Get 50% OFF Arturia V Collection 9


Plugin Boutique offers a 50% discount on Arturia’s flagship V Collection 9 instrument bundle until February 13th.

Arturia’s V Collection 9 is the latest update to the flagship bundle, bringing together 33 of Arturia’s best virtual instruments.

V Collection 9 usually costs €599, but with the 50% discount from Plugin Boutique, you can get it now for €299.

The collection includes strings, organs, pianos, and electric pianos, but it’s fair to say it’s primarily a collection of vintage synth emulations. Maybe it’s more appropriate to say the synths are the main reason I’d buy it.

As expected, it features some of the most iconic synths, like the Prophet 5, OB-Xa, Juno 6, Jupiter 8, DX7, and ARP 2600.

Since there are too many instruments to discuss, let’s focus on what’s new: the Korg MS-20 V, SQ80 V, Augmented Strings, and Augmented voices. The new instruments come with fourteen exclusive soundbanks.

The MS-20 V is dark and rough around the edges, and when pushed, it does well to capture the character of Korg’s legendary semi-modular synth. It’s perfect for anything industrial or dystopian.

The SQ80 V emulates a synth that makes me think of technology you see in 80s movies set in the future (Ensoniq SQ-80). It looked futuristic in that 80s way; it had a floppy disk drive, and it wasn’t quite perfect, to be polite. But, the imperfection is what gives it charm, and it’s why people now love it.

Augmented Strings is a great addition because it makes it easy to morph between traditional orchestral sounds and ultra-modern hybrid voices. Arturia isn’t the first to release a modern hybrid strings instrument, but they have done it well.

Augmented Voices is more of the same, but this time, with the human voice. It’s a very emotive instrument that should suit many styles.

V Collection 9 has a combined 9000+ presets and now comes with in-app tutorials for every instrument.

At €299, I think V Collection 9 is a solid buy, and I can’t imagine any complaints, but I’ve been an Arturia fan for years. I think they have released some outstanding virtual instruments (including those in Analog Lab) and effects, but one of the things I like most is how well they integrate with a good controller.

I use Arturia KeyLab controllers, and the MIDI mapping provides a real hands-on workflow. I’m sure the experience would be similar with controllers from other manufacturers.

If you’re looking for virtual vintage keyboard instruments with a modern touch, you can’t go far wrong with V Collection 9.

Since we love a good freebie around here, don’t forget IK Multimedia’s T-RackS EQ 81 is free until February 14th.

V Collection 9 comes in AU, VST, and AAX formats for macOS (10.13+) and Windows (10+). It also runs in Standalone mode.

  1. I bought Pigments + V-Collection 9 + FX-Collection (in this Order,one by one) alltogether on Black Friday for 269€ directly from Arturia – this is the real deal unless you need it now…

    This is an open Secret.

    • Currently you have 50% Winter sale (ends on March 2nd), so one can technically check if the cumulative discount from Arturia website Timmey talks about applies as well (I can’t because already own everything), one can get all instruments and effects for 300 € or so I think, excluding the four latest releases and Spark 2.

  2. I predict Arturia V-Collection X is about to get launched
    Happy to click on the link, I hope BPB earn something from it :-)

    I’m slightly baffled by anyone’s enthusiasm for this. How many synths do you actually need in your life? I’m not really one to talk, because I have more guitars than I need, but to use a synthesiser you need to spend a lot of time with it. Or maybe that’s just me. I’ll get my coat…

    • “How many synths do you actually need in your life?”


      Jokes aside, since you play guitar you probably own many different models because of tone. Single coil pick-ups, humbuckers, seven strings, twelve strings, acoustic, classic, 3/4 size, ukulele maybe? The same goes for amps and pedals. You don’t need more of the same, but variation is nice.

      Same thing for synths. Tone. Every model has a variation on the same saw wave, the same filter, the same hard sync, the same lfos etc… Not necessary, but nice to have available.

      As far as learning a new synthesizer goes, another guitar analogy. If you play your entire life a six-strings guitar and then you buy a seven-strings, do you need to learn again all chords? Not likely, you probably simply adjust what you already know and allow the new neck to dictate the way you approach playing (if you play metal/punk it doesn’t matter at all, since you just play power chords as before).

      For synths, if you know how to program a subtractive synth you can program all of them. If you know how to program a Jupiter-8, you can program a Minimoog, Prophet-5, Ob-Xa, SQ-80, MS-20, etc… You simply adjust what you already know and allow the new layout to dictate the way you approach sound making (sounds familiar?). Even more esoteric stuff, such as oldschool FM synthesis with no filters or modular-spaghetti-monster racks, can be approached with a subtractive framework in mind, at least for common sounds such as bass plucks, leads and pads (you know, sounds you need to make actual music).

      As a side note, some digital software synths are overbloated with features and most users deal with maybe 10% of the features (like punk guitarists who get away with just power chords). Youtube influencers who flex on sound design and teach overproduction as a way of life are not an example of what you’re supposed to do with a synth anyway.

  4. Does this come with the individual plugins for each instrument?

    I’m asking because you can buy one of their controllers (not the mini, though) and get the full analog lab for free. If this is analog lab, it’s cheaper to buy the hardware. But that just doesn’t sound right.

    • Yes, V-Collection comes with all 32 plugins and Analog Lab as well. In Analog Lab you just have presets and some macros you can tweak, but you don’t have access to the full synth interface unless you own the individual plugin as well
