UVI releases Noctua - Free Cinematic Instrument from the mind of Venus Theory


UVI has released Noctua, a powerful new cinematic instrument from the mind of sound designer and YouTube creator, Venus Theory.

A multi-layer instrument built on hand- crafted samples, all designed, recorded, and processed by Venus Theory, Noctua combines the worlds of hardware synthesis and boutique effects to deliver an exquisite collection of sprawling soundscapes and evocative cinematic worlds. With a featured design, per-layer microtonal sequencers, custom single-knob effect chains, and master bus processing, Noctua is a rich and detailed cinematic instrument and sound design tool. Noctua is available now at no charge, a gift from UVI and Venus Theory to mark the season.

At Noctua's core is a flexible 2+1 layer design. Users can configure the 2 main layers with any sound from three categories, including; 'Effects Box', sourced from handmade FX box instruments designed by Venus Theory and processed with pedals and granular processing chains, 'Analog', recorded from a selection of analog synths and pedal chains, and 'EMF', electro-magnetic field recordings, transformed and multi-sampled using various techniques and effect chains to create usable sonic instruments. Finally, a morphable sub-oscillator delivers a rich and powerful low-end.

Each of the layers in Noctua has its own microtonal sequencer, offering built-in randomization and probability, allowing everything from subtle modulation to complex voicing and progressions. Noctua also offers a custom designed selection of one-knob FX chains, providing performance-based transformation over the sounds energy and texture, configurable per-layer reverb and delay send effects, and powerful master bus processing including overdrive, compressor, eq, and maximizer to finalize your sound.

Noctua includes 100 presets, professionally designed by both Venus Theory and UVI, and provides everything needed to edit and rework existing patches to taste, or create your own from scratch.

Noctua runs inside of UVI Workstation is available from UVI free of charge at uvi.net/noctua
