Arturia has released a free 8.1 update for their V Collection . A spokesperson told us, "V Collection continues to evolve and improve to make your musical journey more fun, more intuitive, and more accessible. V Collection 8.1 elevates our virtual instrument experience to new heights. With updated sound engines, enhanced accessibility features, broader compatibility, and a myriad of brand new presets, this release is a celebration of the ever-evolving creative potential of these instruments."
Here's some details direct from Arturia...
Explore microtonal tunings with OB-Xa V, Vocoder V, Emulator II V, Jup-8 V, and Jun-6 V, thanks to new compatibility with ODDSound's MTS-ESP, a versatile microtuning software utility designed with the help of Aphex Twin.
Every title in V Collection is now ready for Native Kontrol Standard implementation, ensuring a fluid workflow alongside the rest of your virtual instruments and effects.
Upgraded OB-Xa V sound engine
The growl machine has been supercharged with detailed analog voice dispersion, providing not just an earth-shaking sound, but the authentically nuanced imperfections of an ancient analog machine.
Analog Lab V accessibility
We've updated our all-in-one keyboard anthology with text-to-speech functionality, providing real-time audio feedback with every tweak and preset change - you can even configure it to respond to your MIDI controller adjustments.
More in-app tutorial updates
For V Collection 8, we upgraded many of our instruments' in-app tutorials to be even more informative and accessible; this has now been expanded to include every instrument.
MIDI / macro improvements
With your feedback in mind, we've made a number of adjustments to V Collection's workflow and configuration options, to ensure that nothing gets in the way of your creativity.
