Emulates 1980s synthesizers, vocoder and digital sampler, as well as updates to existing plugins.
Arturia has announced the release of a new version of the collection of virtual instruments Arturia V Collection 8. The updated collection offers four brand new instruments, two updates to existing plugins and other innovations.
The set consists of 28 virtual instruments: analog and digital synthesizers, organs, acoustic and electronic pianos, string synthesizers and other instruments. Arturia V Collection 8 offers four new instruments: Jun-6 V, Emulator II V, Vocoder V and OB-Xa V.
The developers have also updated the previously released Jup-8 synthesizer and Stage-73 electric piano. All plugins in the kit are based on the company’s patented physics-based sound modeling technology.
The updated Arturia V Collection 8 also includes two modified instruments – the Jup-8 V4 synthesizer and the Stage-73 V2 electric piano. The first got a new modulation engine and a revised synthesis engine, the second got a redesigned physical modeling model for more accurate repetition of the sound of electronic keyboards.
In addition, the collection received a new version of the plug-in Arturia Analog Lab V. The plug-in consists of thousands of presets for virtual instruments as part of V Collection 8. Among the new features is the emergence of the PatchWorks section, which consists of 700 completely new curated patches from famous musicians, sound designers and producers. … The patches combine vintage disco bass lines, vibrant atmospheric soundtrack spaces, and other treatments.
Analog Lab V provides access to tight integration with MIDI controllers. Thanks to the plugin, users can flexibly configure how virtual instruments work with any controllers thanks to the mapping functions and create macros to control each plugin in the collection.
Arturia Jun-6 V – A virtual copy of the Roland Juno-60 synthesizer. The polyphonic instrument offers a creamy, rich sound that’s great for synth-pop, synthwave and other vintage styles of music.
Arturia Emulator II V – A copy of the digital sampler E-Mu Emulator II. A lo-fi sampler that combines digital audio sharpness with the versatility of modern hardware.
Arturia Vocoder V – A virtual copy of the Moog Vocoder released in the 1970s. Voice conversion tool. Unlike conventional vocoders, Vocoder V combines operator and modulator – synthesizer and voice analyzer – to create one powerful 16-channel instrument with its own sampler and synth engine.
Arturia OB-Xa V – Software emulation of the Oberheim OB-Xa polyphonic synthesizer, previously released as a separate plug-in. The instrument is great for punchy bass, chic spatial pads, and luscious electronic horns. Ideal for 1980s music.
