Bios is a very versatile library. The majority of the presets are initially very chilled & understated, making them suitable for underscoring, ambient or downtempo work. Start to use the mapped controls (modwheel, breath, expression & aftertouch) and they can become very nasty in nature! This makes them perfect for genres such as cyberpunk, darkwave & trailer…maybe a load more electronic genres!
Bios comes with 136 presets (with extra variations).
•2 hat sequences
•2 sub basses
•5 bass drops (each with 4 length variations)
•4 risers (each with 7 length variations)
Bios also comes with 21 custom wavetables – these are required to be installed so that the presets function as expected.
The vast majority of the presets have the modwheel, breath & expression mapped. Quite a few also have aftertouch mapped. Using the controls gives a great amount of flexibility and variation in the presets.
I endeavoured to keep the maximum volume of each preset around -5dBFS true peak.
The presets were created in Hive 2 version 2.0.1 (revision 9709) so I cannot guarantee them working in an earlier version. You can get the most up to date version of Hive 2 from u-he’s website.
