User interface & Usability
UVI has organized the UI for all instruments in a similar way. Controls knob and buttons support MIDI-learn, the configuration of those features is easy and follows assignment and use similar to many other products.
On the Edit page, you can adjust AMP, Filter, and tremolo amongst some other effects and their defining features of those older organs and sounds produced.
You have access to an effect rack which allows you to turn in effects or effect panel. Using the Panel-Interface is intuitive and straightforward if you ever used a hardware-based Panel.
All Instruments share a common FX page and Edit pages, good that UVI kept the Interface where possible consistent. Main page controls differ as the instrument requires different support of features, this is driven by what the original instrument included as a feature set.
