‘80S JAPANESE MAIDEN REVIVED

- Inspired by a rare Japanese 8-voice analog synth

- Over 250 patches of vintage analog warmth with modern controls

- Production-ready presets make great starting points for your own creations


INSPIRATION

UVX80 is based on a well known Japanese manufacturer’s first analog polyphonic synth, a

digitally-controlled 2+1 oscillator, 8-voice, 61-key instrument launched in 1984 with a gorgeous and

futuristic-looking visual stance. Technically comparable to the JX-3P, this synth boasted a more

robust architecture with 2 extra voices, a sub-oscillator and real pulse-width modulation. Despite its

technical advantages and profound sonic capability it would find a similar fate, never managing

great commercial success but attracting a cult following that’s present even today. While not as

difficult to edit as the 3P, this synth shared the lack of explicit controls found on the wildly popular

but more basic Juno-106 that launched the same year. A truly progressive design for the time,

you’d never know it was analog by looking at it, but there’s no mistaking the warm and punchy

sound this keyboard produces - it’s a legitimate analog beast, and somewhat of a sleeper gem

from the era.

Due to the limited production of the original machines very few are left today, with even fewer in

working condition. Our UVI Japan office was able to secure a pristine model, making sure it was

calibrated to factory specs before passing to our sound design team. Once here in Paris, we

pushed it to its limits, designing tones from classic to modern and letting the unique character of

this synth shine. Recordings we made using the highest-quality processors and converters

available, resulting in a fantastically rich and vivid library to serve as the basis for UVX80. Once

loaded into the UVI Engine our sound designers further polished these patches creating the hybrid

instrument we proudly present to you today. Now you can explore the distinct and powerful analog

sound of this vintage ‘80s synth with all the conveniences and flexibility of a modern studio

instrument.

INSTRUMENT

UVX80 delivers on the original synth and adds a modern refinement, expertly presenting its distinct

timbres and ample sound design capabilities from warm basses, shredding leads, atmospheric

textures and other-worldly sound effects to crisp bells and charactered strings. Easily browse the

preset sounds by type, layer them to create rich evolving textures, or dive in and edit them to

create your own sounds


Inspired by the original hardware, UVX80’s UI reflects an ‘80s futurism aesthetic while providing a

clear and easy-to-program instrument with familiar controls. A 2-layer architecture provides 28

sounds for oscillator 1 and 111 sounds on oscillator 2, each with it’s own multimode filter, ADSR

envelopes, pitch, portamento, stereo section, arpeggiator and modwheel assignments. A versatile

LFO and 16-step modulator provide quick control over the amplitude and filter and a final effect

section tops it off with high-quality drive, chorus, phaser, delay and reverb.

UVX80 delivers a versatile and electrifying ‘80s analog sound, exploring the fascinating and

profound beginnings of a Japanese powerhouse brand.
