Paris, June 23rd, 2021 - UVI release Asteroid, a new instrument for creating powerful cinematic rhythms and percussive effects. Designed with an intuitive workflow, extensive sample library, and inspiring preset collection of sounds and sequences, Asteroid delivers 7 deeply-tweakable layers that can be used as discrete percussive voices or stacked to create massive hits. Sounds can be processed in a huge variety of ways for incredible sound design potential, and played back via an integrated 128-step sequencer with interactive performance controls to create epic rhythms, transitions, and effects. An endless source of inspiration for music, film, games and more, Asteroid is available now with a special introductory price of $99 / 99€ through June 30th, 2021 (reg. $149 / 149€).
Every sound in Asteroid has been meticulously recorded and edited to provide the highest level of quality, with a wealth of sources from acoustic and electronic drums and orchestral percussions to special effects, foley, and found sounds. The integrated library is massive, containing hundreds of samples, track presets, and sequences, that can all be mixed and matched, or even randomized, to provide inspiration for years to come.
Sounds in Asteroid can be sculpted through a deeply-configurable editor, with per-track spatial mixing, 4-voice unison, +/- 4 octaves of pitch shifting, EQ with sub and air bands, transient processing, multifx including, drive, bitcrusher, frequency shifter, phaser, flanger, beat repeat, and reverb and delay sends. Choose from stereo mix or multi-out modes, and easily create a massive sound using the Thrust control. Then master your sound with the integrated bus effects, offering studio-grade IR reverb, digital delay, 3-band EQ with sweepable crossovers, compressor, and limiter.
Asteroid can create epic rhythms, transitions and moving effects by way of an integrated 128-step sequencer. Utilize per-track velocity, pan, pitch, decay and reverb sequencer lanes, and take interactive control over your performance with the modwheel velocity switch to create cinematic percussions, twisted electronic drums, motion effects, transitions and more with your MIDI controller or DAW. Explore hundreds of included patterns or create your own, save them, share them, or dragand-drop the MIDI.
Deep, easy to use, massively editable, and absolutely crammed with professionally designed sounds and presets, Asteroid delivers an endless source of sound design inspiration, from nuanced transitions to epic cinematic percussion, drums, and effects.
Asteroid offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
