The Story of UDW-LE

The UDW Light Edition (LE) is a taster of the rare sounds of our full products UDW and UDW-CE. Built within the newly released MNDALA 2 engine, it gives an idea of the unparalleled sound design capabilities now at your fingertips.

Performed by our founder, composer & multi-instrumentalist Brian D’Oliveira, UDW-CE offers a window into our collection of rare pre-Colombian death whistles that were found during our research and development. Some of the death whistles were even handcrafted in our studio to expand their creative sound possibilities, and many of them were featured in the production of award winning AAA video game soundtracks.

UDW’s video-game audio-inspired interactive scene allows for non-linear multidimensional control and patch creation for intuitive, yet seamless musical expression.

Each death whistle is named to represent their characters. Having been sculpted by hand, their sounds are recognizably unique, each sample map representing a different death whistle.

Our approach to creating revolutionary instruments

Continuous play and the pushing of creative boundaries are foundational to our instrument creation process. Rather than trying to recreate true-to-life instruments, we choose to experiment and go off the beaten track, in search of a new kind of virtual instrument.

Inspired by the natural world and ancient knowledge from around the world, we embrace expressive (im)perfections. Performing and recording instruments using experimental methods to create sounds like you’ve never heard before.

From our bespoke extreme-quality recording method using ultrasonics, to our constant experimentation with unique workflows and sound sources, each Instrument we release is a playable manifestation of our exploratory journey.

During our sampling process, the subtleties and imperfections of live human performance are embraced and encouraged. Depending on the final intent, we will creatively post-process as little or as much as needed (sometimes beyond recognition), always making sure that the soul and character of the performance is intact once it’s been implemented as one of our expressive playable instruments.
