The result of ten years of research and development

IRCAM Solo Instruments has been in development for more than ten years between the famous IRCAM research department and UVI. The idea was to create the ultimate solo instruments sound collection - and to incorporate the best musicians, artistic directions, engineers, and equipment possible. All instruments were recorded using Prism converters with premium microphones. The sounds in the collection are the ones recorded via the close-proximity mono channel, so it's easy to add external effects, such as convolution reverb. All sounds are stored in 24-bit/44.1khz high resolution.

Includes sixteen solo instruments

The instruments included in UVI's IRCAM Solo Instruments are the violin, the viola, the cello, the contrabass, the flute in C, the oboe, the clarinet, the bassoon, the alto saxophone, the French horn, the trumpet, the trombone, the bass tuba, the accordion, the guitar, and the harp.

Instruments played by carefully selected musicians

To achieve their original goal, UVI and IRCAM set out to bring in extraordinarily talented, virtuoso solo musicians. The esteemed musicians involved in the UVI IRCAM Solo Instruments collection range from international prize winners to top ensemble players throughout the world.

Features rare playing techniques in addition to standard techniques

The UVI IRCAM Solo Instruments collection brings you not just the traditional sounds of each of the sixteen instruments, but also a host of rare playing techniques. Techniques include aeolian, hit-on-body, multiphonic, buzz, crushed, and more, giving you a wealth of ways to add expression to your orchestrations. All of the many presets have been carefully programmed with expressive key-switches and cross-fading techniques.
