|Click to enlarge
Arturia has released the latest in their mega pack of software synthesizers, V Collection X. In addition to all the synthesizers in V Collection 9 the new release adds:
- CP-70 V (modeled Yamaha style electric piano)
- MiniFreak V (experimental hybrid synth, combines analog and digital voices)
- Acid V (Roland Bassline style synth)
- Augmented GRAND PIANO
- Augmented BRASS
- Augmented WOODWINDS
In addition to all these new synthesizers the following have been REWORKED:
- Mini V (Mini Moog modeled synthesizer)
- Wurli V (vintage Wurlitzer electric piano)
WHY V COLLECTION?
Since I upgraded my DAW to the 20-core MacStudio, V-Collection 9 has been finding its way onto almost every one of my compositions. This little computer has so much power, storage and DRAM (4TB SSD and 128GB memory), it has truly made the V-Collection synthesizers a joy to use by eliminating processor overload. When I saw the announcement for V-Collection X update it was a no-brainer upgrade for me.
If you are already an Arturia user they always offer a great upgrade deal and this one is no exception. The $199 upgrade (my personal upgrade price) was an easy decision and one that keeps the V-Collection up to date with the latest patches and tweaks.
Arturia generously allows the package to be installed on up to five computers and all of this is made easy by installing through the ASC or Arturia Software Center app. For the most part my antique brain has found the ASC to be intuitive and easy to use.
NO DONGLE: You install and manage your Arturia synthesizers from the ASC, they track your installs and usage from this one easy to use application.
FULL DETAILED REVIEW COMING SOON TO H.o.T.
After I complete my installation of all the new synths and upgrades I'll post a full and detailed review covering the latest additions.
Thanks for reading High on Technology.
Good Music To You!
