UVI releases Soul Drums with intro pricing


UVI has released Soul Drums, a "deeply-editable and modern drum instrument with rich heritage, echoing the greats of Motown while fusing the best of vintage and modern hardware and techniques".

Soul Drums is available now with a special intro price of $99/99€ through May 1st, 2022.

Here's what UVI says:

Designed to give you an immediate and inspiring drum partner in your DAW, Soul Drums delivers a powerful and deeply flexible instrument with 14 mixable mics, a fully-customizable bleed matrix, effects, multi-out, an expansive selection of hand-crafted kits and patterns, integrated mapping presets for most electronic drum kits, and much more. With Soul Drums you can create drum sessions, rich with natural character and depth, anytime you need them.

The antithesis of clean and clinical, Soul Drums was conceived from the beginning to embody the golden age of soul and allow a new generation to create within it. Starting with a hand-picked selection of drums and microphones in Studio C at Criteria Recording Studios (formerly The Hit Factory) in Miami, with award-winning engineer Eric Schilling at the helm, along with Bob Olhsson from the famous Motown Hitsville studio, UVI recorded over 150,000 samples through the original Neve 8078 console. Editing and instrument design was a multi-year project, including many cycles of experimentation between sound designers, musicians, engineers, and artists to find the just-right blend of sound, performance, and usability.

While character is an important appeal of Soul Drum's sound, UVI wanted it to be a dynamic and versatile instrument capable of working across styles, with numerous ways to augment it - from changing drum models and exciters to play modes, with up to 9 velocity layers and 6 round robins for a fluid and natural sound. 11 pages of parameters cover everything from mic and channel controls to a fully-editable bleed matrix mixer, effects including tape delay emulation and convolution reverb, and a built-in sequencer. And for a modern twist the Bass, Snare, and Hats offer a second digital drum voice, allowing you to layer one of 150 unique samples per drum to either replace or layer-up drum sounds.

Soul Drums comes loaded with an expansive selection of hand-crafted kits tailored to genre and over 1000 built-in patterns that can be drag-and-dropped to your DAW for further editing. With everything from grooves and breakbeats from the '60s and '70s, funk, jazz, and much more, you can start creating great sounding drums straight-away.

Soul Drums offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.

Soul Drums is available immediately at an introductory price of $99 / 99€ through May 1st, 2022 (regularly $149 / 149€).

I just bought Soul Drums, was this even beta tested? I keep getting a super loud buzz when changing kits, UVI, this is unprofessional, and needs an update quick, I can't believe they passed this out, and this is with M.2 drives.. ridiculous.
