World Suite's scope is truly massive, it’s one our largest libraries yet including well over 65,000 samples and representing years of planning, recording, editing, coding and design to realize.

Journey to Africa and feel the primal drive of tribal drums and the hypnotizing resonances of the mbira, to Asia and Indonesia for the delicate strings of the koto, mystical shakuhachi flutes and the cerebral gamelan, or to Australia for the didgeridoo and ancient percussive instruments of the aborigine… Wherever you want to go World Suite can be your musical guide with the largest and most complete collection of traditional instruments ever in software form.

In Depth

UVI World Suite | Instruments

Instruments

World Suite is divided into 12 groups by geography and ethnography including Africa, Asia, Australia, Celtic, Eastern Europe, India, Indonesia, Middle East, Occidental, South America, Spanish Gypsy and West Indies. Browse instruments by region or type, so regardless of whether you need sounds from a certain geographical location or a specific instrument category you can find what you need quickly and efficiently.
Each instrument in World Suite was carefully recorded to preserve and convey both their natural physical qualities and traditional playing styles with the highest quality equipment available. The result are instruments that have both a genuine voicing and a transparent sound quality throughout the entire suite. Custom controls are available based on instrument type, allowing you to adjust things like fret noise on various stringed instruments, transient level and timbre on pitched percussions, legato, portamento, velocity curve, 3-band EQ, as well as a superb IR reverb (available on every instrument), all provided in intuitive and inspiring user interfaces. Easily fine-tune and place your instrument in the mix and utilize the built-in key-switches to add dynamics and variety to your performances. Go even deeper with Falcon, and play them with micro-tunings. You can check out the user manual for more detailed information.

Loops and Phrases

In addition to the deeply-sampled instruments, World Suite includes a massive selection of authentically performed loops and phrases, browsable by region or instrument type, ready to be arranged, chopped or reshaped into new forms of your own design. Over 10,000 loops are included, making World Suite a fantastic resource for songwriters, composers, sound designers and beat makers alike. Looking to add some authentic instrumentation to your production? Extra flavors to your score? Or even build entire songs with regionally-correct performances? Look no further.
UVI World Suite | Loops

Travelers

Loops and phrases can be individually browsed and loaded into your DAW or played through the unique multi-track Traveler instruments. World Suite’s Traveler allows you to easily mix, transpose and perform up to 6 loops simultaneously, all perfectly tempo-synced to your DAW. World Suite includes 12 Traveler instruments (African, Brazilian, Cuban, Georgian, Indian, Latin Percussion, Middle Eastern 1 and 2, South American, Vocal Ambience Traveler, Vocal Traveler and West Indies) to provide you with convenient instrument groupings for a fast and intuitive experience. Adjust gain, independent high and lowpass filters, pitch, pan and reverb levels all per track while you quickly browse the thousands of included loops. Just looking for some inspiration? Roll the dice with the built-in randomizer to quickly explore countless sonic landscapes.
Looking for ethnic choirs or vocal phrases? Check out the Vocal Traveler and Vocal Ambience Traveler. Vocal Travelers include a huge variety of samples from across the globe allowing you to paint complete regional tapestries or create rich emotive textures with the human voice. Browse and select the sounds you like then freely adjust gain, pan, reverb, pitch, time stretching and envelope settings to taste for each track.
