Quick Start

This page will guide you through the few steps to get started with your product.

1. Download & install the Arturia Software Center (ASC)

The Arturia Software Center (aka ASC) lets you activate, install and update your Arturia virtual instruments on your computers.

It will let you access the software you own as well as demos of the other titles in the Arturia catalog.

2. Log into the Arturia Software Center

Enter the same email address and password as for your My Arturia account.
You will then be able to find your Product License on the main panel.

If you don’t have a My Arturia account, click on create account and follow the process to create one.

If you're using an offline computer, please follow the process described in this article

If you have purchased your software license on the Arturia website, it has been automatically registered into your account. Otherwise click on the button “Register a new product” on top of the main window.
