“B-Box is a classic step sequencer for beats and drum tracks: 16 steps, each with velocity control, and 13 instruments provide the tools for quick and easy beat production, while the integrated mixing section lets you tweak your sounds to perfection. Over 300 groove presets each with 6 patterns provide plenty of fodder should you need some inspiration. B-Box also offers integrated effects in the form of reverb and delay, while drag and drop of MIDI files allows easy transfer of patterns to Cubase.”
“Air Music Technology originally created Boom as part of the Creative Collection of instrument plug-ins included as part of Avid™ Pro Tools™. As the popularity of Pro Tools grew, more and more musicians and producers relied on the incredible sonic firepower of this amazing Drum Machine. Boom continued to evolve, and demand grew. Boom is now available on its own by popular demand, available to anyone who demands instant creativity in AU/VST formats.
Boom features a slick modern interface that pays homage to the most popular vintage drum machines of the past. Boom has been used on many famous projects since its launch, ranging from hit albums, feature films and radio projects. It’s one of the most loved Pro Tools Plugins.

“PEERLESS SAMPLING CHARACTER
The CMI V is a spot-on reincarnation of the first commercially available digital sampling system in music history—the sonic powerhouse behind numerous early MTV-era megahits. We even went the extra mile and added new creative features that weren’t possible back in the day.
In 1980, the Fairlight CMI turned heads with the introduction of digital sampling. Now our software homage lets you turn some heads yourself.

“Casio’s mid-‘80s digital synths were light on price and big on sound. One listen and you’ll be really big on the new, improved CZ V.
Like you, we love synths of every flavor. That’s why we just had to recreate the true essence of Casio’s patented phase distortion synthesis that made their CZ series so popular. You don’t need to understand how phase distortion works—just let your ears tell you how cool and unique it would sound in your music.
As you’ve come to expect from all of Arturia’s V Collection, our enhancements transform CZ into an even more formidable sonic force that can transform your music.

“FM MADE EASY
The DX7 V accurately models the FM digital synthesizer that became synonymous with the sound of the ‘80s. Our enhancements add more of everything to make the new DX7 V a sound for all time.
In 1983, the DX7 changed the world of music. Today, the DX7 V gives you the power to change it again.
Nothing says ‘80s like the sound of the DX7. Our authentic recreation gives you all the same FM digital technology and sounds that earned the instrument a revered place in the history of both keyboards and contemporary music. We didn’t stop at just replicating it, though —we re-imagined it. New operator waves, extensive modulation additions, arpeggiator and onboard FX chains enhance your sonic possibilities exponentially. For bonus points, an intuitive graphic interface makes what was once a daunting programming task a creative joy today.

Key Suite Digital
“The Essential Vintage Digital Keys Collection
Back in the ‘80s many synth manufacturers began releasing keyboards and modules dedicated to acoustic and electric piano sounds. The most iconic of these instruments was the Roland MKS-20 expander, which introduced the SAS (Structured / Adaptive Synthesis) sound engine. These instruments weren’t perfect, especially by modern standards, but at the time it was incredible to have real, playable keys in a light and portable unit. Digital sampling has advanced tremendously since those days making these units largely obsolete, but we love their lo-fi sound. Something about early digital sampling makes them unique, even today. Old-school, a bit cheesy and a far-cry from today’s instruments, but familiar and full of character – the sounds of these vintage digital modules from the ’80s and ’90s is close to our hearts, and now preserved forever.”
“The Whole is better than the Sum of the parts
The Prophet 5 and Prophet VS set standards and redefined the modern synthesizer. We have brought these classics back to life for you.
The Prophet 5 was the first totally programmable synthesizer on the market. This revolutionary synth became the basis for all other polysynths to this day. The Prophet VS was the last synth made by SCI and again it set the synth world on its ear. Its digital vector synthesis brought a new soundscape that was then carried on in products from Korg and Yamaha.
The original prophet
While the Prophet 5 was known for its 2 oscillator analog warmth, the Prophet VS used four digital wave table oscillators giving a crystal and clear sound. We have recreated both of these classic machines to give them the detail heard in the originals.

“DIGITAL DREAM MACHINE
The Synclavier V faithfully recreates the elite digital synthesizer/workstation that started it all, powering some of the biggest hits and film soundtracks of the early ‘80s with its unique rich, edgy sounds.
If you were to ask anyone back in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s to name the Holy Grail of synthesizers, the most revered of them all was New England Digital’s Synclavier. Its unique combination of additive synthesis and frequency modulation delivered a creative edge to the privileged few keyboardists, producers, film composers and sound designers who could afford systems that ranged from $13k to $400k.
Some of those rock-solid systems are still in use today. Arturia has recreated this highly revered hit maker in partnership with original programmer Cameron Jones, delivering the immense rich textures and creative palette of this vintage instrument, while dramatically improving it to let you blaze new musical trails today with sounds never heard before.
