Usine Hollyhock

Usine Hollyhock is a unique piece of software which introduces several revolutionary concepts.
Usine is dedicated to live music and real-time installations.

Also it’s a modular environment, which means that, even if you can find many ready to use examples, the main goal is to create and customize your live set to fit it exactly to your needs.
Usine is different but finally you’ll realize that it is one of the most powerful audio software you can find.

The ultimate DAW

Usine is the ultimate Digital Audio Workstation made for live or studio.
Usine Pro is designed as a flexible software solution for spontaneous electronic music creation, including live sampling, effect processing, and sound design.
Usine can to host VSTs/AU, process and route audio or midi, and design personalized virtual control interfaces.

A huge ready to use library

Usine Hollyhock library offer you more than 100 ready to use audio FX and generators to process any live instrument or audio sources.
You’ll find classic FX like delays, filters, panoramic and granular tools, but especially some creative and innovative effects you don’t find in any other audio software.

A powerful timeline

The Grid is perfectly adapted to create complete projects for a solo performance, a band, an interactive installation, or even to create a full score for a video using SMPTE synchronization with our new Video Player.
All racks can be triggered at a precise time and can last as long as you want. Each line has independent durations, and any of the controls can have an automation curve assigned them. Only current, grid-activated racks become visible. This means that your vision is not polluted by unnecessary items.
