UVI release Mello, free for a limited time!

Three of my favourite words. UVI FREE MELLOTRON So when these words can be used together, this makes me happy! A couple of weeks ago, UVI, sample library creators extraordinaire, announced the release of Mello, a compact library based on the legendary Mellotron and designed for use with either their free UVI Workstation or the […]

UVI IRCAM Prepared Piano Review

5

I suppose it has to be said that the piano is a bit of a one trick pony. I mean, it has one sound set whose sounds can only be affected by the velocity with which you strike the keys, and the level of sustain you apply using the pedals. Maybe opening the lid has […]

UVI The Beast Review

2

I think it’s fair to say that, of all the digital, sampling behemoths of the late 70s and early 80s, the New England Digital Synclavier was probably the biggest, most expensive, most desirable of all. Why? Well, it was, arguably, far superior sonically than its competitors and had a far higher level of specification in […]

Review: UVI Emulation One

1

I’ve always thought that E-MU‘s finest moment was when they decided to call their first sampler the Emulator. Not only does it encompass the company name, it is descriptively accurate of what the machine does. The name lives on to this day, albeit in the pretty much forgotten Emulator X3 software sampler. I own Emulator […]

UVI Darklight IIx Review

9

It wasn’t that long ago that people like me, people with a passion for vintage samplers such as the Fairlight, Synclavier, Emulator, WaveFrame, et al, had very little to go on when it came to possessing some of those sounds that we had grown up with, to use in our music. It was a strange […]

UVI WaveFrame Sound Collection Review

0

If I was to ask you to name a mega-sampler, or maybe even to define that type of instrument, most of you would offer up answers like “Fairlight” or “Synclavier“. Chances are, none of you would come up with the WaveFrame AudioFrame. And I wouldn’t blame you either. When it comes to the “Uber Samplers”, […]

UVI String Machines for UVI Workstation Review

4

For those of us old enough to remember, and yes, that does include me, early synthesizers and their manufacturers were seemingly obsessed with their machines being able to accurately recreate the sounds made by other, more natural instruments. Check out the presets on any early synth and you would find voices such as Oboe, Trumpet […]

UVI Electro Suite Review

2

If anyone is thinking that my reviews on UVI products are coming thick and fast, you’d be right. No, they’re not paying me! But they do seem to be ramping up releases of late. Maybe it’s the result of a winter spent in hibernation, ensconced in a sound proof bunker, producing instrument after instrument. Well, […]

UVI Analogic Piano AP-09 for UVI Workstation Review

1

Released in 1980, the Roland EP-09 was a very simplistic effort by the Japanese company in producing an affordable electric piano. Compact, light and relatively cheap, this was far from a “pro” product, its built in speaker being a give-away feature of an item destined for consumer’s homes rather than the great stages or studios […]

UVI Emulation II & Drumulation Review

2

I’m an 80’s child. I was born in 1970, and I always maintain that I was born 10 years too late. As much as I’d have enjoyed being around when The Beatles ruled the earth, it’s the subsequent two decades that do it for me and I’d have revelled in being a teenager in the […]
