UVI has announced the release of the PX V8, a virtual analog synthesizer instrument based on the ’80s American polyphonic synth Voyetra Eight.

The new Prototype Series instrument comes with huge analog sounds with a distinct character. It includes hundreds of custom designed presets.

With PX V8, UVI aims to present a rich analog instrument thanks to the unique voice cards, real analog unison and deep modulation system of the original 8-voice analog polyphonic synth.

Originally released in 1982, the Voyetra 8 was a rackmount analog synth weighing a hefty 78 lb.. Now exceedingly rare, this synthesizer offered an extraordinary modulation system by way of 14 parameter pages, and yielded a deep and powerful sound thanks in part to its component design and real analog unison.

After a multi-year journey UVI are proud to present 400 presets, 176 layers, and over 25,000 samples detailing the uncompromising analog sound of the Voyetra 8. Ready-to-play sounds are available in the usual flavors such as bass, brass, keys, leads, organs, pads, poly, strings and more, while a 2-layer design loaded with envelopes, multimode filters, modulation, arpeggiators and a capable effect section allow for the creation of completely new and unique sounds.

Every base sound in PX V8 was recorded with and without the Voyetra 8’s unison mode enabled, simply toggle the ‘V8 Unison’ switch on the UI’s main page to switch between them. Combined with PX V8’s dual-layer design this allows for the creation of thick and dynamic analog tones that would have been impossible to create on the original hardware.

PX V8 for Falcon and the free UVI Workstation is available a the introductory price of $49 USD/49 EUR through December 10th, 2018 (regular $79 USD/79 EUR).
