It's the closest to the Wasp I've found since "going Mac", and I like it a lot. daHornet is free, so stop reading and just go play with it!

Still here? It's noisy, spunky, funky and dirty, just the way you like it. It can also do some refined sounds, but to pull that off you'll have to toss some effects in there. Don't bother!

Don't neglect the right-click menu! There are a LOT of features buried in there, including a patch randomizer which lets you pick type of patch (bass, lead, etc.)

Someone below said it best: it's a niche synth, but a very well executed one.

User Interface: Funky but easy to figure out.

Sound: Dirty, loud and unapologetic.

Features: It's a three-trick pony. Nice basslines, screaming leads, and ambient sounds (noise).

Documentation: Haven't looked at it, haven't needed to.

Presets: All good stuff. Very diverse, but you'll want to fiddle with a lot of them.

Customer Support: Haven't needed it yet.

Value for Money: It's free, duh.

Stability: Solid.

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.
