About u-he

SYNTH WEEK 2022: Founded in 2001 by industrial designer/synthesizer aficionado Urs Heckmann as a one-man show, the Berlin-based audio software company u-he has since evolved into a tightly knit team of employees, active associates and 3rd-party contractors – with ambitious plans.

Known initially for Zebra2 and Diva synthesizers, u-he has released several other highly acclaimed products over the years, and regularly contributed freeware plug-ins to popular music technology magazines. Despite their underlying complexity, u-he synths and effects are often praised for their ease of use.

More recently, the u-he team has been exploring new technologies for vastly improved analogue synthesis and delay emulation (Repro / Colour Copy), for smoothest possible wavetable interpolation (Hive 2), for new physical modelling approaches to effect design (Twangström), as well as for Eurorack hardware (CVilization): 

All valuable groundwork and inspiration for exciting future products!
