Arturia has announced version 7.1 of its V Collection instrument bundle, an update that aims to improve your creative abilities, and boost your confidence when using software instruments.

On top of the usual compatibility upgrades and minor tweaks to performance, the latest update adds some seriously useful, powerful, and creatively inspiring features for users to enjoy.

This is the most comprehensive anthology of classic synth and keyboards ever made. This is decades of passionate research, modelling, and development. This is your chance to take your place in music history.

24 timeless instruments lovingly recreated in software, and modernized with contemporary features. They were cutting edge in the 60s, mind-blowing in the 70s, awe-inspiring in the 80s, they’re at the heart of today’s hits, and they’ll help you shape the sound of tomorrow.
