Since the breaking days of 2012, Arturia’s been knocking them out of the park over and over again. This time around, we’re going to take a look at three new software releases from Arturia that are sure to turn up the summer heat: SEM V, Wurlitzer V, and the Spark Vintage Drum Machines add-on pack.
A re-creation of the legendary Oberheim SEM analog synth module, SEM V embodies everything Arturia puts into one of their modeled instruments. In addition to capturing the sound, key response, and parameter interaction of the original instrument, SEM V gives you cool bonus features, including a second LFO, a noise generator, an arpeggiator, and three advanced control modules. Ultimately, any sound from Arturia’s original Oberheim SEM can be achieved by the SEM V — plus a whole lot more.
Next is Arturia’s Wurlitzer V, which gives you the warmth, vibrance, and unequalled vitality of an original Wurlitzer 200A electric piano captured through the finest vintage recording gear. Arturia also modeled a wide selection of classic amplifiers and stompboxes, making it easy to get the vintage electric piano sound you want. When you pick up Wurlitzer V, you don’t just get an amazing virtual instrument. You also get a fully loaded virtual studio’s worth of gear to go with it.
Finally, there’s the Spark Vintage Drum Machines expansion pack for Arturia’s Spark hybrid groove workstation. For one super-affordable price, Spark Vintage Drum Machines adds 30 incredible classic drum machines to your sound library, ranging from analog favorites such as the Roland TR-808 to long-lost rarities such as the Sequential Circuits Drumtrax. Add to that killer presets and 14 excellent effects, and you just can’t beat the value of Arturia’s Spark Vintage Drum Machines.
