A Little Bit of HistoryAnalog synthesizers and drum machines have played a crucial role in defining the sound of modern music. Companies such as Moog, ARP, Roland and Yamaha, contributed to this revolution by producing legendary instruments that inspired talented artists and producers since the 1970's. Today's generation of musicians are still seeking for unmatched analog sound quality, as synthesizers are playing a bigger role in music production than ever before.
This is where the V Collection 3.0 offers you the best of both worlds: the accurate analog sound of the legendary hardware instruments, and the advantage of a perfect integration into the digital world for a fraction of the price.
Furthermore, thanks to Arturia's experience in software R&D, it is possible to push the possibilities of the original machines further with the help of exclusive modules integrated in each interface.
Each instrument included in the V Collection 3.0 has its own unique character and shines in a particular style. This guarantees that you always find the right weapon of choice for your production, whether you need groundbreaking basses, funky leads, stellar pads, lush strings, unearthly sound effects or solid beats.
The V Collection 3.0 features nine legendary analog synthesizers, one electric piano and 30 classic drum machines.
10 Software Instruments
Modular VWhether 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.
Mini VFrom 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 three decades. The highly awarded Mini V is now even polyphonic and has extra modulation options making it a Memorymoog emulation as well.
ARP2600 VWith 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.
Prophet VWhen a punchy fat sound is demanded the search no further. Whether emanating from the beat boxes of 80's 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 analog synthesizers. It brings the clear sound of four digital oscillators and a nice creamy warm filter.
CS80 VWith 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.
Jupiter-8 VThe 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 modulation possibilities and effects within the synthesizer path it goes far beyond the original.
Oberheim SEM VThe SEM was one of the world's first self-contained synthesizer modules. Primarily developed by Oberheim as an expander to fatten up the tone of the Minimoog, it soon gained a popularity of its own. It was later featured in high end polyphonic models embedding up to eight SEM voices. Today the SEM models are still highly sought after for their stellar multimode Filter.
Wurlitzer VThe legendary Wurlitzer EP 200A was the high end model of the Wulitzer reed-based piano line. It was introduced in 1972 and produced until 1982.
The Wurlitzer quickly reached immense success among pop and rock bands, where its tone -thicker and rougher than a Rhodes- had a rich presence in the mix.
Spark VintageThe V Collection 3.0 also includes a comprehensive collection of 30 classic drum machines. From the low end punch of the TR-808 to the R&B flavored percussion sounds of the CR-78, this collection delivers the true soul of the finest groove machines -including the producer's best kept secrets- in one single and easy to use interface.
Analog LaboratoryAnalog Laboratory is a powerful software that acts as the control tower of your synth collection. It allows you to quickly select your sound among the 4300 presets and play 200 scenes involving two synthesizers, drum loops and arpeggiation melodies. This is the ideal place to find inspiration for your tracks or to prepare your live setup.
