Quick overview

 

 

At UVI we’ve been producing sound for over 20 years and designing our own software for over 12.

We’ve found that virtual instruments with a foundation in sampling have a more defined character and distinct sound quality than those based on digital modeling. The trouble with sample-based instruments is that they’re typically lacking in expression and flexibility; one sample, one sound.

 

 

UVI hybrid instruments are more flexible than a conventional ROMpler and more authentic than a simulation, giving you the best of both worlds. Vintage Legends integrates over 30,000 samples from classic synths into the acclaimed UVI Engine, giving you the distinct character of hardware with the added control, convenience and power of a modern digital instrument.

Taking these classic tones into new sonic territory, the UVI Engine delivers massive unison spreads, abundant polyphony, thick-modeled filters, drive, reverbs, modulation, FX and much, much more. These instruments will never need to be serviced or go out of tune, and they’re far easier to lug around than hardware.

UVI CS-M

Vintage Japanese Power

 

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Between 1979 and 1984 Yamaha designed and built some of the most unique and distinct sounding analog synthesizers in the world – the most famous of which being the well-regarded CS-80. At UVI we actually prefer the sound of the lesser-known siblings of the family, we’re speaking of 3 marvelous models : the CS-70M, CS-40M, and CS-20M.

UVI CS-M features a dual-layer architecture and instant preset/layer switching making it an extraordinarily responsive instrument capable of a wide range of sounds. Layers include all possible base waveforms and noises as well as expertly programmed presets, all made on the original machines.

We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the authentic sound and natural texture of these machines was preserved and translated clearly in CS-M. We sampled everything, down to the unique Unison and Ensemble sounds from the massive CS-70M.

 
 


 
 
 

The wonderful vintage aesthetic of this synthesizer can be taken even further with help from the UVI Engine.

CS-M comes packed with a wealth of features to help you enrich and customize your sounds including double arpeggios, a step sequencer, LFOs and precision modeled FX – allowing you to freely tread in territory the old hardware couldn’t dream of.

 
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 

From thick and gritty textures to pulsing warm tones and everywhere in-between, UVI CS-M is a grand ode to one of our most beloved inspirations.

UVI SYNTHOX

The Real Italian Stallion

 

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Considered by some to be the best analog synthesizer ever designed, the Synthex comes to us from the Italian manufacturer Elka. The Synthex was made famous by Jean Michel Jarre on his ‘Rendez vous’ EP which features a ripping Lazer Harp sound. Due to the oscillator design and lush filters this synth packs a distinctly thick and raw sound. The Synthex has become increasingly rare with time and finding working units can be a tedious and expensive task; UVI Synthox brings you the best of this instrument in the form of a convenient and extraordinary sounding soft synth.

UVI KROMA

Premier Analog Synth

 

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

The Rhodes Chroma is a unique specimen, easily identified by its vibrant looks and sound. One of the first microprocessor-based analog synths, Chroma was the last keyboard designed by ARP, a pioneering synthesizer house of the 70′s, before Rhodes later began selling it in early eighties. The sound of Chroma is very, very good – rich and immediate.

UVI Kroma comes loaded with dozens of presets programmed on a fully restored unit including Apregio, Bass, Bells, Brass, FX, Leads, Pads, Strings, Sweeps. Even the basic waveforms of the unit were sampled to allow design of new patches. Take complete control of this veritable classic with a built in arpegiator, step sequencer, LFOs and precision modeled FX.

 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 

From elegant and brassy to analog atmosphere and everywhere in-between, UVI Kroma brings back a forgotten classic with an arsenal of sound sculpting tools exclusive to the UVI Engine.

UVI FMX1

The Gem of FM

 

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

Back in 1985 Japanese super-synth designer Yamaha set out to fashion their biggest and baddest FM synth ever. And they succeeded. The DX1 was constructed in an extremely limited run of 100 units, utilizing only top-of-the-line components. The resulting sound these machines made was unlike anything else, almost more organic than digital.

Our sound designers spent a great deal of time exploring all the sonic fields this machine could traverse, and have packed it with presets ranging from utility to the most creative textures and ambiences. Even more, the base waveforms of the unit were carefully captured allowing you to create your own patches from scratch.

 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 

In addition to an exhaustive sample set, UVI FMX1 includes arpeggios, a step sequencer, LFOs and precision modeled FX to help sculpt your sounds to fit the mix perfectly; we even included a true FM synthesis module to further FMize your presets! – all of this packed with a wealth of features exclusive to the UVI Engine.

Pure FM sounds, slamming bass tones and rich atmospheres await – UVI FMX1 puts the legacy of a fantastic Eighties super-synth squarely within reach.

UVI U1250

Dawn of the ROM Age

 

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

The first keyboard to deliver sampled waveforms via oscillator, the K250 was a joint effort carried out with legendary musician Stevie Wonder, the founder of ARP – Alan Pearlman, and prolific synthesizer artisan Bob Moog among others. Able to produce brilliant acoustic sounds without the use of disk drives, the K250 was the world’s first ROMpler and boasted an impressive 24 voices of polyphony. A beastly 88 weighted-keyboard instrument, the K250 was designed with performance in mind and later joined by the K1000 – a 76-key version which came with additional sounds but was relatively difficult to program due to restrictive front-panel controls.

In making the U1250 we decided to tackle both the K250 and the K1000, programming a wide range of sounds including Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Bells, Mallets, Drums, Percussion, Guitar, Bass, Pads, Wind, Brass and other Orchestral instruments, many of the patches evoking classic Eighties nostalgia. These sounds were then tediously multi-sampled to produce the rich library of the U1250.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

These classic sounds from the late 80′s and early 90′s are given new life and playability with the UVI Engine. We’ve included a number of controls that offer easy customization and enhanced sculpting not available in hardware.

