UVI releases "UVI Darklight IIx" and updates UVI Workstation to v2.0.6

UVI has released Darklight IIx, a new UVI instrument, inspired by "the most mythical Computer Music Instrument of the 80s".

Costing upwards of $100,000, the dream machine of the 80s was unattainable by most. Used by countless prominent artists including: Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Kate Bush, Herbie Hancock, Jean Michel Jarre, Thomas Dolby and many more, it remains a highly regarded and sought after instrument.

UVI has created a complete set of instruments, sounds and sonic tools deeply inspired by the original digital monster. A unique, hybrid process of exhaustive multi-sampling, analysis, and advanced scripts for audio processing allowed UVI to not only capture the original character of this machine but to enhance its ability with a host of today's most powerful analog modeled filters, LFOs, envelopes and effects -- packaged in an old-school interface.

Darklight IIx offers several 'Pages', each an instrument on its own:

Page P - "Organic" Digital Sound:

  • Immediate access to hundreds of sounds and instruments including: Bass, Brass, Bells, Strings, Guitar, Orchestral Hits, Synth, Drums, Percussion, FX, Keys, Piano, Organs, Winds, Reeds and Voices.
  • Efficient and versatile control set allows for everything from quick tweaks to deep sonic exploration.
  • Accurate reproduction of aliasing characteristics.
  • More than 250 ready-to-play presets.
  • A multitude of effects, including the new UVI SparkVerb, allow you to create sounds like the original machine and process them to sound like your favorite cult records from the 80s or something totally new.

Page B - Digital Drum Machine:

  • 80s-style beatbox with step sequencer.
  • Hundreds of authentic vintage drums and percussion sounds.

Page U - Creative Multi-Phraser:

  • UVI exclusive multi-phraser; 3 parts with 3 sounds and 3 smart step sequencers.
  • Create 3-track arrangements or moving drones, let your imagination run.

"All of these combine to present you with the soul of this mythical machine, packaged in an easy-to-use interface with modern controls for enhanced expression and musicality", said Alain J Etchart, UVI Creative Manager.

Darklight IIx is compatible with all Windows and Mac OS X DAWs via the free UVI Workstation (2.0.6+). It also loads in the full-featured MOTU MachFive 3 sampler.

Price: $199
