Arturia has introduced V Collection 6. This new update to their classic keyboard instruments collection adds a Fairlight CMI, Buchla Easel, Yamaha DX7 and Hohner Clavinet. V Collection 6 not only includes new instruments, but features major updates to the other included instruments. A spokesperson told us, "Bringing together over 100 years of landmark keyboard instruments in one software package, the sounds behind every hit, every genre, and every musical movement are now at your fingertips. Painstakingly recreated in beautiful detail, every single instrument in V Collection 6 will blow you away.
Here's the details in Arturia's own words...
Known 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.
Buchla Easel V
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 music where no one has gone before.
The Yamaha DX-7 needs no introduction, and its legacy is felt in charts around the world to this day. 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.
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.
