Urs Heckman is a bit of a legend in software instrument circles, many of his instruments - DiVa, Zebra, Bazille, Ace all have fervent supporters. Superstar film composer Hans Zimmer is a massive fan, many of his soundtracks featuring custom patches from U-he sound designer Howard Scarr.

There are no apologies that some of these require significant CPU to drive their massive synth engines, so the latest release bucks that trend and has been designed purely with CPU effiiencies in mind.

We spent a little time with Urs who gave us a tour of the new instrument available in a couple of weeks at an introductory price of $99

 

  • Very low CPU usage
  • Switchable audio characteristics (normal, dirty, clean)
  • 2 main oscillators, 2 sub-oscillators
