Description: A huge set of virtual instruments from Arturia:
Keyboards & Piano :
The ARP 2600 is a truly versatile sound creation tool that still takes its place in modern music. With a unique combination of semi-modular architecture and associated routing, the instrument became one of the most versatile synthesizers of the 1970s.
Buchla Easel is the reincarnation of the iconic instrument that helped define the experimental modular synthesis of the West Coast movement in the early 70s. Our enhancements give the instrument significant enhanced capabilities for sound design and avant-garde music.
CMI is the reincarnation of the first commercially available digital separator system in music history, the sonic powerhouse behind many of the early mega hits of the MTV era. We even went the extra mile and added new creative possibilities that weren’t available in those days.
CS-80 – The virtual model can do everything that the original could do, but in addition it has a modulation matrix and a multi-layer Multi mode, which significantly expands the potential of the instrument. As in all virtual instruments of Arturia, this model works with “pure” oscillators (no aliasing), that is, they do not have an internal “reflection” of frequencies from the upper limit of the range, leading to the appearance of parasitic sound tones.
CZ – Models the Casio CZ-101 and CZ-1000, two iconic synths behind many 80s pop hits. It adds a ton of new features that make it a tool for ages
DX7 – In 1983, DX7 changed the world of music. Today the DX7 V gives you the option to change it again.
Nothing says 80s better than the DX7 sound. Our authentic synthesizer gives you all the same FM technology and sounds that an instrument that has taken a place in the history of keyboards and modern music provided.
Jup-8 – The Roland Jupiter 8 synthesizer is perhaps the least intricate. Immediately after appearing on the music market in the early 80s, it instantly gained worldwide recognition and, despite its age, is still popular today.
Matrix-12 – Times are changing, and now all the capabilities of the original instrument have been transferred by Arturia engineers to the virtual Matrix-12 V. And, according to the already established tradition, some additional functions have been added to them, which were not in the original.
Mini – the instrument is an “extended”, as is customary at Arturia, a copy of the well-known Minimoog D.
Modular – This huge modular system showed that electronics can be musical, which is why it is the catalyst for every synthesizer we see today. We have revived the uplifting modular synthesizer that has dominated the music world since the 1960s.
OB-Xa – Recreates exactly the juicy sound of the Oberheim OB-Xa. An instrument that has long been lacking in the collection of the French company. The synthesizer is completely ready to create punchy bass, chic spatial pads and lush parts of electronic winds. The company notes that the OB-Xa V has been enhanced with a number of features that were not present in the original. So the synthesizer received the Stereo Spread function, built-in arpeggiator and more LFOs.
Pigments – A very powerful wavetable virtual analog synthesizer – this is Pigments and will change the way you create music. Turning the spark of imagination into sound is the most important, exciting part of making music. Pigments makes this process natural, intuitive and vibrant.
Prophet – The Prophet V virtual synthesizer contains two instruments: Prophet 5 and Prophet VS. Separate screen interfaces are also prepared for accessing them.
SEM – software emulation of one of the most famous Oberheim synthesizers – SEM. The virtual model perfectly combines warm musical tones reproduced with TAE technology with a full range of innovative features
Synclavier – The sound-generating possibilities of a virtual instrument are almost endless, but of course there is a lot of work to be done. Some idea of the potential of the instrument can be drawn from the factory presets, of which there are a huge number of recorded ones, but they do not cover the entire spectrum of its capabilities. Some presets show just complex chains of samples, with a multifaceted and continuous “sweep” of the timbre.
Synthi – Synthi V fully reflects the spirit of the unique analog synthesizer, which appeared in the 70s in London to inspire the entire developing world of electronic music, and has new superpowers that inspire our world today, and your music will sound differently.
