IMSTA FESTA, New York: a celebration of technology

September 12, 2018

u-he is once again taking part in the IMSTA FESTA in New York this year (September 22nd).

The good people at IMSTA will be setting up a workstation there so you can check out our latest products, including the new Zebra versions and Colour Copy, our bucket brigade delay. Smooth with a capital SMOO


Colour Copy, the smoothest analog delay

August 14, 2018

Colour Copy was inspired by classic bucket-brigade delays (BBD) then extended with modern features such as the unique colour morphing, adjustable stereo taps, dynamic ducking of the feedback signal, freeze and MIDI note tracking.

Colour Copy delivers the kinds of colouration people love in classic BBD units, but with a much wider range of characteristics. Delay times range from 0.25ms to 4 seconds.


Presswerk gets NKS-support and our new browser

August 14, 2018

We have finally equipped our multi-talented dynamics processor Presswerk with the new preset browser, which features tagging and powerful search functions.

Apart from several bug fixes and usability improvements, version 1.1.2 also supports Native Instruments' NKS format for compatibility with their Maschine / Komplete Kontrol hardware.


Zebratron, the psychedelic soundset for Zebra2

August 14, 2018

Created by our very own Howard Scarr, Zebratron was heavily inspired by tape-based keyboards and other innovative instruments of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Several of the presets are remarkably similar to signature sounds of that era, while others reinterpret their "flawed" aesthetic.

All Zebratron presets were designed to be performed using the standard left-hand controls and Zebra’s two user-definable MIDI controls.
