Swan Audio presents a pack of 80 presets and 3 great looking GUI ‘skin’ variations to give an Oberheim style experience ‘in the box’ using u-he Diva. The presets were carefully selected and tirelessly modeled from my Oberheim OB8 creating what I believe is the most ‘analogue-like’ plugin polysynth experience to date. The 80 sounds are classic analogue style and intended to be playable, musical and inspiring – what analogue does best.
When first using Diva in truth I did not find the sound to be ‘that’ authentic analogue. It was only in tests with my analogue hardware that I realized it needs to be set carefully within certain parameters, then it can in fact sound very close to the real thing. This is what sets this soundpack apart – the sounds are modeled directly from an analogue synth by someone with a great deal of experience with them – not from a memory or idea of what one sounds like. Check out this blind A/B test against my OB8. Can you tell which is which?
But how does it stack up in a layered scenario in a track? Here is a blind A/B test ‘synth disco’ track… The ‘top line’ track is a Moog Source which is matched by the Diva Moog modules in the other example. I threw the Moog in there as I had it and so does Diva.
|Name of synth||U-he Diva|
|No. of presets||80|
This is an excellent DIVA pack if you're doing anything close to retrowave / synthwave, or 80s inspired. Get a nice bit of authentic OB colour in your tracks without having to buy another plugin. The custom themes are an added bonus.
awesome retro presets! deep dive into diva's knobs during preset creation is clear, and it captures a lot of the expected instability/bouncy sound of the reference.
