Hive is the greatest sounds of every synth ever made (2500+ presets!!) in a single screen UI.
In spite of the huge and expensive collection of other soft synths I have at my disposal, I always turn to Hive first and 9 times out of 10 it gives me what I am looking for.
I don't know how it was possible to create such a versatile but simple synthesizer, I can only imagine that Urs has such a deep knowledge of synthesis that he knows exactly what is needed and what is not to create every sound possible.
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.
