History’s finest keyboards at your fingertips

How did we decide which synths and keyboards to recreate? We asked the experts: you. Musicians, producers, songwriters, synth fans. You share our passion for these incredible instruments - who better to ask?

V Collection 8 breathes new life into the most iconic instruments in musical history. Genre-defining hitmakers that have stood the test of time. The most sought-after sounds of all time - as chosen by you.

Awesome analog synths

Electricity harnessed into music. We mapped every circuit and analysed every component to bring you unrivalled analog sound.

Jun-6 V

Jun-6 V channels the pure analog spirit of the Juno series, the DCO classics that brought polyphony to the masses. Its colossal & creamy sound remains awe-inspiring to this day - optimized and enhanced to keep up with modern creative needs.

Vocoder V

A patch-pin modular sensation, the quirky British “silver machine” put a new spin on modular synthesis. New for V Collection, it has been reborn with expanded modulations, powerful effects, an updated sequencer, with the ability to group pins for total control.

OB-Xa V

The OB-Xa V brings the immense analog power of the ‘Jump’ synth from the ‘80s charts into the modern music-making era. Faithful to the sound of the original and supercharged with new features, OB-Xa V will take you for a wild sonic ride.

Jup-8 V

Fat, yet airy and crystal clear, this classic polysynth was adored by the likes of Prince, Duran Duran, Moby, and Depeche Mode. We’ve brought extra love by adding complex LFO combinations, modulatable dynamic effects, and an advanced step sequencer.

Synthi V

A patch-pin modular sensation, the quirky British “silver machine” put a new spin on modular synthesis. New for V Collection, it has been reborn with expanded modulations, powerful effects, an updated sequencer, with the ability to group pins for total control.

Buchla Easel V

Don Buchla’s leftfield analog synth from 1973, the Music Easel was perfect for exploring alternative sound design, creating ambient, widescreen textures, and unfamiliar sequences. Arturia’s reimagining also features “Gravity”, a physics-based synth.

Mini V

Probably the most famous synth in history, this monosynth is legendary for its fat, warm basses and leads. We partnered with Bob Moog himself to bring this legend to a new generation of musicians, with new features that were impossible in the 70s.

Matrix-12 V

An analog polysynth legend, the Matrix-12 featured the big brassy Oberheim ® sound, powered by unparalleled matrix modulation and 15-mode filters. We’ve expanded it with even more mod sources and a 27 x 47 matrix.

Prophet V

Combining the analog Prophet 5 with the digital Prophet VS, this reimagined synth gives you the iconic poly-subtractive synth sound that defined the 70s and 80s. We’ve even added a hybrid mode to combine the best of both instruments.

CS-80 V

Two synths in one, the original was famous for rich complex sonic textures. Toto, Vangelis, ELO, and Stevie Wonder, and now it’s your turn. Our update features modulation, multi-timbral voicing, an arpeggiator, effects and preset morphing.

SEM V

The sound designer’s secret weapon, our reborn Tom Oberheim classic brings that analog vital tone to your setup. We’ve also updated it with 8 voices of unique polyphony, as well as a new modulation matrix, noise, sub-oscillator, arpeggiator and portamento.

ARP 2600 V

From clear bright leads to the voice of R2D2. Its semi-modular design featured connections you could override with patch cords, great for learning and exploring synthesis. Our version has tons of enhancements: polyphony, tracking generator modules, a sequencer, and effects.

Modular V

The Modular system started the entire electronic music revolution. We collaborated with Bob Moog to update this behemoth with programmable presets, polyphony, nine VCOs, three VCFs and rare original modules like the Bode 1620 frequency shifter.

Powerful digital instruments

Breakthroughs of binary and code from the pioneering days of digital technology, reborn, remastered, and yours to explore.

Emulator II V

Emulator II V is based on the multitimbral sampling icon favored by everyone from Depeche Mode to Trent Reznor. It’s the perfect dusty lo-fi sampling toolkit, combining the old-school digital grit that you love with the cutting-edge creative flexibility that you need.

CZ V

The budget synth that became a legend in its own right. The instrument that brought the digital synth revolution to the masses with its razor sharp phase distortion sound. Now beefed up as software, with added modulations and awesome effects!

DX7 V

If you’ve ever listened to the radio, watched a film, or owned any 80s records, you’ll have heard the DX-7. We simplified the way you program it, and expanded it with a mod matrix, custom envelopes, waveforms, a 2nd LFO, effects, and more.

