The Only Instruments Bundle You Will Ever Need - Arturia V9 Collection

Are you tired of constantly searching for new virtual instruments to add to your collection? Look no further than the Arturia V9 Collection - the only instrument bundle you will ever need.

One of the most common questions I get asked from producers of all levels is:

"What is the best plugin for x, or what would you recommend for y?"

Now there's no one-size fits all answer I can give for these questions, as it will ultimately depend on your tastes & needs. While I can't suggest something that will suit everyone, what I can do is suggest options based on my own experiences of using plugins that are more likely to appeal to a broader audience. If you wish to know what I'd recommend for different instrument and effects, you can read about all our plugin recommendations here.

For now, let's talk about one of the most important plugin types to have in your collection, which are software instruments & sound libraries - the tools that are going to help you create your sounds. What you need will ultimately depend on the type of music you create. However, there is one high-value bundle, in my opinion, that gives you all you really need with plenty of creative potential including everything from keyboards, to synths, to samplers. That is the Arturia V9 Collection.

Arturia V9 Collection

The Arturia V9 Collection features 33 virtual instruments that emulate some of the most iconic analog synthesisers in history, making it a powerful tool for producers and musicians alike. Whether you're creating electronic dance music or composing film scores, there's an instrument in the collection that will fit your needs.

But what sets the Arturia Collection apart from other instrument bundles on the market?

  • For starters, the instruments have been meticulously modelled to sound and behave like their hardware counterparts. This means that you get the same warmth and character that you would expect from vintage analog synths, but with the convenience and versatility of software.

  • In addition, the V Collection 9 boasts a revamped interface that makes it easier than ever to navigate through the instruments and access their various parameters. The new preset browser is also a welcome addition, allowing you to quickly find the perfect sound for your track.

  • The bundle also includes a master plugin called Analog Lab V, which acts as a gateway to all of the instruments in the collection. This means that you can easily browse through all 33 instruments and their presets, without having to load each one up individually.

But the V Collection isn't just about vintage synths. It also includes some brand-new additions like the Jun-6 V, Emulator II V, Vocoder V, and OB-Xa V. These instruments may not have the same historical significance as some of the other synths in the collection, but they still pack a punch when it comes to sound quality and versatility.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a comprehensive collection of virtual instruments that covers all of your needs, the Arturia V9 Collection is the way to go. With its combination of vintage and modern synthesizers, intuitive interface, and convenient Analog Lab plugin, it truly is the only instrument bundle you will ever need.
