UVI releases UltraMini sound library

UVI UltraMini

UVI has introduced the UVI UltraMini, a hybrid instrument that includes two fully independent instruments with uniquely skinned GUIs – inspired by the Minimoog D 1971 and the Minimoog Voyager XL 2011 (Limited Edition).

The Minimoog was made available to the public in 1971 and continued to be produced with very little change over the next 10 years. Considered the most popular synth ever by some, there’s no doubt the instrument has led a prolific life, leaving a massive wake in its path – changing perceptions and influencing synthesizer design to this day. The Minimoog has a near-perfect balance of simplicity and sonic beauty.

One of UVI’s specialties is making hybrid instruments. High fidelity sample-based waveforms produced by real circuits; in real machines give the instrument a pure sound from the start. Then accurately modeled filters and effects are used on the backend to shape and control the sound, spending precious CPU cycles only where they’re needed. For this approach to work, you need to build an amazing library of sounds and marry them to a truly advanced DSP engine. This is exactly what UVI have done for UltraMini thanks to hundreds of man-hours of tedious multisampling and the award-winning UVI Engine™.

UVI UltraMini features

  • 3-oscillator configuration.
  • Amplitude and filter key follow.
  • Unrestricted polyphony.
  • Mono retrigger.
  • Per-oscillator amplitude.
  • Stereo.
  • Color and drive control.
  • A built in bit crusher.
  • Phaser.
  • Delay.
  • Limiter and our advanced algorithmic reverb – SparkVerb.
  • Built-in phraser and arpeggiator assignable per-oscillator.
  • Step and LFO modulations and a huge library of expertly crafted presets.

The UltraMini for UVI Workstation 2 and MachFive 3 is available to purchase for $149 USD.

dboxSamples dmoox

dboxSamples has announced the release of dmoox, a Kontakt sound library that captures the heart and soul of vintage instruments.

dmoox is a sampled instrument. It uses pre-recorded audio clips to generate sounds. Is neither a virtual synth nor a plugin. dmoox benefits from the extensive script programming of Kontakt – the world leading software sampler, bringing you an enhanced experience in music making technology.

We looked back into our gear room to recreate the Midimoog by Studio Electronics, one electronic music’s forgotten legend. We wanted to represent all its sonic magic into one single digital instrument for total recall at your finger tips. We have sampled every note of this analogue monster individually for approximately 4 seconds using high end converters, recording everything at 24bits. Once the sound was sorted we decided to give the user a more pleasant experience by crafting a truly unique 3D interface not yet seen in a product of this kind. Add to this 7 onboard effects, pitch envelope, arp and unison, then you begin to realize the truly powerful nature of this instrument.

dmoox for Kontakt is available to purchase for £24.90 GBP.
