A diverse suite with a rich and expansive sonic range, The Beast from Big Fish Audio embodies the timeless sound of vintage, luxury electronics.
Using electronics developed for NASA, a machine of luxury was first born in 1975 for the musical elite. Starting off as a gorgeous FM synth, it evolved into a comprehensive workstation through subsequent expansions. Its emergence into the professional studio inspired many of the leading avant-garde artists and sonic visionaries to embrace its potential, including Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Michael Jackson, Sting, Kraftwerk, Stevie Wonder, and Depeche Mode, among others.
Once again inspired by the sounds of yesteryear, UVI has constructed a comprehensive software suite comprising 3 complementary digital instruments -- each fully equipped with a vast array of both cutting edge original sounds and classic presets. Employing a trusted combination of advanced programming and meticulous sampling and using the best analog and digital gear, the Beast brings the vintage character of this workstation back to a new generation of musicians and sound explorers. The result is an entirely new, comprehensive, and intuitive luxury instrument.
Also included is the latest UVI technology, SparkVerb, a highly advanced synthetic reverb that focuses on sound quality and musicality. From stratospheric choruses to lush ambiances and to resonant unisons, SparkVerb gives you a huge palette and direct control over the patches. Add lush atmosphere to any of your configurations instantly.
