Phase Distortion Suite

  • A 3-instrument suite inspired by the distinct character of PD synthesis
  • Over 470 patches deliver vintage and modern phase distortion sounds
  • Explore the factory presets or craft your own sounds with raw waveforms

For us at UVI the CZ series from Casio is a longstanding favorite. When we approached the Cameo project we wanted to do something special that not only highlights the amazing sounds of these classic synths but that offers something new to our fellow CZ aficionados.

We began with a number of fully-serviced classics, including the Casio CZ1, CZ101, CZ1000, CZ2300S, CZ3000 and CZ5000, and ended up with 3 instruments—each with a different approach, unique sonic character and inspiration.

Ob Legacy

Homage to a Synthesizer Luminary

  • 6 instruments explore the sounds of a legendary American designer
  • 1,400+ presets deliver the analog sounds of real hardware
  • Easy-to-use, deeply-customizable sample-based instruments

One of the most prolific figures in synthesizer history is the maverick engineer and designer Tom Oberheim. His efforts can be heard across hundreds of albums, decades of pioneering instrument designs, and experienced through conveniences we take for granted on a daily basis including preset memory and MIDI. His influence is as great as any and his designs have stood the test of time better than most, with models in production today that have changed little in over 40 years. The sound of his instruments is distinct and inherently musical, with a character that's often described as "lush" and "massive", and rightly so.

PX Apollo

Forebear of the Polyphonic Analog 

  • Based on a rare polyphonic analogue synth prototype from the ‘70s
  • An intuitive interface for both quick edits and deep customization
  • Use ready-to-play patches or create your own

PX Apollo is based on a rare synthesizer prototype from the early ‘70s of which only 2 are known to exist. Part of a larger project that was eventually abandoned, this instrument was the precursor to one of the world’s first and most prolific polyphonic analog synthesizers. With a sound that can be described as rich, warm and surreal, this instrument was extraordinarily playable for the time, sporting velocity sensitivity and a performance interface, while its polyphonic 71-voice architecture signaled the coming paradigm shift in synthesizer design that would soar during the following decade.

A Tribute to the Korg PS-3200

  • Incredible sounds from the rare 48-voice KORG PS-3200
  • Over 220 patches covering classic and modern styles
  • Deeply editable instrument with pristine sound quality

UVS-3200 brings you the rare and exceedingly warm sounds of a complex and stunning piece of synthesizer history, the KORG PS-3200, perfectly restored and deeply sampled in all its vintage analog glory. Built in a very limited quantity during the late '70s this Japanese beauty featured a semi-modular 48-voice polyphonic engine. Each voice was equipped with 2 VCOs, of which each had its own VCF and LFO. The PS-3200 also featured a remarkable 16 patches of memory recall (a fantastic convenience at the time). Settings could be saved and restored at any time by way of the front panel or optional remote. This synth also featured a unique keyboard controller with scalable CV joystick providing a fun and dynamic performance angle.

80s Japanese Maiden Revived

  • Inspired by a rare Japanese 8-voice analog synth
  • Over 250 patches of vintage analog warmth with modern controls
  • Production-ready presets make great starting points for your own 

UVX80 is based on a well known Japanese manufacturer’s first analog polyphonic synth, a digitally-controlled 2+1 oscillator, 8-voice, 61-key instrument launched in 1984 with a gorgeous and futuristic-looking visual stance. Technically comparable to the JX-3P, this synth boasted a more robust architecture with 2 extra voices, a sub-oscillator and real pulse-width modulation. Despite its technical advantages and profound sonic capability it would find a similar fate, never managing great commercial success but attracting a cult following that’s present even today. While not as difficult to edit as the 3P, this synth shared the lack of explicit controls found on the wildly popular but more basic Juno-106 that launched the same year. A truly progressive design for the time, you’d never know it was analog by looking at it, but there’s no mistaking the warm and punchy sound this keyboard produces - it’s a legitimate analog beast, and somewhat of a sleeper gem from the era.

  • Throwback to the origins of sampling with this quintessential ‘60s studio instrument
  • The true vintage grit of the original machine with modern software convenience
  • Use presets as starting points for your own patch design

Hark back to the heyday of classic rock and one instrument stands above the rest, a 350lb behemoth that would forever change the way we think about making music. At the heart of this monster was an array of tape machines, one per note on the attached keyboard, each playing a uniquely recorded sound. With only 8 seconds of tape per key and a cumbersome frame this machine had its limitations but was nonetheless impressive for its time, boasting a multitimbral and truly polyphonic 'engine'. Instantly made famous by the Beatles hit 'Strawberry Fields Forever' and used by countless others including The Moody Blues, Rolling Stones, and prog rock legends Yes, this was the 'must-have' sound of the 60's. While its use fell out of fashion the implications it made have become fundamental to modern music production.

Tribute to the 80's Japanese Super-Synth

  • Inspired by the sounds of 3 iconic Japanese analog polyphonics
  • 170+ presets deliver authentic hardware sound with modern controls
  • Use presets as starting points for your own patch design

In 1985 the world was introduced to a Japanese 12-voice, 24-oscillator analog synthesizer par excellence and the last true analog synth of its lineage. Fashioned with a sparse aesthetic, a lack of knobs made the system a bit of a chore to program but an external controller could be attached, cheerfully reuniting synthesists with the immediacy and rapid programming speed of its ever-popular sibling lines. This synth is known for an immense and capable analog sound, even some digital textures; it's simply a magnificent machine. Programming capabilities were equally rich with independent control of 2 DCOs per voice, 2 EGs, 2 VCFs, onboard chorus and even a sequencer (albeit a limited one).

Classic Japanese Analog from the 80's

  • Authentic analog sounds with vintage Japanese soul
  • Over 160 presets provide ready-to-play basses, leads, pads and more
  • Use presets as starting points for your own patch design

UVX-3P takes inspiration from a classic 6-voice Japanese synth introduced in 1983. With a rather sparse control panel this synth signaled an industry shift towards less complicated preset players aimed at getting the famous Japanese analog sound into the hands of semi-pros and hobbyists who often couldn’t afford or were intimidated by the more expensive ‘control dense’ models.

Often overlooked due to its more conservative appearance this synth was in no way technically inferior. It offered many of the same components as its more expensive siblings, a break-out programmer, and even boasted dual DCOs making it somewhat of a sleeper powerhouse. With a darker and edgier sound than its ‘cosmic’ brethren, this synth was put to use by many well known pop acts such as Stevie Nicks, Vince Clark and The Cure, and electronica pioneers such as Orbital and The Future Sound of London.

In the summer of 1986 a renowned American synth manufacturer released a machine with a remarkable new method of constructing sound, that machine was the Sequential Prophet VS and the method was vector synthesis. A ground-breaking instrument in its time and still sought-after to this day, the Prophet VS was ill-fated and its failure signaled the end of Sequential's distinguished legacy. Needless to say the tonal range and sheer flexibility of the Prophet VS was brilliant.
