u-he Release Massive Updates

Everyone else can enjoy the improvements made to ACE, Diva, Hive, Repro, Zebra2, and ZebraHZ software. The installers are better and more failsafe, compatibility with macOS dark mode was improved, and many minor niggles have been fixed.


Diva 1.4.4 now has improved multicore support, and new compilers allowed us to further reduce the CPU hit. u-he also improved compatibility with MPE controllers and implemented the new voice stealing algorithm from Hive – which is just that extra tad more musical! All together u-he think Diva 1.4.4 feels like a whole new synth: Better performance, better playability, better everything.

ACE 1.4.1 underwent a similar treatment to Diva, but the main news is that we can announce tagged presets and an end to mismatched parameters between the Mac, Windows and Linux versions. Yay! Some of your old projects on Windows may need certain automated parameters to be reassigned by hand, but u-he enclosed a list of changes to help you do that. Again, improvements in voice handling make the new ACE as much joy to play as Diva and Hive!

ZebraHZ 2.9.1 is finally updated to match the recent release of Zebra2, which itself had a few minor bugs fixed. At Hans’ request, ZebraHZ 2.9.1 (part of The Dark Zebra soundset) has been extended with some extra modules: There are now 4 Comb filters and 3 Resonators! If you own The Dark Zebra and wish to update, simply request a download link from the My Licenses page. In the Email you receive look for Zebra2 The Dark Zebra


Repro 1.1.1 has a few minor improvements and crash bugs fixed.


Hive 2.0.1 received major improvements in its UI responsiveness.


Podolski 1.2.2 has been updated with tagged presets and NKS support.

You will find comprehensive accounts of the fixed and remaining issues in the release notes for each plug-in.

Note that the alpha/beta versions of Bazille and Uhbik are already notarized for Catalina.
