Arturia nurtures NI’s NKS® advanced third-party instrument integration with exclusive V Collection 4 pricing
GRENOBLE, FRANCE: having been actively involved in NI’ new NKS® (NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD) allowing advanced integration with third-party software instruments, music software and hardware developer and manufacturer Arturia is proud to partner with the Berlin- based audio production and DJ’ing software and hardware manufacturer by offering exclusive promotional pricing on its V Collection 4 ultimate reference software collection of keyboards and drum machines at the NI Online Shop until November 15, 2015…
October 27, 2015 marks the release of NKS®, NI’ extended plug-in format allowing third-party software instrument developers to directly address hardware features in its KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series and MASCHINE systems.
Integration is something that is central to Arturia, as attested to by its hybrid hardware/software successes. So now not only is its V Collection 4 ultimate reference software collection of keyboards and drum machines fully integrated with its own cutting-edge KeyLab keyboard controllers, but also those of NI. “NKS®, as a new format, is more than promising and will serve musicians by offering a standard in integration between software instruments and controllers. We all understand our customers want to build solutions of their own, taking what they consider the best, or most interesting, from each brand,” says Arturia President Frédéric Brun. “Let’s help them!”
NI CEO Daniel Haver has this to say: “Integration has been at the centre of NI’ philosophy since we introduced our first software/hardware solutions over a decade ago. With the release of the NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD®, we’re moving this vision of true integration a bold leap forward. Now, the power of KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE is open to the whole community of software instrument developers. And we are honoured that highly- respected partners such as Arturia are travelling this road with us.”
To celebrate this forward-looking, ‘cross-country’ integration, Arturia’s award-winning V Collection 4 ultimate reference software collection of keyboards and drum machines is now available at the NI Online Shop for only
$199.00/€199.00/¥24,500.00/£144.00/AU$269.00. “It is a real pleasure to partner with NI on this exceptional promotion around V Collection,” concludes Frédéric Brun.
V Collection 4 takes the premium software collection concept musically further forward. All 12 of Arturia’s award-winning Analog Classics range of authentic-sounding software recreations of classic analogue instruments are included, such as the relatively recent VOX Continental V (Sixties-vintage VOX Continental 300 combo organ), Solina V (Seventies-vintage Solina String Ensemble string machine), and Matrix 12 V (Eighties-vintage Oberheim Matrix-12 polysynth). Also included is SPARK 2, Arturia’s advanced sound-sculpting and beat performance software featuring over 170 drum machines and over 5,500 patterns ranging from hip-hop to many of the latest EDM genres.
Inspiration comes quickly to those demanding superior-quality sounds, so whether you’re a composer, DJ, keyboardist, musician, performer, producer, or sound designer V Collection 4 definitely delivers! Shipping with over 6,000 professionally- produced presets between them, all V Collection 4 instruments are child’s play to control with an external MIDI keyboard, such as one of those from Arturia’s own KeyLab range and now — thanks to NKS® — NI’ KOMPLETE KONTROL S- Series. So surely now is a good time for registered NI users to head on over to the NI Online Shop and go grab themselves a copy of V Collection 4 for an exclusive promotional price and experience the advanced integration of NKS®.
