Arturia Black Friday Sale


Recommended Posts

Vintage virtual synth plug-in maker Arturia is having a Black Friday sale: https://www.arturia.com/black-friday-19#en


Musicians who want to recreate the sounds of decades past can get at least $200 off the standard price of the company's V Collection, which groups all of the individual soft-synths into one package. The Black Friday sale price of the suite is $299, but if you've bought qualifying Arturia products before, the price drops even lower to $199.

The V Collection contains 24 classic -- and sometimes obscure -- synths. Headliners include recreations of Roland's Jupiter-8, Yamaha's CS-80 and Sequential Circuits' Prophet-5. Each year, Arturia adds a few synths to the pile, with plug-ins of the Mellotron, an amalgam of Casio's CZ series and the EMS Synthi being the latest members of the collection.

These plug-ins come in a variety of formats, so can use them in just about any digital audio workstation. Each also works in standalone mode, so even if you don't own Logic Pro, ProTools or any other DAW, you can still play the synths -- you'll just need a USB or MIDI controller. However, you won't be able to add any external processing or record your music.

Arturia's instruments can be purchased individually, but they cost $149. Another $150 and you'll go from one synth to 24. The sale prices are valid for 16 days at the company's website. If you're on the fence, a free demo is available for each plug-in.

the dx7 and synclavier are pretty good. the DX sounds great really and can get really nice sounding and gnarly too. i got the bundle as NFR from the arturia rep when he came into modular8.  super nice people. the buchla easel sounds good too.  i'm not so much into the super realistic interfaces but the other panels w/all the mods etc are good. 

the DX is compatible w/all the DX7 presets on the internet and a guy on KVR converted more than 7000 of them so all you have to do is drop them into the folder w/the arturia library. if you load them all then it takes a long time to load the plug in because i guess it caches all the presets or something. 

the matrix 12 is also pretty cool. complex stuff because of how they chose to use the realistic interface when perhaps there would've been a better way to make  GUI that was modern and more functional.. but the other pages beyond the initial emulation GUI are good.
