UVI raises its Emulation instrument range to the next 80s level with the Emulation II+ bundle with more instruments, and sounds from the iconic E-mu samplers.
Emulation II + pulls in the sounds of the iconic 80s Emulator I, II and III samplers plus the Drumlator and SP12 for a massive Babycham and Snakebite party.
With the Emulation series, UVI has been offering virtual instruments with the cheesy sounds of the legendary E-mu emulator series for several years.

With the Emulation II +, UVI has today released a massive update for these instruments. Now in a bundle, it ships with over 1300 presets, 800+ layers, 2400+ drum sounds, and more. It features officially licensed sounds plus tons of new ones, along with the new lo-fi drum machine Drumulation+. A bundle made for fans of vintage samplers and E-mu hardware.
Starting with Drumulation+, a lo-fi drum machine that delivers vintage drum and percussive sounds directly from the Emulation I, II, and III. Plus, a selection of sounds from the iconic E-mu SP-12 sampler.
In total, it offers over 2400 hardware samples all built into a unique feature-rich virtual instrument with 8 fully-editable parts with effects, sequencer, stereo or multi outputs. Thanks MIDI drag-n-drop, you can load in your own MIDI patterns.
