Arché Collection...thoughts?

Only Widows 10 is supported. I know that their hardware requires Win 10. Could there be a reason that the plug-in wouldn’t work with Win 7 when used with another controller?

I have purchased but didn’t have a chance to test it yet.
I will let you know once I have some experience with it.

Many thanks!! Can you tell us if this touché se works with spitfire vst? It would be awesome for expression!
I have purchased Archè only. I could not use it yet because authorization is not working for me.
I have sent a message to technical support a couple of days ago but it seems those guys are not very focused on this business.

I saw that Arche is a vst. But you need a touché to play it. Aslo touché runs through lié(which host the vst), so if you have not the touché i'm afraid you can't play it....

Their website is not clear about it or I missed the information. However, the manual shows how to assign the controls to any midi cc via midi learn which makes me believe it is not necessary to have Touché.

Yeah, that makes sense. The Touche has to be some sort of midi controller. EDIT: I see, Touche is the hand device. I thought it was a string thingy

That might be a little hasty, seems like you posted that you hadn't even loaded it up Monday night, and it's only Wednesday evening - I can't imagine you've been waiting long enough for support that you're ready to throw in the towel lol.

The manual clearly indicates you can map any midi controller to Arche´. Also the video shows controlling the bowing with the mod wheel (CC1). SO it seems it should be possible without Touche´.

I played the combo of Arche and Touché at NAMM and it was quite impressive. Startling, really - one of those rare goosebumps moments. Will it fool a violinist? Probably not, but who cares? It will let ME create sounds that could not be created by any other electronic means. On one real-time pass even Mr. Fumblefingers like me can articulate and execute a trembling, jiggling, expressive passage that would take me an hour to explain and get recorded correctly with a real player, or take two hours of drawing controller events and keyswitches with Sample Modelling, Synful, AAS, or any other VI, whether it's PM or samples. The combo of Arche and Touche is greater than the sum of the parts. If you buy just Arche you're missing out - just think of Touche as the dongle you need to (properly) run Arche.

Of course, I won't be trying to simulate a real virtuoso playing a well known classical piece - I'll be using it to create that sort of hybrid middle-ages-meets-modern thing you might hear from Nathan Barr or on Trevor Morris's Vikings score. Tentative, exposed, trembling, expressive - even if its only two notes.

A buddy has been on board with Touche since day one and he won't stop bugging me to get one. Well, now I have a good reason: Arche.

Watch as many demo videos as you can and show me another easier / cheaper / quicker way to do what Touche + Arche can do.

I know I say this phrase a lot, but.... add to cart.

Couldn’t agree more. I just had the same experience at their NAMM booth and came away quite impressed. As a Roli Seabord 49 user ( which i simply love) I found the Touché to be quite user friendly and responsive . Got one arriving in the mail tomorrow and will download Arche soon thereafter.

Interesting. It sounds violin-ish and cello-ish and ain't going to fool anybody but as Charlie said that's not really the point. Anything that make getting a genuine 'human touch' easier is a win, whatever the sound.

Is any more expressive than Audio Modeling or even Reaktor Serenade? The sound is really...weird. I wonder what would happen if they incorporated violin IRs.

Yes, that's an alto flute
I don't own Arche (yet), but I have the Touché and that thing is bloody good. It can add a whole lot of different dimensions to your sound to be honest.
