Merry Christmas!

December 19, 2016

It’s that time of year again, when we get festive and take holidays. Please note from December 22 until January 5 the u-he offices will be closed. A limited amount of support will be offered via the forum, but it will be slower than normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at u-he!

Repro-1 1.0

December 2, 2016

Repro-1 release

We are happy to announce the release of Repro-1.

Repro-1 is a reverent model of a vintage monosynth, recreated with all the raw personality and quirks of the original, but with a charm all of its own. Like the original, Repro-1 is a fierce synth: hard working, raw sounding and immensely playable.

Repro-1 follows in the footsteps of Diva—striving for authentic analogue sound—but attains new levels of accuracy with component-level modelling. The classic design belies Repro-1’s fierce capabilities: thumping basses, ghostly screams, wild sequences… and maybe an ’80s cover song or two.

More details and demo songs are available on the Repro-1 product page.


$99*    


Download Repro-1 for Mac OS X (VST2 / VST3 / AU / AAX / NKS)
Download Repro-1 for Windows (VST2 / VST3 / AAX / NKS)
Download Repro-1 for Linux

* plus applicable taxes.

Diva’s 5th Birthday Event

November 21, 2016

Diva's 5th birthday

Note: This promotion is over

This month marks 5 years since we introduced Diva to the world. Good looks and stunning sound paved the way for Diva to become an icon of analogue modelling. We are proud of what we achieved and how Diva has become a vital part of so many musicians’ creative work. We look forward to sharing many more years of Diva’s story with you.

In this spirit, we celebrate Diva—and we all know that divas love a party! And parties need presents, so…

From November 24 until November 29 (11:59AM CET), Diva is 30% off. We have reduced the price already, no coupons needed. Just visit the Diva page, add Diva to your shopping cart and celebrate.

If you already own Diva, or other u-he plug-ins, we have coupons for you. The more plug-ins you own, the greater the discount. Visit this page for details and to receive your coupon.

Repro-1 public beta

October 18, 2016

Repro-1 public beta

We are pleased to start the public beta for Repro-1. Repro-1 is a precise emulation of a vintage monosynth, recreated with all the raw personality and quirks of the original, but with a charm all of its own.

Repro-1 follows in the footsteps of Diva—striving for authentic analogue sound—but attains new levels of accuracy with component-level modelling. We worked hard to capture the behaviour and the aggressive sound of the original. And a few extra additions so Repro-1 fits in with modern workflows.

Like the original, Repro-1 is a fierce synth: hard working, raw sounding and immensely playable.

Download the new beta version of Repro-1 from our KVR forum Link.

Impressions from Superbooth16

April 21, 2016

We returned from Superbooth16 with so many impressions. Under the magnificent ’50s architecture of the Funkhaus Berlin we chatted with customers, mingled with other developers, caught up with old friends and enjoyed an absinthe or two in the afternoon sun. The event was a wonderful collision of synthesizers, concerts, presentations and technology—it felt more like a festival than a trade show.

The whole u-he team had a fantastic time, and we are eager for Superbooth17 next year.

See our photos and videos from the event .

RePro-Alpha available

April 4, 2016

Our latest “researchware” plug-in RePro-Alpha is ready. It is a first step in our recreation of the classic Sequential Circuits Pro-One monophonic synthesizer.

This free alpha version is a way for us to gather feedback on various filter models which will help us decide on the best implementation for the final version.

Please download RePro-Alpha, play with it, try the different filter models stuff, build an opinion, and then vote in this thread. Take your time and think about what differences you hear in the filter models and under what settings do hear the differences discuss.
