From the looks of things, u-he has been a very busy company. One of the big things they are toiling away at right now is AAX support, which is a big deal for the Pro Tools folk. I use the Uhbik bundle constantly and I’ll be very happy to know when Pro Tools 11 shows up, at some point, those will be available for me. Another thing they’ve developed is a plugin called “Satin” as well as a new massive modular synth virtual instrument called Bazille. Satin seems to be a virtual tape emulator WITH flange and delay built in. I always wonder why more tape emulators don’t offer that as an extra. Great job to the u-he crew on that one for sure. Also it appears Diva is getting a facelift with new modules such as an arpeggiator and sequencer. I’ve only heard great things about Diva and this can only make it better.
Satin Tape Machine
Satin is a tape simulation plug-in that includes tape delay and true flanging. Under-the-hood features: record / playback head calibration, tape coating selection, NR-encoding/decoding and more. Satin created such a buzz during the show that we can’t wait to release it!
Satin will arrive in May (we hope) for VST2, VST3, AU (AAX tba), price about USD 129
Many of you will already know the alpha version of Bazille, a spin-off from our long-term project “Berlin Modular”. It’s been a few years already, so its about time we finished the job! For those who didn’t know, Bazille is a large modular synth with FM, PD and Fractal Resonance built into each oscillator:
– Unique FM / PD based modular synthesizer, audio-rate modulation
– Quality effects and many other features not available in the alpha version
– ETA is June, price approximately USD 149
