Get Demo version

You can download the demo version of the skin.

There could be rare cases where the skin causes DAW to crash. Please try changing some presets, editing parameters, pushing buttons.
And the skin is basically made for 100% zoom / HD display. Please check if it looks beautiful in your screen and your preferable zoom rate.

If the GUI goes very sluggish on Mac, please try the optimization method written in “Support” tab.


Demo Restrictions

  • Only Half number of modules are available. (e.g. OSC 3&4, Noise2 are disabled)
  • Many stamps that say “Demo”, which is annoying.

  • It requires Zebra v2.9 (Rev.9436 or higher).
  • It also supports ZebraHZ!! v2.9.1 (with 4 Combs and 3 Resonators) is required.

Further Support

If you have some trouble, please contact us. Or the KVR thread is the best place to have discussion!

Optimization on Mac

Neumann Pro displays huge amount of parameters at once, which inevitably results in high burden on rendering GUI, especially so in zoom rates other than 100%.

To be more specific, on some recent Mac OS it could go very sluggish. Here are some measures that hopefully improve the performance.

Rewrite Zebra Preference File

  • Go to ~(User)/Library/Application Support/u-he/
  • Open the file “com.u-he.Zebra2.Preferences.txt” (or “com.u-he.ZebraHZ.Preferences.txt” for ZebraHZ)
  • Find a line like this:
    V_PROPERTY name=’Preference’ id=’0′ value=’AllViews:Cocoa Draw Async:NO’
  • If you find the line, change NO to YES.
  • If don’t, simply add the line manually :
    V_PROPERTY name=’Preference’ id=’0′ value=’AllViews:Cocoa Draw Async:YES

This could *dramatically* improve the performance. If it’s not enough, please add another 2 lines:

  • V_PROPERTY name=’Preference’ id=’0′ value=’AllViews:Cocoa View Cache Bitmaps:ALL’
  • V_PROPERTY name=’Preference’ id=’0′ value=’AllViews:Cocoa View Update Strategy:SMART’

Change Color Profile

  • Open “System Preference.app”
  • Go to “Display” option, “Color” tab.
  • Change color profile to ones starting with “sRGB-“.

This could improve the performance a bit.

Release Notes

Release notes of “Neumann Pro” are integrated to “Neumann“.

    Absolutely essential skin for Zebra2 & HZ. This skin will greatly speed up your workflow with its information dense interface, yet straight forward layout. Only problem I have with it, is the oscillator controls are now a little hidden. It’s a small price to pay though, because in all other skins, most of the other things are hidden in so many pointless panels.

    I use ZebraHZ for about 10 years. I love the U-He product. But this skin does not only change the colors but also the layout. Sometimes this can be a bad thing, but this one is done perfectly! The workflow is much faster now and it feels like working with a new synthesizer. Zebra 3 is coming but this will always be my go to with this skin. No regrets of puchasing this to support the creator and improve the plugin so a lot.
