“The Magic Mix

With its sound palette varying from heavy drum n’ bass stabs to angular arpeggiated electro bass lines, whatever your chosen genre, the 2600 is a truly versatile sound creation tool which still takes its place at the heart of today’s music.

With a unique combination of semi-modular architecture and fixed preset routing, it gave it the place of being one of the most versatile synths of the 1970’s.

A Legend is Back

The Arp 2600 was an iconic sound and Arturia has been faithful in recreating this amazing synthesizer. From the sound of the 3 oscillators to the original ‘grey face’ filter to the vast modulation routing abilities. You get all this and more.

B-3 V

B-3 V

“The B-3 V delivers the most authentic tonewheel organ and rotary speaker experience you’ll find anywhere, plus customizations that open up new creative opportunities.

Monarch of electronic organs, the rich sounding B3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, rock, reggae and R&B—not to mention pro studios everywhere—for over a half century. Its electromagnetic tonewheel design gave it a beefy quality not found on later transistor organs. Our faithful homage includes an authentic rotary speaker and an array of stomp boxes, plus inspiring updates like analog circuit mods and drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.

Clavinet V

“THE FUNKIEST ELECTRIC KEYBOARD EVER

The Clavinet V faithfully models the electric keyboard that put the funk in many ‘70s hits. This vintage instrument’s unmistakable sound will help your music jump right out of the speakers. No keyboard collection is complete without it.

The “Clav” sound is so iconic that most keyboards have a patch that tries to emulate it. Why settle for an approximation?

From the first note you play on the Clavinet V, you know this is no sample or synth. You feel that organic grit that only comes from a physical instrument, reproduced in minute detail by our award-winning modeling technology. We recreated the iconic Clavinet D6—including lightning response, multiple pickups, EQ rockers and variable mute. You can even tech your own customizations to age your instrument to taste. Dial in the rest of that coveted vintage sound you’re looking for with the built-in virtual guitar amp and stompbox rig—or just hit the extensive preset library.

“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.

“She’s a replicant

CS-80 V is our modeled version of the legendary Yamaha™ CS-80, considered by many to be the ultimate polyphonic synthesizer of the late ‘70s.

Huge in size and price tag, the CS-80 was a flagship synthesizer of the 1970’s. It’s unique dual voice layout allowed for rich and full sounds that have not been matched to this day. It was popularized by artists such as Toto, Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, Stevie Wonder, Vangelis, Ultravox and Peter Gabriel, to name a few. Hit song after hit song has turned this synthesizer into a true legend.

More than three decades after its release, the time has come to rediscover a sound that has contributed extensively to the history of music.

DX7 V

DX7 V

“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.

“The FlagShip returns

Jup-8 V is a powerful addition to the family of analog synthesizer recreations by Arturia. Offering the unique sound palette of the Roland Jupiter 8, this virtual version is a sound designer’s dream

This was the flagship synth that put the Japanese manufacturers on the map as serious competitors the early ’80’s. With its colorful user interface and great sound, the Jup 8 scored a hit among musicians the world over.

Crystal clear fatness

The original instrument was known for its lush pads and haunting leads, its ability to split and layer sounds and its flexible arpeggiator. Jup-8 V not only provides these original features, it created an original sound that is respected to this day.

“ENTER THE MATRIX

The massively powerful Oberheim Matrix-12 has been resurrected at last. Using our TAE™ modeling technology, we are able to recapture this beast of a synthesizer and bring it to you.

The Matrix 12 was the first programmable analog synthesizer that took the best features of a preset voice path and modular flexibility. This bold combination made it a force of nature and something that had not been seen before. It also had a 15 mode filter system that enabled it to have sounds that had never been heard before.

“Technology meets History

From the starship funk lead lines of the ‘70s to the gangster whine of mid ‘90s hip-hop, the ever-present MiniMg has been making its fat presence known for over 4 decades.

In partnership with Bob Moog we recreated the legendary interface of his early 70’s synth that was and is loved by generations of musicians. What truly makes this synth the Legend of Legends is its sound, and so we took great care to model the subtleties of its internal characteristics as well.
