Arturia has released V Collection 6.
Using their exclusive True Analog Emulation and physical modelling technology, Arturia's engineers, developers, and sound designers have endeavored to recreate their choices of the crème de la crème of keyboard instruments.
V Collection 6 represents a landmark in the title's history, with the addition of 4 iconic instruments reborn in software, rendered in meticulous detail, and given new features designed to take them beyond their original spec. This brings the total number of synth and keyboard recreations in the V Collection to 21.
- Buchla Easel V is a recreation of Don Buchla's left field 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 has incorporated Gravity, a physics-based synth engine into their software recreation.
- DX7 V: Notoriously tricky to program, Arturia's recreation is designed to simplify the process and expand its synth capabilities with a mod matrix, customizable envelopes, extra waveforms, a 2nd LFO, effects, sequencer, arpeggiator, and more.
- Clavinet V: 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 is designed to let the user 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 by some as the mother of all samplers, and a groundbreaking additive synth, the Fairlight CMI 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 sound, real-time waveform shaping, effects, a sequencer, and even a "Spectral" synth that can scan and mix sections of audio, letting the user create your own wavetable synth sounds.
The 6th edition of V Collection also features 2 major updates to existing titles:
- Analog Lab 3: This incorporates the sounds of all V Collection instruments in one handy interface. Featuring a new browser, new modes, and ultimate controller keyboard integration, finding the perfect sound from over 6,000 Arturia presets has never been more easy or fun.
- Piano V 2: 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 designed to help piano parts sit in the mix.
Completing the line-up, and featuring more subtle tweaks, improvements, and enhancements, are the old favorites. V Collection 6 also includes Synclavier V, B-3 V, Stage-73 V, Farfisa V, Mini V, Matrix-12 V, Solina V, SEM V, Wurli V, Jup-8 V, ARP 2600 V, CS-80 V, Prophet V, VOX Continental V, and Modular V.
