Arturia V Collection 8 is a big update of its vintage synth collection featuring 4 new plugins (OB-Xa, Vocoder V, Emulator II V, Jun-6V), updates & more.
If you are interested in vintage synthesizers, but you don’t have the money to finance them, you have to work with plugins. There are many emulations of legendary synths on the market. One of the most popular is the V Collection, which was updated today.
The V Collection 8 has a total of 28 plugins ranging from vom vintage Synthesizer recreations, samplers, e-pianos, pianos, organ, and more. Four plugins have been added to the bundle: OB-Xa, Vocoder V, Emulator II V, and JUN-6V. In addition, there are big updates for the Jupiter 8 & Stage-73 emulations, and a brand new Analog Lab V. On top, it features many new sounds, a new preset manager, and more.
V Collection 8 boasts some of the biggest upgrades to the series since it was first released; the instant polyphonic richness of Jun-6 V, the irresistible sampling charm of Emulator II V, the classic voice-sculpting formula of Vocoder V, and the larger-than-life analog power of OB-Xa V.

The JUN-6V is an emulation of the legendary Roland Juno 60 analog poly Synthesizer. Please not compare it with the Roland Juno 106 emulations. The Juno 60 had a fatter, characterful sound than the 106. The JUN-6V emulates this classic and offers numerous extra features such as more modulation, effects, etc.
Emulator II V recreates the familiar sound of the Emu Emulator II hardware sampler by Dave Rossum. It captures this iconic sound and puts it in a new 8-layer sampler plugin supercharged with new features. Original Emulator II sounds cannot be imported, unfortunately, but you can import samples yourself.
Besides these, there are two other plugins. The OB-Xa and the Vocoder V. The OB-Xa V is an emulation of the legendary Oberheim OB-Xa analog synthesizer. Some are currently waiting for the UB-Xa from Behringer. If you can’t wait, you can take a look at this emulation, which has also been upgraded with numerous features. OB-Xa V
One of the most exciting new synthesizers in the V-Collection is the Vocoder V. This emulates the well-known Moog Vocoder. Not as an effect plug-in but in the form of a virtual instrument. This can be played either with the help of the built-in Synthesizer with your voice or via the sampler. You can conveniently load your own samples into these and play them sequentially.
Thanks to its patchable interfaces, classic vocoders but also wild filtering sounds are possible. Super exciting in combination with drum loops.
