The sheer volume of sampled toy instruments in this collection is astounding. My only regret is I didn’t have access to 90% of these to play with during childhood.

First Look: Toy Suite by UVI

Toy Suite Acoustic Instruments Interface

UVI‘s latest library, billed as “The Ultimate Musical Toy Collection”, delivers a massive offering of electronic and acoustic instruments.  Weighing in at over 380 sampled instruments (including 8-bit and chiptune synths) this collection provides much more than just a trip down memory lane.

Each of the presets in the acoustic and electric categories come with a cute interface showcasing a photo of the original sampled instrument. There are more than enough toy pianos, music boxes and “baby” instruments than you might expect but also a nice offering of melodicas, whistles, harmonics, percussion and giggle sticks.

Toy Suite Electric Interface

The electronic presets range from organs, electric pianos, a really nice collection of 8-bit synths and a slew of not-easy-to-categorize toys such as style-o-phone, speaking machines, and sample players

Toy Suite 8-Bit Interface

The library comes with tone controls, filters, and effects inside the hybrid engine that is the developer’s UVI Workstation broken out into 1,185 separate presets with some multi-articulation presets, 34 Kits and 1,499 Loops.

In the first look video (above) I share my experience opening the library up for the first time and getting a feel for the scope and quality of this instrument. The sheer volume of sampled toy instruments in this collection is astounding. My only regret after playing through the library is that I didn’t have access to 90% of these toys to play with during my childhood.
