Dear Linux users,

I'm pleased to announce the beginning of the Linux public beta test, with more plugins to try this time. :party:

Here are the tarballs:
ACE-4408
Bazille-4408
Diva-4408
Filterscape-4408
Hive-4408
MFM2-4408
Podolski-4408
Presswerk-4408
Protoverb-4408.tar.gz
Repro-4365
Satin-4408
TrippleCheese-4408
Uhbik-4408
Zebra2-4458

To install a plugin, download the archive, extract it and run install.sh.

You can use the following script to batch install all of them at once:

Code: Select all

#! /bin/bash
function install_uhe()
(
  product="$1"
  rev="$2"
  cd /tmp &&
  wget http://uhedownloads.heckmannaudiogmb.netdna-cdn.com/penguin/release/$rev/$product-$rev.tar.gz -O $product-$rev.tar.gz &&
  tar xf $product-$rev.tar.gz &&
  cd $product-$rev &&
  ./install.sh --quiet &&
  cd /tmp &&
  rm -rf $product-$rev $product-$rev.tar.gz
)

for product in ACE Bazille Diva Filterscape Hive MFM2 Podolski Presswerk Protoverb "Repro 4365" Satin TrippleCheese Uhbik "Zebra2 4458"
do
  install_uhe $product 4408
done
Also, a big thank you to the beta tester team, with a special mention to phantom-one for his great job ;-).
And an other big thank you for the support of the u-he team!

I hope that you'll enjoy this release!

PS: we are some users in the IRC channel #u-he on irc.freenode.net, we're waiting for you there ;-)
PPS: this thread is now to big to be manageable, we now have a reddit forum for u-he plugins on Linux: https://www.reddit.com/r/UheOnLinux/

(Sound of me falling out my chair)

Ah, two days of absolutely nothing else to do but the daily chores and test u-he synths in Linux.

Thanks to everyone involved in this remarkable project, and I'll report back soon.

Best,

dp

Nice!

I install them tommorrow on my desktop system and start playing with them.



installed them for now on my laptop and getting these message when starting bitwig.
It doesn't harm the working of the plugins it seems. They load like they should and, Ace is doing it's job fine for now.

So... I have to use old Macbook from 2008 with intel core duo.
I use last Linux mint 64bit, 2gb ram and Renoise 3.0.1 64 bit and i have to say that every plugin run amazingly well! I had laptop with 2x times more powerful CPU from AMD and 4 gb rams and Windows 7 also and there is no so big difference (i have to freeze all your plugins :lol: ).
Great, thank you U-HE and Abique, no problem here.

This is great - thanks so much for the linux support.

So far Diva is my fave and I will consider a purchase.

I had a good experience with all the plugins except I notice Podolski still gets consistently stuck on sustain whenever I use my sustain pedal. None of the other plugins suffered from this.

Perhaps I'm not understanding the plugin...

I look forward to seeing the rest of the ports.

I am going to purchase Ace, cause it is cheap, not so cpu demanding and very universal :-).
Can i have one special wish? Can you convert Zebra CM also maybe? Another great freeware / old magware :-)?

ZebraCM is already ported, just unavailable for public beta testing right now. I think the rest of plugins will be available soon, when more feedback is received.

Is LV2 Support also planned?
I'd like to try it with Ardour. :)
Reaper 5, Logic X, Cubase 8, Bitwig, Ardour 4, Mixbus 3 - why not? ;)
