New UVI Drone FX Texture and Atmosphere Designer MAC/PC VST AU AAX Software (Download/Activation Card)

by UVI
Original price $199.00
Current price $149.00


Designed for composers, sound designers, and musicians, Drone is a creative instrument that delivers constantly evolving textures and atmospheres, from deep and powerful low-end ambiences to rich and shimmering environments.
Outfit a dual-layer sample synth with hundreds of included long-format samples, turn them into mesmerizing textures with the IRCAM Granular engine, add depth, grit, and detail with built-in effects like Swarm, Feedback Loop and Harmonics, and easily craft movement to taste with a customizable XY controller, and Chaos or LFO modulators. Drone is a fully-featured tool expressly designed to create rich and detailed sonic environments and sound effects with endless movement and variety.

At a high-level Drone is a multilayer sample/granular synth with unison, feedback loop, harmonic modulator, manual and automated parameter animation, professional-quality bus effects, a 32-step gate sequencer, true surround sound engine*, and native MPE integration, fueled by an exclusive library of long-format samples designed specifically for drone and soundscape creation.
Whether you're looking to quickly browse presets for inspiration or craft your own sound from concept, Drone's interface is structured to provide what you need when you need it.

Sound Exploration
The high-level MAIN page is the ideal place to browse presets, explore the included sample library, and make broad-stroke changes. When you're ready to dig deeper, the full range of controls are available in dedicated Edit, FX, Modulation and Settings pages.
Dual Sample/Granular Engine
The EDIT page houses the full set of Source 1, and Source 2 sample layer controls, the XY pad, LFO/Chaos modulator, and the Swarm and Feedback Loop effects. Quickly browse the 500+ samples by category or hit the Randomize button until you find the perfect one, choose between conventional Sample or IRCAM Granular engines, adjust level, pitch, and attack and release times and shape.

XY Animator
The XY pad lets you manually control and animate your sound, and is a great tool for purposed sound design and cinematic movements. The Y axis controls the mix of per-voice effects (configurable on the FX page), while the X axis can blend Source 1 and 2 in a few different ways including typical crossfade and filtered modes.

Chaos Modulation
Directly below the XY pad is the Modulator, which provides automated motion to your sound in either the predictable XY LFO mode, or dynamic Chaos mode. In XY LFO mode, you have a fully-customizable LFO for each axis, with variable shape, speed and depth, with unipolar/bipolar range and switchable phase. Chaos mode animates the XY position randomly, using only Speed and Depth inputs, which can make fantastic automation targets.
