When Arturia announce they’re going to update what is probably the most impressive soft synth collection on the market, it’s time to get excited. The ‘V Collection 6’ adds some eye-popping gear to the already impressive arsenal of digital recreations of analogue classics. There’s a Clavinet, Hohner’s funk machine, which was responsible the sound of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Higher Ground’. Given that the original’s hammer tips were prone to decompose into goo, a software version is welcome. There’s also a DX7, which has come out of the 1980s hall of shame to be celebrated as a classic. The two most thrilling additions are a Buchla Music Easel, the 1973 experimenter’s favorite, and, hold on to your hats, a Fairlight CMI, which Arturia have lovingly recreated and expanded into sound design monster.
