Rob Puricelli has been working with the new UVI Emulation II Sample Library, which recreates the 80s sounds of the Emulator II and Drumulator.
So, is this one of the best Emulator emulations out there? I’d have to say yes.
I’m an Emulator fan. I’m an 80?s fan. I’m also a big lover of simple yet powerful interfaces that support the creative process, not hinder it. If you plonk me in front of an over elaborate, beautifully scripted interface, I’ll marvel at it’s beauty but will be stumped by the complexity.
I’m here to make music with sounds. I want power and control but I don’t want to read a 6 inch think manual or require a degree to operate it. I want clear, attractive controls, simple intuitive navigation and above all else, superb sonics and patches that inspire.

UVI SoundSource has released Emulation II, a new sound library that brings back the electronic sounds the 80s.
Hundreds of sounds and instruments were recorded from the original instruments: drums, bass, bells, choir-voices, fretted instruments, FXs, keyboards, mallets, percussion, synths, strings, orchestral hits and more.
Also included: Drumulation, an 80s-style beatbox, loaded with 500+ drums and percussion sounds.
Emulation II can work:
- as a stand-alone instrument, compatible with Mac & PC
- as a VST, AudioUnit, RTAS and MAS plug-in. iLok required.
Emulation II is available now for US $199.95.
Univers Sons has introduced UVI Workstation – a free, advanced, universal software instrument workstation, and UVISoundsource.com – a new sound download website dedicated to the UVI community.
In a nutshell, they’re giving away their software workstation for free and hoping that you’ll like it enough to buy Soundpack downloads.
UVI Workstation is available now, in beta, so you can try it before its official release.
Note: UVI Workstation requires installing Interlok extensions, system extensions for copy protection, which may be a show-stopper for many users. Continue reading
