Hive2 is released and Eclipse has got a quick update to be compatible with it!

  • New Modulation System
  • Function Generators
  • Shape Sequencer
  • Scope

These are now available in Eclipse skin (Theme version is now v1.1).

“Quick” Update

This is a “quick”, or “rush” update. I mean, it does not look much sophisticated.

Simply added tab, light blue & pink…Definitely I can do better if there’s time, but this time I prioritize speed over quality since some users may be deseparate to get “Assymmetrical Hive2”.

Good Design Takes Time

The original Eclipse’s color choice was solely for 4 groups division.

Now that FG & SSQ are added, I chose 2 new colors between them.

But if you pursue a really well-balanced color coordination, you inevitably need to rearrange all 6 colors. A brilliant design never comes from an easy way with little effort.

Major for Major

So the conclusion is simple: If there’s a major update for synth, a skin also needs a major update.

A new project is going on, although I can’t talk much about it now.

Anyway good things will come sooner or later. Until that time, just have fun with new Hive!
