'90s Revival - The new old school

Take V Collection on a journey to the decade of cassettes, cable TV, and cultural revolution.

To come along the release of the V Collection 8.2 update, we’ve designed a selection of dynamite presets covering the essential sounds of the ‘90s, from LA hip hop to Chicago house to UK rave culture. Treat your library to glossy piano stabs, whistling analog leads, quacking basslines, and beyond.

[...]The V Collection has been an incredible tool to have in my laptop. The amazing sound quality and the enormous amount of inspiring presets means it is always one of the first instruments I launch when starting a new project.

The V Collection is the best emulation of the real gear I have found to date. Using it is an absolute pleasure, as every knob & button is just where you would expect it to be in real life.

Arturia's V Collection has always been a go-to palette for many various colours of sound, the new additions are a welcome treat and offer some gorgeous new, addictive tones.

I value the V Collection for the way it puts rich, characterful sounds within easy reach. The Jun-6 V is a great addition: the interface is simple with a few smart touches, and the sound is great.

Ultimately, V Collection 8 is a remarkable collection and, at the current price of around £19 per instrument, it’s stunning value.

Synth & Software

I can’t think of a more bountiful collection of virtual instruments than Arturia’s V Collection 8 – at least not until V Collection 9.

Computer Music

Overall, V Collection 8 clearly adds some gems and we really like Jun-6 V and Vocoder V. It's also great to see their Jupiter 8 getting a full on rework. But for us what makes the new version a success is that the overall user experience is slicker than before.

Ask Audio

This collection is absolutely fantastic and not to be missed. It’s a fraction of the price point that you’ll see many competitors charging. It sounds great, takes up a wonderfully reasonable footprint on your SSD, and the instruments are stable and reliable.
