Virtual Instrument by UVI

A Collection of Three Instruments Inspired by The Legendary Studio Icon

Costing upwards of $100,000, the dream machine of the 80's was unattainable by most. Used by countless prominent artists including: Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Kate Bush, Herbie Hancock, Jean Michel Jarre, Thomas Dolby and many more, it remains a highly regarded and sought after instrument.

Suffering a fit of nostalgia as we often do, we decided to set about making a new instruments inspired by this legendary studio icon. We ended up making 3; a digital synth, digital drum machine, and multi-phraser. A unique hybrid approach was employed combining our rigid sampling process with the advanced digital processing algorithms and modeling capabilities of the UVI Engine. This approach allows us to capture the raw character of the original machine while facilitating a full array of modern controls. The result is an extremely flexible system that allows you to quickly call up the classic sounds or take the old voices into new sonic territory.

Powerful analog modeled filters, LFO's, envelopes and effects in a beautiful old-school interface await you in this tightly packed but massive sounding 2 GB UVI instrument.

Immediate access to hundreds of sounds and instruments including: Bass, Brass, Bells, Strings, Guitar, Orchestral Hits, Synth, Drums, Percussion, FX, Keys, Piano, Organs, Winds, Reeds and Voices. Efficient and versatile control set allows for everything from quick tweaks to deep sonic exploration.