These features combined offer a deep and unparalleled experience.

UVI ENERGY

Additive Fury

 

 

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

 

The DK Synergy is easily one of the most odd vintage synthesizers. Sporting 32 oscillators of sine or triangle wave, the Synergy was primarily known for additive synthesis but is capable of some FM synthesis as well. Synergy was one of the first synthesizers with a memory cartridge, allowing some expansion to the 24 internal patches but required an external device to write them.

The DK Synergy was and is a nightmare to program – but the sounds are fantastic, used by electronic virtuosos like Wendy Carlos. So we were determined to create a full library of patches from this keyboard and bring you a dose of this classic oddball. In addition to the included patches you can design your own from basic waveforms offered by the hardware.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

The UVI Engine allows for further customization of Energy – giving you a built-in arpegiator, step sequencer, LFO and precision modeled FX.

UVI Energy has a one-of-a-kind sound and is an exclusive instrument only available in the Vintage Legends collection.

    This is fabulous concept I must admit!

    What I’m wondering is, did you actually replicate *Oscilators* and Filters behavior as well on those beasts?

    For example, if I take a pure Saw and turn the Cutoff on UVI SYNTHOX – will filters behave as on *Real*thing?

    Pleas let me know. I already have BPM and it have great filters so I’m wondering how it iwill work in VLegends.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Elisabeth | UVI says:

      You are totally right !!
      But note that Vintage Legends won’t work in BPM.
      You need to run it under UVI WorkStation v2.0.8 or MachFive3 v3.1.3.

  2. Marek says:

    OK, possible to download some demo before try? I want to purchase all 6 synthesizers, so it would be good if I could demo them before purchase.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Steve says:

    Hi I purchased this 2 weeks ago from a reseller – JRR Shop and have not received this product still. They say they are waiting for you at UVI to provide codes.
    I sent an email to you asking for more info via the web form and have received no response. If there is no action or information I will shortly be requesting a refund.

    • Elisabeth | UVI says:

      Hello,

      We are sorry for the inconvenience occurred. JRR Shop is not our direct reseller in the US but Big Fish Audio. We’ve transferred your message to our Support who will get back to you shortly – we’ll see what we can do for you and keep you posted. Thank you.

      • Elisabeth,

        You should not say that JRR Shop is not your reseller. We were one of your only resellers in the US for a long time and the only difference now is that we purchase from Big Fish Audio instead of directly from you as we used to do.

        I am and have always been very proud of being a UVI dealer and I hope that you are proud to have us as your dealer! :)

        To everyone who has ordered Vintage Legends from JRR Shop, please contact us directly and we will provide you with an extra discount to help make up for the delay.

  4. David says:

    Same problem here, ordered since more of two weeks, and no codes or download link received…

  5. David says:

    Is there a link somewhere for downloading the large sound files ? Then, when we will receive licenses, we could use it immediately…

    Thanks

    • Elisabeth | UVI says:

      Hi David,

      We are sorry to hear about this – since JRRShop is not our direct reseller, it is not obvious to get in contact with them . However we did contact our US reseller, Big Fish Audio, for them to speed up things. Please write to our support at support@uvi.net. We’ll see what we can do for you. Thank you.

  6. David says:

    Hi again,

    And as Steve said, if there no action or information, I will cancel my order and never order UVI products again (waiting and paid since 24th december!!!). I had problems in the past with a Dartklight order… I think it’s not difficult to send us a code and download links… Disappointed

    • Elisabeth | UVI says:

      Hi David,

      We are really sorry – we do not have control over orders coming from another company – we hope for your understanding in the matter. Can you please write to our support so that we can open a customer file and see what we can do to speed up the process for you. Thanks in advance.

  7. David says:

    Done !

  8. Edward says:

    Same problem here with JRR. They say they are working on it but nothing new.
    It seems that Big Fish Audio didn’t list Vintage Legends on the website, that maybe part of the problem…
    Can we began to download those big files somewhere while waiting for our licences?
    Thanks

  9. David says:

    Hi,

    Any news about Big Fish Audio ? Still no license… Did you contact them ?

    :-(

  10. David says:

    Here’s what JRR tells me : I apologize for the mistaken communication. We got indication from Big Fish that the Vintage Legends was released on their site on January 8th, which is when I contacted you. However, they spoke out of turn. They only received a small number of licenses from UVI. Not enough to cover all orders. Correspondence from Big Fish still seems to be the same. They are working diligently with UVI to get the licenses fully released as soon as possible. We can cancel and refund your order at any time you choose. We did prematurely release this item and apologize for the confusion. Please let me know how you wish to proceed. Thank you.

    Hopefully it’s just codes, not hardware synths… INCREDIBLE… and…….. still no license

  11. To everyone who has ordered Vintage Legends from JRR Shop, please contact us directly and we will provide you with an extra discount to help make up for the delay. We are doing everything we can to get your licenses to you as soon as possible.

  12. jon says:

    Looks like this can be good, however without a demo version , there is no way i would ever consider even purchasing your product. Its a ridiculous policy that you cannot try this out to see about workflow and actual quality and usability. There are way too many options out there in the synth world to even consider dropping 300$ for something I cant even try. Really should consider updating your demo policy. Good luck with that.

  13. A . says:

    Great sound!

    I downloaded demo, and I can purchase full version, but there’s big problem – I can’t load previously saved sessions with these instruments. Logic 9.1.8, UVI Workstation 2.0.9, MAC OS 10.6.8, UVI crashes Logic after loading Vintage Legends samples. “Factory Demo” presets work fine.
