Discover examples of effects chains using only presets from FX Collection 5’s library:

Studio mixing Tools:

Enhance your sound

Vocals


The mid-side stereo options let you create silky smooth vocal doubling effects that don't sound terrible when you convert them to mono!

Drums


The classic smiley-face EQ - boosted lows, delicate mids, and accented highs ensure that your drums lay the foundations and cut through the mix simultaneously.

Keys


Grand piano up close and personal. Subtle glue and proximity added to this grand piano track using gentle Single Mode

Guitars


By subtly focusing on the mids, this bluesy electric guitar stem becomes more clear while preserving its roomy ambience.

Synth


A large but subtle chorus giving space to the chords.

Mix & master


Very clean use of the Tube Culture here. The Bias meter is set to a very small value to only add subtle harmonics from the pentode.

Creative Production Tools:

Reshape your sound

Vocals


So you don't have a Fuzzybox. No to worry, you got a Dist OPAMP-21 ! Use it in parallel to add a fuzz effect to voices.

Drums


Input is a simple clean break beat. Motions turn it upside down and provoke a lot of synced variations.

Keys


Smooth piano sample gets transformed by flutter, noise and mechanical noise - stemming from the first preset "Lo-Fi Quiver"

Guitars


Just adding a bit of crunch to the dynamic peaks of the guitar track.

Synth


Make your synth slightly more agressive with the Triode mode. Add harshness to the high end with the presence switch.

Mix & master


Help your drums to sound more Lo-Fi with a tape machine effect.

True Analog Emulation

TAE® "True Analog Emulation" ist eine exklusive Technologie von Arturia, welche die definierenden Klangqualitäten von analogen Synthesizern exakt reproduziert. Sie emuliert die Eigenschaften von analogen Oszillatoren in einer erstaunlichen Detailreue, Transparenz und Klarheit, sowie das spezifische Verhalten von Analog-Filtern, die jedem klassischen Instrument einen einzigartigen Soundcharakter verleihen. Soft-Clipping fügt dann nochmals mehr Punch und Präsenz hinzu.

Physical Modeling

Nicht alle legendären Keyboards sind auf elektronischen Schaltungen und analogen Komponenten aufgebaut. Um die unglaublichen akustischen und elektroakustischen Instrumente in der V Collection zu reproduzieren, verwendet Arturia die topmoderne Physical Modeling-Technologie. Mittels Analyse, wie jedes Instrument seinen eigenen einzigartigen Sound erzeugt, nutzen unsere Entwickler fortschrittliche mathematische Algorithmen, die jeden klanglichen Aspekt des Originals berücksichtigen und detailgetreu wiedergeben.
