Plughugger Releases Azure for u-he Hive
Azure is a soundset with 207 new sounds for the u-he Hive synthesizer aimed for modern house / EDM pop genres, especially Progressive House, with a focus on melodic plucks, driving basslines, lush pads, massive effects and even synthesized drum hits. The soundset is divided into two parts. The first part (157 presets) was developed on Hive 1, and are to a large extent using a combination of traditional waveforms as well as the wavetables introduced with Hive 1.2. The second part is unique for Hive 2 and is a collection of 50 sounds utilizing the new wavetables that come with Hive 2.
We also added our own wavetables – but rather than just adding a handful of new timbres, we created 11 wavetables based on phrases spoken by a speech synthesizer. Azure contains 207 new sounds and 11 new wavetables.
