UVI Synth Anthology 2 on sale. $89. Not sure if this is lowest its ever been.

https://www.uvi.net/synth-anthology-ii
It's the lowest you will get. Get it from AudioDeluxe if you are interested and earn some deluxe bucks.

Great collection at that price, and it is something that has prevented me from getting the (overwhelming) Vintage Vault 3.

Contacted support to see if they will be offering upgrade pricing.

v2 brings 500 new presets sampled from 25 new instruments (2518 total presets, 77 instruments) and 5 new effects, which is IMO not that big of an update for no upgrade pricing.

Synth Anthology 2 came out in October 2016, so you may not see upgrade pricing now.

But since SA 2 is on sale now, I would also recommend contacting UVI support for anyone interested. They might be kind enough for a special upgrade coupon during this short sale window. :)

Also, version 2 is so much better than 1 even if I just take into account the GUI. Definitely worth upgrading. :tu:

I've been getting into synths recently, and picked up Analogue Lab 4 a few months ago - discounted with my Minilab Mk2. Would Synth Antholgy 2 be worth acquiring as well... or, more of the same?... just noticed the sale because of this thread.

Thanks

Analog Lab and the Arturia plugins are based on circuit emulation tech and UVI's suites are largely based around sampled instruments. You get fewer of the synth controls to play with than V Collection, but probably as many if not more than Analog Lab. The sounds you do get are more 'authentic' to a point. Also there's very little overlap between the synths covered by Arturia and the Synth Anthology, the latter has sounds from a lot of newer synths and isn't just from machines over 20 years old.

What I would say is when the next sale comes round get your hands on the full V collection - it's really worth it if you want to explore the sounds the synths make rather than just ride presets. Or preferably, win the lottery and buy the actual hardware and employ full time staff to maintain them :)

Hey,

Thanks for the reply, WTG... I was looking at the V7, and almost bought it "used" here on KVR. Some of the newer synths to the collection, like Synthi V, were just too heavy on the CPU - sounded wicked, though!... I'll think about SA 2... have a few more days for the sale.

I doubt any use contacting UVI, they have tradition of not giving any upgrade discounts, see e.g. the recent case VVV3.

That's sad, I understand your disappointment. However, I got some good support from them for SA 2 upgrade last year.

Hopefully they will relook at their upgrade policy and try to make it more valuable and fair for everyone.

I have heard the plugins are extremely buggy...not worth the time to download. One is even being reported as having a virus (Harqules). YMMV.

Synth Anthology 2 is tempting but i might just wait for the JP Legacy to go on sale. I like those sounds.
