Arturia's V Collection 6 New Instruments & 2 Major Updates

Tuesday, December 05, 2017

The team at Arturia have added for new instruments, bringing the total number of synth and keyboard recreations to 21. V Collection 6 new four instruments include:

1. BUCHLA EASEL V

Bucla Easel V recreates 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.

2. DX7 V 

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.

3. CLAVINET V
Clavinet V is 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.

4. CMI V

CMIV is 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.

Arturia's V Collection 6 Major Updates

The 2nd version of Piano V features three extra piano models including a Japanese Grand,
