This ultimate selection of digital synthesizers has been in the making for almost 2 years now. Arturia’s engineers have been improving on the technical aspect of plugin development in order to get a step closer to the analog sound we’re all admiring. Their line-up of specially crafted tools for modern music production has been extended with 4 instruments.

The last 4 instruments are new to this collection: KORG MS-20 V, SQ80 V, Augmented STRINGS, and Augmented VOICES. The KORG MS-20 is a semi-modular synthesizer, specialized in the field of analog sounds. This primal black-colored plugin covers a broad range of sounds, from primal instruments to streamlined modern sounds. The replica of the classic Ensoniq’s 80s synth, SQ80 V, is known for a crossover between digital precision and analog imperfection. Its digital edge, analog warmth, and optimized workflow are the foundation of its performance. Augmented STRINGS merges synthesis and sampled strings into a range of authentic string sounds. Build your own string ensemble by using up to 2 strings layers and use the morph function to mold these two together. Control the color, time, motion, 2 custom FXs, and the master reverb & delay. Head over to the advanced section to dive a little deeper into the modulation section. Augmented VOICES holds on to the same layout and features as STRINGS. Due to its hybrid voice engine, you have access to a combination of synthesis and sampled vocals.
As a celebration of this launch, Arturia offers introductory prices on upgrades and purchases for all users. Arturia’s Collection 9 is currently discounted from €599 to €499,-. This offer will be available for a limited time so make sure you don’t miss out on it.
