The Arturia V Collection 5 is one of our favorite instrument bundles (see our Arturia V Collection 5 review) and we’re glad to see the company is committed to improve it.
The V Collection 5.3 release brings a faster worfklow (big thumbs up here, the update process was quite annoying!) and a new Sound Store (which is not really great news, but hey, sound designers work hard and if this makes them get more money from Arturia, there’s no reason to complain).
All new Sound Store
Accessible directly from each instrument, the Sound Store gives users an exciting new way of adding fresh preset sounds to their collection.
Carefully crafted by expert sound designers, producers, and big-name artists alike, the packs available through the Sound Store contain dozens of super-usable presets that users can explore, demo, and purchase, all without leaving the application.
Some of the release titles include:
Kraft Tribute: an homage to the German electronic pioneers.
Sasha’s Signature: a collection of hot sounds from the venerable UK DJ.
Deep Ambient: dark, immersive pads and creepy, cinematic textures.
Tangerine Tribute: a psychedelic electronic adventure in sound.
The Arturia Software Center – the intelligent hub that manages Arturia instrument licenses and installation – has now been streamlined and simplified.
Users can now simply install or update their software collections with one click, making it simpler and faster than ever to get your vintage keyboard collection up and running.
Each instrument’s preset browser now automatically detects the presence of any Arturia controller keyboard, and intelligently assigns some functions of the controller to preset navigation.
Not only that, but extra fields have been added to the browser filter, letting you be even more precise when you want to find the perfect sound for your track.
5.3 is a free upgrade for current owners of V Collection 5.
