UVI releases "The Beast" (UVI Instrument)

UVI




UVI has released The Beast, a new UVI instrument, inspired by THE machine of luxury born in 1975 for the musical elite. Using electronics developed for NASA, this revolutionary instrument was unprecedented for its time. Its emergence into the professional studio inspired many of the leading avant-garde artists and sonic visionaries to embrace its potential, including Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Michael Jackson, Sting, Kraftwerk, Stevie Wonder, and Depeche Mode, among others.

"A diverse suite with a rich and expansive sonic range, The Beast embodies the timeless sound of vintage, luxury electronics", said Alain J Etchart, UVI Creative Manager.

The Beast is comprised of three separate digital instruments:

  1. Beast FMII: An FM and additive synthesis monster: As a result of a combination of deep multi-sampling and integrated true FM synthesis module, this instrument offers a unique approach to reproducing these vintage sounds, allowing for subtle to extreme variation.
  2. Beast Terminal: With careful attention to historical details, the presets and sonic character of Beast Terminal traverse a wide territory. Ranging from acoustic to electric, they encompass the full sonic spectrum: from lush strings to strikingly bright brass timbres and beyond.
  3. Beast Box: Combining the best FM-synthesized percussion sounds with recordings of the deepest drum hits and percussion samples, Beast Box is a massive drum machine with an extensive library of over 1200 sounds.

The Beast is compatible with all Windows and Mac OS X DAWs via the free UVI Workstation (2.0.6+). It also loads in the full-featured MOTU MachFive 3 sampler.

Price: $199.
