V Collection 8.1 elevates our virtual instrument experience to new heights.
With updated sound engines, enhanced accessibility features, broader compatibility, and a myriad of brand new presets, this release is a celebration of the ever-evolving creative potential of these instruments - and you’re invited.
Explore microtonal tunings with OB-Xa V, Vocoder V, Emulator II V, Jup-8 V, and Jun-6 V, thanks to new compatibility with ODDSound’s MTS-ESP, a versatile microtuning software utility designed with the help of Aphex Twin.
Individual V Collection instruments (excluding Analog Lab) are now ready for Native Kontrol Standard implementation, ensuring a fluid preset workflow alongside the rest of your virtual instruments and effects.
Upgraded OB-Xa V sound engine
The growl machine has been supercharged with detailed analog voice dispersion, providing not just an earth-shaking sound, but the authentically nuanced imperfections of an ancient analog machine.
Analog Lab V accessibility
We’ve updated our all-in-one keyboard anthology with text-to-speech functionality, providing real-time audio feedback with every tweak and preset change - you can even configure it to respond to your MIDI controller adjustments.
More in-app tutorial updates
For V Collection 8, we upgraded many of our instruments’ in-app tutorials to be even more informative and accessible; this has now been expanded to include every instrument.
MIDI / macro improvements
With your feedback in mind, we’ve made a number of adjustments to V Collection’s workflow and configuration options, to ensure that nothing gets in the way of your creativity.
To mark the release of V Collection 8.1, we've assembled a sound design expedition to the furthest reaches of synthesis.
Unlock 135 expertly-crafted presets from our in-house sound designers and world-renowned audio professionals, spanning analog, digital, and everything in between.
Featuring: Arovane, emptyvessel, Rob Martland, Jean-Michel Blanchet, Lily Jordy, Solidtrax, Ed Ten Eyck, Thomas Koot.
