Arturia CMI V Synthesizer Software Instrument

Return to the early days of sampling with this in-the-box recreation of the CMI system, adding vintage vibe to any track with 600 classic samples.

The Arturia CMI V is a spot-on reincarnation of the first commercially available digital sampling system in music history, the sonic powerhouse behind numerous early MTV-era megahits. Arturia even added new creative features that weren't possible back in the day.

The first commercially available digital sampling system created the sound of countless MTV-era hits and evolved into a full music workstation.

Arturia turbocharged it with state-of-the-art features to make it a centerpiece of your productions. The CMI's signature 8-bit grunge on hits by Depeche Mode, Herbie Hancock, Peter Gabriel, Duran Duran, and Kate Bush - not to mention countless film scores - transports you straight to the '80s. CMI V transports your creativity anywhere you want to take it.

Hear What They Heard
Once musicians experienced the dynamic power of the CMI, they were hooked - if they could afford one. CMI V puts it all in the palm of your hand.

Prime Specimen
CMI V begins by meticulously modeling a full-spec CMI Series IIx, which enthusiasts and seasoned producers consider the one to want.

Modern Superpowers
Much more than nostalgia, CMI V provides everything you need - and then some - to explore the intersection of sampling and digital synthesis for modern production.

The Sound of Digital
More precise than analog. More synth-sounding than software sample libraries. CMI V strikes the perfect balance for EDM, hip-hop, neo-disco, and anything in between.