Synclavier V

We partnered with original designer Cameron Jones to faithfully rebuild his brainchild synth in software. The elite digital synthesizer that powered some of the biggest hits and film soundtracks of the early ‘80s is now yours to control, with expanded features and resynthesis.

CMI V

The mother of all samplers, and a groundbreaking additive synth, the Fairlight original redefined pop music. Our recreation gives you 10 multitimbral, polyphonic slots to design your sound, real-time waveform shaping, effects, sequencer, and even a brand new “Spectral” synth.

Famous pianos, organs and string machine

Physical works of art, honed from steel, wood, reeds, motors, and magnetic tape, all recreated as software for your pleasure.

Stage-73 V

A legend of the stage and studio, this software instrument is modelled on the legendary Fender Rhodes. We recreated the tone of both Stage and Suitcase models right down to the tines, pickups and circuitry. We also included a tube amp model and classic effects, too.

Mellotron V

The original instrument redefined what keyboard players could do, unlocking the doors to orchestral and choral sounds at the touch of a key. Our reborn Mellotron features all original tapes, as well as the ability to play your own samples with authentic tape emulation.

B-3 V

The king of electronic organs, the rich sounding B-3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, hard rock and reggae for over a half century. Our faithful homage includes a rotary speaker, as well as drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.

Piano V

A collection of world-class pianos and quirky, rare instruments brought to life through physical modelling. We measured the precise tonal response of every component, so you can enjoy and personalize living, breathing pianos, rendered in software. No samples here!

Solina V

An early proto-synth, organ hybrid, the Solina created lush string and orchestral sounds electronically. Our revamped version gives you access to both mono and stereo versions, new effects, custom options, and new voices inspired by the Polymoog!

Clavinet V

One of the most loved, influential electric keyboards of all time, this funky, energetic tone is now available in a physically modelled software instrument, complete with customizable setup, and classic amp and effects combos.

Farfisa V

A driven transistor organ was the backbone of any 60s hits, and it has been bubbling away in upbeat genres ever since. We added some cool synth functionality to this classic too, like user-definable waveforms, trem sync, envelopes and effects.

Wurli V

Bright and tight, the original instrument wash much-loved by funk and rock players for its punch and clarity. Our recreation is a perfect physical model, remade in software. We’ve added lots of tone-shaping options, guitar amp, rotary speaker and effects boxes.

VOX Continental V

The transistor drawbar organ was quickly adopted by the “British Invasion” and West Coast hit factories. Our reimagining also includes the later Jennings J70 engine alternative, and adds full drawbars, extra waveforms, rotary cabinet, and effects.

Sprinkle some color, shape, and texture into the process. From pristine digital reverb to analog phaser, push your sound further outside the box or give it a final touch-up before dropping it into the mix.

More expression

V Collection 8’s instruments have been tweaked to respond to every note played, every nuance of your style, and every dynamic shift. Take full expressive control of your performance or composition.

How did we do it?

Behind every V Collection instrument, there’s a unique story.

It’s taken decades of painstaking research, analysis, modelling, and testing to get here, but now you can enjoy the fruits of our labor. We modeled every component of each instrument to create a living, breathing virtual version in your computer. The peculiarities and nuances of circuitry, crosstalk and noise, the resonant properties of wood and metal; we cracked the code.

We do this using two state-of-the-art modeling technologies, exclusive to Arturia.

The exclusive analog modeling technology that makes our virtual instrument emulations indistinguishable from the originals. By accurately mimicking the characteristics of analog oscillators, filters, and soft clipping, we can provide astonishing component-accurate detail and authentic analog charm in equal measure.

State-of-the-art physical modeling designed to provide real material depth to our acoustic and electro-acoustic virtual instruments. With advanced mathematical algorithms, our engineers recreate every aspect of the original instruments, down to the finest vibrations - for a response that sounds and feels as tangible as the real thing.

Preset heaven

Every instrument in V Collection 8 features the same intelligent preset browser. Instantly find the perfect sound, or experiment with something new. Search by name, style, or browse categories; add sounds to your favorites for instant recall; add comments and set up your own playlists; finding your sound has never been this easy.

Want to change it up? Each instrument gives you access to the Arturia Sound Store, a huge collection of free and premium Sound Banks that’s updated every month. From genre-themed packs to artist tribute releases, the Sound Store has all the inspiration you’ll ever need on tap.
