I first heard about Arturia when reading an interview with Joe Goddard from Hot Chip. I had always marvelled at the rich synth sounds on their first couple of records, and assumed (naively) that they used a lot of analog synths. Scouring ithe net I came across this interview where Joe mentioned that they had used the Arturia Modular V emulator almost exclusively on some of my favourite tracks - which meant that maybe I too could get some of those sounds without having to spend thousands on hardware. Investigating that one synth then led me to all of Arturia's products, which are uniformly well-designed, intuitive and fun to use.

"The Mellotron V sounds very authentic! The Synthi V is a very interesting synth and it make a lot of fun with playing around."
Synth Anatomy
"The Synthi provides a fresh look at that with its semi-modular matrix setup. The TAE modelling algorithm they use really makes the quirkiness of the Synthi come out, to me. (...) The sounds I was creating with just a few clicks were really inspiring to me. The CZ-V is a really cool addition. (...) I’ve never used one before, but I loved this software. The Mellotron is a really cool element in this software (...) That’s pretty exciting!"

"The Jupiter-8V maintains the standard we have come to expect from Arturia. it's a beautifully warm and expressive synth that's equally at home in pop tunes or experimental sound design. The overhaul of the presets management system and the addition of the user-friendly sequencer and effects make the instrument immediately accessible to beginners as well as experienced users, which hasn't always been the case with these complex synths."

"Arturia has done the original Jupiter-8 justice. Not only has the company captured the original instrument's essence and character, but have upped the ante by adding new and creative touches that expand the reach of its sound. As far as I'm concerned, this is not only the strongest analog emulation on the market, but is quite possibly the best soft synth I have yet encountered. Once hooked up with a good control surface, this could be the only virtual analog you'll ever need - and it will definitely be my go-to instrument of choice in the future."

If you're looking for a top-quality software synth that really does sound like the analog hardware it claims to emulate, look no further than Arturia's Modular V. This powerful tool is good enough for Bob Moog, and I'll wager it's good enough for you, too."

"In terms of sound quality, the CS-80V is absolutely divine. It's a first-rate-analog-style synthesizer with a wealth of detuning and modulation possibilities that allow you to cook up truly retro sounds-if that's what you're looking for. On the other hand, thanks to the sequencer, stereo delay and multitimbral aspects of the instrument, the CS-80V can sound as up-to-date as your programming chops will allow. The filters have plenty of bite - so much so that you have to watch for clipping. And I particularly like the implementation of the ring modulator, suboscillator and Touch Response features, which enable you to add weird little subtleties to a sound."

"The Modular V software is an absolute bargain piece of software, especially in light of the ultra-high prices of the real hardware [...]. Its great audio quality, flexible patching and interesting performance options are bringing a new level to audio."

"Endorsed by Bob Moog himself, Modular V probably comes as close as any software to re-creating complex analog synthesizer hardware, and it does it on a large scale. It runs standalone or as a plug-in for a variety of formats."
Electronic Musician
"Aesthetics and programming considerations aside, there's no doubt that the CS-80V captures the classic analogue sound of the original instrument. The additional features Arturia has added stands the virtual instrument well above the original hardware version. Arturia has taken all the good bits, enhanced them, and created a classy, high-quality synth with great appeal to those with an interest in analogue synthesizers."

"The MiniMg is one of the most desirable and sought-after classic synths [...] the Mini V largely impressed us. It sounds great (if not quite Mg-great), has an excellent sound library and, once you learn what the badly-labelled knobs on the portly interface do, is easy and satisfying to program."

[...] If you really enjoy twisting the knobs and getting your virtual hands "dirty", I very highly recommend the Mini V. You at least owe it to yourself to download the demo version and see if you get those same chills up your spine that I got when I first got my hands on it. If you crave that classic Mg sound, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Har"

"Arturia turns a classic synthesizer into a superb piece of software [...] This is a great product that will appeal to fans of the original ARP 2600.

