UVI has updated the Vintage Vault synth collection to version 4 which now includes 36 UVI products, 800,000 samples and over 14,000 presets.
Vintage Vault 4
It has decades worth of synths, samplers and drum machines all meticulously sampled by UVI and crafted into characterful virtual instruments. UVI says that because they are sampling actual instruments rather than trying to model or emulate behaviour, you get the character and quirks of the actual instrument rather than pretending to be one. That’s definitely one way of looking at it.
You’ve got everything in here from vintage Moog, through Roland Jupiters and creamy Oberheims, to digital FM, wavetable, sampling and all manner of drum machines. UVI has tackled some quite unusual synths like the Microwave XT, Korg PS-3200, Ensoniq SQ-1 and Synclavier. You are not going to go wanting for synthesizer sounds and your only conundrum will be how to navigate through those 14,000 presets.
Each of the products has various devices sampled within it so there are actually 255 individual pieces of hardware in this collection covering every decade that matters. Every one has a slim and focused user interface to give you quick and easy editing over the most important parameters. These are available in the free UVI Workstation software which gives you access to the whole library in a single interface. You can also upgrade to UVI Falcon which will unlock unlimited audio and MIDI effects, sample editing, scripting and more.
This ridiculous collection of sounds would cost $3,934 if bought individually and so the $399 price tag is pretty tempting even if you’re only interested in a few of the instruments in the bundle.
The bundle is available as VST, AU and AAX for macOS and Windows and the UVI Workstation software can also run standalone. For a full list of synths head over to the UVI website.
