on the paper it seems to be a common synth... but NO !!!!!! it is AMAZING ! The gui made the synth easy to use and the sound is really powerfull. It can generate some nice perc with the pink noise, some badass bass, killing lead ... The dirty mode is really something I love..
The arp & seq section in the hexagon is just a good idea from the dev. The FX are section is good, special mention to the chorus and the distortion.
I usually use a lot of NI in my song, but HIVE steal the show, I' sorry to said it but Fm8&Massive seems to be grand-pa and grandma when HIVE is playing.
It is released as a EDM synth but you could use it easily for a lot of genres. The best is to try it.Make your own advice.
I bought Hive about a week ago and it is one of the best decisions I ever made. Now I use Hive all the time. Easy to work with with an amazing sound. Nice GUI. It is not the most expensive out there. So all is positive.
Really hard to get in touch with Hive people, my serial wasn't accepted by the sofware and I will purchase again and see if i can use it then, my account wasn't debited and it may have something to do with it.
How can we make getting in touch any easier? Other than, say, a support section on our website, a link from within the software, a forum on KVR, an email address and links in the registration email, links and email address in the user manual as well as installer, Readme and so on. We also have 5 people answering to such emails all day, sometimes even on weekends. If there are other ways to get in touch with a software manufacturer, please let us know and we'll try to implement them for even easier access.
Anytime I have contacted u-he they have gotten back to me right away, within minutes to a few hours at most. They make a point to be very accessible to their customers, and are always friendly and helpful.
