UVI releases World Suite, a comprehensive collection that gives access to thousands of years of ethnic tradition and musical heritage by way of over 320 instruments and 8,000+ loops and phrases from every corner of our planet.
Browsable by both instrument category and geographic region, World Suite represents an ambitious multi-year development comprised of over 50,000 samples. World Suite was designed to provide the ultimate ethnic instrument resource, delivering incredible scale and instrument diversity with the professional sound quality and reliability that UVI has become known for.
Categorised into 12 regions, instruments in World Suite were carefully recorded to preserve and convey their natural physical qualities and traditional playing styles using the highest-quality recording equipment and processing available. Instruments in World Suite are provided with custom controls based on type and built-in keyswitches to allow for complex articulation of voicing and rich and dynamic performance techniques. In addition to performance controls, World Suite instruments include a standard selection of sound shaping tools including velocity envelope, ADSR amplitude envelope, a 3-band EQ with sweepable mid frequency, and a high-quality IR reverb allowing you to easily and precisely sculpt and place them in your mix.
World Suite’s 8,000+ loops and phrases can be drag-and-dropped into your DAW of choice or commanded by way of special ‘Traveler’ instruments. Provided by region, World Suite Travelers allow for 6 discrete tracks to be populated with your choice of loops and phrases. Each track comes with a suite of customization options including gain, pan, solo, mute, low-pass and high-pass filters, pitch shifting and Sparkverb. Explore preset configurations, design and perform your own or find inspiration with the built-in randomizer for completely new arrangements at the touch of a button. In additional to the regional Travelers two special Vocal Travelers are included, allowing you to easily layer vocal loops and phrases to create rich emotive textures and ambiences.
World Suite offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
World Suite is available immediately for $299/€299 from authorised dealers and the UVI online shop. Upgrade pricing of $199/€199 is available for owners of World Traditions or Spirit of Gongs through January 2nd, 2017.
