PX Sunbox by UVI


An accomplishment of instrument design, the SunSyn is fantastically complex-in-all-the-right-places. From German synth maker JoMoX. Released in 1999, it can be considered in straightforward terms as an 8-voice polyphonic analogue/digital crossover, or in a more gutsy way as 8 discrete measured mono synths. Each voice is outfitted with 2 genuine analogue oscillators able of saw, square, or beat with PWM, and 2 guided advanced oscillators with hundreds of waveforms and custom test bolster. The filter segment is similarly noteworthy, with a morphable 4-pole genuine analogue channel with discrete control over each pole’s cutoff recurrence. But perhaps the foremost groundbreaking perspective is the modulation matrix.

In the soul it’s much closer to that of bigger measured analogue frameworks, permitting 4096 conceivable routings per component, 4 elements per voice, all drained the analogue space. But not at all like completely analogue frameworks the tweak routings here can be rapidly made through an intelligently lattice and spared in fixed memory for moment review. Working with such a complicated instrument has its challenges, particularly given its age and restricted production. Numerous parts for the SunSyn are greatly uncommon and nearly incomprehensible to source. UVI during the overhauling and restoration their tech team had to cleanse parts from a second unit. A costly and to some degree, difficult process but worth it within the conclusion, as UVI’s sound designers, headed off to work on a fully-restored and superbly calibrated instrument with factory-spec parts.

PX SunBox gives you a profound and able toolset for making and altering patches. From the dual-layer engineering with ADSR amp envelopes, multimode channels with envelope, poly or mono modes with glide, pitch moving and progressed stereo modes, and helpful mod wheel mappings, to LFO and step modulators, two feature-rich arpeggiators, and a liberal choice of high-quality effects counting 3-band EQ with sweepable hybrid, drive, Thorus, outfit, Phasor, advanced delay, and Sparkverb.
