["I think you'll struggle to find a better value bundle than the V-collection. I bought it over a year ago, and ever since then, it's the first group of plugin synths I turn to for inspiration. There is such a broad choice available, it's difficult to run into writers block with this under your belt" -Chris Lake](http://www.arturia.com/products/analog-classics/v-collection/overview)more

In [this interview](http://www.dmcworld.net/features/entry/features/purple-disco-machine.html), Purple Disco Machine says, “Well, mostly I work in my own studio with Cubase 7.5 as DAW and MCU Pro as a controller. For me it’s important to be able to execute all my ideas as fast as possible so I like to be as efficient as I can be. I also like to work with the Arturia Bundle or the, from time to time I use one of my analog studio tools or synths like the Juno 106 or Moog Minitaur.”more
On Four Tet's Bandcamp page for his new album, New Energy, there's a note at the bottom that says, "Created on a laptop computer using Ableton Live software to control and mix VST plugins as well as manipulations of audio recordings. Plugins used for sound generation include Omnisphere, Kontakt, Dexed and** Arturia V Collection**. "more
I like the possibilites. If you are used to the original synths I recommend you check the manual before going in. If you aren't used to you still need to go into the manuals. Arturia did a great job adding functions and modulation options.
Having the actual hardware synths included in this bundle could run you tens of thousands of dollars. This is a great place to start, it's great for inspiration, the presets are actually good, easy to use, and my go-to synths for producing anything.
