Huge 8GB sample library

PlugSound Pro from UVI is a high-quality sound library that's packed with essential instrument sounds. From keyboards to drums and percussion to full-on orchestral sounds, you'll find it in PlugSound Pro. This 8GB library actually includes all the sounds from UVI's award-winning PlugSound Box on top of a host of additional sounds.

Designed to work with UVI Workstation software, which comes included

To take complete control over the sounds, PlugSound Pro includes UVI Workstation software. It's compatible with AU, VST, and AAX plug-in formats on Macs and PCs. It also works as a standalone application. UVI Workstation offers a Smart Browser, tempo syncing, easy previewing, MIDI-mapping, unlimited effects and disk streaming, intelligent use of CPU resources, and more. It even comes with a host of built-in effects, including excellent convolution reverb. Alternatively, you can also use the samples with UVI Falcon.

Rich keyboard sounds

If it's keyboard and piano sounds you're after, you'll find them aplenty in UVI PlugSound Pro. In the sample library, you'll get acoustic pianos across classical, jazz, and pop styles, in addition to more honky-tonk and detuned-style pianos. There are also famous "suitcase-style" electric pianos, as well as electric organ, clavinet, synth-based keyboard sounds, church organ, accordion, celesta, vibraphone, music box, and xylophone.

Fretted instrument sounds

UVI gave PlugSound Pro a ton of traditional fretted instrument sounds, including a wonderful acoustic guitar section. There's an exceptional "Spanish-style" nylon guitar, famous 12- and 6-string acoustic guitars, plus Dobro and Bottleneck presets to give the collection color. On the electric side of things, you get several clean and distorted "Strat-style" sounds through famous amps, and even a variety of Les Paul, 335, and jazz guitar tones. There's also an ethnic section, sporting rare multisamples from instruments such as banjo, mandolin, lute, sitar (and electric sitar), baglamas, bozouki, jubus, oud, lute, saz, and tzouras.

5,000 drum and percussion sounds

Give your tracks that essential backbone using UVI PlugSound Pro's 5,000 drum sounds. There are acoustic drum kits sorted by style, including jazz kits, natural kits (brushes and hot rods), treatment kits (distortion, gate, and spring reverbs), raw kits (for pop and rock), and then a massive electronic drum section. From the '70s to the '90s, the electronic drum section covers all the classics, sorted by the machine from which they originate. What's more, there are stylistic electronic kits to handle your dance, electro, house, techno, jungle, disco, lo-fi, and vinyl-style needs. You've also got a host of 60 interesting percussion instruments to give your rhythm character. Instruments include congas, djembe, bongos, triangle, shakers, castanets, darbuka, woodblock, berimbau, timables, rainstick, and many more.

512 synthesized patches

Enjoy a wealth of modern and retro synthesized sounds, with UVI PlugSound Pro. You get a range of analog and digital sounds. The "World of Synthesizers" collection focuses on real synthesized sounds taken from machines and sound modules, for a sound much like many hardware units. Synth categories include leads, organs, piano-like, textures, pads, soft pads, filter sweeps, basses, voices, flutes, composites, tines and bells, and more.

Excellent GM standard sounds

Following the standard for GM sound classification, UVI PlugSound Pro offers a complete "Global Collection," to give you great-sounding GM presets. In fact, there are 128 presets containing "light" versions of the original 128 GM presets. Plus, 7 GM drum kits are included with another 7 "light" GM drum kits.

Orchestral sounds

With UVI PlugSound, you have premium orchestral sounds in reach, thanks to its truly professional orchestral library. The library features a ton of articulations, so you can realistically create a professional orchestral arrangement. There are staccato, marcato, spicato, sustain with and without vibrato, pizzicato, and runs. As for instruments, you get strings (violin, viola, cello, contrabass), brass and woodwinds, mallets, percussion, and an excellent collection of men, women, and children choirs with both vowels and consonents.

Loops of all kinds

With this massive collection, you'll enjoy having hundreds of carefully sliced loops across a range of genres. There are acoustic, urban, electronic, acoustic and electric bass, guitar riffs, percussion, and vocal loops.

the ultimate sound is great

When I first purchased this item I was hesitant because I have so many virtual instruments in my studio already. But I must say that when I first heard the instruments on this ultimate sound pro-I was blown away. UVI did a fantastic job on the interface and there are so many filters that you can use to oscillate your sounds, you're not limited with what comes with the ultimate sound Bank. You can modify and change the sounds to your liking, then loops are fantastic to work with especially if you're just looking for groove to get started. I recommend this item 100% and for the price it is a steal.

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed yet!

This is a bargain. I bought this and NI's Bandstand. They work incredibly well together and cover just about anything. The acoustic guitars are, by the way, exceptional.

Nice for the $

This is a nice program for the money. Obviously it has its limitations, but overall it is really nice. Cons: 1. The drum loops are easily surpassed by any drum program such as Easy Drummer, and are not easily edited. 2. Customer Support is also very limited, as all my emails have been answered by someone in France(i think?) with so/so English. 3. Program seems to be a bit unstable at times. 4. Woodwinds are pretty fake sounding. Pros: 1. Very good job on the piano sounds, organ sounds, and synths. Some of the strings sound very nice, but some of them are not usable. Its hit or miss. 2. Most sounds can be easily improved with reverb. 3. Easy to use layout and effects.

Glitchy

This product is okay for very light usage but feels like it's still in Beta. It's riddled with clicks and pops in the audio as soon as I load in more than one or two layers (and I have a QuadCore machine with 5GB of RAM). I like some of the built in DSP but it crashes if you're tweaking the settings or changing through presets while playing back. When using the browser to find a sample the "original tempo" box doesn't always work. You have to check it, uncheck it and then check it again. It is also a processor hog - it uses MUCH more CPU time than other plug-ins of equal or greater complexity. I recently went to see if there were any updates and they had changed the interface completely to this FisherPrice-looking GUI that is even less functional than PlugSound Pro. In addition UltimateSoundBank's website is poorly laid out offering very little product support (I admittedly have not tried their phone support). PlugSound Pro has potential but the glitches, inefficient use of CPU and general unreliability make it a product I cannot recommend.
