Repro v1.1 (includes Repro-5)

We are wrapping up 2017 with the release of Repro v1.1, a free update for Repro-1. A year ago we released Repro-1, a brash and raw monosynth. This year we added a new polyphonic family member: Repro-5.

Repro-5 shares a lot of sonic DNA with Repro-1, but once you start playing with Repro-5 you will discover new and unique flavours and characteristics, most notably polyphony.

Repro v1.1 released

Repro is one product, one installer, two synths with analogue authenticity front and centre—two famous analogue synthesizers meticulously recreated using component-level modelling.

More details and demo songs are available on the Repro product page.

Repro-5 Public Beta

We are pleased to start the public beta for Repro-5. Repro-5 shares a lot of sonic DNA with Repro-1, but draws inspiration from an even more iconic vintage synthesizer. You will find the familiar rough and raw sounds of Repro-1, but with a few differences, new flavours and characteristics. Most notably, of course, is polyphony

Repro-5 public beta

Download the Repro-5 beta from our KVR forum.

Available in VST, AU AAX and NKS formats for macOS, Windows and Linux.

Since Repro-5 and Repro-1 are family, at the end of the beta period we will combine them into a single product called Repro. One product, one installer, two synths.

We are offering an introductory discount for the Repro bundle: from November 17 to December 31st, 2017 purchase Repro (Repro-1 + Repro-5) for $99. Starting January 1st 2018, Repro’s final price will be $149 (plus applicable taxes).

Purchase Repro.

If you already own Repro-1, Repro-5 is a free update for you. Simply download and install the new beta and your existing Repro-1 serial number will unlock Repro-5.

New Soundset: Arena

Arena soundset

Our latest soundset takes a different approach than our previous releases—it is smaller and highlights a single theme. Compact and concentrated inspiration.

Arena focuses on lead sounds crafted for the high energy of contemporary techno, trance, dubstep, EDM and more. Sound designer Kevin Schroeder pushed himself and Hive to create lead sounds bursting with vigour and character. And he certainly delivered: 50 presets ready for writing memorable melodies and riffs.

High Sierra (Mac OS X 10.13) Compatibility

Apple's newest version of the macOS, High Sierra (10.13), is now available. We have been testing our plug-ins for compatibility with the help of some of customers. While our plug-ins work with High Sierra, we have identified a few issues:

  • Presets are not listed in alphabetical order. The introduction of a new file system in macOS High Sierra causes presets to be unsorted.
  • After installing any u-he plug-in you will need to reboot your computer for the plug-in to work.
  • AU plug-ins do not load in GarageBand. This seems to affect u-he plug-ins as well as other companies.

We are working to make all our plug-ins compatible with High Sierra, if you have any questions please contact our support team.
