Introduction

The Beauty of Firsts

There’s something evocative and mysterious about firsts. Normal people will recall their first pet, first crush or their first kiss. That’s not us. For us, that warm ethereal feeling comes from our first analog synth. There’s something timeless about it. Part of it is its place in history, being the first affordable and accessible analog synthesizer.

Part of it is a sonic fingerprint that resonates through over 40 years of live and recorded music. Regardless of the criteria we can only summarize by saying this instrument has made a permanent impression on us, and we’re not alone.

A Prolific Past

First made available to the public in 1971, this synth continued to be produced with very little change for over 10 years. Considered the most popular synth ever by some there’s no doubt the instrument has led a prolific life, leaving a massive wake in its path; changing perceptions and influencing synthesizer design to this day. With a striking balance of simplicity and sonic range it was one of the first real novice-friendly systems, a factor that surely contributed to its success and also made it a superb tool for teaching the basics of subtractive synthesis.

There’s No Quitting You

As firsts often do, this one taught us a great deal. It cultured in us a sensitivity to intuitive design and the importance of great sound regardless of form. In fact we’ve been speaking about it from a project perspective since we began. We knew that if we were going to do it, it would not only have to sound great but it would need to elicit that same balance of immediate simplicity and sonic reward - a deceptively complex task. As time progressed our vision crystallized; the design was ambitious but it was clear to all of us that this was a project we had to do.

Heart of a Hybrid Monster

One of our specialties is making hybrid instruments. With a hybrid instrument we get the best of both worlds. High fidelity sample-based waveforms produced by real circuits, in real machines give the instrument a pure sound from the start. Then accurately modeled filters and effects are used on the back-end to shape and control the sound, spending precious CPU cycles only where they’re needed. For this approach to work you need to build an amazing library of sounds and marry them to a truly advanced DSP engine. This is exactly what we’ve done for UltraMINI thanks to hundreds of man hours of tedious multi-sampling and the award-winning UVI Engine™.

Two Analog Souls

We started with a beautifully restored 1971 model, sampling every waveform of every oscillator across every key - and we did this for multiple overdrive settings. UltraMini seeps with a thick and immediate analog sound produced with the same 3-oscillator configuration. But we didn’t stop there. In 2002 the king of mono synths had a second coming; this version has its own wild character and we figured, what better way to make a Mini ultra than to give you two of them. Taking the new 2011 model, we performed the same comprehensive session creating an identical sample footprint.

Beyond Mini

Oscillators are only half the story—what about the filters? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ve included not one, but two of our aggressive analog-modeled Xpander filters in UltraMINI, giving you unprecedented control and a sound so sweet you’ll swear it’s analog.

Additional features include amplitude and filter key follow, unrestricted polyphony, mono retrigger, per-oscillator amplitude, stereo, color and drive control, a built in bit crusher, phaser, delay, limiter and our advanced algorithmic reverb—SparkVerb, built-in phraser and arpeggiator assignable per-oscillator, step and LFO modulations and a huge library of expertly crafted presets to explore.

UltraMINI has been designed to give you a rich, authentic sound and an immediate experience. An elegant GUI presents controls in an easy-to-understand layout, grouped for efficient and intuitive operation eliciting the feel of a real Minimoog.

Now lets get started!

UltraMINI Signal Flow Diagram

Functionality Overview

UltraMINI is a 3+1 oscillator subtractive mono/poly switchable synthesizer built on the UVI Engine

and a comprehensive library of sample data from 2 hardware Minimoogs (1971 & 2011).

Each oscillator includes an octave switch, 6 base waveforms and has independent amplitude, drive, color, pan and overdrive controls.

Oscillators 2 and 3 have sweepable detune with a range of -7/+7 semitones. A noise oscillator offers pink or white tone. Its signal travels alongside oscillator two, feeding through its amplitude filter.

UltraMINI can run in mono portamento, mono portamento 2, mono retrigger or polyphonic modes. A global pitch control allows for glide effect with independent time and pitch depth settings.

3 amplitude filters provide standard ADSR envelope controls and can be edited individually or globally. A [NO VEL] switch overrides velocity data with a fixed 128 value. A [VEL > ATK] switch overrides the attack parameter with the incoming note velocity.

Xpander filters run in parallel offering low pass, band pass and high pass modes. Each filter is equipped with ADSR envelope controls as well as depth and velocity. Filters can be edited independently or globally and have independent bypass switches.

Linear Key Follow is available for both Filter and Amplitude envelopes.

A unique stereo control is available per oscillator. By default you can pan each oscillator signal to any position in the stereo spectrum. An [ALT] control is available, which when engaged will invert the stereo position with every key press. With [ALT] engaged the [Spread] control is enabled and sets the distance from center (0 being center, 10 being fully panned).

A variety of sound shaping effects are available including the proprietary SparkVerb. Effects run in serial in the following order: bit crusher, phaser, delay, reverb, limiter.

