U-he Diva and Zebra updates

Post by tack » Apr 27, 2018 10:31 pm

U-he has released updates of Diva and Zebra.

Among other things (change logs below), they both sport a new preset browser. I took Diva out for a spin and the preset browser is definitely fleshed out over previous releases, now supporting tags (not user-defined from what I can tell, but the available options look to provide sufficient coverage) as well as color coded favorites. It's not as fully baked as say Omnisphere's browser, but it's a welcome improvement over the previous release.

Diva release notes:
New features and improvements:

New Preset Browser
Pitchbend range is now +/−48
New user defined MIDI CC sources replace fixed expression and breath modulation
Mouseover shows parameter values in Data Display
GUI performance improvements on Windows
Plug-in format and OS information shown next to revision number
Improved VST3 implementation
Windows installer now certified
Init preset can be loaded from Data Display
Increased maximum number of skins from 10 to 20
Improved handling of 14bit MIDI CC assignment
Added UTF-8 support for registration names

Bug fixes:

Fixed unsorted folders and presets when using APFS in macOS High Sierra
Fixed possible crash in Cubase when selecting presets (Mac OS X only)
Fixed an issue where the VST3 version did not remember preset name in Data Display (Windows only)

Various small fixes and improvements
