OVERVIEW

The UltraMini is the permutation of two highly sought after analog synths, all wrapped up into one extremely powerful and perceptive virtual instrument. This hybrid monster is a 3-oscillator subtractive powerhouse with the soul of two legendary analog masterpieces. The UltraMini takes on its form from an instrument that is considered to be one of the most popular synths ever. Originally crafted in 1971, this inspirational synth has changed perception and influenced synth design to date. With a striking balance of simplicity and sonic range it was one of the first real novice-friendly systems, a factor that surely contributed to its success and also made it a superb tool for teaching the basics of subtractive synthesis.

One of UVI's specialties is crafting hybrid instruments. With a hybrid instrument you get the best of both worlds. High fidelity sample-based waveforms, produced by real circuits in real machines, give the instrument a pure sound from the start. Then accurately modeled filters and effects are used on the backend to shape and control the sound, spending precious CPU cycles only where they're needed. For this approach to work you need to build an amazing library of sounds and marry them to a truly advanced DSP engine. This is exactly what UVI has done for UltraMini thanks to hundreds of man-hours of tedious multisampling and the award-winning UVI Engine.

UVI also included not one, but two aggressive analog-modeled Xpander filters in UltraMini, giving you unprecedented control and a sound so sweet you'll swear it's analog. Additional features include amplitude and filter key follow, unrestricted polyphony, mono retrigger, per-oscillator amplitude, stereo, color and drive control, a built in bit crusher, phaser, delay, limiter and our advanced algorithmic reverb - SparkVerb, built-in phraser and arpeggiator assignable per-oscillator, step and LFO modulations and a huge library of expertly crafted presets to explore.

UltraMini has been designed to give you a rich, authentic sound and an immediate experience. An elegant GUI presents controls in an easy-to-understand layout, grouped for efficient and intuitive operation eliciting the feel of a real analog synth. Whether you're an analog aficionado or just looking to add a sonic giant to your studio, UltraMini won't disappoint.

Note: Includes a free update to 1.5 version with over 200 new factory patches, significantly optimized low-CPU mode and computer-based authorization.

Two analog souls, one digital monster!

      DVD came without required ILok to use the program. Musicians friend said they could give me a good deal on the required product to use this program. Very unappealing that it doesn't come as a package deal. Unhappy at most.

        Comments about UVI UltraMini Virtual Instrument Boxed Version:

        The most amazing Voyager I've ever heard !!!
        No comparison with other ones.....
        Not an emulation it's sample-based, and we do hear the difference, woosh !!!
        Nice tricks : 2 filters, polyphonic mode (never released this way) and UVI features that make the UltraMini deep sound (SparkVerb and so on).
        3rd UVI purchase, I'm not disappointed at all.
        Keep on making these crazy VIs !!
        Cons from Roberto Japato --> high CPU usage, true but I've heard there will be a light version soon... and I have to admit that it's the cost for high quality instrument.....
