U-he updates... many things at once
U-he has published updates for most of its plugin lineup.
After spending the early part of the summer organising, moving office and refining their workflow, U-he got back to work and there apparently was a lot to do — collecting, prioritising, filtering, implementing and refining a slew of outstanding bugfixes and feature requests. Finally, the work is done and many updates are available for most of their plugins (yes, even Podolski). Improvements, fixes, changes (etc) include:
- UI improvements:
- All plugin UIs now have 10% scaling, from 70% to 200%.
- The ACE UI is now clearer and has new modulation sources.
- Diva UI was also improved for increased clarity.
- The Zebra2 "Unempty Dark Horse" skin is now complete.
- And finally, a number of small graphics issues in various plugins are fixed.
- Configuration menu:
Bazille, Zebra2, Hive, Diva, ACE and Podolski now have a configuration menu (look for the cogwheel icon). This menu houses:
- MIDI learn: a visual overlay for assigning MIDI controls to the plugin interface
- MIDI list table: editable list of assigned MIDI controls
- Preferences: global settings for controls, appearance and audio
- Host/DAW issues:
- The “missing UI” bug in Logic and Studio One is fixed. Our customer support team breathes a sigh of relief.
- A number of small issues were fixed in Logic X, Studio One, Cubase, Reaper, Digital Performer, ProTools, Maschine and Kore
- Everything else:
Additionally, these updates include a heap of general improvements: fixed stuck and dropped notes, improved MIDI timing, new FX parameters… apparently, too many to be listed.
- More to come:
A few more updates are on the way: Satin and Presswerk need a little extra work before they are ready for release. Also, the Linux versions will be updated with the latest improvements.
On a side note, internal tests at U-he showed that all plugins work with Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and Windows 10 without any issues.
All updates are free for current owners of the plugins and can be installed over the existing versions. More details at u-he.com.

- A review of the U-He Hive virtual synth Hive, the latest instrument from u-he, does not claim the precision of Diva the richness of Zebra 2, or the modularity of Bazille or Ace. No. Hive looks and feels simple, is easy to use, and provides a fat sound. Mission accomplished?
