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. You can check out the user manual for more detailed information.

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. Thousands of loops are included, making World Suite a fantastic resource for songwriters, composers, sound designers and beat makers alike.
