Use Arturia Analog Lab For FREE Until July 3rd (Free Trial)

9

Arturia has extended the free trial version of the Analog Lab (€199 value) virtual instrument plugin until July 3rd, 2020.

Analog Lab is a virtual instrument that provides access to thousands of presets from Arturia’s popular V Collection series of synthesizer plugins. The available presets can’t be edited in detail, but there are some basic customization options available. In most cases, the user can adjust the filter cutoff and resonance parameters, envelopes, and some of the built-in effects.

The included presets can be browsed based on tags, instruments, sound designers, and music styles. Analog Lab looks simple on the outside, but it combines every V Collection synthesis engine in one place. You’ll find thousands of presets inspired by legendary analog synthesizers like the Minimoog, ARP 2600, Prophet-5, and many more.

Extended Free Trials – My Thoughts

Judging by the comments on several recent articles, some readers have a negative opinion about “extended free trial” and “limited time freebie” offers like this one. I respect every reader’s opinion and there’s certainly no right or wrong here – everyone has a specific workflow and a certain way of producing music. That said, here are my thoughts on the matter if you’re interested.

In my opinion, these are valuable offers that surely have a place in the BPB news section. Yes, having an expiration date on an instrument that you’re using isn’t ideal, but you can still get a lot of value out of it. If we take the Analog Lab offer as an example, music producers who install it now can use the plugin without any functional limitations over two months. The synthesizer can be used to create a whole bunch of samples, loops, and musical ideas that you can capture as audio recordings in your DAW and keep forever.

The way I see it, it’s kind of as if someone borrowed you their Minimoog (not the same, I know) or any other synthesizer for two months. That would be a sweet deal. Yes, it’s not the same as if someone borrowed you their hardware synthesizer, but you can get a similar amount of value out of an extended free trial.

We’re bedroom producers after all. We don’t have access to the most high-end studio gear out there, but there are many ways to get creative in your home studio and make amazing music. Now that we’re all stuck at home for a while, there’s plenty of time available for sound design and musical experimentation. This is as good a time as any to record a bunch of samples and musical ideas that you can use later when the inspiration kicks in.

Download

Analog Lab can be download from the product page on Arturia’s website. The software is available in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats. A valid email address is required to sign up for a free Arturia user account and activate the trial. Download the trial version of Analog Lab from the product page and activate the trial mode after installation. A similar offer is available for the Pigments wavetable synthesizer by Arturia.

UPDATE: Analog Lab by Arturia is on a 50% OFF sale at the moment.

      That’s the big question, isn’t it? especially considering these guys aren’t going to create a special EULA just for this special case. Also is the possibility “fingerprinting” has been implemented as DRM in the sound engine, which, even if using it commercially is allowed, would mean one would *definitely* have to get an email directly from them giving that approval and *never* lose that email.

        It’s an interesting topic. I think that at least some developers (if not most) will let you use the free trial software to its full extent during the trial period. What would be the point of these extended trials if you can’t put those sounds to good use eventually? But, I could be wrong and I am definitely NOT an expert on the topic. To be sure, always read the license and check all the details provided there.

      If you want to be sure, always check the license that is included with the product. I don’t think that using trial software in your music is forbidden – especially if it’s software that isn’t sample-based. But I’m *definitely* NOT an expert, it’s always best to double-check for yourself to be sure.

  1. Some licenses will even prevent you from sampling a bought and paid for software to make commercial sample packs. AFAIK, doing samples for your own use is of course permitted, else you probably couldn’t make anything at all… But then again, the question of time-limited licenses (be it a demo, cloud-based subscriptions, etc…) is raised. Software companies are usually a lot more restrictive than hardware companies, go figure. Ok, maybe not that japanese company who took down many sample packs of their drum machines (mostly the free packs, too!!) off the interwebs. *grmbl*

  2. I am enjoying all the extended trial/demo full function time-limited freebies you are posting, I am taking full advantage, while they last! Thanks! As an intermediate hobbyist bedroom producer, I will likely never have a budget for some of these vst’s, as great as they are. Being able to use them long term (60-90 days free) means I can see if I really really want to buy the full version, or continue without.

  3. I love it. I’m going to make a few hundred loops and fx for my own productions and keep it moving. Worth the risk to have an arsenal of top-notch kit that I could never personally afford, on borrow for a couple of months, LOL.

    Peace!!!

    Im not gonna use anything from arturia anymore, i bought a Minilab that is just so so so bad and buggy when i turn the knobs, if i turn them like a maniac very fast they responde very well, but if i turn it very slow it jumps all over and does some crazy things. Also i bought it because it cames with Analog Lab Lite and i tought it was a good deal, but now i dont use the minilab because it totaly sucks, and after the last update (4.2.0.3820) i lost so so so many presets, i had 550, i updated, and now i have 72, i dont know what the hell this guys are doing but from everything i researched, Arturia have some big problems with software, and they are way too greedy, almost never we get a discount, almost never we get a free plugin, they are the total opposite of Native Instruments, im using Native Instruments midi keyboard now and plugins and OH MY GOD, they are just perfecet, no reason at all to buy anything from arturia, im done with them, im very very pissed off for losing my presets, i tried everything you can imagine, my last option is a full format on the pc but i wont do that because i know it wont fix anything. Arturia = Crap

  5. When I buy Minilab mk2, I thought all these presets are normal presets,I didn’t know they can be gone, at least, I have 72 Preset, and my midi keyboard…

    What can I say, Thank you…
