Super sounds – fast

Hive has been updated to version 1.2 - featuring wavetables, XY controls and more!

Hive was built for speed. A streamlined, effortless workflow means you can build up your tracks in no time. Layer multiple instances, then tweak away until your track is just right. With Hive you get a surprisingly CPU-friendly instrument that always delivers the goods—a lightweight synth with a heavyweight sound.
