– TimewARP 2600
Way Out Ware presents the one and only ARP 2600 emulation endorsed by the original ARP 2600 inventor! For nearly 4 decades, the ARP 2600 has helped to provide the backbone for electronic, urban, and popular music. The TimewARP 2600 delivers the same fat sound with twice the flexibility; at a fraction of the price of the original. This is one synth that you can’t afford to be without.
Wrap yourself around Twist 2—the Spectral Morphing Synthesis instrument from SONiVOX. Combining a dynamic interface, an advanced pattern generator, and onboard effects, Twist 2 is your toolkit for serious sound design using simple, time-saving controls. Two swirling sound layers provide unique harmonic controls, forming the foundation for every patch.
Experience audio vertigo-go with the swaying, shifting, tones of Wobble 2—the Dubstep Grime Generator from SONiVOX. This highly expressive instrument revolves around two channels of our exclusive Spectral Morphing Synthesis engine. Each channel features independent harmonic controls, individual filtering, and discrete LFO controls—including tempo-sync.

– Big Bang Universal Drums
Handcrafted in the USA, this slammin’ kit from SJC Custom Drums provided an excellent sample source for Big Bang Universal Drums 2. True to their word, these universal drums provide excellent tone, color, and sound for any music project or performance from the worlds of pop, hip-hop, world, funk, rock, or any musical style.
– Atsia Percussion
This collection includes the Dunumba, Kenkeni, and Sangban (all from Ewe tribe of Ghana), Gungon (from the Dagomba of Northern Ghana), and Macana Surdo (from Brazil). All are cylindrical, double headed drums, though they are otherwise built quite differently and create a variety of sound.
– Blue Jay Drums
Blue Jay Studios. This is where Carly Simon, Alice Cooper, Joni Mitchell, Amy Grant, the legendary group Boston, and many other great musicians have recorded and mixed their CDs. Taking full advantage of Blue Jays excellent wood, stone and glass recording rooms, we recorded natural small ambient and large ambient versions of a 15 piece Yamaha Maple Custom drumset, including DW and Yamaha snares, a Paiste hi-hat and Zildjian cymbals all here in 1 value priced DVI.
– Bright Electric Guitar
SONiVOX captured a truly sweet guitar sound that is sure to liven up your tracks with authentic Strat tone. Includes multi-velocity mutes and tones plus a great collection of nice, bright chords that will really cut through your mix.
– Classic Bass
The dean of American basses, the Fender Precision is a four-string workhorse chock full of thick, rich tone. Somehow, simply calling it fat doesn’t do it justice. The Classic Bass DVI gives you this classic bass tone in two varieties- finger style (with nice, thick slaps on top) and picked, the better to cover all the musical basses.
– FM Piano
A classic sound that has appeared on more hit recordings than virtually any other keyboard.
An incredibly authentic replication of a real harmonica, this instrument features a wide key range with several octaves of every note in the 12-tone scale. The chromatic harmonica can be played in any key, allowing for versatile use throughout several different genres of music. This instrument is widely used for playing blues, folk and county as well as classical, jazz and pop. With its precise articulation and definitive tone, it stands out as a pristine virtual instrument.
The SONiVOX DVI Harpsichord is a faithful reproduction of the real thing- right down to the lightly percussive thunk when you release the keys. Import a slice of European nobility straight to your computer.
– Session Drums 1
Using close microphone techniques at Wellspring Studios in Boston, this collection captures the most natural elements of a beautiful set of DW and Pearl Drum kits.
– Silk Road Percussion
These Middle Eastern stick drums are typically used as solo or lead instruments but are also perfect for creating powerful break sections in songs as well; effective for achieving a stylized hybrid of sound with just a delicate touch of the unusual.
– Taylor Acoustic Guitar
Guitar enthusiasts know the Taylor 810 Acoustic Guitar for its pristine yet warm sound. SONiVOX sampled this one with the excellent Lawson Tube microphone and it sounds amazing. To top it off we have included more than just single note samples. They also included fret noise, harmonics, up and down strummed chords, and muted chord “chunks.”
