Behringer Solina vs Solina software clones


video upload by Analog Prophet

"A comparison between Behringer Solina String Ensemble and three different Solina software clones: Arturia Solina V2 (virtual analog), UVI String Machines 2 (sampled based) and a Solina sample pack från BiggaGiggas (samples).

The settings used in all examples is all instruments, ensemble on, medium bass volume, medium crescendo and medium release.

Some of the instruments are made to shine in stereo but for the sake of comparison everything is in here in mono, just as the original Solina was made as well as the hardware Behringer clone. No external processing such EQ has been applied but small settings on the instruments to reproduce about the same sound as close as possible and volume matching.

The purpose of the comparison is to show the different character of the hardware Solina clone and some Solina software clones."

30 modular systems in a multi-instrument and sequence designer

Quadra Modular is a powerful 4-part multi-instrument and sequence designer, ideal for the creation of dynamic, rhythmic, and evolving sequences utilizing an incredible selection of patches created on a wide range of modular synthesizers, from vintage to modern, stand-alone to fully customized and purpose-built systems. We approached recording these beasts as if they were acoustic instruments, creating discrete velocity layers and round-robins in order to capture their organic soul.

Quadra is a versatile instrument, capable of a wide range of sounds and uses from standard fare instrumentation to evolving, complex, and adaptive progressions and harmonizations that can be morphed and performed in numerous ways to suit the needs of your production. With a masterful selection of hundreds of professionally designed presets, Quadra offers incredible sound quality and near endless inspiration on-demand.

Quadra leverages a powerful instrument selection, deep factory library, focused and intuitive workflow, and expressive performance controls to deliver cinematic sound quality and near endless musical inspiration.

Curated Instrument Selection
Quadra provides 4 robust instrument layers that can be used together to create striking and evocative performances. Each layer can be assigned from a selection of 30 multi-sampled sources including massive stand-alone systems like the Colossus, to popular small format systems like eurorack.


At the heart of each of Quadra's instrument layers is a powerful, multimode 64-step sequencer with MIDI effects, allowing you to quickly add rhythmic grooves, create arpeggiator sequences, add harmonies, and even quantize the incoming notes to specific scales. Choose a global rate, gate length, and max velocity, then customize your sequence with per-step velocity, link, harmonization, pitch offset, octave offset, gate, step repeat and panning. Save your patterns to disk as presets to share, or use the handy "copy-to" button to quickly duplicate your finished sequence from one layer to another.

Quadra includes a number of MIDI effect modules that allow you to embellish and augment your sequences in creative ways, including Euclidean Emphasis which adds rhythmic accents, MIDI Delay, Random, and Pitch Drift which enrich your sequence, and a scale quantizer that allows you to snap all notes to a scale of your choosing. You can even drag-and-drop the modified sequences as MIDI into a track of your DAW.

UVI Introduces Noctua Multi-layer Instrument


video uploads by UVI

Venus Theory spent a year making a free plugin...

video upload by Venus Theory

"Howdy! Today I want to talk about the project that's taken up the last year of my life that you can get right now for the low price of free thanks to my friends at UVI.
Noctua ► https://bit.ly/noctuavt"



"From the mind of Venus Theory, renowned sound designer and YouTube creator, Noctua combines the worlds of hardware synthesis and boutique effects to realize an exquisite collection of hand-built instruments, ready to create sprawling soundscapes and evolving cinematic universes, rich with detail and movement.

Dive into an incredible multi-layer instrument built on hand-crafted samples, push and pull each layer individually with discrete microtonal sequencers, transform them with custom designed single-knob effect chains, and then finalize your sound with delay, reverb, and master buss processing - all from a single, refined and highly focused tool.

All sounds in Noctua were designed, recorded and processed by Venus Theory to capture the raw and visceral world of cinematic sound design. Divided into three categories, 'Effects Box' sounds were recorded from a variety of analog and digital hardware synthesizers processed through boutique pedals and custom digital FX, while 'EMF' sounds explore EMF recordings, transformed and multi-sampled using a variety of techniques and effect chains to create usable sonic instruments, and 'Analog', as a morphable raw source, giving users a deep pool of sonic possibility and textural exploration.

Each of Noctua's 3 sound layers has been fitted with a complex, microtonal sequencer with built-in randomization and probability. From subtle modulation and detuning to complex voicing and progressions, each layer can be customized with deep sequence control to create lush movement and sonic narrative, all with clear and easy-to-use controls.

Noctua's sound sources are treatable with fully adjustable delay and reverb sends along with powerful master buss processing including overdrive, compressor, eq, and maximizer let you dial-in the perfect sound, all from within the instrument - delivering a complete toolbox for evolving, cinematic sound design.

Noctua features a custom designed selection of one-knob fx chains. Here you can quickly browse different treatments and utilize them for sonic reinforcement, or to create performance-based transformations to the overall energy and grit of your sound. Each chain was designed by Venus Theory, providing a wide range of unique characters to explore.

100 hand-crafted presets are included, professionally designed both by Venus Theory and the UVI sound design team, delivering stylish and rarified sonic tapestries, from brooding and nuanced to terrifying. Presets are fully editable, allowing you to easily adapt the ideas to suit your needs, or create your own designs from scratch."

UVI Introduces HX-20 - Iconic Semi-Modular Soft Synth Based on the KORG MS-20

UVI HX-20 | Trailer
UVI HX-20 | Preset Showcase
UVI HX-20 - Overview

"Introducing the new 'HX' series, HX-20 provides a powerful hybrid architecture combining 3 hardware-based wavetable and sample oscillators with physically-modeled filters to deliver a versatile and creative re-imagining of an esteemed classic."



via UVI

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.

More Than The Sum

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.

Hybrid-X Engine
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.
