Software and hardware synth creators Arturia have announced a new exciting update to their flagship virtual instrument package. The first major update to V Collection 6 since its release in December 2017, version 6.1 sees the introduction of several new advancements and refinements.


Now every V Collection instrument is “Native Kontrol Standard” enabled, meaning that Native Instruments Kontrol owners will be able to enjoy intelligent feature mapping, giving them fast, intuitive control over the sounds and parameters.


The popular preset browser from our award-winning Analog Lab 3 is now available on all V Collection Instruments. This small but powerful change makes it even easier to find specific sounds based on what instrument was used to make them. For example, Prophet V users will quickly be able split their searches for sounds made using the Prophet VS, Prophet 5, and the hybrid mode.


The best performing V Collection to date. Arturia’s team of dedicated engineers have been trialing, testing, and working hand in hand with DAW and system manufacturers to ensure that compatibility and reliability is never compromised. V Collection 6.1 gives you the most stable, enjoyable software experience possible.

To celebrate the update, Arturia are running a limited-time offer, making V Collection 6.1 available to as many as possible.

During this promotion, 3 exclusive new sound banks will be offered to all V Collection 6 users. Created by award-winning sound designers, these sound packs let users explore the exciting, inspiring sounds made possible by Arturia’s advanced modelling technologies.

Unique crossgrade deals are offered to existing customers, and upgrades to owners of older versions of V Collection. The promotion will run between April 26 and May 15. To find out your unique offer, visit the V Collection 6.1 page: The included sound banks are:
