Paris, February 7th, 2018 - UVI today released Meteor, a swell and impact designer for creating rich and immersive cinematic sound effects for film, games, music and more. Meteor includes a comprehensive library of exclusive sounds and recordings that can be near-endlessly combined and edited through a featured and ergonomic user interface. A versatile 7-track design provides fully-featured sections for rise and impact sounds, allowing up to 3 rise and 4 impact tracks each with everything from basic channel controls to offset, high-quality filters, pitch-shifting and IRCAM granular processing.
The sound library of Meteor has been meticulously designed to provide a wealth of inspiring and useful material that spans artistic mediums and genres. From exclusive field recordings, foley, synthscapes and textures, to effects and instruments including symphonic orchestra sessions directed specifically for this collection. A generous collection of acoustic sounds provide organic tonal beds, micro details, conventional instruments, environmental cues and powerful impacts with striking presence and clarity, meanwhile Meteor’s synthesized sounds were designed in Falcon, resulting in rich swells, synthetic textures, dramatic crescendos and deep, sub pumping impacts that can be used to create extra weight for acoustic sounds or vivid sci-fi scenes. If you want to create sounds for performance simply flip the Hold switch and Meteor morphs from a sound design role into a playable instrument with full control over pitch, velocity and timing.
The 7-layer architecture is built with 3 tracks dedicated to rise sounds and 4 dedicated to impacts. Each offers both general track controls including volume, pan, bypass, mute, solo and effect sends for reverb and delay, as well as controls specific to the layer type. Rise tracks each include a customizable velocity curve, volume and pitch modulation, multi-mode distortion and a multi-mode filter. Impact tracks each include time offset, transient and tail length, multi-mode distortion, multi-mode filter, pitch glide and an IRCAM Granular mode. Rise time can be customized, and even locked so that you can easily browse presets or use the randomizer without affecting duration. A modulation page allows the creation of movement and variation by way of customizable volume LFO, multi-step filter and multi-step panner with preset shapes. Finally a master EQ, Width and powerful ‘Thrust’ dynamic effect provide final shaping and polishing of your sound.
A creative and powerful sound-design tool with a deep and intuitive feature set, Meteor delivers emotive orchestral gestures, dynamic risers and thunderous impacts perfect for producers and sound professionals working in film, games, music and more.
Meteor offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
