Hart Instruments HISE 2.0 is an open-source framework that allows you design own sample-based virtual instruments for PC & Mac!

Hart Instruments has released today HISE 2.0, an open-source platform for designing virtual instruments. HISE can be described as a free and open source alternative to Kontakt 6 / HALion 6 sampler with which you can also design plugins and iOS apps.

Under the hood, HISE is not as deep as the paid products but has a good hybrid sampling engine. In version 2, the developer added a new faster modulation system, MPE support and more.

Hart Instruments HISE 2.0


HISE is a cross-platform open source audio application for building virtual instruments. It emphasizes on sampling, but includes some basic synthesis features for making hybrid instruments. You can build patches, design a custom interface and compile them as a VST / AU plug-in or iOS app.

Major Changes In V.2

  • new modulation system (faster) & cached pool system
  • preliminary raw API for usage of C++ framework
  • MPE support
  • fully HLAC (normalises releases trails of 24-bit samples to use the full bit-depth).
  • Tons of bug fixes, small features.

HISE is available now for free as Standalone application or as VST / AU plugin for Mac OS X and Windows.
