@darren__music High Sierra: Log out and in again, or simply reboot to make it aware of freshly installed AUs

Berlin-based audio software company u-he was founded in 2001 by Urs Heckmann. Originally a one-man show, the company recently evolved into a tightly-knit team of employees, active associates and 3rd-party contractors – with ambitious plans.

Especially well known for the Zebra2 software synthesizer, u-he has developed several other successful products over the last decade, and regularly contributes freeware to popular magazines (available as download or on cover discs).

Despite their underlying complexity, u-he synthesizers and effects are widely acclaimed for their ease of use. This is often attributed to Urs Heckmann's background as industrial designer. Heckmann sees the seemingly unconventional decision to start an audio software company as a direct result of his equal love for industrial design and for synthesizers.

Most recently, u-he has been exploring concepts for analogue synthesizers, and the first results can be heard in the software synths ACE (audio-rate modulation paths) and Diva (highly accurate simulation of electronic circuitry).

u-he presents Hive: a powerful but CPU-friendly synthesizer.

A streamlined single screen UI lets you dive into sound creation immediately. The fluid workflow lets you tweak away until your sound is just right (or wrong in just the right way). Hive was engineered to be light on CPU - it won't slow you down while you work. Hive: A lightweight synth that delivers a heavyweight sound.

Hi u-he, .

I am having problems with Diva. It keeps telling me that it has problems with permissions and it is unable to write the files into the diva folders.

I have already tried all the solutions in this forum and yet it still does not work. I've already tried installing it out of Program Files and granting full permissions to the Diva folder but the problem still persist.

Please help.
