Arturia’s V Collection Tools now have native M1 Mac support
It is now much easier to use Arturia softsynths on your new MacBook. Arturia has released a free update to V Collection 8.2 that adds native support to the (currently reduced) collection for Macs with M1 processors. This should improve performance, as you might imagine, but it may also help with battery life if you need to play unplugged.
Other speed updates in the store. The update boosts the performance of 4K interfaces with a new framework, and presets from the V Collection factory libraries are now loaded up to twice as fast. You’ll also find ODDSound MTS-ESP fine-tuning compatibility for the Clavinet V, DX7 V, Piano V and Stage-73 V.
This could be an important update if you are using softsynths to make music. Arturia is known for its accurate and relatively accessible virtual tools. Both make the V Collection more applicable to M1 Macs and give you a greater incentive to rely on digital senes rather than chasing after their more expensive real-world counterparts.
