UVI Soundsource sample the WaveFrame Audioframe sampler 06/05/10
UVI Soundsource and WaveFrame Software Group tell us that they have introduced the first sound collection dedicated to the mythical sampler, the Audioframe. Here's what they have to say...
Back in the 80s, the WaveFrame Audioframe was the second generation of huge samplers like the Synclavier from New England Digital and the Australian Fairlight CMI. A complete 48 voice system sold for over $100,000.00 and at the time, the sound and feature set were worth it! That's why it was used by renowned artists and producers such as Peter Gabriel (credited on the LP "US") and Stevie Wonder, and also in the film industry for sound design, foley and ADR.
The UVI Soundpack WaveFrame Sound Collection is going in the complete opposite direction of the current trend for sound libraries. The set doesn't contain dozens of GB, nor even 1 GB; it weighs in at an impressive 350 Mb (yes Mb not GB) for more than 150 expertly handcrafted presets using more than 1400 meticulously recorded 16 bit / 44.1 kHz samples. All instruments have been imported from the original Audioframe Version H sound library, and remain true to the originals.
But size doesn't really matter, this collection contains lots of very useful and truly organic sounds: Keyboards, Guitars, Basses, Solo Strings, String Sections, Upper Brass, Lower Brass, Brass Sections, Woodwinds, Synths, Pacific Rim, Percussion, Drums, Effects and TestTones.
This collection brings you not only excellent quality, "bread and butter" sounds, but also a milestone in the musical history where new technologies injected a special soul into the music...with a special mention to the acoustic instruments that sound just amazing regarding the size they use.
