Arturia has launched V Collection 6, an update to the collection of virtual keyboard instruments.
Using their exclusive True Analog Emulation® & physical modelling technology, Arturia’s engineers, developers, and sound designers have been able to recreate the creme de la creme of keyboard instruments. Instruments that have shaped the course of popular music for over a century.
From illustrious, historic pianos to revolutionary digital synths, glorious organs to analog masterpieces, and everything in between; for the serious retro instrument fan, V Collection 6 is the only choice.
V Collection 6 includes 4 new iconic instruments, bringing the total number of synth and keyboard recreations to 21.
Buchla Easel V: recreating Don Buchla’s leftfield analog synth from 1973, the Music Easel changed the way people created sounds with performance-focused parameters, putting the focus on the artistry of being a recording artist.
Perfect for exploring alternative sound design, creating ambient, widescreen textures, and unfamiliar sequences. Taking Buchla’s experimental vision one step further, Arturia have incorporated Gravity, a physics-based synth engine into their software recreation, letting you take your music where no one has gone before.
DX7 V: the Yamaha DX-7 needs no introduction, and its legacy is felt in charts around the world to this day.
If you’ve ever listened to the radio, watched a film, or owned any 80s records, you’ll have heard the DX-7. Notoriously tricky to program, Arturia’s recreation simplifies the process by vastly improving the interface, and expands its synth capabilities with a mod matrix, customizable envelopes, extra waveforms, a 2nd LFO, effects, sequencer, arpeggiator, and more.
Clavinet V: arguably the most famous, influential electric keyboard of all time, the legacy of the Clavinet is everywhere.
Released by Hohner in the mid-60s, its funky, energetic tone gave life to myriad genres over the decades. From disco to R&B, prog rock to pure, unadulterated pop, the percussive, soulful sound of this legendary performance keyboard is reborn in Clavinet V. Arturia’s physically modelled recreation lets you dig deeper into the instrument, changing the physical properties of the instrument, and adding classic amp and effects combos into the mix.
CMI V: known fondly as the mother of all samplers, and a groundbreaking additive synth, the Fairlight CMI truly redefined pop music production following its release in 1979.
Arturia’s recreation builds on the features of the original by providing 10 multitimbral, polyphonic slots to design your sound, real-time waveform shaping, effects, a sequencer, and even a brand new “Spectral” synth that can scan and mix sections of audio, letting you create your own wavetable synth sounds.
The 6th edition of V Collection also features 2 major updates to existing titles.
Analog Lab 3: incorporating the classic sounds of all V Collection instruments in one handy interface, this is the ultimate launchpad for your creativity. Featuring a new browser, new modes, and ultimate controller keyboard integration, finding the perfect sound from over 6,000 presets has never been more easy or fun.
Piano V 2: the industry’s foremost physically modelled piano software suite just had an exciting overhaul. The 2nd version of Piano V features three extra piano models including a Japanese Grand, a Plucked Grand, and a Tack Upright, enhanced mic positioning, an improved EQ, a new luscious stereo delay, and an in-built compressor help your piano parts sit in your mix.
V Collection 6 also features more subtle tweaks, improvements, and enhancements to the original instruments.
Until January 10th, V Collection 6 is available for 399 EUR (regular 499 EUR). Owners of V Collection 5 or individual Arturia instruments can get additional discounts from the My Arturia area.
