⬇ Urban Suite User Guide

Urban Suite delivers 5 new instruments and a massive sample library tailored for contemporary music producers, perfect for hip hop, R&B, trap, glitch, beat, experimental and more. Both a comprehensive retrospective of the classics and a collection of new and innovative tools, Urban Suite embodies the creative spirit and boundary-pushing heritage of beat music production.

In an effort to give you the absolute best sound quality possible, every sample used in Urban Suite (both in-instrument samples and all of the construction kits) were professionally mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound in NYC. A modern legend of urban music, Chris has worked with Rihanna, JayZ, 50 Cent, Wu-Tang Clan, Snoop Dog, Nas, Naughty by Nature & Robin Thicke to name a few. His amazing ears and genre expertise have helped to make every aspect of Urban Suite sound simply fantastic out of the box.

The Ultimate Urban Drum Machine

Deep sound design capabilities and a comprehensive sample library allow you to craft your own drum kits to perfection with kicks, snares, claps and hi-hats. Hundreds of sounds were specially designed for BeatShaper, ready to be mixed and mangled into your own creations with intuitive controls, analog-modeled filters, envelopes and effects. From crisp hits to massive sub-bass booms no other drum machine delivers this balance of quality, control and ease-of-use. Build your kits from scratch or use one of the 150 included. BeatShaper is a must-have for the discerning beatsmith.

A Beat Machine Legend, Reborn

Likely the most iconic and sought after drum machine in the world, the big daddy of the X0X series is also one of the most overdone when it comes to sample libraries. With a monotony of same'ish kits of average quality available we wanted to do her right and set the bar. Prime8 starts with a deep, multi-sampling process using Class-A gear and an extremely high resolution capture. After meticulous editing the entire library was mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound, a modern legend of urban music, giving Prime8 a distinct and immediate punch. We dressed the GUI in classic garbs and outfitted each instrument with an arsenal of effects including reverb, delay, drive and a combo lp/hp filter giving you a huge range of sonic territory. A built-in sequencer helps you get the groove started and individual outs for each instrument let you track and mix the way you want. Prime8 breathes new life into a well-known classic with a thick and primal force that can carry even the heaviest tracks. Includes 50+ preset kits.

Unique Tweakable Sample Synth

A sample-synth from the street, URBAN X takes 3 of our fully-featured synth voices including discrete amp, multimode filter, pitch, stereo and multi-effect units and loads them with a massive set of sounds ideal for all modern music styles including hip-hop, edm, pop, composition and more. The easiest way to think of URBAN X is turntable meets synthesizer, but not just one—three of them—which means you can layer and tweak sounds to create totally new sonic expressions. Use it as a simple sample player, polyphonic synth, or go extreme, layering, morphing and distorting the sounds for wild effect. URBAN X is a flexible and totally-customizable instrument designed to bring new sounds and creativity to your workflow. Includes nearly 6,000 sounds and over 150 presets.

Fully-loaded Expressive
Scratch Instrument

There's no way to accurately reproduce the experience of scratching without a turntable but we've come pretty close with Scratch Machine. Grab a keyboard or pad controller, load up one of the classic sounds like 'Fresh' or even a Speak'n'Spell and let loose! All sounds were recorded directly from decks masterfully controlled by our resident turntablist and scratch artist DJ Quartz.

Over 10,000 samples in all -single-shots, round robins and loops- giving you a huge variety of articulations and expressive options. Interactive pitch control, playback speed, 6 built-in effects, a 3-band EQ and a lp/hp filter combine to make a fun and powerful vinyl-inspired instrument with a classic vibe and authentic sound.
All phrases are now available for use in UVI Workstation or your DAW of choice, just drag n’ drop them wherever needed! Sample content for Scratch Machine was recorded at the highest quality and mastered to perfection.

The samples sound great, but you can't really work with them because Urban Suite has a few bugs in it that causes the program to crash from time to time.

Concept Of Productions/ Producer.

Urban Suite is a bit heavy on the CPU, but the quality of the sounds are well fitted for use with Urban, Hiphop and R&B music etc.
