UVI has announced the release of the 8-Bit Synth, a virtual instrument that is inspired by the lo-fi hardware sounds of yesteryear.

Previously only available as part of the Toy Suite, the dual-layer engine loaded with authentic hardware samples and hundreds of custom presets is now available separately.

Inspired by some of our favorite vintage computers and gaming systems, 8-Bit Synth delivers a massive collection of authentic sounds created with the hardware. Dial up custom patches created with the Commodore 64, Game Boy, SID Station, Mod Machine and more, and create brand new sonic adventures with the genuine sounds of these classic machines.

A fantastic instrument for crafting chip tunes and beyond, 8-Bit Synth digs deep into the capabilities of the hardware and delivers a surprisingly sweet range of sounds covering everything from classic video game favorites to modern genre-style patches. Don’t let the arcade-inspired exterior fool you, while definitely packed with fun 8-Bit Synth is a serious and versatile instrument covering a broad sonic palette.

8-Bit Synth runs in the free UVI Workstation and Falcon. It is on sale now for an intro price of $59 USD / 59 EUR through February 8th (regular 99 USD/EUR).
