UVI UltraMini 1.5 WiN/MAC
UltraMini 1.5 is here, bringing with it over 200 new factory patches, a significantly optimized low-CPU mode and computer-based authorization. Two legendary analog synths with the ultimate convenience of digital—now leaner, meaner and easier to use than ever!

The Beauty of Firsts
There's something evocative and mysterious about firsts. Normal people will recall their first pet, first crush or their first kiss. That's not us. For us, that warm ethereal feeling comes from our first analog synth. There's something timeless about it. Part of it is its place in history, being the first affordable and accessible analog synthesizer. Part of it is a sonic fingerprint that resonates through over 40 years of live and recorded music. Regardless of the criteria we can only summarize by saying this instrument has made a permanent impression on us, and we're not alone.

A Prolific Past
First made available to the public in 1971, this synth continued to be produced with very little change for over 10 years. Considered the most popular synth ever by some there's no doubt the instrument has led a prolific life, leaving a massive wake in its path; changing perceptions and influencing synthesizer design to this day. With a striking balance of simplicity and sonic range it was one of the first real novice-friendly systems, a factor that surely contributed to its success and also made it a superb tool for teaching the basics of subtractive synthesis.

There's No Quitting You
As firsts often do, this one taught us a great deal. It cultured in us a sensitivity to intuitive design and the importance of great sound regardless of form. In fact we've been speaking about it from a project perspective since we began. We knew that if we were going to do it, it would not only have to sound great but it would need to elicit that same balance of immediate simplicity and sonic reward - a deceptively complex task. As time progressed our vision crystallized; the design was ambitious but it was clear to all of us that this was a project we had to do.

Heart of a Hybrid Monster
One of our specialties is making hybrid instruments. With a hybrid instrument we get the best of both worlds. High fidelity sample-based waveforms, produced by real circuits in real machines, give the instrument a pure sound from the start. Then accurately modeled filters and effects are used on the backend to shape and control the sound, spending precious CPU cycles only where they're needed. For this approach to work you need to build an amazing library of sounds and marry them to a truly advanced DSP engine. This is exactly what we've done for UltraMini thanks to hundreds of man-hours of tedious multisampling and the award-winning UVI Engine™.

Two Analog Souls
We started with the beautiful 1971 model, sampling every waveform of every oscillator across every key - and we did this for multiple overdrive settings. UltraMini seeps with a thick and immediate analog sound produced with the same 3-oscillator configuration. But we didn't stop there. In 2002 the king of mono synth had a second coming; this version has its own wild character and we figured, what better way to make a Mini ultra than to give you two of them. Taking the new 2011 model, we performed the same comprehensive session creating an identical sample footprint.

UltraMini includes two fully independent instruments with uniquely skinned GUIs giving you the choice of vintage analog or crushing new school grit.

Beyond Mini
Oscillators are only half the story - what about the filters?

Don't worry, we've got you covered. We've included not one, but two of our aggressive analog-modeled Xpander filters in UltraMini, giving you unprecedented control and a sound so sweet you'll swear it's analog.

Additional features include amplitude and filter key follow, unrestricted polyphony, mono retrigger, per-oscillator amplitude, stereo, color and drive control, a built in bit crusher, phaser, delay, limiter and our advanced algorithmic reverb - SparkVerb, built-in phraser and arpeggiator assignable per-oscillator, step and LFO modulations and a huge library of expertly crafted presets to explore.

UltraMini has been designed to give you a rich, authentic sound and an immediate experience. An elegant GUI presents controls in an easy-to-understand layout, grouped for efficient and intuitive operation eliciting the feel of a real analog synth.

Whether you're an analog aficionado or just looking to add a sonic giant to your studio, UltraMini won't disappoint. A preset-packed, tweaker friendly ode to the arbiter of analog - available now at an incredible value.

Complete Replica of the Rare PROMARS Synthesizer

The PROMARS PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer is a complete reproduction of the rare and powerful PROMARS synthesizer first released in 1979. With two detunable VCOs and two sub-oscillators per voice, the PROMARS is easily one of the most deep and rich sounding monosynths ever created. Designed for SYSTEM-1 as well as Mac and PC hosts, the new PROMARS uses Analog Circuit Behavior to faithfully recreate every detail of the incredibly warm, dense sound of the original, with a level of authenticity that can only come from Roland.

VST, AU and PLUG-OUT compatible

Big Little Brother

The original PROMARS was a sibling of the legendary JUPITER-4, and is often thought of as simply a monophonic version. But the PROMARS was more than that. While the JUPITER-4 had one VCO and one sub-OSC per voice, the PROMARS had two of each. The pitch of the two VCOs could be slightly detuned to produce a unison chorus effect, and a sub-OSC was provided on each VCO. Able to produce sounds similar to a four-VCO synthesizer, the PROMARS sounded positively huge , and is practically the definition of big, fat synth tone. While not as well known as the JUPITER-4, the thick sound and "compu-memory” function that allowed sounds to be stored and recalled made it a highly regarded instrument with a unique place among the classic Roland monosynths.

With the new PROMARS PLUG-OUT Synthesizer, the sound of this rare, vintage instrument is perfectly reproduced with Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology. ACB faithfully captures the sound and feel of our most revered classics, using original design specs, and a detailed, part-by-part analysis of each analog circuit. While the sound and behavior is reproduced with total accuracy, we couldn't help but improve a few things in this new version. The VCOs have increased range settings, the LFO has a "Random” waveform setting, and the Noise and and Pulse Width sections have full range control of those parameters. And like our other PLUG-OUT synths, the PROMARS has great-sounding effects and an advanced arpeggiator section.

While multiple instances of the PROMARS plug-in can be used in any VST or AU compatible DAW, the PROMARS PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer offers seamless integration and unique capabilities for SYSTEM-1 owners. Connect a SYSTEM-1 and it becomes a dedicated controller, only lighting the appropriate knobs and sliders pertinent to the PROMARS. Transfer sounds back and forth between the PROMARS and SYSTEM-1 and even use the SYSTEM-1 as a high-quality audio and MIDI interface. Or break free entirely and PLUG-OUT directly to the SYSTEM-1, creating a stand-alone, hardware PROMARS synthesizer with real physical controls that can go anywhere and doesn’t require a computer.

Soft / VST Instruments 17-10-2015
There was something about older drum machines and synths that made them sound punchier and more pleasing than today’s clinically perfect sounds.

"That Thing” is a multi effects processor that was designed to get you "That Thing” missing from digitally perfect tracks today. It features a beautiful wide and deep chorus section great to thicken anything from synths, vocals, bass, pads drums and other sounds. The soundscape generator features 50 samples of old vinyl players, tape machines, old radio, tube gear, atmospheres, ambiences etc. These ad to your sound with an envelop follower, so the sounds add in only when signal is present and move, and pan with the level of the signal. Easily change the pitch of the soundscape to make it work with any audio you pass through it. The plugin features a bit crusher and distortion that emulates the sound of vintage drum machines giving you a choice of 8/12/16 and 24 bit audio. There is also an analog Low Cut and High Cut filter section designed to shape your sounds further. A wet and dry fader is included to blend in the effects with your original audio.


Multi Effects Plugin- Customize your tracks to sound different.
Bit Crusher – Emulate Vintage Drum Machines.
Analog Modelled Chorus – For wide, thick & rich sounds.
Soundscape Generator: Vinyl, Tape, Tube & Nature – 50 included.
