Hive is like what sylenth1 v3 could have been. Or maybe what sylenth1 v10 is going to be. Just my 2 cents on this amazing synth.

looks like i need to update again, where can i find the untouched binaries?!

No, as mirrors are allowed here, you can add this link.

But I would be very cautious using original installer from Urs ....
You may find all your u-He plugins suddenly uncracked.

Anyone got their plugin reverting back to demo mode? Mine shows demo since last night.
  Member 17.03.2019 2
Yeah, mine just did the same thing.
