Azure is a set with 207 new sounds for the u-he Hive synthesizer, designed for modern genres house / edm pop, especially for Progressive House, with an emphasis on melodic cues, bass parts, lush pads, massive effects and even synthesized drums.
The soundset is divided into two parts. The first part (157 presets) was developed in Hive 1 and to a large extent uses a combination of traditional waveforms as well as wave tables presented in Hive 1.2. The second part is unique to Hive 2 and is a collection of 50 sounds using the new wave tables supplied with Hive 2.
We also added our own wave tables – but instead of just adding a few new tones, we created 11 tables based on phrases spoken by a speech synthesizer.
Azure contains 207 new sounds and 11 new wavetables.
