Your Own Hybrid Orchestra
UVI Augmented Orchestra pushes deep into the creative world of hybrid instrument design, carving out new realms of twisted symphonic technique and trodding with breathtaking soundscapes. With an exclusive library of new material, showcasing over 400 expertly played and immaculately designed instrument layers and hundreds of professionally hand-crafted presets to explore, Augmented Orchestra is an expansive sonic playground ready to inspire with unique and imaginative sounds.

Multi-Part Architecture
UVI Augmented Orchestra allows you to create incredible sonic motifs with a versatile multi-part architecture, letting you weave between 4 deeply customizable instrument layers. Utilize rich modulation, innovative arpeggiators, and powerful effects to create dynamic and moving sequences, pads, chords, melodies and more. From rich, morphing soundbeds to classic orchestral duties and everywhere in between, Augmented Orchestra is a powerful, inspirational and easy to master library for musicians of any background.

Deep Chromatic Multi-Sampling of a World-Class Orchestra
The story of UVI Augmented Orchestra begins in the recording hall accompanied by over 100 musicians, with a deep chromatic multi-sampling of a complete symphony orchestra. We recorded with both conventional and unconventional approaches, adding a number of orchestrated chords and FX to the library.

Strings, Brass, and Woodwinds are arranged creatively with low and high sections to provide a full playable range across the keyboard, as well, all instruments were recorded with both close mono and wide decca tree stereo allowing morphing between close and far positions.
Over 70 hours of recordings made across dozens of sessions went into creating the acoustic instruments for Augmented Orchestra, ending with 10 sections arranged as follows:

  • Strings Low
    Arranged with 10x Cellos and 6x Double Bass
  • Strings High
    Arranged with 14x Violins 1, 12x Violins 2, and 10x Violas

    Arranged with 5x Trombones, 3x Bass Trombones, and 2x Tubas
  • Brass High
    Arranged with 4x Trumpets, and 8x French Horns
  • Brass Ensemble

  • Winds Low
    Arranged with 3x Contrabassoons, 2x Bassoons, and 3x Bass Clarinets
  • Winds High
    Arranged with 3x Oboes, 3x Clarinets, 2x Flutes, and 1 Piccolo
  • Winds Ensemble

    Both arranged with 44x Strings, 12x Brass, and 8x Winds

    Sound, Incredibly Designed

    The sounds of these virtuoso symphonic instrumentalists are then melded with those of cutting-edge synthesis, acoustic recordings with modern and classical sound design techniques, reamping, layering, and processing with tape. Organized in 8 categories, the additional sources provide an incredible creative toolbox:

  • Tape Orchestra
    Resampled orchestral instrument stacks through half-speed tape machine
  • Modeled
    Orchestral instruments and ensembles created on physical modeling hardware synthesizers
  • String Machines
    Two early string synthesizers (ARP Solina & Freeman Symphonizer) sampled through a multi-amp setup with vintage analog chorus and effect pedals
  • Synth Stacks
    Up to 8 vintage digital synthesizers stacked together and mixed through SSL hardware
  • Processed
    Creative and deeply offline-processed orchestral and synth sounds
  • Synth Textures
    An eclectic collection of sounds from vintage analog and modern synthesizers
  • FM Exploration
    Evolving and detailed timbres and atmospheres from an extraordinarily rare FM synth
  • Waveforms
    An eclectic collection of sounds from vintage analog and modern synthesizers

    A Sound for any Mood

    Many thousands of samples later, with an incredible library of sounds now in-engine, the possibilities of UVI Augmented Orchestra begin to unfold in the hands of our sound designers. Uniquely inspired, they probed the vast potential combinations to create a formidable library of stunning presets, displaying extensive range in style, form, and depth.

    The results are presented in categories including: Orchestra, Augmented Layers, Natural, Action, Small Sections, Hybrid, Electronic, Pulses, Ambient, and Heavy. In all, over 500 professionally crafted presets are ready to be explored, deconstructed, and maligned for your creative pleasure, with every aspect of their design exposed and fully editable. From sparse and sophisticated to full-range modulated madness, Augmented Orchestra's range is versatile and unapologetically unique.

    An Expansive Sonic Playground

    The sounds we've prepared are only the beginning. A deep and powerful instrument that's both easy to learn and use awaits your creative touch. Dig into an intuitive UI, and explore an extraordinarily diverse range of sounds.

    Using the well-understood conventions of subtractive synthesis each part provides expressive control over amplitude, dynamic multi-mode filters, voicing, numerous effects, a creative arpeggiator, and extensive modulation possibilities with an all-new multi-source/target matrix driven in part by 2 fully customizable LFOs and Step Lanes per part.

    If that weren't enough the layers of each part can be crossfaded both manually or with modulation, allowing for a dynamic, expressive, and ever-changing landscape of sound to be created with the flick of a fader. Move seamlessly through timbres, patterns, and effect configurations to create dazzling sounds that give voice to narrative cues, or help chart your musical journey. All of this is waiting to be layered, tweaked, sequenced, and processed with the included collection of high-quality effects.

    Creative Powerhouse

    The latest in our Augmented series, UVI Augmented Orchestra is an inspiring and massively capable instrument, a true powerhouse for those looking for new acoustic, hybrid, and even electronic sounds, and a deep, dynamic, environment for exploration.
