A new and inspiring look at an esteemed vintage gem
An Analog Icon
HX-20 is based on one of the most recognizable and well-loved analog monosynths around, known for its versatile semi-modular architecture, iconic front panel design, and starred musical history. Launched in the late '70s, this small two-oscillator monosynth has a lot to offer, and continues to be an inspirational studio compadre for artists around the world.
More Than The Sum
The success of this synth wasn't due to any single design consideration, instead it benefits from its combination of great features, fantastic sound, and compelling value. From the rich analog oscillators to its versatile filter section, to being both semi-modular - capable of integrating with external inputs and larger systems, to being relatively light and portable, there is simply a lot to love.
A Dynamic Duo
HX-20 is the debut release of UVI's new HX Series - leveraging our deep history in hardware sampling and physical modeling to create flexible, modern instruments with an unmistakable hardware soul, thanks in part to a novel hybrid approach combining hardware samples and wavetables, with physically-modeled filters. With its own unique hybrid sensibilities, we thought this was the perfect instrument to kick things off with.
HX-20 is similar to many of our vintage instruments in that you get a deep sampling of the hardware, but it excels in two important ways; the addition of two new layers of hardware-based wavetables, and physically-modeled filters - giving you three sample layers in total to configure, all with the analog charm you know and love. Like our chosen hardware, this unique combination of features creates a powerful and compelling sonic tool with incredible character.
Hardware Sound, Exemplified
The new sample-based wavetable oscillators in HX-20 give you entirely new dimensions with which to explore. Capturing the hardware in its full range, you have greater flexibility and nuance over the raw instrument sound than ever before. The best part, you still get our top-tier sample layers, with hand-crafted sounds lovingly designed here at UVI.
Bass, Brass, FX, Keys, Leads, Pads, Pluck, Sequences, Arps, in the end you get access to 222 presets. Assembled from a library of 13,000+ hardware samples, arranged into 182 layers, HX-20 sounds alive with analog soul, offering a wide range of useful and inspiring patches. The multi-layer architecture means you can create stacks and modulation with ease, opening the door to countless possibilities.
HX-20 provides a powerful and versatile toolset for both customizing existing patches, and creating your own. 2 hardware-based wavetable oscillators and a sample-based oscillator feed a pair of analog-modeled filters, all with ADSR envelopes and numerous, easy to configure modulation points. A powerful arpeggiator/phraser with plenty of presets allows you to create rich sequences, and a featured array of both macros and studio effects is available for everything from deep sonic manipulation to fine surgical shaping.
An iconic analog monosynth reimagined with the very best of our hardware sampling know-how and DSP magic, HX-20 delivers a new and inspiring look at an esteemed vintage gem.
HX-20 is the first of UVI's new HX Series of instruments, offering an unparalleled hardware sound thanks to a triple threat of sample-based oscillators combined with physically-modeled filters.
