Arturia has announced the release of V Collection 8.2, an update to the award-winning synth and keyboard suite.

With version 8.2, Arturia took user feedback into account and made a number of thoughtful enhancements. V Collection users can now enjoy macOS M1 native compatibility, more microtuning features, speedier performance, and much more.

A suite of 28 software instruments spanning analog synths, digital synths, organs, acoustic pianos, electric pianos, and string machines – recreations of the most iconic instruments of all time.

They’re faithfully emulated using exclusive analog and physical modeling technology for unparalleled realism, and enhanced to allow in-depth sound exploration that goes far beyond their ancestors. These virtual instruments can be used standalone or in your DAW of choice, and are designed to work seamlessly with your favorite MIDI controllers.
