Arturia has announced the first major update to their flagship virtual instrument package V Collection 6 since its release in December 2017. Version 6.1 sees the introduction of several new advancements and refinements.
Now every V Collection instrument is "Native Kontrol Standard" enabled, meaning that Native Instruments Kontrol owners will be able to enjoy intelligent feature mapping, giving them fast, intuitive control over the sounds and parameters.
Refined Preset Browsing
The popular preset browser from Arturia's Analog Lab 3 is now available on all V Collection Instruments. This small but powerful change makes it easier to find specific sounds based on what instrument was used to make them. For example, Prophet V users will be able split their searches for sounds made using the Prophet VS, Prophet 5, and the hybrid mode.
To celebrate the update, Arturia are running a limited-time offer. During this promotion, 3 exclusive new sound banks will be offered to all V Collection 6 users. These sound packs let users explore the sounds made possible by Arturia's advanced modelling technologies.
Unique crossgrade deals are offered to existing customers, and upgrades to owners of older versions of V Collection.
The promotion will run between 25th April and 15th May. To find out your unique offer, visit the V Collection 6.1 page: arturia.com/vc6-1-update
The included sound banks included are:
- Air Tribute: 32 presets inspired by French electronic pioneers, featuring the most iconic keyboard and synth tones from Moon Safari.
- Sensual Piano: 62 presets exploring jazzy, smooth acoustic and electric piano sounds, a perfect backbone for your tracks.
- Addictive Additives: 32 inspiring sounds created using the Synclavier V, focussing on more cutting, contemporary themes.
This update is available for free to all owners of the V Collection 6. Owners of individual instruments can also benefit from the changes using the company's smart license management system, the Arturia Software Center.
