On the other hand, I also have FM8 and it delivers same quality sounds with less cpu.
So soon I will uninstall arturia demo.
Both are excellent synths, and both do a great job with FM synthesis. But they are different, and one does not replace the other, IMO (except for plain vanilla DX7 sounds).

But in that chapter, I think the DX7 V wins. IMO, it translates better the original DX7 family SYX files.
Totally Agree. DX7 V is a superb emulation. For me, just alone itself deserve the cost of updating
I recently watched a video on YouTube. On some patches FM8 was closer to the DX7. On others it was either Dexed or DX7 V. I don’t think any captures the original 100% but FM8 is mellower than DX7 V and just has a good sound character of its own.

I dunno if this was shared yet on this thread:

Just three sounds, and somehow similar. Hardly a good basis to make a judgment. Yet, IMO the DX7 V showed that it's the closest to the DX7 V. Regarding the differences, there are some variables in the way the sound was recorded from the DX7 into the computer that may affect what we hear. Also, there are some settings in the DX7 V that have to be changed specifically for DX7 compatibility (like velocity, for example). Nothing is said about that, so we don't know what kind of settings were used.

Anyone know when NKS is supposed to release for the newest additions (Buchla Easel, DX7 etc...)?

No - Arturia don't seem to be in any hurry and there are bugs in KK anyway. There is an unofficial port of the Buchla to NKS.

Thanks! Where might I find such port?

Upgrade price is back down to $200 again (dropped $50). Was planning / hoping to hold out until the upgrade price fell to $99.. but may pull the trigger anyway. I already have VC 5, and Analog Lab 3. Of the new instruments, the DX-7 V is the one new for VC 6 instrument, that I'd like to have access to deeper controls on. With the other (new) instruments, enough of their timbre controls are already mapped to my Laboratory controller, and their Analog Lab 3 presets were robust enough that I wasn't in any hurry.

Anyway - small savings (again), as the price just fell back (to the lowest it will ever go) :lol:

The V-collection gets a 6.1 update which makes all instruments are now fully .nks compatible.

https://www.arturia.com/vc6-1-update

They're also giving all v-collection 6 owners three sound banks (works for new and previous customers apparently).

2 questions.

1. Can the dx7 from arturia import the dx7 hardware patches and is it better than dexed or fm8?

2. Was the cpu usage improved? I remember that many said it it hilariously high.

YES for the first, it depends on the opinions for the second (to me, it is better than DeXed, and also better than FM8, although the two are quite different and sort of complement each other.
2. Was the cpu usage improved? I remember that many said it it hilariously high.
The CPU usage improved, but it is still higher than the other two

So, the $199.00 upgrade price is the same as for the full version, sorry Arturia I don't see any big upgrade deal here.

What do you mean, the same price?