Mac Format
"A few obvious advantages of the 2600 V over the original hardware unit cannot be overstated.[...] For us it has become an immediate favourite -- a very worthy addition to anyone's virtual synth collection. "
Music Connection
"So how closely does the 2600 V reproduce the flavour of the original? [...] So while I can't attest to how truly authentic at waveform level Arturia's True Analog Emulation methodology is, I can definitely say that the 2600 V does seem to very successfully capture much of that specific Arp "flavour" in terms of oscillator and filter "punchiness [...] If you're fairly synth-savvy, or if you already know your way around the original Arp 2600, then with its flexible semi-modular approach as well a new extended modulation routings, the 2600 is recommended for a wide array of classic analog sounds both as an instrument and as source of wild sound effects."
Grooves Magazine
"At a glance at the back of any Arturia box reveals that these developers are serious. The stellar line-up of electronic musicians whose photos appear on the cartons is like a synthesist hall of fame, and they're not just there to endorse the instruments - they're also responsible for the presets. [...] Some of the best patches come from Arturia themselves. Not for the first time, Jean-Michel Blanchet proves himself to be one of the best programmers in the business with his tumbling sequences, blistering leads and smooth pads. [...] if you've ever coveted the original ARP 2600, picking this up is a no-brain. If you've never heard of the original, you still might find the 2600 V to be an excellent way to ease into modular synthesis. It's another winner from Arturia."

"Arturia's 2600 V is the company's best software synth to date. It's powerful, it's flexible, and the bugs are few and far between. While it does not sound precisely like an ARP 2600, it offers much more than the original. Given the cost of buying a vintage ARP 2600 and 1601 Sequencer, 2600 V has to be worth serious consideration."

"France's Arturia earned acclaim for its emulations of the MiniMg, Mg Modular and yamha CS-80, si it's not surprise their 2600 V is stunning as well.

Future Music
"Thanks to the Arturia 2600 V and Way our Ware TimewARP2600 virtual synths, not only is the 2600 sound available again in an inexpensive and easy-to-find package, but the Arturia version features a recreation of the 1601 sequencer. [...] As an ARP 2600 reproduction, Arturia's 2600 V comes tantalizingly close. [...] as a modular synth with a built-in analog sequencer, the 2600 V positively rocks! It's got that definitive Arturian warmth with oodles of modulation options and is perfect complement to a rig that already has a few more traditional virtual synths. "
Keyboard
"The system requirements are moderate by current standards and the results you get from the 2600 V are fantastic. Somehow it just sounds more authentic, more instantly gratifying than many other virtual synths. Given the scarcity of the real thing, this is as close as most of us will ever need to get to owning a real ARP2600."
Music Tech Magazine
"I'll just summarize by saying that for both novices and experienced users alike, Arturia's revamping of ARP's classic synth looks and sounds incredible; it is stable and efficient; and it shouldn't get boring for a very long time - if ever."

"The ARP 2600 sounds awesome -even if you don't explore outside of the presets. It does tax your processor though, and quite heavily if you've got an ancient computer (two years or older). While the ARP 2600 may be a retro concept, Arturia's emulation sounds as futuristic as the original did when it came out. "
XLR8R
"There have already been numerous soft synths purporting to emulate the Prophet 5, and I have not been impressed by any of them. Arturia have created something closer to the original than any of these, and I am confident that Prophet V will continue to improve. Furthermore, by creating this strange marriage of the Prophet 5 with one of my all-time favourite synthesizers, the Prophet VS, the company have shown the imagination needed to take their offering way beyond those of their competition."
Sound On Sound
"Arturia has done a frighteningly good job of capturing the beloved gritty characteristics of this American-made classic. Being the first polyphonic analog synth, the Prophet 5's sound was all over records from '80s artists like Talking Heads, INXS, and Gary Numan, and as such, the presets do well to cover the sounds used in those days. However, Arturia includes emulation of the Prophet VS and a hybrid mode, meaning this synth goes far beyond churning out throwback fare. Certainly a great all-around plug-in that especially excels with leads and percussive sounds."
XLR8R
"With the audio quality from soft synths such as Arturia's Modular V being so good, is there any longer a need to worry about replacing hardware with software?"
Sound On Sound
"Arturia has done it right. They've teamed up with Bob Moog, researched how to best emulate the sometimes quirky nature of analogue circuits via TAE, and had talented artists and sound designers create some great patches."

