IK Multimedia has released a software editor for the UNO Synth Pro and UNO Synth Pro Desktop. That’ll make it much easier to create your own sounds and keep track of your patches on the pair of analog synthesizers. The UNO Synth Pro editor is available as a free download for macOS and Windows.
IK Multimedia UNO Synth Pro Editor
Even with analog synths, using a software editor makes sense in many ways. Not only do you get a clear interface that puts all of the synth’s parameters at your fingertips, which is especially useful with matrix-driven user interfaces like on the UNO Synth Pro. An editor also makes it easier to automate parameters in your DAW and save the settings with your projects.
IK Multimedia already offered editors for the UNO Drum and UNO Synth, so it was only a matter of time until the new UNO Synth Pro would also get its custom software. After announcing it about a month ago, the UNO Synth Pro Editor finally became available today.
The interface not only lets you load and save presets, but also provides access to global settings like MIDI, pitch bend range and master tuning. The best part, however, is that you can easily edit all of the synthesis parameters without having to switch back and forth between the oscillators, filters, envelopes and LFOs of the 3-voice paraphonic synth. The software runs standalone or as a plug-in in your DAW, so you can automate parameters and save settings with your DAW projects.
The Engines view gives you access to the oscillators, filters, mixer, envelopes, LFOs and voice settings. Matrix provides an overview of the modulation matrix – expect the editor to come in especially handy here. In Effects view, you can adjust the synth’s effects such as delay, reverb, modulation and drive.
The editor also features a virtual keyboard, which is useful for creating arpeggios and scales.
It’s a good-looking software editor that’ll be a huge workflow improvement for all owners of the UNO Synth Pro.
The IK Multimedia UNO Synth Pro Editor runs on macOS 10.10 or higher and Windows 8 or higher (64 bits). Unlike the UNO Synth Editor, the editor for the UNO Synth Pro isn’t available for iOS, which is a bit of a bummer. The plug-in version comes in VST2, VST3, AU and AAX formats. The editor requires Firmware version 2.0 to be installed on the UNO Synth Pro.
The IK Multimedia UNO Synth Pro and UNO Synth Pro Desktop analog synthesizers are available from Thomann.de*.
