Saw this pop up in my YouTube feed. I don't think anyone else posted about it yet (i.e. ElmerJFudd).

Edit. Looks like there was a mention? Crap. http://forums.musicplayer.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/2894072/Arturia_V_Collection_6_announc

Yeah, you gotta get up pretty early in the morning to beat some of us veterans to the punch. wink

A quick play through of the CMI V presets finds it to be a lot of sound effects and not a lot of stuff I'd find instantly useful.

The DX 7 V on the other hand...

I find that Arturia's presets in general don't seem that usable or inspiring! I think they're just there as a starting point.

It's pretty incredible that they now have a plugin emulation of both the Synclavier and the Fairlight. Other companies (like UVI) have done them already, but only in a sample library format.

Wow, I wasn't aware they had done a DX7 as well. It's questionable if you need another one, though, with FM8 and Dexed etc... - does it offer anything those don't?

Maybe not, but a quick look at the first page of the forum for the word Arturia would have saved you a post.... twothumbs

Arturia's DX seems to have a couple of features that FM8 doesn't and I've never tried Dexed.

I have an old DX9 in the closet that I almost wanted to drag out and compare. But the DX7 V sounded right on to my ears.

I did not realize that the Fairlight was part of the Collection V 6. I never paid much attention to the collections since I am not big into soft synths (yet :-D). Therefore I did not research that thread.
