Jun-6 V channels the pure analog spirit of the Juno series, the DCO classics that brought polyphony to the masses. Its colossal and creamy sound remains awe-inspiring to this day, optimized and enhanced in V Collection to keep up with modern creative needs.
Vocoder V takes an iconic 16-band vocoder and retrofits it with advanced synth, sampler and modulation capabilities. Venture beyond the classic robot voice with a sound that truly speaks for itself.
OB-Xa V brings the immense analog power of the 'Jump' synth from the 80s charts into the modern music-making era. Faithful to the sound of the original and supercharged with new features, OB-Xa V will take you for a wild sonic ride.
Fat, yet airy and crystal clear, this classic polysynth was adored by the likes of Prince, Duran Duran, Moby and Depeche Mode. Arturia brought extra love by adding complex LFO combinations, modulatable dynamic effects and an advanced step sequencer.
A patch-pin modular sensation, the quirky British 'silver machine' put a new spin on modular synthesis. It has been reborn in V Collection with expanded modulations, powerful effects, an updated sequencer and the ability to group patch pins for total control.
Buchla Easel V
Don Buchla's leftfield analog synth from 1973, the Music Easel was perfect for exploring alternative sound design, creating ambient, widescreen textures and unfamiliar sequences. Arturia's reimagining also features 'Gravity,' a physics-based synth.
Probably the most famous synth in history, this monosynth is legendary for its fat, warm basses and leads. Arturia partnered with Bob Moog himself to bring this legend to a new generation of musicians with new features that were impossible in the 70s.
An analog polysynth legend, Matrix-12 featured the big, brassy Oberheim sound powered by an unparalleled matrix modulation and 15-mode filters. Arturia expanded it with even more mod sources and a 27×47 matrix.
Combining the analog Prophet 5 with the digital Prophet VS, this reimagined synth gives you the iconic polyphonic subtractive synth sound that defined the 70s and 80s. Arturia even added a hybrid mode to combine the best of both instruments.
Two synths in one, the original was famous for rich complex sonic textures. Toto, Vangelis, ELO and Stevie Wonder used one, and now it's your turn. Arturia's update features modulation, multi-timbral voicing, an arpeggiator, effects and preset morphing.
The sound designer's secret weapon, this reborn Tom Oberheim classic brings that analog vital tone to your setup. Arturia also updated it with 8 voices of unique polyphony as well as a new modulation matrix, noise, sub-oscillator, arpeggiator and portamento.
ARP 2600 V
From clear, bright leads to the voice of R2-D2, this synth's semi-modular design featured connections you could override with patch cords, great for learning and exploring synthesis. Arturia's version has tons of enhancements: polyphony, tracking generator modules, a sequencer and effects.
This modular system started the entire electronic music revolution. Arturia collaborated with Bob Moog to update this behemoth with programmable presets, polyphony, nine VCOs, three VCFs and rare original modules like the Bode 1620 frequency shifter.
Emulator II V
Emulator II V is based on the multitimbral sampling icon favored by everyone from Depeche Mode to Trent Reznor. It's the perfect dusty lo-fi sampling toolkit, combining the old-school digital grit that you love with the cutting-edge creative flexibility that you need.
The budget synth that became a legend in its own right, the instrument that brought the digital synth revolution to the masses with its razor sharp phase distortion sound, now beefed up as software with added modulations and awesome effects.
If you've ever listened to the radio, watched a film or owned any 80s records, you'll have heard a DX-7. Arturia has simplified the way you program it and expanded it with a mod matrix, custom envelopes, waveforms, a second LFO, effects and more.
Arturia partnered with original designer Cameron Jones to faithfully rebuild his brainchild synth in software. The elite digital synthesizer that powered some of the biggest hits and film soundtracks of the early 80s is now yours to control with expanded features and resynthesis.
The mother of all samplers and a groundbreaking additive synth, the Fairlight original redefined pop music. Arturia's recreation gives you 10 multitimbral, polyphonic slots to design your sound, realtime waveform shaping, effects, sequencer and even a brand new 'Spectral' synth.
A legend of the stage and studio, this software instrument is modeled on the legendary Fender Rhodes. Arturia recreated the tone of both stage and suitcase models right down to the tines, pickups and circuitry and included a tube amp model and classic effects, too.
The original instrument redefined what keyboard players could do, unlocking the doors to orchestral and choral sounds at the touch of a key. Arturia's reborn Mellotron features all the original tapes as well as the ability to play your own samples with authentic tape emulation.
The king of electronic organs, the rich sounding B-3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, hard rock and reggae for over a half century. Arturia's faithful homage includes a rotary speaker as well as drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.
A collection of world-class pianos and quirky, rare instruments are brought to life through physical modeling. Arturia measured the precise tonal response of every component so you can enjoy and personalize living, breathing pianos, rendered in software. No samples here!
An early proto-synth/organ hybrid, Solina created lush string and orchestral sounds electronically. Arturia's revamped version gives you access to both mono and stereo versions, new effects, custom options and new voices inspired by Polymoog.
One of the most loved and most influential electric keyboards of all time, this funky, energetic tone is now available in a physically modeled software instrument, complete with customizable setup and classic amp and effects combos.
A driven transistor organ was the backbone of many 60s hits and it has been bubbling away in upbeat genres ever since. Arturia added some cool synth functionality to this classic, too, like user-definable waveforms, tremolo sync, envelopes and effects.
Bright and tight, the original instrument wash much loved by funk and rock players for its punch and clarity. Arturia's recreation is a perfect physical model remade in software with lots of added tone-shaping options, a guitar amp, a rotary speaker and effects boxes.
Vox Continental V
The transistor drawbar organ was quickly adopted by the British invasion and West Coast hit factories. Arturia's reimagining also includes the later Jennings J70 engine alternative and adds full drawbars, extra waveforms, a rotary cabinet simulation and effects.
