In the nineties, there were several very interesting different sounding digital Synthesizers. Brands like Ensoniq, Kawai or Roland dominated the market of Synthesizers in this time period. For archiving these instruments with this special sound, the sample library and plugin developer UVI released today a new product based on three specific Synthesizers from the 90s. The new library includes high-quality sampled sounds from the the Ensoniq Fizmo, Roland JD800, JD990 and Kawai K5000S.

Paris, April 27th, 2017 – UVI releases Digital Synsations Vol. 2, a 3-instrument suite picking up where the rst library left off, delivering over 500 new patches designed on vintage digital synthesizers from the ‘90s. DS Vol. 2 provides a deep exploration and expose of the unique character of 3 choice instruments including; DZmo, a very rare “transwave” synth, DK5S, a special synth that layers additive synthesis with PCM sounds, and DS-890, the best of two Japanese sister-synths known for their extraordinarily warm analog-like sounds and incredible versatility. The library provides a comprehensive selection of completely new sounds designed to bring the edgy vintage timbres of ‘90s-era digital synths to new users and new musical styles.

Digital Synsations Vol. 2 leverages the unusual sonic signatures of each synth, delivering a completely authentic hardware sound with the convenience and deep editability of a modern instrument. The keyboards chosen for DS Vol. 2 each offer singular characteristics that stand out among their peers, from unique or uncommon synthesis techniques to simply having outstanding overall architecture. Sound designers focused on these qualities to create a varied and distinct selection of patches that re ect the best these machines have to offer.

Digital Synsations Vol. 2 delivers and extensive collection of sounds with over 20,000 samples recorded for the library resulting in 162 patches for DZmo, 187 for DK5S and 179 for the DS-890, categorized by keyboard and type. DS Vol. 2 includes all the fundamental patch styles such as bass, bells, brass, keys, leads, pads, plucks and strings – plus a wide variety of specialty sounds including sequences, sweeps, vocals and more. Patches can be quickly browsed and easily layered, allowing hybrid multi-machine instruments, and with full control over amp envelopes, lters, modulation and effects, patches can be easily augmented and customized to create a near-limitless palette of new sounds. Digital Synsations Vol. 2 offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