An arpeggiator and a phraser are available, each containing independent bypass per oscillator. The arpeggiator and phaser are exclusive, meaning only one can be engaged at a time. Activating one will deactivate the other if it happens to be engaged. Both offer editable resolution, groove, gate and step length controls for a maximum of 16 steps. The phraser offers live pattern input for fast programming.

Step and LFO modulators offer per oscillator parameter modulation of volume, pan, pitch and drive as well as filter cutoff for both Xpanders. In legato mode the Step modulator gains independent delay, rise and smooth controls and the

LFO modulator gains attack, decay and depth controls.

Patches can be saved as multis through UVI

Workstation or as programs in MachFive3. Additionally if you’re working in plug-in mode, patch settings will be automatically saved in your project via. your DAW.

Classic and XL

Old and New: A Brief Explanation

Within UltraMINI are two wholly separate instruments, the

Classic and XL (pictured here). The Classic sports a natural wood and black metal faceplate while the XL is dressed in a clean white. Each instrument has the same control set; your experience operating one will translate directly to the other. The difference between them lies at the core.

UltraMINI is based on a quite massive sample footprint taken from 2 vintage synths—one from 1971 and the other from 2011. Extreme care was taken to ensure these sets were as near as possible to allow for a consistent and seamless experience. These sample sets serve as the fundamental difference between the two versions of

UltraMINI; quite literally they are different instruments.

There are both subtle and distinct sonic differences between the two. To help illustrate this point we’ve made a generous preset bank available for both versions giving you a straight-forward way to AB a huge range of configurations if you’re so inclined.

We hope very much that you enjoy exploring these two synths and that you find ways to apply their particular strengths in your work.

Low CPU Mode (UltraMini LE)

Filtering CPU Cycles

UltraMini’s oscillators are powered by large multi-sampled libraries instead of realtime algorithms leaving the lions share of processing duty for two high quality multi-mode physically modeled filters. Under many circumstances, especially when running in poly mode, UltraMini can be quite resource hungry which is undesirable in larger sessions and on laptops.

In order to compensate for these environmental variables we’ve included a separate version of UltraMini with an optimized engine called UltraMini LE. The LE version functions near identically, with the only UI difference being in the filter section (see right-top). A significant amount of rework went into streamlining efficiency of the filter section, among others, allowing you to run more instances with less CPU overhead and for the most part very little difference in sound.

In order to get the best balance of sound quality to CPU efficiency the filters in UltraMini LE are single mode lowpass instead of switchable multi-mode. As lowpass is the most commonly used filter mode this should generally be a transparent change. However, in cases where presets have been designed with a bandpass or highpass filter mode the setting will be conformed to lowpass for

UltraMini LE likely resulting in a noticeable sound change.

Please make special note of this and pay close attention to the filter settings if moving between versions.

Additionally UltraMini LE utilizes a streamlined subset of the main sample library to improve loading speeds.

You can find the LE version of UltraMini along with the other modules in the UltraMini.ufs file (see right-bottom).

If the LE version does not appear in your UltraMini.ufs please download the latest version of UltraMini from the UVI website

(log in and click ‘Downloads’ under your user name).

UVI Workstation: Tips + Tricks

MIDI Learn Arpeggiator

Most UVI Workstation parameters can be automated via. a convenient

MIDI Learn. MIDI Learn allows you to bind a physical MIDI controller to specific parameters within UVI Workstation.

Any FX tab parameter, Macro Knob or Slider in UVI instruments can use the MIDI Learn feature

The MIDI controller type and the MIDI Channel assignment will be saved with the multi or with your song in the host sequencer

Automation is assigned per-part

To use MIDI Learn:

1. Right-click the parameter in UVI Workstation that you want to automate

2. After the MIDI Learn dialog appears, Trigger the desired MIDI input controller (knob, fader etc.)

To remove a MIDI controller assignment:

Right-click the desired parameter and press “Delete”

Unlimited FX

UVI Workstation comes equipped with a robust arpeggiator. To insert an arpeggiator in a part, you need to display the Single view in the

UVI Workstation, then click on the note icon. The arpeggiator can be employed as a pattern gate, arpeggiator, or even an advanced rhythmic processor for your live MIDI performance or sequenced MIDI tracks. Arpeggiators can be inserted in an unlimited number of parts.

Preset Stacking

Thanks to the simplicity of the UVI Workstation you can stack as many preset as you want by simply assign multiple part on the same

MIDI channel.

Split, Velocity & Key Switch

UVI Workstation offers a wide variety of FX, or effect processors, to cover all your audio processing needs. The FX implementation is robust and includes the ability to insert unlimited FX slots in several stages of the signal flow.

Click the “FX” tab to open the FX page on the Single view

In Multi view the FX section is always displayed

The Keyswitch settings allow you to load multiple presets into two or more parts and dynamically play and mute them from your MIDI controller using key switching, note range, velocity range or any combination of the three parameters. This powerful feature gives you a great deal of real-time control.

Scroll Wheel

All knobs can be adjusted with the scroll wheel on your mouse.

When you double-click on any knob or slider, you can manually enter or type in the desired value.
