The synth is basically a faithful representataion of the synth it is emulating. The GUI is spot on. If you owned one of these you'll find your way around in no time coz it looks just like the original.

Now the sound and presets....I don't personnally dig the sounds/presets that daHornet is capable of and probably won't use it in any of my songs but not because its poor quality or anything, coz it not. Because the sound just isn't to my taste (I have the same views on Oddity!).

This is not a bad thing at all. Its a bit like saying that although a piano VSTi is excellent you don't like to use it in your songs because you prefer the organ.

My advice is to download the demo and give it a spin. If you had the original you will love this. If you fancy a grungy filthy lead line then you love it. It depends on your tastes really. If you want some industrial effect type sounds for something then it would probably be the synth you should turn to.

Features is rated high coz it has loads of them including midi learn which I particularly like in a synth.

Docs and customer support are very good. Infact, the developer hangs out at K-v-R so you always get a fast response to problems and queries - not that you will have any problems coz daHornet is rock solid on my system.

All in all this is a great synth and is great value for money. I do wonder why they only priced it at $30 coz most other companies charge over $100 for good analogue emulation VSTi's such as this.

i paid the $9 to use this with intel macs, after the free version wasn't recognized by my daw.

does anyone know where i can find the link to download this intel version, as i've made the payment but can't seem to find out how to actually get the synth.

many thanks.

I'm having the same problem. Anyone get this for intel yet?

I've got it minutes ago here :


Beware: the row of the table shows a serial number to copy-paste. Nothing illegal, daHornet had been created to be purchased but when it became freeware later, the dll has not been recompiled, so this serial number is provided to use it since that day it became freeware.

And the current version is 1.43 (with SSE and 64-bit support).

Let me add that it has very, very nice sounds in the paid version! (very cheap)

I love it! I'm grateful this synth is still actively supported for 64-bit AU. Amazing dedication. I deeply appreciate it.

Hey, can anyone tell me the proper way to install Da Hornet? I've installed it into my plugins folder in my Studio One directory, but I cannot seem to fins it anywhere in the DAW. Thank you.
