Is it redundant in this case?
And isn't Diva, as a 7 or 8 years old vst is "old news"?
They are both awesome.
Not sure what you mean by "old news" - Diva does a fantastic emulation of some vintage synths and for that purpose it is still one of the best you can get.
The u-he synths are in a different league, if you ask me...
So: no, i absolutetly don't think they are redundant.
Comparing Repro to Diva i think Repro is a huge leap in terms of emulating the analogue sound.
(I still hope, there will be an updated version of the Diva filters one day...)
Still, both have quite a different character; Diva is leaning a bit more towards the softer side.
What about Zebra2? I've wanted that for so long :(
I also think U-he is in a different league than the NI offerings,these are great synths!
Zebra and Hive will be updated to Z3 and H2 pretty soon that's why they weren't updated for this sale. I am a bit surprised they didn't update Bazille for this sale,it's awesome but I guess a bit more of a niche product.
Do you you when?
Hive in about 2 months,Zebra 3 I'm not sure but from what we hear it's getting closer........
Diva is amazing. Haven't heard anything like it (well, a lot like it but not as good).
Repro 1 and 5 have some serious balls (as does Bazille).
Both amazing synths - they're in the top tier of VIs for me. I'm just disappointed you can only get the other products by buying the full bundle. I already have Diva, Repro and Color Copy and there's no 'complete my bundle' option.
Diva is so smooth and creamy. It's like jumping into a bathtub of flan.
The "old news" is refering to the talk about coming up with a Diva mk2.
For the NI limited time offer, all products included in the offer must support NKS. Zebra doesn't support NKS.
Diva 2 will happen sometime. But Zebra 3 first.
Not this year, though.
I have Repro and it's awesome. Really makes me question if there
is a reason to get hardware DSI synths. It's that good. I'm contemplating the bundle, but I would like to know if it's one bundle license or individual licenses. I would then be selling my extra copy of Repro.
You actually keep the preset packages,selling Repro is a separate thing.
I was just thinking the same thing. What does Diva do that something in the Arturia V Collection doesn't?
Seems like the answer is quality/preference.
Diva isn't redundant in any case. It's one of the best instruments you'll ever buy, and I know quite a few folks here agree with me. Don't even hesitate, total no-brainer if you want a terrific synth. Makes Arturia look a little suck (well, I can't say that about the entire Arturia line, because there are some pearls there imo).
I think LF mentioned something along the lines of "you can't really lose with U-he". As far as the synths I own (Zebra/HZ, Diva, Bazille) I completely agree.
Which of the Arturia Collection do you think are bad? And is it the sound in general or bad replication?
Not a super big fan outside a few patches from ARP, CS, Continental and Mini Vs. I've owned so much of their stuff but ended up selling most of it. I have Spark, which is probably one of their best imo.
Like I mentioned, I don't want to come down too hard on Arturia, because I can recall off the top of my head certain patches I'd rather not live without.
What I should have said was: if someone offered you the Arturia collection vs. Diva or Zebra/HZ, dive all over the u-he with a passion and vengeance heretofore unheard.
