Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank releases Acoustic Piano

Ultimate Sound Bank Acoustic Piano

Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank has released Acoustic Piano, a new UVI Soundpack.

Acoustic Piano features surely one of the best sounding sampled pianos in the market. True to our beliefs, we don’t think it’s about figures (like velocity , memory, number of mikes) but about feeling. A good sounding piano is a rare alchemy between the instrument, the acoustic in the recording studio, the microphones and above all, the engineer’s taste.

Acoustic Piano features

  • Steinway D recorded at Guillaume Tell Studio
  • 2.5GB library, every single note was carefully multi-sampled at multiple velocity levels for both normal playing and with the sustain pedal pressed.
  • UVI Engine advanced keygroup layers and rule switching provides for the sustain pedal and release samples to perform and “feel” like a real piano.

Acoustic Piano is available for download for $59 USD (ex VAT).

UltimateSoundBank Electric Toy Museum

Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank has released Electric Toy Museum, a sound library featuring 97 vintage musical toys.

  • Developed — Sometimes real advanced keyboards are hidden behind the word “toys”, whose technique nonchallenges some tedious semi-pro keyboards. (9 machines)
  • Drums & FX — Especially designed for drums and FX, whether they are pure sound FX machines or drum machines. That’s the rhythm of the household. (13 machines)
  • Mini Sampler — Seriously impressing for their days and intent, these keyboards came with a microphone and/or RCA sampling facility. (3 machines)
  • Musical Toys — More toys than musical, most of the time with no keyboard, some of them hide very surprising features… (15 machines)
  • Organ Basic — The electric organs that have been scattered about in youngsters’ bedrooms for the last forty years. (10 machines)
  • Silly — It’s not they sound poorly, it’s not they were too quickly designed, it’s not we don’t love them, it’s… just totally silly!. (10 machines)
  • Small — These keyboards were designed to be “child’ fingers-compliant”. Some machines from this category became iconic. (11 machines)
  • Speech — These are the talkative toys, whether it’s for learning spelling, just for fun or to make music. (3 machines)
  • Style-o-phone — One of the best and oldest kind of musical toys ever designed. (11 machines)

Electric Toy Museum is now available for $249 USD. It includes the full version of UVI Workstation.
