Arturia has announced that V Collection 6, which features 21 iconic synth and keyboard recreations, is now available…
V Collection 6 is a landmark release for Arturia thanks to the addition of 4 new legendary keyboards reborn in software, which have been painstakingly recreated and packed with more features that, Arturia tells us, take them beyond their original spec. The 4 keyboards are:
Buchla Easel V: recreating Don Buchla’s leftfield 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 have incorporated Gravity, a physics-based synth engine into their software recreation, letting you take your music where no one has gone before.
DX7 V: The Yamaha DX-7 needs no introduction, and its legacy is felt in charts around the world to this day. If you’ve ever listened to the radio, watched a film, or owned any 80s records, you’ll have heard the DX-7.
Notoriously tricky to program, Arturia’s recreation simplifies the process by vastly improving the interface, and expands its synth capabilities with a mod matrix, customizable envelopes, extra waveforms, a 2nd LFO, effects, sequencer, arpeggiator, and more.
Clavinet V: arguably the most famous, influential electric keyboard of all time, 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 lets you 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 fondly as the mother of all samplers, and a groundbreaking additive synth, the Fairlight CMI truly 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 your sound, real-time waveform shaping, effects, a sequencer, and even a brand new “Spectral” synth that can scan and mix sections of audio, letting you create your own wavetable synth sounds.
Additionally, V Collection 6 features two major updates to the Analog Lab 3, which comes with a new browser, new mods and ultimate controller keyboard integration, and the Piano V 2, which features three extra piano models, enhanced mic positioning, improved EQ, a new luscious stereo delay and an in-built compressor.
