Arturia V Collection 9: MS20, SQ80, Rebuilt CS80, Cinematic Sounds and more

The Arturia V Collection just got another major update, reaching version 9 and adding both new instruments and a (personally much appreciated) redesign of some of the classic ones.

If you’re not familiar with it (in that case, check out our Arturia V Collection 8 review), V Collection 9 is a premium suite of professional software instruments ranging from modern hybrid synth engines to emulations of the most evocative instruments ever made, enhanced for today’s production workflow.

What’s New In V Collection 9?

  • KORG MS-20 V
    Primal black monolith, with an elemental analog sound and a semi-modular architecture, reawakened. I’m a fan of the good old 2004 emulation by KORG, now available in the KORG COLLECTION. It’s going to be interesting to compare the two, although I expect the Arturia version, being newer, to have the edge.

  • SQ80 V
    The Ensoniq SQ-80 is a classic analog/digital hybrid of the late eighties. Hybrid lo-fi crosswave synth fusing thousands of digital waveforms combinations with crunchy analog filters.

  • Augmented STRINGS
    Innovative instrument combining sampled strings with state-of-the-art synthesis and deep morphing controls.
  • Augmented VOICES
    Blending the human voice with multiple synth engines and expressive controls for evocative hybrid sound.
  • 4 Rebuilt Instruments
    CS-80 V, Prophet-5 V, Prophet-VS V, and Piano V have been completely rebuilt from scratch, with brand new sound engines, updated features, and enhanced production capabilities. I’m particularly interested in checking out the new CS-80 V, since it’s one of the oldest and yet more unique instruments in the bundle.

  • 14 exclusive sound banks
    An exclusively-crafted selection of presets demonstrating the sonic prowess of each of V Collection 9’s new titles.
