Why not samples, but Hive?
The answer is simple : creativity and morphability.
Some sounds are just between wood and metal, glass and wood, or harp and mallet. Some have watery texture, Others have cheap retro tastes. They give you much broader sounds than static samples.
And just twist a knob and you’ll get a new sound. Just press “Next Wavetable” button and you’ll get another. You can control every bit of sounds such as envelopes, velocity-sensitivity, detune, width, without loosing its quality at all.
So it includes only 48 materials, but you’ll never end up with just 48. The possibility is literally immense!
