Inspired by a rare Japanese 8-voice analog synth

UVX80 is based on a well known Japanese manufacturers 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 thats 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, youd never know it was analog by looking at it, but theres no mistaking the warm and punchy sound this keyboard produces - its a legitimate analog beast, and somewhat of a sleeper gem from the era.



UVX80 in ActionDue 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.

The Interface

Inspired by the original hardware, UVX80s 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 its 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.
