UVI has announced the release of Scratch Machine, a standalone version of the virtual scratch instrument available in the Urban Suite bundle.
There’s no way to accurately reproduce the experience of scratching without a turntable but we’ve come pretty close with Scratch Machine. Grab a keyboard or pad controller, load up one of the classic sounds like ‘Fresh’ or a Speak’n’Spell and go crazy! All sounds were recorded directly from decks masterfully controlled by our resident turntablist and scratch artist DJ Quartz, delivering the authentic sound of vinyl in a truly expressive and highly-addictive instrument.
Take your performance a step further by dialing in the independent pitch and speed controls. Then create complex builds and breakdowns by triggering the 6 built-in effects including 2 delays, a phaser, a bit crusher, a reverb and a repeater from your controller keyboard. Add a 3-band EQ and a resonant filter and it’s like having a professional mixer and effect boxes right at your fingertips!
Scratch Machine features
Easy to use, fun to play, high-quality authentic sound.
Independent pitch and speed control, 6 effects plus EQ and resonant filter.
Includes a huge sample library with over 4,200 phrases.
Scratch Machine is available for purchase for $39 USD.
Gospelmusicians has announced the release of TGX-99, a new Yamaha SY-99/TG-77 instrument library for UVI Workstation based on the Pure Synth Platinum platform.
In keeping with the amazing structure of as PSP, we have included ALL of the raw sample waveforms from the actual hardware. You get 4-oscillators in which to combine your waveforms as well as two filters, and two LFOs per oscillator. The arp and gate can be global or per oscillator as well as global and per oscillator effects, depending on the template you choose. In many ways the TGX-99 rivals that of the actual hardware, because of the added modulation sources, the number and quality of effects as well as greater polyphony. The goal of the TGX-99 is to virtually put the feeling of the actual hardware right into your hands.
Since the SY99 contained one of the most sophisticated and advanced FM engines (AFM and RCM) of any of the Yamaha keyboards, we could not replicate this. In fact no one really can. So in order to compensate, we have included a re-creation of the the original 128 factory presets from the actual hardware by using sampling, synthesis, and sophisticated UVI scripting techniques. We were even able to model the actual reverbs of the unit in order to provide the most realistic experience possible to owning the hardware.
Sampled at 96kHz/24-bit using an Apogee Rosetta 200 for pristine A/D conversion.
Dithered down to 44kHz/16-bit using iZotope MBIT+ Advanced Dithering.
Uses FLAC Lossless compression for faster streaming, loading, and RAM optimization.
Contains the complete set of raw waveforms minus individual drum sounds.
Drum kit sounds are included in in the preset patches.
Modeled Impulse Responses of the hardware’s reverb unit.
Includes the hardware’s original 128 factory presets and 64 Wave Rom Presets.
The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $99.99 USD until February 20th, 2015 (regular $149.99 USD).
