New Modulation System
AIKO has the new modulation system like NI Massive synth.
There are "modulation source box" and you can do these:
- Left click : Set the mod source
- Drag the text area : Control mod depth
- Right click: Change the mod source
- Mod amount is shown as a ring.
Just have a try and you'll see. It's really simple and fit to your hand!
And there're many other small improvements that surely enhance your experience.
AIKO /áɪkɔ/ is an abbreviation of "All Interfaces Kawaiku Optimized".
(*Kawaiku = adverb form of "Kawaii", which means "lovable" or "cute" in Japanese.)
"Cuteness", is kinda opposite to "Dinosaur" -- AIKO aims at obtaining modern tidiness. So the design of DualVCO, for example, is rather inspired by JP-08, not the original JUPITER-8.
AIKO in Japan
AIKO is named after the famous Japanese singer, aiko. She is one of those who represent the Japanese pop music scene!

As a preface I should say, I bought another Diva skin before this one. A very popular one, albeit not for me. It was very attractive and added some nice things to Diva but I felt it ultimately made me work a bit slower because I was already so adjusted to Diva’s default layout.
I don’t encounter this sort of issue with Aiko. It looks and behaves very much like the default Diva skin, but it adds some very nice workflow enhancements and puts more of the interface where I can immediately see and use it. The change to the modulation system is absolutely for me, and the XY pads are a teriffic touch. This sounds like some fluffy marketing platitude, but it’s kind of more than a skin.

It is really awesome! My Diva looks like its a new generation synth now. One of your best works IMHO.

With this skin I have finally found an analog synth that satisfies my needs. Congratulations on a GUI design that turns DIVA into a true musical playground. Victor

Amazing Skin Design for DIVA. It’s by far my favorite Softsynth, but the original GUI looked really dated and for me personally not fun to work with. The Plugmon Skins works issue free so far and finally also made it visually one of the best synths in my arsenal!

Skin: Top notch… Its realy great… but… the presets: wtf is going on they are even better!!! I mean i have like thousends of presets for Diva but like 99% of them don’t even come close to the ones of this site…
Realy good deal, worth the money.

Fab skin, just beyond good. The gloomy negative look (Callas criminally forgotten in her Paris attic) has vanished and Diva has had her long-overdue facelift. This is a spectacular achievement by one of the most gifted graphic artists working in interface-land.
Diva now looks futuristic as well as retro, the best softsynth ever is swanning around in the most glamorous livery imaginable. The new mod source boxes, the cool borrowings from Massive X, the excellent presets bundled with the skin, I could go on and on.
Yes, I had a few issues on MAC OS Catalina, but Yuta got right on the case and quickly sent me a beta which is now stable.
U-he should add this skin to Diva 2, I’ve written ’em to say so and they seem open to the idea. (No surprise!)

I absolutely love this skin. I found the old one pleasing to look at but difficult to navigate. The effects and LFOs are now in a layout that I’m more familiar with and make Diva less of a mystery. Worth the money. Presets were a great bonus.

Amazing UI and very beautiful. I don’t want to use Diva without it

Love the theme. It makes Diva way more fun to tweak in my opinion. My only complain is that the preset browser does not support tags. Hopefully this gets added soon.

Amazing skin, works like a charm. Makes modulation clear and easy to use.

Best skin for DIVA hands down, only gripe and the reason I removed 1 star is because u cant seem to use the SEARCH function unlike the original U-He Diva GUI.

This is my favorite DIVA skin for a while now. It invite me to sound design while the default skin don’t really. Although i still keep the tasty red at the bottom. Thanks a lot Plugmon as well as the patches ! this is really appreciated 😉
