I have seen some rare time signatures like for example 4/16 time and 9/16 time. A quarter note would feel like a whole note in 4/16 time because a quarter is 4 times slower than a 16th and a half would feel like a double whole and a whole would feel

Make sure you looked for anything "UVI" inside the AU instrument section. I think their sample player is called something like UVI Workstation and you would need to select that instrument and "load" the UVI grands afterwards, but
