Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank releases Complete Toy Museum (UVI Soundpack + Art Book)

UVI

Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank have announced the release of Complete Toy Museum, a new UVI Workstation plug-in expansion that features tons of "ready to play" presets from more than 300 musical toys - a 20 GB library containing more than 21,000 samples and loops carefully recorded in 24 bit / 96 khz with the best gear on earth.

For a limited period, Complete Toy Museum is shipped with a hardback art book called "Toy Instrument". In this art book you'll discover throughout 192 pages the design and nostalgia inspired by these musical machines. Introduction by DJ Spooky, images and text by Eric Schneider, the man behind the Electric Toy collection.

Acoustic Toy Museum
Several passionate owners of musical toy collections gave access to very rare and sometimes very old musical toys. Even a famous museum opened its doors to the sound design team.

The result is a flashy selection of inspiring instruments ready to play with: Toy Pianos, Musical Boxes, Ancient Automates, Wood and Metal Xylophones, Mini Bells, Baby Drums, Toy Guitars, Ukulele, Melodicas, Small Accordions, Harmonicas, Children Percussions, Funny Horns, Musical Gadgets, Musical Cubes, Plastic Tubes and much more.

Loops and phrases are also included for instruments like old music boxes; and let's not forget the Baby Drums and Toy Guitar sections that were played by skillful musicians in top-grade studios.

Electric Toy Museum
Every aspect of each of the 97 electric machine has been captured: multi-sampled instruments with release samples for every note, rhythms converted into sliced loops, GM drumkits created, FX and speech voices carefully organized... You will feel like having all these toys right under your fingertips.

These jewels' character come from their acoustic assembling and the "cheap" speakers they use. To capture the essence of them, they were sampled in a superb-sounding studio room. They took the time to find the right microphone for the right machine, then recorded every note and every sound possible (including release samples, key clicks, etc.), they also recorded drum loops and/or instrument loops.

After editing this huge amount of sounds, they finalized them by trying to find the best way to organize the collection in 10 categories: Children, Developed, Drums & FX, Mini Sampler, Musical Toys, Organ Basic, Silly, Small, Speech & Style-o-phone.

Recording Gear:

  • Converters: Prism and Apogee with Antelope Atomic Clock.
  • Mic Pres & Direct Boxes: Grace Design, D.W Fearn, Universal & SSL.
  • Microphones: Neuman, Bruel & Kjaer, Shoeps & AEA.

"Whatever the kind of music you produce, you will certainly find a place for these incredible sounding toys instruments ." said Alain Etchart, Founder and Director of Marketing at Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank.

Complete Toy Museum is now available for $499, and includes the full version of UVI Workstation and the book Toy Instruments. Complete Toy Museum is also available as digital download at UVI SoundSource.
