Arturia let us know that they’ve updated V Collection, their collection of virtual instruments, with microtuning support, NKS compatibility and more.

Here’s what’s new in Arturia V Collection 8.1:

  • Microtuning compatibility – You can now explore microtonal tunings with OB-Xa V, Vocoder V, Emulator II V, Jup-8 V, and Jun-6 V, thanks to compatibility with ODDSound’s MTS-ESP, a microtuning software utility designed with the help of Aphex Twin.
  • NKS ready – Every title in V Collection is now ready for Native Kontrol Standard implementation.
  •  OB-Xa V – updated with detailed analog voice dispersion, improved envelope behavior, VCO sync and more.
  • Analog Lab V accessibility – their all-in-one keyboard anthology has been updated 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 – many of the in-app tutorials have been updated to be more informative and accessible.
  • MIDI / macro improvements –  including MIDI CC assignment, macro customization, and a number of workflow improvements.
