A number of locations are available from the download source menu.

We generally recommend using ‘PRIMARY’, however, if your download is progressing too slowly you can try the Torrent or select the mirror closest to your location.

Torrents can be used quickly and safely with a client application such as μTorrent.

Step 4 - Install Your Soundbanks


♦ Soundbanks are compressed in RAR format, you will need a RAR utility to access them. We suggest UnrarX (Mac) or WinRAR (Win).
♦ Once decompressed, soundbanks can be placed anywhere on your computer (including external drives). Create a directory and move your soundbanks to it.
♦ The faster the drive the better your performance will be. We recommend 7,200 rpm HDs or SSDs when available.

1- Decompress your soundbanks with a RAR utility

The decompressed file will have a ‘.ufs’ file extension

uvi-unrarx-winrar

2- Create a folder for your soundbank(s).
We recommend choosing a location that can be easily found.

For example, Macintosh HD > UVI or C:/Documents/UVI
