Gospelmusicians releases Pure Synth Platinum Urban Workstation

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Gospelmusicians has announced the official release of Pure Synth Platinum, a software based rompler and synthesis library that has all of the bread-and-butter samples of a traditional hardware keyboard, combined with all of the synthesis techniques available in the most complex of digital and analog synthesizers.

Gospelmusicians Pure Platinum Synth

That is the concept of Pure Synth Platinum: We give you a “pure synth” in which to create any sound imaginable, rather than just giving you rompler style static samples that you cannot tweak much. Worst of all, if you ever want new inspiration and new sounds, you have to keep buying a ton of expansion packs with more samples, when you’d rather create your own unique custom sounds with the software you already have. We also have professional synth programmers from around the world ready and willing to program new patches, for those of you who rather not worry about programming and just want to play.

Our goal with PSP was to create a very unique hybrid synthesizer and rompler combo that would act as a complete synthesizer rather than giving you just a sample based player where, in many cases, the effects, LFO, amp, and other synthesis techniques are “caked” into the samples. Sure with a rompler, you can tweak the sounds and add effects, but the control you have is limited. Conversely, a synthesizer gives you the raw analog and digital waveforms in which to tweak your own sounds and control the actual wave shaping parameters of the waveform. The bad thing about pure synthesis oscillators (wavetable, FM, analog, etc..) are that they are not good for acoustic type of sounds. This is where PSP comes in! You actually get all of the acoustic waveforms indicative of what samples offer as well as an amazing arsenal of digital and analog synthesis techniques: Analog, Wavetable, Superwave, FM, Transient/Drum, Sub Oscillator, and Noise Generator. All of these synthesis techniques are available to you per oscillator and you can mix and match synthesis and/or samples as you wish.

Combining synthesis and rompler samples allows you to create a very unique hybrid sound, so you can shape and create your sounds how you like. Most of the EDM stuff out there is really starting to all sound the same and we didn’t want to do that. We wanted to create a very unique platform in which you feel as if you have a REAL synthesizer. That’s what made old school synthesizers such as the JD-800, D-50, EX5, and the Wavestation so unique. They had their own character and personality and the sound was original and special! This is what PSP aims to do and we feel we have done it very well. We have basically included virtually all of MachFive’s capabilities (synthesis, samples, effects filters, modulations, arp/gate, SparkVerb) available in a beautiful GUI form.

Gospelmusicians intros Pure Synth Platinum for UVI

Related: , , Posted in news on Aug 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Gospelmusicians has introduced Pure Synth Platinum, a virtual instrument for UVI.

Gospelmusicians Pure Synth Platinum

Have you ever wondered why you could never find a software synthesizer that is as good sounding and flexible as the hardware synthesizer/keyboards such as a Motif, Fantom, or Kronos? Have you ever wished you could just pull up an array of patches and sounds just like you would with your hardware keyboard or synth? Remember the old days when a synth or keyboard had a ton of sounds that did not sound super realistic, but had a ton of character, expressiveness, and was just down right fun to play? Well, this is what Pure Synth Platinum is!

Pure Synth Platinum (PSP) is a software based rompler AND synthesis library that has all of the bread-and-butter samples of a traditional hardware keyboard, combined with all of the synthesis techniques available in the most complex of digital and analog synthesizers. That is the concept of PSP: We give you the “pure waveforms” in which to create any sound imaginable, rather than just giving you rompler style/static, samples that you cannot tweak much. Worst of all, if you ever want new inspiration and new sounds, you have to keep buying a ton of expansion packs with more samples, when you’d rather create your own unique custom sounds with the software you already have. But what if you are not a synth programmer? That is fine! We have professional synth programmers from around the world ready and willing to program new patches, so that you don’t have to do all of the work.

Pure Synth Platinum features

  • 5.2GB (uncompressed) Samples.

UVI releases EGP Hybrid Electric Grand Piano

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

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.
