A classic synth in downloadable form.
If you were to ask anyone back in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s to name the Holy Grail of synthesizers, the most revered of them all was New England Digital’s Synclavier. Its unique combination of additive synthesis and frequency modulation delivered a creative edge to the privileged few keyboardists, producers, film composers and sound designers who could afford expensive systems.
Some of those rock-solid systems are still in use today. Arturia has recreated this revered hit maker in partnership with original programmer Cameron Jones, delivering the immense rich textures and creative palette of this vintage instrument, while dramatically improving it to let you blaze new musical trails today with sounds never heard before.
Sounds you will only find here
There’s nothing else like the powerhouse sound of the Synclavier V. There’s no hint of analog or samples here—this is the sound of unabashed digital synthesis in all its glory. While it can certainly create unique mellow tones, this vintage flagship is known for its distinctive digital character, ranging from edgy to eardrum-ripping brash to intergalactic. It’s especially ideal for extended pads and cinematic, ambient soundscapes. Plus, Arturia made significant updates that make the Synclavier V a thoroughly modern instrument with sounds that set it completely apart.
Hundreds of presets from the world’s top sound designers tame the unparalleled power of the Synclavier V and place it at your fingertips for instant inspiration and easy customization.
A programmer’s dream
While you’ll get tons of love from Synclavier V’s presets alone, there’s a universe of sonic adventures waiting just beneath the surface. The unique sound of the Synclavier V comes from its blend of additive and FM synthesis, with control over 24 additive harmonics on both the carrier and modulation oscillators. Where the original instrument let you mix four uniquely programmed Partials Timbres in a Timbre preset, Arturia’s recreation has twelve, boosting your creative possibilities. The Time Slice engine allows complex evolutions of the sound over time—even several minutes if you want.
Programming the Synclavier V is a study in elegance. Three different interface views let you choose the depth of control that best suits your needs. The Synclavier V lets you realize the dream of an entire stunning synth orchestra with just one plugin.
Welcome to an exclusive club
35 years ago, most musicians never had the chance to even touch, let alone use, the most coveted instrument of the day. Now with Synclavier V, that’s history. Now you can enjoy the same creative advantage as did Michael Jackson, Tangerine Dream, Sting, Frank Zappa, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and other iconic acts. You’ll still have an exclusive instrument—you won’t find a recreation anywhere else, let alone one faithfully co-created and enhanced by the original programmer.
Round out your collection with this rare digital luxury instrument once only found in universities, laboratories and elite studios.
