Due to the limited production of the original machines very few are left today, with even fewer in working condition. Our UVI Japan office was able to secure a pristine model, making sure it was calibrated to factory specs before passing to our sound design team. Once here in Paris, we pushed it to its limits, designing tones from classic to modern and letting the unique character of this synth shine. Recordings we made using the highest-quality processors and converters available, resulting in a fantastically rich and vivid library to serve as the basis for UVX80. Once loaded into the UVI Engine our sound designers further polished these patches creating the hybrid instrument we proudly present to you today. Now you can explore the distinct and powerful analog sound of this vintage ‘80s synth with all the conveniences and flexibility of a modern studio instrument.
UVX80 delivers a versatile and electrifying ‘80s analog sound, exploring the fascinating and profound beginnings of a Japanese powerhouse brand.

“UVX80 has its own 80s feel that makes it quite charming. It has more than enough rich leads, captivating pads and powerful bass lines.”
“I like this for its different flavour. It’s so quick and easy to change the colour of this synth! Great value.”
“The interface looks great and is easy to navigate. There's a lot of great presets to play with and enough options to keep you creating some new ones for a foreseeable time. Great job.”
