There seems to be a growing trend amongst software instrument developers in recent years of bundling their goods up into an “ultimate” package and offering that package at a considerable discount to their customers over the combined prices of the individual, component items. This has a number of effects. Firstly, the user community tend to […]

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 […]

Hot on the heels of that, comes a new, smaller and complementary library to their Emulation II library, which was based on the E-MU Emulator II sampler. Emulation One is a smaller, leaner […]

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 […]

Normally, when I buy something new, I get a bit giddy, write blog posts about it and such like. Now, although I am posting about this, I’m far from giddy. Decidedly underwhelmed, to be honest, but it’s a necessary acquisition nonetheless. Yup, I just bought my new iLok2. I own my fair share of dongles […]

My love of all things Emulator is well documented. You only need to look at my banner just ^^up there^^ for signs 😉 It’s also no secret that I am keen to collect as many Emulator samples as possible, especially from the EI, EII and Emax machines. There’s not much about. A few sounds here […]

Just lately I have been re-immersing myself in the whole world that is Joy Division/New Order/Factory Records/etc.. in fact, anything from that golden age of musical renaissance that was the New Wave revolution of circa 1979. This has involved re-purchasing Joy Division back catalogue, books, documentaries and films, as well as scouring the interwebs for […]

Some new and interesting developments over at Hollow Sun recently. First up, Steve has started a blog. Now, if you know Steve as I know Steve, this is certainly not his “thing”. He views blogs, much like Twitter and any other form of Social Networking, as a lame and vacuous, self serving waste of time! […]
