The Rhodes Chroma is a unique specimen, easily identified by its vibrant looks and sound. One of the first microprocessor-based analog synths, Chroma was the last keyboard designed by ARP, a pioneering synthesizer house of the seventies, before Rhodes later began selling it in early eighties. The sound of Chroma is very, very good - rich and immediate.
To create Kroma, we carefully restore the synth, create a massive array of presets and deeply multi-sample them, professionally process and master the sounds, infuse them into the industry proven UVI Engine - giving you endless sound shaping options, then wrap the results in an immaculately prepared GUI and then you've got a brand-new soft synth with the brilliant depth and character of classic hardware.
From modern prog and pop to dance, electro, hip-hop and experimental, UVI Kroma is a flexible and expansive tool sure to inspire today's producer and musician.
UVI Kroma comes loaded with dozens of presets programmed on a fully restored unit including Arpeggio, Bass, Bells, Brass, FX, Leads, Pads, Strings, Sweeps. Even the basic waveforms of the unit were sampled to allow design of new patches. Take complete control of this veritable classic with a built in arpeggiator, step sequencer, LFOs and precision modeled FX.
Kroma comes packed with 134 presets expertly crafted by our sound design team, giving you a huge library of unique timeless sounds and textures.
At UVI we've been producing sound for over 20 years and designing our own software for over 12. A conclusion: virtual sample-based instruments have a more defined character and distinct sound quality than those based on digital modeling. UVI hybrid instruments are now more flexible and authentic than a simple simulation, giving you the best of both worlds.
Taking these classic tones into new sonic territory, the UVI Engine delivers massive unison spreads, abundant polyphony, thick-modeled filters, drive, reverbs, modulation, FX and much, much more.
From elegant and brassy to analog atmosphere and everywhere in-between, UVI Kroma brings back a forgotten classic with an arsenal of sound sculpting tools exclusive to the UVI Engine.
