Hello there--

Can you elaborate a little on what you're looking for, and maybe include a link? Not sure if you're comparing to other products for price, how the sounds fits certain genres, etc.

:-D
Thanks,

Hey there Stephen.
Thanks so much for your response.

Just overall quality, user friendliness, and audio engine compared to say Native INstruments, not so much price but I have heard a lot about Arturia and I have historically been an acoustic music out of the box guy except for more natural samples like EastWest which I have been a user for 10 yrs or more. . I am looking to venture to new genres now that I am joining Taxi (newbie) and looking for more experienced user comments. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks for your help.
Lou.

Gotcha. I understand now. I think you'll get some good replies from the experts in this forum with the extra info you provided.

Personally, I'm an NI guy from long, long back, so I'm interested to read the replies as well.

Taxi is awesome! The members are awesome and so is this forum! Welcome!
Thanks,

Cool thanks Razor.

I think it will be a good thing joining Taxi. Hope to start off on the right foot. I have been recording others for quite some time and just sold my day business to get back to music. I think Taxi will be the structure I need to get it going.

Cheers.
Lou

If am a big fan of Arturia soft-synths as well as their MIDI controllers. They just put out their newest controller, the Keylab MKII and I know this got really good reviews. Might be worth looking into!

Hi Noego - I have and have used both NI Kontakt 3 and 6, the current and (I think) the original Arturia collection, and Propellerhead Reason soft synths. I love Reason and use it a LOT for everything, but am currently feeling the need to add "refills" for new synth sounds. Arturia's soft synths are great if you're looking for the sounds of famous synths and keys - or can tweak the parameters to get at specific sounds. For me it's usually tweaking or removing a sound's effects to make a more cohesive mix. There are also a ton of instruments to choose from. I have the Arturia V Collection 7, which is the whole collection of 24 synths (they do a really great upgrade deal from previous versions of the Arturia collection). Arturia's Analog Labs module lets you browse and edit all of the presets of the V Collection 7 from it and combine sounds from various synths to make new sounds. It also has really handy description tags (such as ambient, simple, complex, lead, soft, etc.) which saves a ton of time. I think you need the Collection to use it, but I could be wrong there. NI's Kontakt 6 has the new hybridizers in Analog Dreams, Ethereal Earth, and Hybrid Keys, all of which allow the user to choose two sounds to combine to make new synth sounds but I don't find it as user friendly. I'm liking them though for specific ambient content but Arturia's are the soft synths outside of Reason that I end up using most often. You can tweak the sounds in the NI synths - it just doesn't seem as user friendly to me or as transparent. The Arturia Piano V collection is a real standout for me. It has dozens of different combos for pianos, rooms, and mic placements, which suits me well for whatever sound fits into the overall piece. Note that I don't do solo piano pieces, so take that for what it's worth. I'm a guitar player and drummer, so actual piano players may have different opinions about what works for them on pieces that feature acoustic piano and soft synths. Also, I've never used NI's Massive or Absynth and I've heard they're great. I'd be interested to see what others think of those. This is my first ever post and I really hope this is helpful in some way and not grossly long winded!
Cheers!
Heidi

Check out this YouTube video

She shows off some presets and something I didn't know, there's a Arturia Sound Store where users are selling presets but the cool thing is you can preview some of the presets before you purchase the preset.

Here's where you can preview the sounds once you click on one of the presets from above.

Their strong suite is probably vintage synth emulations. An example of a dud, https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail ... -brass-2.0
