Inspired by 80s digital sampling synthesizer Fairlight CMI
Press Release: Thanks to UVI, those distinctive sounds made famous by artists such as Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, David Bowie and others are all delivered in Darklight IIX – a brand new plugin inspired by the most mythical computer music instrument of the 80s.
Costing upwards of $100.000, this unique computer music instrument was unattainable by most and it remains a highly regarded and sought after instrument.
The original Fairlight was used by many famous artists in the 80s: UVI Darklight IIX
UVI obsessively created a complete set of instruments, sounds and sonic tools deeply inspired by the original digital monster. A unique, hybrid process of exhaustive multi-sampling, analysis, and advanced scripts for audio processing allowed UVI to not only capture the original character of this machine but to enhance its ability with a host of today’s most powerful analog modeled filters, LFOs, envelopes and effects all packaged beautifully in an old-school interface.
Darklight IIX offers several ´Pages´, each an instrument on its own: Page P - "Organic" Digital Sound Page B - Digital Drum Machine Page U - Creative Multi-Phraser
All of these combine to present you with the soul of this mythical machine, packaged in an easy-to-use interface with modern controls for enhanced expression and musicality.
With the free UVI Workstation 2.0.6, Darklight IIX can work: - as a stand-alone instrument, compatible with Mac & PC - as a VST, AudioUnit, RTAS and MAS plug-in. iLok required.
