UVI has released Asteroid, a new instrument for creating cinematic rhythms and percussive effects. Here's what they say:
Designed with an intuitive workflow, extensive sample library, and inspiring preset collection of sounds and sequences, Asteroid delivers 7 deeply-tweakable layers that can be used as discrete percussive voices or stacked to create massive hits. Sounds can be processed in a wide variety of ways for great sound design potential, and played back via an integrated 128- step sequencer with interactive performance controls to create epic rhythms, transitions, and effects.
Every sound in Asteroid has been meticulously recorded and edited to provide the highest level of quality, with a wealth of sources from acoustic and electronic drums and orchestral percussions to special effects, foley, and found sounds. The integrated library is massive, containing hundreds of samples, track presets, and sequences, that can all be mixed and matched, or even randomized, to provide inspiration for years to come.
Sounds in Asteroid can be sculpted through a configurable editor, with per-track spatial mixing, 4-voice unison, +/- 4 octaves of pitch shifting, EQ with sub and air bands, transient processing, multi- fx including, drive, bitcrusher, frequency shifter, phaser, flanger, beat repeat, and reverb and delay sends. Choose from stereo mix or multi-out modes, and create a massive sound using the Thrust control. Then master your sound with the integrated bus effects, offering studio-grade IR reverb, digital delay, 3-band EQ with sweepable crossovers, compressor, and limiter.
Asteroid can create epic rhythms, transitions and moving effects by way of an integrated 128-step sequencer. Utilize per-track velocity, pan, pitch, decay and reverb sequencer lanes, and take interactive control over your performance with the modwheel velocity switch to create cinematic percussions, twisted electronic drums, motion effects, transitions and more with your MIDI controller or DAW. Explore hundreds of included patterns or create your own, save them, share them, or drag- and-drop the MIDI.
Intro Price: $99 / 99€ through June 30th, 2021 (Reg. $149 / 149€).
