UVI announces the PX Prototype Series, a new series of instruments for UVI Workstation and Falcon that examines unique, fringe and unreleased acoustic and electronic instruments, and introduces PX Apollo, a new sound bank based on a rare prototype of one of the first polyphonic analog synthesizers.
PX Apollo is an expansive 3-oscillator synth based on the sounds of one of the world’s first and most prolific polyphonic analog synthesizers, developed in the early 1970s by one of America’s most eminent synth manufacturers. The result of an intense restoration and recording effort, PX Apollo delivers a thorough and authentic representation of this historic instrument. Each of the 71 keys was sampled with the best hardware available and in a multitude of configurations (each with 4 round- robins) for a core library of over 4,000 samples.
The warm and charactered tonal palette of the original hardware is supported by discrete phase distortion and sub oscillators, a full compliment of envelope generators, high-quality filters, stereo controls, effects and per-oscillator modulators and arpeggiators providing a comprehensive and intuitively arranged sound design toolset. PX Apollo includes over 100 professionally designed presets which can also be used as starting points for custom user patches.
PX Apollo offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of UVI Workstation and Falcon, providing comprehensive support of all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
Pricing and Availability:
PX Apollo is available immediately at an introductory price of $49 through January 31st, 2016 (regularly $79) from authorized dealers and the UVI online shop.
