Description




Inspired by THE machine of luxury born in 1975 for the musical elite.

A diverse suite with a rich and expansive sonic range, UVI The Beast embodies the timeless sound of vintage, luxury electronics. Recapture the past, and let The Beast inspire the sounds of your future.

Rewind to 1975...

A machine of luxury is birthed for the musical elite. Using electronics developed for NASA, this revolutionary instrument was unprecedented for its time. Starting off its life as a gorgeous FM synth, it evolved into a comprehensive workstation through subsequent expansions. Its emergence into the professional studio inspired many of the leading avant-garde artists and sonic visionaries to embrace its potential, including Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Michael Jackson, Sting, Kraftwerk, Stevie Wonder, and Depeche Mode, among others.

...Fast forward to today

Once again inspired by the sounds of yesteryear, we at UVI have set out to construct our own 'beast'. The result is a comprehensive software suite comprised of 3 complementary digital instruments -- each fully equipped with a vast array of both cutting edge original sounds and classic presets. We've employed our trusted combination of advanced programming and meticulous sampling, using the best analog and digital gear, to bring the beloved vintage character of this workstation to a new generation of musicians and sound explorers. The result is an entirely new, comprehensive and intuitive luxury instrument which we are proud to present to you - The Beast.

Also included is the latest UVI technology, SparkVerb™, a highly advanced synthetic reverb that focuses on sound quality and musicality. From stratospheric choruses, to lush ambiances and to resonant unisons, SparkVerb™ gives you a huge palette and direct control over the patches. Add lush atmosphere to any of your configurations instantly!

THE BEAST FMII

THE BEAST TERMINAL
