UVI, producers of one of the best selling urban sample libraries ever, are back with the most complete suite of instruments and sounds for beat-driven street music production on the planet. Urban Suite delivers 5 new instruments and a massive sample library tailored for contemporary music producers, perfect for hip hop, R&B, trap, glitch, beat, experimental and more. Both a comprehensive retrospective of the classics and a collection of new and innovative tools, Urban Suite embodies the creative spirit and boundary-pushing heritage of beat music production.
In an effort to give you the absolute best sound quality possible, every sample used in Urban Suite (both in-instrument samples and all of the construction kits) were professionally mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound in NYC. A modern legend of urban music, Chris has worked with Rihanna, JayZ, 50 Cent, Wu-Tang Clan, Snoop Dog, Nas, Naughty by Nature & Robin Thicke to name a few. His amazing ears and genre expertise have helped to make every aspect of Urban Suite sound simply fantastic out of the box.
The Ultimate Urban Drum Machine
Deep sound design capabilities and a comprehensive sample library allow you to craft your own drum kits to perfection with kicks, snares, claps and hi-hats. Hundreds of sounds were specially designed for BeatShaper, ready to be mixed and mangled into your own creations wivth intuitive controls, analog-modeled filters, envelopes and effects. From crisp hits to massive sub-bass booms no other drum machine delivers this balance of quality, control and ease-of-use. Build your kits from scratch or use one of the 150 included. BeatShaper is a must-have for the discerning beatsmith.
A Beat Machine Legend, Reborn
Likely the most iconic and sought after drum machine in the world, the big daddy of the X0X series is also one of the most overdone when it comes to sample libraries. With a monotony of same´ish kits of average quality available we wanted to do her right and set the bar. Prime8 starts with a deep, multi-sampling process using Class-A gear and an extremely high resolution capture. After meticulous editing the entire library was mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound, a modern legend of urban music, giving Prime8 a distinct and immediate punch. We dressed the GUI in classic garbs and outfitted each instrument with an arsenal of effects including reverb, delay, drive and a combo lp/hp filter giving you a huge range of sonic territory. A built-in sequencer helps you get the groove started and individual outs for each instrument let you track and mix the way you want. Prime8 breathes new life into a well-known classic with a thick and primal force that can carry even the heaviest tracks. Includes 50+ preset kits.
Unique Tweakable Sample Synth
A sample-synth for the street, Urban X takes 3 of our fully-featured synth voices including discrete amp, multimode filter, pitch, stereo and multi-effect units and loads them with a massive set of sounds ideal for urban music. The easiest way to think of Urban X is turntable meets synthesizer, but not just one—three of them—which means you can layer and tweak sounds to create totally new sonic expressions. Use it as a simple sample player, polyphonic synth, or go extreme, layering, morphing and distorting the sounds for wild effect. Urban X is a flexible and totally-customizable instrument designed to bring new sounds and creativity to your workflow. Includes 1,000+ sounds and 100+ presets.
Fully-loaded Expressive Scratch Instrument
There´s no way to accurately reproduce the experience of scratching without a turntable but we´ve come pretty close with Scratch Machine. Grab a keyboard or pad controller, load up one of the classic sounds like ´Fresh´ or even a Speak´n´Spell and let loose! All sounds were recorded directly from decks masterfully controlled by our resident turntablist and scratch artist DJ Quartz—over 10,000 samples in all—single-shots, round robins and loops, giving you a huge variety of articulations and expressive options. Interactive pitch control, playback speed, 6 built-in effects, a 3-band EQ and a lp/hp filter combine to make a fun and powerful vinyl-inspired instrument with a classic vibe and authentic sound. Includes 10,000+ samples and 100+ presets.
Multitrack Looping Powerhouse
Whether you´re looking for that first bolt of inspiration or just trying to find a tight groove, BeatControl´s here to help. A multitrack looper with a huge sound library of genre-correct material including drums, bass, and phrases lets you mix, tweak and play realtime in our standalone player or your favorite DAW. Create grooves, builds, layers or even full songs in minutes. Includes 150+ presets.

I came across the product a while ago whilst buying some more generic UVI products. The suite was on offer last week, at a good price so I decided to make the purchase. My main use is for video games, TV adds, YouTube videos etc so I can end up covering all kinds of styles of music. I’m running the UVI WorkStation in Cubase 8 without any major problems. The suite is primarily for street / urban style, and particularly for people who may prefer making music based on loops rather than actually playing and recording individual musical parts. That said various of the VSTs included allow you to work on a note by note composition. UVI are principally a sample based VSTI production firm. So rather than recreate the technology of the hardware they emulate they just go ahead and sample it. This gives you limited ability to do deep sound editing / creation. On the other hand the selection of hardware patches they have “emulated” is very comprehensive, and mostly very useable. First and foremost though is the quality of the sample. They must be using some pretty good equipment! Where as many other sample based libraries seem to be a bit “watery”, UVI’s stuff is always really “Full”. Straight out of the box the sounds sound professional, rather than “home studio” – which is a real time saver for those of us working from home studios! Hopefully Ill find the time to do a more detailed review later on. Regards ***
Gute Tools für das schnelle programmieren von urbanen Grooves und Sequenzen, könnte aber um ein abwechslungsreiches Liveset zu gestalten flexibler zu bedienen sein. Große Loop und Soundauswahl.
Klasse Tool für Nu RNB Produktionen!
