UVI World Traditions | Spanish & Gypsy

Spanish & Gypsy

Played by native musicians, these sounds effortlessly deliver the trademark sound and rhythms of the region.

UVI World Traditions | Bossa Brazil

Bossa Brazil

Drums & percussions, guitar and bass were performed together but sampled separately, for maximum flexibility. The drums and percussion are divided in sticks, brushes and mallets - loops which express well the nuances of bossa performances. For both the guitar and bass loops the key is given, as well as the chord played when applicable.

UVI World Traditions | Balkanish


This section explores traditional music from the Balkans with handy construction kits. Instruments include accordion, double bass, violin, saxophone, derbuka, strings, percussion and voices.

UVI World Traditions | Celtic


Phrases and samples of the instruments that thrive in Brittany, Ireland and Cornwall: celtic guitar, violin, concertina, acoustic guitars, Irish flute and mandolin as well as biniou (small bagpipes) and bombarde (french shawm).

UVI World Traditions | Accordions


The styles grouped here are quite varied, ranging from Canadian folklore to French "bourrée", while also approaching polka, German traditional and Beerfest material, and even Celtic melodies.

Will this run in UVI v 2.1.5?

I have the older version of the UVI plugin running under Mac OSX 10.6.8. Will this sound set open in that version of UVI plugin (2.1.5)?
