ARTURIA announces the release of the Modular V 2.0
Grenoble, FRANCE – Summer NAMM Show, Nashville, TN, USA – July 23, 2004

Arturia announces the version 2.0 of its multi-award winner Modular V. This faithful reproduction of the legendary Bob Moog's modular systems comes back with major improvements.
Among the features added in the upgrade are:
New ergonomics:
  • One unique scrollable view to overlook the entire synth.
  • Some of the modules are now interchangeable, allowing to configure - to a certain extent - the Modular the desired way.
New audio possibilities:
  • Improvements on the oscillators (new free running), on the filters (better response to modulations), on the envelopes (faster and even closer to true analogical behaviour).
  • New Unison mode
  • New Audio-In possibilities
  • The Soft-clipping emulation is now done on each mixer and not systematically on all of them, which saves on CPU load.
New modules:
  • 1630 Bode Frequency Shifter. Developed under license by Harold Bode in 1964, it is extremely rare (a dozen Worldwide).
  • 928 Sample and hold is also very rare. Originally assembled in a separate cabinet, it was adapted on the last modular series, in the late 70’s.
  • 912 Envelope follower (or Schmit Trigger). One of the most popular modules on the modular systems, it was often added to original configuration to create complex modulation through the use of an output signal.
  • 12 stage phaser. The 12 Stage Phaser was very well known, and originally conceived as an external rack to the Modular systems.
  • Formant Filter. A new module developed by Arturia, which did not exist on the original systems. It allows the filtering of sounds according to the formants a, e, i, o, u.
  • Ring Modulator. Also a new module developed by Arturia, it creates very metallic sounds.
Platforms :
  • Windows: Windows 98 SE/ ME / 2000 / XP
  • Mac OS X: Mac OS X.2 or higher
