The V-Collection 9 introduces four new synthesiser models to the already stacked range of instruments featured in previous versions. The new additions include a Korg MS-20, an Ensoniq SQ80 digital synth, and two new plugins in Arturia’s new ‘Augmented’ range, the Augmented STRINGS and the Augmented VOICES. 

The new ‘Augmented’ plugins allows for the blending of the sample-based sound library with a range of effects to create modulated strings and vocals.

Along with the four new additions, Arturia has updated the sound engines in four previously available synths, in order to more accurately recreate the classic sounds and improve the quality of the sound engine. The recreated models are the Prophet 5, which has now been split into two separate plugins, the Yamaha CS-80, and the acoustic piano range.

Along with the wide variety of virtual instruments included in the V-Collection, there are 832 new presets spread across all instruments, allowing those without a deep understanding of synthesis to jump in and create music from the get go.

With the V-Collection 9, Arturia is offering 32 virtual instruments and literally thousands of presets for US$599, and is currently reduced to US$499 for the next 30 days. As far as value for money goes, you would be hard pressed to find a better deal on a collection of virtual instruments that is this extensive.
