Hive 2: Sleek, streamlined, supercharged

Hive's clear layout and easy workflow let you create stunning patches in next to no time at all. Although surprisingly CPU-friendly, Hive doesn't sacrifice flexibility or audio quality. Now packed with more controls than ever, version 2 opens up new dimensions of expression… and sheer fun!

Main Features

  • Low CPU usage, 3 different synth engines
  • 2 oscillators with standard waveforms or 2D wavetables, up to 16x unison, tunable sub-oscillators
  • Drag & drop modulation assignment
  • 12x2 modulation matrix slots with modifiers for curvature, rectification, quantization, sample & hold, slew rate
  • 4 user-definable XY control pads
  • Arpeggiator, step sequencer with real-time recording
  • Unique 8-step shape sequencer with 4 independent outputs
  • 2 function generators which can serve as extra envelopes, gate generators, LFOs, slew limiters
  • 7 rearrangeable effects: distortion, chorus, delay, phaser, EQ, reverb, compressor
  • Panel presets for oscillators, filters, envelopes, LFOs, sequencer, FX and modulation matrix
  • Solo buttons let you audition individual oscillators and filters during sound design
  • Scope to view the audio output or any modulation signal, with freeze option and zoom controls
  • Microtuning support (.tun files)
  • 2000+ NKS-ready factory presets by some of our favourite sound designers, many more available online
  • Resizable UI from 70% to 200%

Underneath its sleek exterior, Hive 2 lets you go as deep as you like. Add movement and life using the shape sequencer, or instantly record, rotate and arpeggiate note sequences. The 12-slot matrix even lets you modulate effect parameters, encouraging you to explore a whole new world of creative options. With its swappable audio engine, flexible signal routing, wavetable support and quality effects, Hive 2 makes sure you can get the sound you want with a minimum of fuss.

Wavetables

How it works

Hive 2 includes Wavetables! These appear as multiple waveforms, and are controlled in the central hexagon. You can manually select wavetables, modulate the wave position via the matrix, or even scan through them automatically using the envelope and loop options (which let you animate wavetables without the need for an extra modulation source).

This panel also offers a Reverse option to flip the wavetable back to front, Cyclic mode for seamless wavetable cycling, and various real-time interpolation methods.

Multi-Table

Wavetables can be split into multiple parts (up to 16), effectively creating a 2-dimensional oscillator. For instance, a wavetable with 30 frames can be split into 3 x 10 frames by setting Tables to 3. The lower Position knob will crossfade between those 3. This feature opens up a second dimension of wavetable scanning, such as velocity crossfade or multisample support.

UHM scripting

Want to go even deeper? Many of Hive's factory wavetables are not samples, but ".uhm" files containing scripts written in a proprietary wavetable generation and manipulation language. If you're interested in writing your own scripts, grab this document (also included in the Hive installer)…

Interpolation

Hive provides 4 different algorithms for interpolating between wavetable frames: switch, crossfade, spectral, or zero phase. The appearance (and CPU usage) of waveforms can differ significantly, depending on the chosen interpolation. The s
