An expanded 61-key flagship Analog Experience keyboard is here. And if that wasn’t enough, the first new Arturia Analogue-Modelling VST in several years is a recreation of one of the fattest, most revered analogues of the last 35 years, with a few very unique tricks up its sleeve…
ARTURIA announces the shipping of its fourth and most sophisticated keyboard in the Analog Experience series: Analog Experience THE LABORATORY 61 is a 61-note MIDI keyboard with velocity and aftertouch-sensitive keys that is designed to easily integrate into any studio and stage environment.
Packaged with the Analog Laboratory software, it also offers direct control over 3500 of the world’s finest analogue patches, 330 drum loops and 200 scenes. As a matter of fact, the workflow is the same as on a traditional hardware synthesizer, but at better value and with better integration in the studio environment.
Assignable pads, knobs and faders also make AE Laboratory 61 the ideal MIDI keyboard to control third party software or MIDI hardware devices.
Arturia Oberheim SEM-V
Oberheim SEM-V is a powerful virtual recreation of Oberheim‘s legendary SEM – Synthesizer Expander Module, capable of producing a wide range of warm analog sounds, but with a signature all of its own.
Reproducing the unique SEM circuit architecture, with its oscillator sync, characteristic filter shape and specific envelope response, the SEM V is able to generate the fat basses that have made Oberheims so popular. Thanks to its simple and clever PW and pitch modulations, it is also very easy to produce moving and lively leads.
Its remarkable 12 dB/oct multimode filter is a real blast from the past, becoming an awesome weapon in the context of current electronic music. This unique module can in an instant create fat, crisp, or spectral textures with access to all the nuances in between…
The result of this lengthy project is a faithful virtual instrument that delivers the same acoustic properties as the original, and several new twists to make it even easier to use.
