Synthi V brings you all the experimental excitement of EMS’ legendary 3-oscillator analog synths—now infused with thoroughly modern enhancements. Venture beyond unusual lead and bass sounds to create soundscapes and sci-fi effects ranging from beautiful to bizarre and everything in between.
Compact form meets modular function
The British-born EMS family of synths—featuring the sonically identical Synthi AKS and VCS3—were among the first to distill modular synthesizer functionality into a more portable form. Where most competitive designs like the Minimoog sacrificed flexibility to size and simplicity, EMS retained a modular heart through the genius of one of the first matrix patchbays to grace a synth. That additional versatility led to more experimentation outside of melodic norms and into the more electronic realms of psychedelia and sci-fi effects. Cue Pink Floyd’s “On the Run” from “The Dark Side of the Moon” LP.
If you're one of the lucky ones who owns or has played a Synthi or VCS3, you'll not only be amazed at how accurate Arturia's model is, but also blown away by its new features.
In addition to making minor mods, they added a whole new set of digital tools that bring this instrument to the vanguard of today’s music. A modern step sequencer, dedicated beat-syncable LFO, and on-board effects are just some of the sonic goodies that will make Synthi V your new obsession. You also now have the power of full matrix modulation targeting every single parameter with totally variable signal strength.
On top of all that, Arturia turned this awesome monophonic synth into a 4-voice poly. With infinite sonic possibilities, it’s still easy to find just the right sound. Synthi V’s comes with an extensive library of leads, basses, textures, sound effects and more. Yet, it’s always easy to find the sound you’re looking for because of the universal system of categories and tags. Of course, you can organize your own patches using that same elegant system.
