UVI releases UltraMini 1.5 hybrid synthesizer
UVI has announced the release of UltraMini 1.5, an update to its feature-rich hybrid software synthesizer based on the classic sounds of the original ‘affordable analog synth’.
With over 200 new presets, a low-CPU mode and computer-based activation, UltraMini is leaner, meaner and easier to use than ever.
The same thick analog tones, meaty harmonics and modeled filters that made v1.0 so aggressive are back in spades. Over 200 new presets have been forged by the sound design team at UVI, giving you over 600 in total. Find the sounds you’re looking for quickly with convenient category browsing and explore a wide range of analog timbres and soundscapes provided by the newly updated patch library.
UltraMini 1.5 also introduces a new low-CPU mode, known internally as UltraMini LE. This new mode significantly reduces the processor overhead by replacing the dual multimode filters with dual single-mode LP filters. The new filters offers the same great sound as the original at a fraction of the CPU cost, making UltraMini a no-brainer go-to synth for classic analog sounds. The new low-CPU mode is perfect for laptop-based producers, composers working with large multitrack arrangements or anyone who needs to keep their processor use in check.
Also included is compatibility with the completely revised iLok system; now supporting computer-based activation. Utilizing the free iLok License Manager, your UltraMini license can now be stored on a computer hard drive or a physical iLok dongle. Furthermore you’re free to move your license from computer to iLok or vice versa at will, giving you the ultimate in convenience and portability. Gone are the days of dongle dependance — authorize the way you want to.
UltraMini 1.5 is available to purchase for a suggested retail price of $149 USD / 115 EUR. Existing owners of UltraMini can download the update free of charge.
