UVI has released 4 free presets from their latest library Digital Synsations.
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, the synthesizer geography began to change. A new strain of keyboards began appearing in shops, records, and on stage; matte black mammoths shirking the familiar clump arrays for invariant clusters of separate buttons and glowing green TV defenses. They gestured further than a shift in commerce with our musical counterparts ‚ they steered in the period of the digital synth.
To those willing to abstain from the proximity and ease- of- editing of the analog synth world these keyboards offered amazing features for the time; massive polyphony, expansive onboard sequencers, pattern memory, and removable storehouse, and digital goods. In addition to the immediate benefits of digital processing, some of these keyboards also actualized innovative mongrel conflation ways, combining sample playback with classic styles allowing synthesists and musicians the occasion to explore a new sonic at home.
Digital Synsations includes over 500 presets expertly programmed on a fully restored Yamaha SY77, Korg M1, Roland D50 and Ensoniq VFX‚ used by many of the greats including Depeche Mode, The Cure, Pet Shop Boys, Vangelis, Brian Eno, Toto, 808 State, Jean Michael Jarre and more.
If you’re looking for a new take on the 90′s sound or just some new classic synth inspiration then look no further.
The custom patches were deeply multi-sampled using top-shelf equipment and edited to perfection before being sent off for professional mastering. These sonics became the foundation for UVI’s new hybrid virtual instrument and combined with the UVI Engine give you the true character of these classic synths with all of the peculiarities and programming by-products intact. Extremely easy to use and fast to edit environment complete with all the features you expect from a modern virtual instrument.
