In the mess of technical figures, it's sometimes difficult to be realistic, so let's be honest. A few years ago, USB started to record all new sounds in 24/192 resolution, thinking that it was the best solution of all. In a way it is, but after tons of testing and comparing, they chose the 24/96 format for two main reasons. Although one can hear the difference between 16/44.1 and 24/96, even experts can't tell the difference between 24/96 and 24/192. And, to be honest, 24/192KHz is still too heavy to use many current computers and harddrives, even with the new productive UVI Engine.
The UVI Soundcard libraries are dedicated to be used with the brand new UVI Workstation, the MOTU MachFive II virtual sampler and BPM. The UVI Workstation is a multi-timbral software instrument that provides unlimited parts, integrated effects, live performance feature, and a smooth real-time workflow. It operates as a MAC/PC stand alone application and as a virtual instrument software plug-in compatible with Mac OSX and Windows for all major hosts sequencers.
