Your own personal Percussion Store

Have you ever imagined that you are alone in a store you like and you can choose whatever you want? That's exactly what's going on here: the folks from UVI went to their favorite percussion store and sampled every instrument they liked. Working with an experienced percussionist, they carefully recorded every aspect of each selected instrument. They also took cool pictures for main percussion, so you can have a "true" idea of the instrument you're playing with.

Painstakingly recorded on the best equipment

As is the case with all their products, UVI put painstaking effort into getting the best recordings possible. First, they rented an excellent recording studio with a percussion expert sound engineer, and then brought their gear: Brauner and Neumann microphones, Manley, Fearn, and Neve preamps and compressors, and high-end AD/DA converters.

Multi-sampled one-shot sounds with different playing styles

Percussion Store doesn't contain any loops, only single shots. Of course, every instrument was deeply "multi-sampled" in 24-bit/96kHz quality, at dozens of velocity levels when applicable, with different playing techniques (depending on the instrument).

How to use the UVI Percussion Store

UVI libraries are dedicated to be used with UVI Workstation and Falcon. UVI Workstation is a multi-timbral software instrument that provides unlimited parts, integrated effects, live performance feature, and a smooth real-time workflow. It operates as a Mac/PC standalone application and as a virtual instrument software plug-in in all major hosts.

This library has some great instruments represented, but I think they missed the mark. Most of the samples are uninspiring -- they sound very halfhearted. You can't tear it up with most of this stuff -- no rippin djembe solos -- with most of it you can only pitter patter. Latin Crash Cymbals 1 & 2 have no crashes, just weak pinging. Some of the samples are totally unusable, like the shakers, which shake a half beat or so after you tap the key (unless you shift the track forward after recording it). On some of the samples there are 5 keys next to each other that sound identical, a couple of dead keys, then 5 more keys with a different sound, on and on -- I have to shift the octaves on my 49 key keyboard to get to all of the sounds when they could have all fit in a couple of octaves easily -- makes playing on anything other than a full 88 difficult. And some of the tails are cut short, which just sounds cheap. If I had enough disc space, I would have gotten Stormdrum, which is 86GB. The Percussion Store is 1.5GB. I haven't fully explored it, but there are some samples that are good and usable (the Bata Iya, for example) -- maybe a third of them. Overall I'm pretty disappointed. I wouldn't recommend buying it.
