Arturia releases Origin
9th October 2008
Arturia has announced that Origin, the company's first hardware synthesizer, is now shipping.
"We are extremely proud to be shipping Origin", says Frédéric Brun, President of Arturia. "The project has taken much longer than we initially thought and, since we had announced the product early, Origin has been eagerly awaited by the market. In the end, taking more time has proven necessary to foster quality and details."
"During the last 4 years, Arturia has been dedicated to bringing a synthesizer that would be both innovative and powerful. At the same time, the company wanted to offer a simple, enjoyable and straightforward experience to the musician. We truly believe that we have achieved that and look forward to people seeing Origin in action."
Origin goes beyond the traditional definition of synthesizers. It is a hardware DSP system that houses several synthesizers in one machine. Some of these synths come from the past, such as the Minimoog, some are totally new and innovative.
Loaded with modules extracted from the best synthesizers of all time, Origin lets you combine these modules and take advantage of the additional possibilities put onboard.
The result: a new type of sound accessible through an extremely intuitive interface.
Pricing & Availability
Origin is now shipping. It has an MSRP of $3,200 / €2,490.

** With a future update to the Origin line, you will also be able to open dedicated software on your Mac and PC and use the instrument as an AU or VST plug-in. Unfortunately this feature isn't available with this initial release of Origin (and will not be available for some time).
