u-he DIVA Software Synthesizer

Experience classic synths or build hybrids of your own! u-he's Diva synthesizer delivers the sounds of monophonic and polyphonic analog synths of yesteryear.

DIVA stands for Dinosaur Impersonating Virtual Analogue. This powerful software synth captures the spirit of five decades of analogue synthesizers. Oscillators, filters, and envelopes from some of the greatest monophonic and polyphonic synths of yesteryear were meticulously modelled for unmatched analogue sound. It's more than a single synthesizer -- you can recreate an old favorite or mix-and-match modules to design your unique hybrid.

Diva captures the spirit of various analogue synthesizers by letting the user select from a variety of alternative modules. The oscillators, filters and envelopes closely model components found in some of the greatest monophonic and polyphonic synthesizers of yesteryear. But what sets Diva apart from other emulations is the sheer authenticity of her analogue sound. This comes at the cost of quite a high CPU-hit, but uHe thinks it was worth it: Diva is the first native software synth that applies methods from industrial circuit simulators (e.g. PSpice) in real time. The behavior of zero-delay-feedback filters when pushed to the limit clearly demonstrates the advantages of this groundbreaking approach.

Check out more than 1200 presets. If your computer can handle it, try them in "Divine" mode.

The filters are at the heart of Diva’s analogue sound. A combination of realtime circuit simulation and zero delay feedback (ZDF) design gives Diva its remarkable sound. With ZDF, the delays normally produced when modelling analogue circuits are vastly read more reduced, resulting in a much more authentic resonance behaviour.

Diva models five different filters found in classic hardware synthesizers. All filters have modulation options and the traditional cutoff and resonance controls, but each has its character, quirks and options.

Like the filters, Diva’s oscillators are also modelled on classic hardware. The five models offer a wide range of different characteristics that fundamentally affect the overall sound, giving you a broad palette to start with for your next riff, bass and pad.

All five share common controls: waveform selection, octave range, mix or independent output volume controls, a noise source and plentiful modulation options. Plus a few touches unique to each model.
