Yep, ANOTHER one!
What can I say? I love EPs man!
This one is from UVI, who have made some of my favorite EP libraries in the past.
Tines Anthology is a collection of 8 EPs, so let’s peep it!
What is Tines Anthology?
It’s a mega collection of EP instruments across various generations.
You get 6 EP instruments and 2 piano bass instruments in the library.
It’s a soundcard for UVI workstation, or it also works inside MachFive 3 and Motu BPM.
Each instrument has it’s own interface for quickly tweaking the important parameters.
- content: 4.8GB
- format: UVI Workstation, Motu MachFive 3, Motu BPM
- price: $149 (introductory price, regular price is $199)
How does it sound?
It’s an EP…it’s gotta sound nice right? Well…it’s from UVI…and they usually make nice sounding stuff!
The EPs in here sound really good. First thing I notice is more in the high end, more of a “bellish” sound from the tines.
I like it because it still has a smooth sound overall, but just a tad bit more detail than some of their other libraries.
Now the “broken” Mk III, I wasn’t really too fond of, and the Mk 7 wasn’t bright enough for my tastes, but over all I really enjoyed the keys.
My favorites are the MK II and MK V, followed by the MK I, really nice sounding EPs
What’s the bottom line?
I love what UVI is doing with their scripted interfaces, and the instruments feel more optimized in terms of loading speed.
If you’re like me and you just can never have enough EP libraries, this is another one to check out for sure.
I give Tines Anthology 4 out of 5 subs, the extra sparkle in the higher end of the sound really gives it an extra bit of detail that I enjoy
There’s an extra bit of detail in a few of the instruments that cause me to grab for them over others in certain situations, I like the way they are still smooth but yet they cut through nicely.
