UVI releases EGP Hybrid Electric Grand Piano

Related: , , , Posted in news on May 14, 2014 - comment 0 comments

UVI has announced the release of EGP, a hybrid electric grand piano instrument based on the Yamaha CP-70.

An entire piano studio at your fingertips, EGP was approached with the goal of creating the most comprehensive and authentic electric grand piano software instrument ever, offering multiple preparations, 5 fully mixable channels, discrete EQ, effects and dynamics for both the electric and acoustic signals, versatile performance options and more.

A core library of over 10,000 samples was created utilizing high-end microphones, preamps and converters. 5 signals were captured including the raw electric output and the instrument acoustics miked in both L/R and M/S configurations. Complete control is given to the end-user, allowing for gain and mute control on a per-mic and group level. Additionally, EQ, effects and dynamics are provided for the acoustic and electric signals independently. Add a touch of reverb to the acoustic section, some overdrive, chorus and a longer attack to the electric signal, EQ both to taste—the sound shaping options are deep, quick to control and immensely rewarding.

EGP offers an extensive sonic range well beyond that of a typical electric grand. Multiple preparations like pick, bow, ebow, mutes, brush and more were recorded allowing you to create everything from plucked melodies to shimmering drone sounds in immaculate detail. Each preparation was approached with the greatest care, capturing round robins, release samples, pedal noise and sympathetic resonance. Combined with ADSR amp control and performance options like built-in wheel strum, EGP is an extremely dynamic and expressive instrument with a wide sonic range.

Pristine sound quality and an elegant UI are just the beginning. Under the hood of EGP you’ll find UVI’s sophisticated Engine XT™. With over 10 years of R+D behind it, Engine XT now sports an advanced, realtime compression system providing up to 7x faster load times and an average 70% reduction in file size. This translates to a dramatic improvement in workflow and delivers EGPs massive 20GB sample footprint in a mere 4.7GB package.

EGP is available for purchase for $299 USD.

UVI Vector Pro

UVI has announced the release of Vector Pro, a new suite of instruments aimed at the imaginative sounds of vector synthesis.

With a massive library of over 30gb, Vector Pro offers a staggering detail of what’s possible with classics such as the Sequential Prophet VS and FM-infused Yamaha SY22. 3 separate instruments provide an array of expressive musical options each with deep editing and performance capabilities. Over 500 factory patches deliver everything from powerful leads and evolving ambiences to surging rhythmic tapestries—an abundance of timbres suitable for all styles and genres.

Sound designers at UVI programmed and multi-sampled hundreds of custom patches on a number of restored machines providing a faithful and comprehensive core library for Vector Pro. A true exposition of these machines capabilities can be heard, from classic tones to new and experimental soundscapes. Inclusion of multi-sampled raw waveforms in Vector Pro VX allows for the creation of custom patches, while its dual-layer architecture delivers independent amp, filter, stereo, modulation and arpeggiator controls providing vast opportunities for sound design.

Vector Pro also features a newly improved licensing model allowing for 3 concurrent authorizations on any combination of computer hard drives and iLok keys. This enhancement provides users with multiple workstations an immediate workflow improvement by eliminating the need to manually move a single authorization from system to system.

As with all UVI instruments Vector Pro is powered by the UVI Engine, leveraging analogmodeled filters, a flexible modulation architecture and a vast library of sophisticated studio effects to provide intuitive control and superb sound quality. All instruments in Vector Pro can be loaded in the free UVI Workstation, providing native 64-bit performance, comprehensive plug-in compatibility with all major DAWs, stand-alone operation and dynamic performance controls.

Vector Pro is available to purchase for the introductory price of $149 USD / 115 EUR through February 28th, 2014 (regular price $199 USD / 149 EUR).

Gospel Musicians release FM TiNES electric piano library

Gospelmusicians FM TiNES

Gospel Musicians has announced the launch of FM TiNES, a dedicated electric piano library that focuses on the 80′s sound.

FM TiNES is a sample and synth library containing over 20GB of the prettiest and most inspirational electric pianos ever heard. Our goal was to cover the complete genre of electric piano patches and not just FM. From D50 type bells, beautiful pads, lush strings, and multi-layered FM EPs, FM TiNES will be the number one electric piano library to go to for that 80s/90s sound. And because we are vintage synth addicts, we included FM emulations of the classic o1W Dyno, the JD Crystal EP, a Dyno-My-Piano, and who could forget the MKS-20 EPs.

FM Tines is a complete 80′s electric piano library and synth with an assortment of pianos, pads, strings, bells in which to use along or layer with. Given the library has 4 separate element slots, you can mix, match, layer, EQ, and filter each individual element/oscillator to your liking. The final stage includes the newly SparkVerb™ by UVI which is available for all three elements.

FM TiNES features

  • 148 patches and 75 distinct EP sounds
  • Size: 20GB (Huge Detailed and Exhaustive Library).
  • Recorded at 44kHz/24-bit directly from the Yamaha SY99 analog outputs.
  • Converted to 16-bits using iZotope’s MBit+ for maximum quality (We have decided to convert to 16-bit to save on hardrive space and RAM).

FM Tines for UVI Workstation Player and MachFive 3 is on sale for $99.99 USD until February 1st, 2014.