"Overall, Arturia Prophet V replicates the sound and feel of the Prophet 5 very well, while adding a number of features that modern synth users will want. With the inclusion of the VS model and Hybrid mode, Prophet V offers plenty of bang for your buck."
Electronic Musician
"This is truly a no-compromise Mg, no ifs, ands or buts. It's also an absolutely rock solid application. All of our little complaints aside, the boys at Arturia have achieved a milestone here. This simply doesn't sound like software!"
Computer Music
"Arturia bring an unobtainable synth to the masses. It's powerful, easy to use and totally addictive. (Platinum Award)"
Future Music
"A stunningly realistic recreation of the legendary MiniMg synth. Every electronic musician should have one!"
Mac Format
"Arturia's software version of the famed 2600 is exactly what one should expect out of an emulation piece: It has both the coveted sound of the original and the modern extras that users don't want to live without."
Remix
"The MiniMg is one of the most desirable and sought-after classic synths [...] the Mini V largely impressed us. It sounds great (if not quite Mg-great), has an excellent sound library and, once you learn what the badly-labelled knobs on the portly interface do, is easy and satisfying to program."
Computer Music
"At a glance at the back of any Arturia box reveals that these developers are serious. The stellar line-up of electronic musicians whose photos appear on the cartons is like a synthesist hall of fame, and they're not just there to endorse the instruments - they're also responsible for the presets. [...] Some of the best patches come from Arturia themselves. Not for the first time, Jean-Michel Blanchet proves himself to be one of the best programmers in the business with his tumbling sequences, blistering leads and smooth pads. [...] if you've ever coveted the original ARP 2600, picking this up is a no-brain. If you've never heard of the original, you still might find the 2600 V to be an excellent way to ease into modular synthesis. It's another winner from Arturia."
Computer Music
"Arturia's 2600 V is the company's best software synth to date. It's powerful, it's flexible, and the bugs are few and far between. While it does not sound precisely like an ARP 2600, it offers much more than the original. Given the cost of buying a vintage ARP 2600 and 1601 Sequencer, 2600 V has to be worth serious consideration."
Sound On Sound
"Prophet V is easy to load and learn, it sounds excellent and looks stunning, it is relatively CPU friendly and it carries a sweet price tag (especially versus the hardware). If you want to go deep into the heart of both traditional analog and vector synthesis without going deep into your pocket, look directly at Prophet V."
Remix
"The system requirements are moderate by current standards and the results you get from the 2600 V are fantastic. Somehow it just sounds more authentic, more instantly gratifying than many other virtual synths. Given the scarcity of the real thing, this is as close as most of us will ever need to get to owning a real ARP2600."

"Prophet V is a worthy addition to the roster of Arturia soft synths. It authentically imitates the originals while going beyond their limitations with up to 32 voice polyphony, decent chorus/delay effects and the endless potential of hybridising Prophet 5 and Prophet VS sounds."

"France's Arturia continues it's string of hits with the Prophet V. With Arturia's devotion to quality, excellent user interfaces and bringing this all to the musician at an extremely low cost, other virtual synth makers are now all looking up at the new high water mark."
Futuremusic.Inc
"Prophet V belongs to a new generation of virtual instruments that take full advantage of today's processing prowess to deliver a sound that even the most synth obsessed would be hard-pressed to tell from the originals. While I remain a fan of analog hardware, this is one soft synth that will definitely be finding its way onto my own tracks."
Create Digital Music
"A savvy software recreation of Sequential Circuits' groundbreaking Prophet 5, and the equally influential wavetable synth Prophet VS, Arturia's V is literally two synths in one, a mightily flexible instrument that takes both software instrument design and sonics to new levels. The must-have soft synth of 2006. - Future Music Ace Awards 2007 - "
Future Music US
"Arturia, a company that made a name for itself with Modular V and CS-80V, is the first company to produce an accurately detailed MiniMg emulation that runs native, without the need for additional hardware."
Electronic Musician
"So just how close has Arturia got to emulating such a classic monster? I think they've done a superb job with just the right balance between faithful re-creation and modern elaboration. [...] The CS-80V is a phenomenal machine."

"It's undeniable that the V is the best basic MiniMg emulator ever"
