UVI has announced the release of UVX-10P, a new virtual instrument inspired by 3 classic analog synthesizers, the JX-10, MKS-70 and JX-8P.
UVX-10P recalls the last true analog synthesizers from the famed masterminds behind the Juno and Jupiter series, including the Super JX – a 12-voice, 24-oscillator analog monster capable of lush tones and crushing analog bass. A pristine JX-10, MKS-70, and JX-8P were tirelessly programmed and sampled in high-resolution through a world-class signal chain, capturing every nuance and detail. Every sound was recorded twice, with and without the built-in chorus, resulting in a comprehensive sonic backbone of nearly 9gb of samples. The result is a rich and versatile analog-inspired instrument, faithful to the sound of classic hardware but with a modern studio bite.
UVX-10P delivers a fully-featured hardware inspired interface, complete with ADSR amp, analog-modeled multimode filter, LFO, step modulator, multiple effects, and easy mod-wheel mapping of useful parameters. Tweak and perform over 170 factory patches in realtime or craft your own with a range of raw wave samples.
A perfect complement to UVX-3P, UVX-10P delivers a huge analog sound at an outstanding price. Add a piece of vintage synth history to your collection today!
The UVX-10P library is available to purchase for $99 USD.
