Arturia's V Collection 5 is your one-stop dream collection of the legendary keyboards behind many of the hits ranging from 60 years ago to 6 minutes ago. Arturia's award-winning modelling technology faithfully reproduces the way the original components behaved, delivering the very soul of these instruments in a way that samples simply can't.
They also took giant leaps in augmenting them with features the hardware inventors never dreamed of—like bringing polyphony to the mono synths you've always loved. With over 5000 designer presets, the included Analog Lab 2 makes it easy to harness all that power to find just the right sounds for your sessions and gigs.
Even though the landmark instrument designs that inspired the V Collection have survived the test of time and are still in use today, why stop there? Arturia have kept the control panel of each virtual instrument extremely authentic, yet a single click opens a whole new similarly styled panel containing new features and enhancements you've always wished for—and many that will surprise you.
The 17 Software Instruments
With its very raw and dirty character it is easy to create massive drum n' bass stabs to growlin funky bass lines and spaced out drones. The ARP2600 V is a truly versatile sound creation tool with a bite.
The king of electronic organs, the rich sounding B-3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, hard rock and reggae—and pro studios everywhere—for over a half century. Its electromagnetic tonewheel design gave it a beefy quality not found on later transistor organs. Our faithful homage includes a rotary speaker, plus updates like drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.
With its ground breaking design and earth shattering sounds, this massive sounding synth has featured on poles apart recordings from the good times of soul of Stevie Wonder to the electronic tension of the Blade Runner soundtrack. We do highly recommend the CS-80V for pads and string sounds.
Much lighter than a Hammond and more cutting than a Vox, the Farfisa transistor organ helped drive the effervescent sounds of 60s Top 40 hits, and has kept bubbling up across upbeat genres ever since. It also wanted to be a synth when it grew up, which Arturia have aided by adding user-definable waveforms, DAW sync for tremolo/repeat, more envelope control and integral effects.
The Jupiter-8's success, initiated in 1981, took every one by storm. In terms of sonic possibilities, it complemented its competition by bringing something different. The Jupiter-8V is a real workhorse capable of creating very versatile sounds. You could easily make 'fat' or 'Crystal' sounds with it. With the new modulation possibilities and effects within the synthesizer path it goes far beyond the original.
This super synth of the 80's will allow for limitless creation and sonic capabilities. Know for its lush pads, creamy leads and wild effects the Matrix 12 is the king of polyphonic analogue synths.
From the starship funk lead lines of the 70's, to the gangster whine of mid 90's hip-hop, the ever present Minimoog has been making its phat presence felt for over 3 decades. The highly awarded Mini V is now even polyphonic and has extra modulation options making it a Memorymoog emulation as well.
Whether recreating the abstract tonal qualities of the classic electronic soundtracks, or pushing forward the sonic boundaries of today, the Modular V is the synth of choice for sound exploration, anywhere, anytime.
Piano V delivers nine world-class pianos, ranging from 9ft concert grands to studio uprights to unconventional designs. Rather than stacks of samples, they're all based on Arturia's award-winning modelling technology applied to the sound and mechanics—strings, hammers, sound boards, mic positions and more. Finally there's a piano emulation you'll truly love playing.
When a punchy fat sound is demanded the search no further. Whether emanating from the beat boxes of 80's New York or from the electro dub club sound systems of now, the sound of the Prophet V keeps it moving. The Prophet VS brings you a unique crisp digital sound that easily stands on its own, but at the same time is complimentary to the sound of pure analogue synthesizers.
Tom Oberheim's SEM was one of the first self-contained synth modules and was further distinguished by its unique 12db-octave multimode filter. His first polyphonic synth was actually a combination of individual SEMs connected to a digital scanning keyboard which, since each voice was slightly different, gave it a very alive sound. Arturia have recreated an 8-voice version with added modulation matrix, noise, sub-oscillator, arpeggiator and portamento.
The classic sound of the Solina String machine is one that was copied, sampled and imitated but never recreated with the level or realism that is found in Solina V. Lush strings, models of both the MK1 and MK2 ensemble circuits and the famous Vox Humana sound from the 1978 Polymoog keyboard make this a must have.
The tine-based electric pianos of the 60s and 70s featured a rounder sound and longer sustain than the competing Wurlitzers. They've been used by a who's who of keyboardists, especially for jazz, funk and ballads. Arturia have modelled the Stage 73 and Suitcase 73 right down to the tines, pickups and circuitry. They've also included a tube amp model and classic effects for the full experience.
The Synclavier V faithfully recreates and improves on the elite digital synthesizer that powered some of the biggest hits and film soundtracks of the early 80s. Its unique fusion of additive and FM synthesis technologies made for a stunningly diverse and unique universe of cinematic pads and evolving timbres. Arturia partnered with original designer Cameron Jones to faithfully build the only emulation ever attempted.
VOX Continental V
The Vox Continental was the hit-making organ sound of the 60's. The pinnacle of the transistor organs of the 60's and 70's, every aspect of the Vox was created here but we didn't stop there. We also give you the tone shaping of the Jennings J70, full rank drawbars, an added waveform, effects and more.
The reed-based electric piano was brighter and tighter that the Rhodes. Mellow at lower velocities, its voice took on a rougher bark as it was played harder. This made it a favoured electric piano for rock and funk players—and another perfect example of something that Arturia's physical modelling nails that sampling can't. Arturia have added lots of tone-shaping options, guitar amp, rotary speaker and effects boxes.
Analog Lab 2
Analog Lab 2 gives you streamlined tag-based access to 5000+ of the hottest presets from this award-winning V Collection of 17 faithfully modelled legendary classic keyboards—including combinations and effects. Each preset automatically maps the most important sound parameters to your KeyLab or MiniLab for intuitive tweaking and performance control, and you can easily custom map to any controllers via the MIDI Learn feature. You can even save the presets you need for a gig into a playlist to step through during your sets. Analog Lab 2 is also the command centre for all your V Collection keyboards, giving you full editing access to any full instruments you own.
