UVI has introduced UVX670, a new software synth that’s inspired by two vintage analog synths, the Akai VX600 and AX73.
Both the VX600 and AX73 are six-voice analog polysynths, the VX600 being a ‘pad monster’ with dual VCOs per-voice and the AX73 being remarkable for leads and basses with a 6 VCO architecture, usable in either poly, stacked or unison modes. Both synths feature versatile modulation systems, capable of a wide range of sounds.
Here’s what UVI has to say about their new virtual instrument:
UVX670 starts with a VX600 and AX73, both serviced and restored to factory condition. Our sound designers fully-explored these synths, creating a wide selection of sounds that represent a gamut of their strengths and peculiarities including bass, bells, brass, FX. keys, leads, organs, pads, plucks, polysynths, strings and voices.
Sampling was made per-key for every patch, and on the AX73 we doubled them, including both wet and dry versions with the built-in chorus effect. For recording we utilized Prism converters, with all samples carefully edited and thoroughly tested to ensure the highest possible quality and reliable performance.
Being essentially two vintage analog synthesizers stacked, UVX670 is capable of some radical sounds. Each synth has its own voice selection, volume, pan, filters, amplitude and filter envelopes, pitch, portamento, stereo modes, modulation targets, and arpeggiators, allowing you to create anything from rich, layered unisons to complex, modulating interplays, and being sample-based means you get the authentic hardware sound without having to worry about running out of voices.
Finally, the two synth signals are summed through a high-quality effect chain employing 3-band EQ, drive, Thorus, multi-mode ensemble, Phasor, delay and Sparkverb, allowing you to both polish or completely transform your sounds easily, without the need for other plugins.
Pricing and Availability:
UVX670 Synthesizer is available now with an intro price of $49 / 49€ through July 15th, 2019 (Regular price: $79 / 79€).

Sounds like it has been designed for synthwave, which is not a bad thing.
synthwave didn’t exist in 1986
Well done captain obvious. Neither did this soft synth exist in 1986 either, it been created to fill a need for today. Could that possibly be for synthwave, you know like the music in it’s own demo video?
It sounds from the description as though this is a sample-based instrument, rather than a virtual recreation of the circtuitry. Not that it’s a bad thing, necessarily. Sounds good, anyway
nice drums and sidechain, now make a demo of the synth that you’re trying to sell
Simply listen to audio demos and watch overview demos 😉
Unpopular opinion: the vx600 is a dull sounding synth with poor control options and there’s a reason it never caught on. It goes for crazy prices now simply because it’s “vintage”
