["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
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
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

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.
I suppose it was just a matter of time before a software developer bridged the gap between the lush warmth of analog swells filling the room and the plasticity of algorithmic software synths, Arturia did this in spades. I was fortunate enough to check my email during the 2018 Black Friday sale and to my astonishment, They were offering the entire collection for the price of the Arp 2600 that I committed myself to. Now, I am not a mathmagician in any form or function but this was promising to be on the up and up. Since then in all honesty I've not really dived into the Buchla as I had anticipated, Rather I fell in amazment with the Yamaha CS-80 and on proper monitors sounds SICK AF.
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.
