Arturia, one of Avid’s most prized and renowned audio developers, keeps on bringing the very best of plugins to AAX. And now, they have multiplied their offering, introducing the powerhouse FX Collection alongside version 7 of V-Collection to deliver their new, essential bundles of vintage effects and virtual keyboards. Best yet, Avid is partnering with Arturia to offer both bundles at incredible prices for a limited time, exclusively on Avid Marketplace.
The FX Collection and V-Collection 7 are backed by 20 years of Arturia expertise in modeling and creative feature development. Their “secret sauce” lies in their unrivaled ability to faithfully revive studio classics while injecting game-changing new features, like look-ahead tracking, sidechaining, envelope followers, and advanced tone-shaping effects that take the plugins to towering new levels. Some of the plugins represent entirely original designs that combine what we all love most about the vintage effects, and from there, they roll out never before seen creative possibilities. This approach is letting countless musicians and producers ignore the limits of analog hardware gear so they can bring us sounds and expressions that have never been created before. Let’s take a look at these two powerhouse bundles.

Arturia is constantly meeting with current and prospective users to ask what vintage instruments they want to see reproduced in V-Collection. The result, once again, is that Arturia has given the music community the keys to the instruments and effects museum and has challenged us to find the limits of what we can create using a set of tools created with love and passion. Between these instruments and the effects in FX collection, Arturia is not only breathing new life and potential into this hardware; they are taking it to new levels beyond what their original creators could have ever imagined.
