u-he updates Zebra to v2.5.1 with 64-bit support for Mac and Windows and sets Zebralette FREE

u-he

u-he has released version 2.5.1 of Zebra and Zebralette (which is now free). Despite the minor version jump from 2.5. to 2.5.1, there are numerous improvements and additions including 64-bit support, new spectral effects and extra presets. Of course Zebrify, the effects version of Zebra2, also benefits from the makeover.

The “oscillator playground” synth Zebralette is now freeware (it started out as "magware"). Zebralette is basically a single oscillator lifted out of Zebra2 and has what it takes to get synth fans hooked on the Zebra2 way of radically manipulating oscillator sounds.

Last but not least, u-he have dropped the $20 they originally charged for upgrading from Zebra1 to Zebra2. All Zebra1.x license owners can now retrieve a free Zebra 2.5 license from the companyʼs online support section.

New customers can purchase Zebra for $199.

New in Zebra Version 2.5.1:

  • Adds more than 70 new factory presets by Howard Scarr.
  • Adds a bunch of Zebrify presets by Tasmodia.
  • Brand new manuals including hyperlinks and structured reference.
  • Two new spectral effects (Phase Distortion and Wrap).
  • Native 64-bit support for Mac AU and VST Win.
  • Adds Cocoa view to AU version.
  • Smooth preset-switching (no pops, hangovers).
  • Improved timing stability for swing function (affects LFOs and arpeggiator).
  • Improved synchronization of multi-stage envelopes (MSEG).
  • Lower CPU usage for RTAS (Mac) version.
  • RTAS (Mac) now supports ctrl+alt+cmd+click (“3-finger salute”) automation.
  • Improved installers now take Win7 permissions issues into account.
  • Zebralette is now freeware, with 40+ extra presets by Howard Scarr.
  • Various bugs and niggles fixed, minor GUI improvements.
