You know how those classic hits of the 50 and 60's CD collection commercials tell you it would take thousands of dollars and numerous hours to find all those great songs but they've collected them in one affordable package just for you? Forgoing the cheesy commercial, Arturia has done the same thing with synthesizers with it's V Collection virtual synth.
The Arturia V Collection brings you the sounds of the most legendary and sought after synthesizers ever in one very affordable package. This ultimate edition is the complete solution when high quality, authentic, and modern synthesizer sounds are demanded. The luxury box contains the highly awarded minimoog V, moog modular V, CS-80V, ARP 2600 V, prophet v, and prophet vs. On top of that, Arturia has added the JUPITER-8V to make the package even more complete.
With the collection of synthesizers in the Arturia V you will be able to create virtually every imaginable synthesizer sound with the true characteristics of their very rare and expensive predecessors at an irresistible old school price. And you won't have to search used instrument shops hoping to find one in real working order or pay and exorbitant price just to get it.
Synthesizers continue to play a crucial role in modern day music. Companies such as Moog, ARP, Roland, and Yamaha produced legendary synthesizers that were used in numerous hit records dating from the 1970's. Today, synths play a bigger role in music production then ever. The V Collection offers you emulations of these well-known retro instruments and allows you to access all their possibilities with perfect integration into the digital domain.
The Magnificent Seven
Whether recreating the abstract tonal qualities of the classic electronic soundtracks, or pushing forward the sonic boundaries of today, the Moog Modular V is the synth of choice for sound exploration, anywhere, anytime.
The ARP2600 V is a truly versatile sound creation tool with bite. Its raw and dirty character makes it the right tool for easy-to-create, massive drum 'n' bass stabs, growlin' funky bass lines, and spaced out drones.
When a punchy, fat sound is demanded, search no further than the Prophet V. Whether you want to imitate the blasts of the beat boxes of 80's New York or the electro dub club sound systems of now, the sound of the Prophet V will help you get it moving.
The Prophet VS brings you a uniquely crisp digital sound that easily stands out on its own. At the same time, it perfectly compliments the sound of pure analog synthesizers with the clear sound of four digital oscillators and a nice, creamy, warm filter.
From the starship funk lead lines of the 70s, to the gangster whine of mid-90s hip-hop, the ever present Minimoog has been making its phat presence felt for over 3 decades. Recapture all that history with the award-winning Minimoog V which is now polyphonic with extra modulation options making it a Memorymoog emulation as well.
With its ground-breaking design and earth-shattering sounds, the CS-80V has been featured on such diverse recordings as the good time soul of Stevie Wonder to the electronic tension of the Blade Runner soundtrack. This massive sounding synth is recommended for pads and string sounds.
Introduced in 1981, the success of the Jupiter-8 took everyone by storm. In terms of sonic possibilities, it complemented its competition by bringing something different to the arena. Today's Jupiter-8V is a real workhorse, capable of creating very versatile sounds, from the very 'fat' to the crystal' clear. With the modulation possibilities and effects within the synthesizer path, it goes far beyond its predecessor. Mixing tradition and innovation
Using analog synthesizers brings a warm lively sound to any music production. The vintage analog synthesizers were very innovative at their time. But obviously there are technologies today that did not exist back then. For instance it is impossible to play a chord on a Mini Moog or on an ARP 2600. In most cases there is no MIDI available and saving sound setting is not possible or very limited.
The synthesizers you will find in the Arturia V Collection will not only bring you the authentic analog sound recreations, they all offer full MIDI control, convenient preset management, effects and polyphony while also offering innovative features opening new creative possibilities. Another great advantage is that you can use multiple instances of every synthesizer in your studio environment, giving the possibility to use, for example three CS-80 V's and two ARP 2600 V's at the same time.
Alongside the Delay and Chorus effects, that are available for all the synthesizers in the V Collection, innovative features are added to each of them, opening a large window on the future. For instance, a modulation matrix with up to 6 connections (12 sources and 32 destinations) and an LFO are available in the minimoog V. In fact, this makes it a futuristic Memorymoog emulation as well. Four revolutionary tracking generators were added and an original ARP Sequencer model 1601 to the ARP 2600 V, enabling ever evolving and traveling sounds. A set of Analog Sounding Effects such as EQ, Phaser and Flanger that can be modulated by any audio source in the synthesizer were added to the Jupiter-8V. Adding a live-oriented Step-sequencer and the Galaxy module for advanced modulations to this synth is another example of how the V-collection brings new sonic possibilities to the table.
So don't waste your time and money searching for vintage synth sounds. The retro-vibe is all here in Arturia's V-collection.
