Instruments

UVI FM Suite | GUIS

UVI FM Suite | FMX1-XL GUI
Based on the fabled DX1 (1983), the top-of-the-line sibling to the popular DX7, FMX-1 XL offers a new and improved take on our FMX-1 with the addition of new sampled content and an expanded selection of presets - delivering the mighty sounds of one of the most prestigious and rare FM synthesizers ever produced. Outfitted with dual 6-operator FM engines each capable of 16 voices of polyphony, less than 150 DX1s were produced making it exceedingly rare. Our sound designers extracted some other-worldly sounds from this massive instrument, sampling up to 10 velocity layers per-patch in some cases to preserve the subtle modulations and authentic hardware feeling.

UVI FM Suite | FMX2-XL GUI
A 4-operator variant of its big brother based on 3 more modest vintage FM synths; the DX21 (1985), DS8 (1987), and TQ5 (1988). FMX2-XL delivers classic vintage FM sounds in all of their '80s glory (both the good and the bad!). We utilized the novel features of each synth in our patch designs, including unique unison modes and built-in effects which contribute heavily to their iconic sound.
