Diva's oscillators, filters and envelopes (which can be mixed and matched) closely model components also found in some of the great monophonic and polyphonic synthesizers of yesteryear. "But," says Urs, "what truly sets DIVA apart is the sheer authenticity of the circuit emulations – at the cost of a relatively high CPU-hit, DIVA is the first native software synth that applies methods from industrial circuit emulators (search for "PSpice") in realtime. Especially the authentic behaviour of DIVA's zero-delay-feedback filters, when pushed to the limits, demonstrates the advantages of this groundbreaking approach."

u-he describes the available filters as "famous transistor ladder", "screaming Sallen-Key", "classic OTA ladder" and "OTA state-variable" (and similar for the oscillators), and owners of classic analogue synths will already know how best to apply these models – they are easily differentiated in the gorgeous user interface.

Since Version 1.3 Diva also features a Digital Oscillator, an "Uhbie" filter and a vintage-style Arpeggiator.

Nice review Aiynzahev... shame there ain't no 11/10 cause Diva smashes the 10 barrier IMO ;-)

Diva became my favorite VST synth almost immediately. The sheer number of awesome presets is staggering. I have done nothing but play it for the last 2 nights. I am trying to get 10 posts on here because I want to write a review of it. not sure what number I'm on. anyway, if you have any question about whether you should get Diva, ask yourself the question: Do you have $10,000+ to spend on analogue hardware synths? No? Get Diva.

Diva filters are fantastic! The sound is clear and rich, seems like magic.

Yes! Diva is incredible... U-he is where it's at. The more I play with Diva the better it gets...

It would be perfect if the LFOs could go a little higher, it had one glide knob, and used less CPU.

Excuse me, but I fail to understand your comment. LFO's go a little higher? One Glide knob? Please explain what you were getting at while I digest my leftovers.

snigelx, could you be any more rude?

10 March 2014 at 10:36amnr1killabee

I am sure he can be more rude.
In what culture/country do you live?
I ask because I understand his comment as he is offering his help.
