– First of all, we would want to give a huge thanks to all our artists-collaborators : Adam & Eve, Yamaki Ryuichiro, JJ Pedrazzani, Poulbo, Clem B, Guillaume Roussel and EdoEldar for their precious help and excellent work, without whom, the Emulation II image wouldn’t be the same.–



Emulation II features a set of unique instruments to reproduce that typical music from the 80s: from warm digital sounds to the most analog-ish textures.

UVI adopted a hybrid approach to create these sounds, combining deep multi-sampling and powerful modeling tools (analog filters, LFO, envelopes, etc.), inspired by the original machine and enhanced with today most modern audio processing and script technology.

Sounds were recorded and carefully selected from the authentic restored instrument, with the very best analog and digital gear, suiting UVI quality standard. This process allows preserving the original sounds’ lo-fi charm.

Besides, hundreds of sounds and instruments among the best are included: drums, bass, bells, choir-voices, fretted instruments, FXs, keyboards, mallets, percussion, synths, strings, orchestral hits and a lot more.


A simple, yet complete, user interface reproduces the looks and feeling of the most famous and essential machine from the eighties. With 250+ best sounds and primary editing tools, Emulation II enables you to create authentic spin-offs with infinite options of sounds and tones.

Discover also Drumulation: an utter beatbox with step sequencer from the eighties, loaded with 500+ drums and percussion sounds. Make your beats sound 12 bits!

Thanks to the new and free player UVI Workstation 2, Emulation II can work:
- as a stand-alone instrument, compatible with Mac & PC
- as a VST, AudioUnit, RTAS and MAS plug-in. iLok required.

Also compatible with MachFive 3: make the most of all the editing features offered.

[...] Click here to hear (and see) demos of UVI Emulation II.   And although I actually prefer the sound and feeling of the 90s rather the 80s – it was during the 80s when the coolest synthesizers and electronic instruments were made. It marked the peak of when the creative spirit reached its highest point.   I am of the firm opinion that most synthesizers produced in this era still beats the sound and feeling of even the most modern and developed plugins of today. If it wouldn’t be such a horrible hassle to leave the wonderful world of total recall, I wouldn’t mind leaving all those VSTs behind. Seriously. Go buy an old Ensoniq, Yamaha or Roland from that time and you will know what I am talking about.   When UVI released their Emulation II sound expander, I immediately got interested and quickly wrote to them asking for a review copy, hoping that this collection would be the missing bridge between the sounds of the 80s and modern technology.   Quite quickly I realized that Emulation II is one of the most well-made libraries of 80s sounds I’ve ever encountered.   There are 270 sounds in Emulation II and practically all of them are on the spot.   It’s like those old Roland sound modules full with material that sounds perfect right out of the box – but here the focus is on the 80s.
