V Collection 8
Reviewed By elviecho

I dont know how accurate all these Emulations are but who cares? They all sound beautiful and the possibilities are really great because Arturia added nice extras to each plugin which the original hardware lacks of. For example: Have you ever tried to make a sound from scratch with a DX7? It is no fun, believe me! But the Arturia DX7 is completely different. It looks like the original but the concept behind is totally user friendly.
I dont have MrJubblys problems. Okay, the loading times for some of the plugins are a bit long but I made projects with up to 16 instances of Arturia synths without any problem and I never faced this unwanted Arturia-software-center-screen.
Sometimes problems are caused by the used hardware, but it is so much easier to make the developer responsible for every trifle.
However, the V Collection is fantastic. Now, on black friday, you will get 27 instruments for € 299...that means you pay less than € 11 per carefully crafted instrument. Think about that!

It deeply bothers me that the separate 'Arturia Software Center application' insists on opening in the background any and every time I open an Arturia V Collection 8 plugin and that in doing so, also delays the loading speed and quick access of Arturia plugins.

This is unacceptable to me as a paying customer and of all the many plugins I have purchased, the Arturia V Collection 8 (and Arturia Pigments) are the only purchases which I regret making. One thing is for sure, I know for certain I will never buy any Arturia software again in the future. I just wish I could offload these unused and unwanted plugins to some other poor soul.

I similarly avoid iLok plugins for their slow loading performance-degrading reasons (among others things) and if I had realised this was how Arturia's plugins also operated, I never would have bought them in the first place. In fact all these Arturia plugins are currently now just sitting on my PC never being used in any of my projects due to their sluggish load times, and since I have other far better and faster-loading alternatives, like my DUNE 3, PianoTeq 7 and U-He synth collection, which are unencumbered by such burdensome protection millstones.
