Considered by some to be the best analog synthesizer ever designed, the Synthex comes to us from the Italian manufacturer Elka. The Synthex was made famous by Jean Michel Jarre on his 'Rendez vous' EP which features a ripping Lazer Harp sound. Due to the oscillator design and lush filters this synth packs a distinctly thick and raw sound. The Synthex has become increasingly rare with time and finding working units can be a tedious and expensive task. UVI Synthox now brings you the best of this instrument in the form of a convenient and extraordinary sounding soft synth.
To create Synthox, 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 Synthox is a flexible and expansive tool sure to inspire today's producer and musician.
UVI Synthox features a dual-layer architecture and instant preset/layer switching making it an extraordinarily responsive and capable instrument. Layers include all possible base waveforms and noises from the hardware as well as expertly programmed presets. We've gone to great lengths to ensure the authentic sound and natural texture of these machines was preserved and translated clearly in our instruments. We sampled everything, including the raw waveforms with different configurations of the Chorus section.
Take this classic to the next level with the UVI Engine; Synthox comes packed with a wealth of features to enrich and further customize your sounds, including double arpeggios, a step sequencer, LFOs and precision modeled FX - allowing you to explore territory the old hardware couldn't dream of.
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 thick and sizzling textures to funky analog tones and everywhere in-between, UVI Synthox has a distinct and addictive sound.
