["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.

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
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.
