ARTURIA RELEASES SIX PLUG-INS ‘YOU’LL ACTUALLY USE’
Arturia has launched a new range of plug-ins. Three of them are emulations of famous preamps, while the other three are recreations of unique filters taken from classic synthesizers.
- 1973-Pre: a modern take on Rupert Neve’s classic solid-state pre, complete with switchable boutique transformers
- TridA-Pre: made famous by Trident Studio’s A Range consoles, our updated preamp model accurately adds this gold-dust tone to your DAW
- V76-Pre: modelling the classic Telefunken tube tone at the heart of the ‘White Album’ sound, and integrating a rare shelf EQ for extra control
- SEM-Filter: recreated from one of the earliest self-contained analogue synths. We updated this state-variable filter with a simple but effective sequencer
- Mini-Filter: we cracked the code of Dr Moog’s renowned ladder filter, and let you control it with a whole new generation of tools.
- M12-Filter: modelled on Tom Oberheim’s formidable multi-mode filter found on the Matrix-12, the plugin also features twin filters, mod osc and random generators, hugely customisable mod matrix, and programmable envelopes.
Having test driven the new plugs, we can confidently say they live up to Arturia’s marketing slogan, “Plug-ins you’ll actually use.” Apart from sounding the business they’re flexible, easy on the CPU, easy to use, and very nice to look at.
