U-he The Dark Zebra v2.8.0 WIN OSX LINUX Regged-R2R screenshot
DATE : 2020.01.25 | NUMBER : R2R-8778 | SiZE : 78.6 MB

A bank of over 400 presets, a collaboration between Hans Zimmer and Howard Scarr. Practically all Zebra sounds in the The Dark Knight as well as The Dark Knight Rises soundtracks are included, plus several more that didn’t quite fit into the scores. The pack also includes Hans' custom built update from a licensed Zebra2.x to the version you can see in this video, ZebraHZ. Several of the more recent patches make use of the extra features available in ZebraHZ.

R2R just keep on killing us, with all these awesome releases.

We barely have enough time to recover from a huge party where we celebrate the latest R2R release...
... and BAM, they release another bomb.

In less than 3 hours, we got Arturia V collection 7.x, now, we got Dark Zebra...

That's too much to handle, , for one single heart :)

I can finally rid of my "fixed" HZ version (not that there was anything wrong - I just had it stored at "fixed" as probably where/how I got it. Probably here but I don't recall.) lolz

Can someone explain the key differences between Zebra2 and the dark zebra / zebraHZ?
  Banned 21.11.2019 3 362
It's "special" Hanz Zimmer personal version or something to that effect. Yes it can run simultaneously, as they are separate plugins but you CAN make symbolic links to run the normal patches from normal version in it and vice-versa, I believe. I -think- I did that when we had R2R party new years.

There's this from Urs himself, not sure if it's the only difference:

ZebraHZ filters are identical to Diva filters. Same code. No difference.

The oscillator levels in Zebra may be much higher though than Diva at same setting. You're getting a simple +6dB monosum after all, and I think they are 0dB RMS while Diva is 0dB peak. Thus try Osc volume below 35.00 and compensate by mixer gain.

Majestic This is a comparison of Diva vs Zebra, not Zebra2 vs Dark Zebra as ddbo asked.

ddbo DArk Zebra is a soundset but it's based on a moded version made for Hans Zimmer, ZebraHZ features Diva filters (but does not have Diva’s multicore support).

From Music Radar:

u-he's Dark Zebra comprises a soundbank of 400 patches by Hans Zimmer and Howard Scarr, as used in the soundtracks for The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, and Zimmer's custom Zebra 2.5 mod, ZebraHZ.

"The patches add up to one of the most impressive, beautifully designed sound libraries we've ever heard"

ZebraHZ adds quite a lot of new stuff to the original - stuff that's ultimately destined for Zebra 3. It's by no means a rewrite of u-he's classic semi-modular at this point, but four polyphonic compressors (great for hard-transient patches), a Resonator module (emulating the Polymoog Resonators unit) and an extra filter section pulled from DIVA certainly take the Zebra sound to new places.

The patches add up to one of the most impressive, beautifully designed sound libraries we've ever heard. Making great use of the mod and pitch wheels, they're epic, evocative, highly playable and ever-so-Hollywood.

Until now, I was not using Uhe plugins in serious way, as I was afraid for them to timebomb at some point. But thanks to R2R new method I'll be finally able to try them and thus eventually buy them.

quote by OlymoonMajestic This is a comparision of Dive vs Zebra, not Zebra2 vs Dark Zebra.

You mistake me. I wasn't comparing Diva vs Zebra. I was saying that at least one of the differences between Dark Zebra and Regular Zebra is that Dark Zebra has Diva filters, as opposed to Regular Zebra which does not.

Ah sorry, I misunderstood.. But that's because it was not stated that Zebra HZ have the same filters as Diva.

Is there some way to chill with team r2r so I can buy them a nice dinner, chill, n chop it up??

They dont accept compensation.
The best thing you can do is buy a plugin to provide it with its license.

Can the batman presets be imported into normal Zebra v2.9.0.9436?
  Member 22.10.2018 390
I copied these presets to Zebra2's presets directory, presets working but when i compare to ZebraHZ i noticed some of them hearing wrong. Some of these patches have filter or volume problems on Zebra2.
  Member 8.10.2018 2 169
That's logical since, as stated above, ZebraHZ has four polyphonic compressors, a Resonator module and an extra filter section pulled from DIVA which are not present in standard Zebra. So presets made with ZebraHZ will sound different in Zebra standard.
C'est mon avis et je le partage.
