Arturia SYNCLAVIER V Software
The Arturia SYNCLAVIER V Software faithfully recreates the elite digital synthesizer/workstation that started it all, powering some of the biggest hits and film soundtracks of the early ‘80s with its unique rich, edgy sounds. Offering the immense sonic architecture, flexibility and character, the Synclavier V puts the full spectral control and power of top-flight digital synthesis at your fingertips.
The Arturia SYNCLAVIER V Software is a faithful emulation of the original SYNCLAVIER, combining Additive, FM(Frequency Modulation) and Timbre Frame synthesis. If you were to ask anyone back in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s to name the Holy Grail of synthesizers, the most revered of them all was New England Digital’s Synclavier. Its unique combination of additive synthesis and frequency modulation delivered a creative edge to the privileged few keyboardists, producers, film composers and sound designers who could afford systems that ranged from $13k to $400k. Some of those rock-solid systems are still in use today. Arturia has recreated this highly revered hit maker in partnership with original programmer Cameron Jones, delivering the immense rich textures and creative palette of this vintage instrument, while dramatically improving it to let you blaze new musical trails today with sounds never heard before.
A Legend Reborn
Arturia partnered with the original programmer of the Synclavier to bring this synth legend back to life even better than ever. Yeah… it’s all that and more.
Sounds You Will Only Find Here
There’s simply nothing else like the powerhouse sound of the Arturia Synclavier V. No synth arsenal is complete without it. There’s no hint of analog or samples here—this is the sound of unabashed digital synthesis in all its glory.

It’s especially ideal for extended pads and slow cinematic, ambient soundscapes. Plus, they’ve invested in significant updates that make the Arturia Synclavier V a thoroughly modern instrument with sounds that set it—and you—completely apart.

A Programmer’s Dream
While you’ll get tons of love from Arturia Synclavier V’s presets alone, there’s a universe of sonic adventures waiting just beneath the surface whenever you’re ready. The unique sound of the Arturia Synclavier V comes from its blend of additive and FM synthesis, with control over 24 additive harmonics on both the carrier and modulation oscillators. Where the original instrument let you mix four uniquely programmed Partials Timbres in a Timbre preset, Arturia’s recreation has twelve, boosting your creative possibilities exponentially. The Time Slice engine allows complex evolutions of the sound over time—even several minutes if you want. Programming the Arturia Synclavier V is a study in elegance. Three different interface views let you choose the depth of control that best suits your needs. The Arturia Synclavier V lets you realize the dream of an entire stunning synth orchestra with just one plugin.
Welcome To An Exclusive Club
35 years ago, most musicians never had the chance to even touch, let alone use, the most coveted instrument of the day. Now with Arturia Synclavier V, that’s history. Now you can enjoy the same creative advantage as did Michael Jackson, Tangerine Dream, Sting, Frank Zappa, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and other iconic acts. You’ll still have an exclusive instrument—you won’t find a recreation anywhere else, let alone one faithfully co-created and enhanced by the original programmer. Round out your collection with this rare digital luxury instrument once only found in universities, laboratories and elite studios.
What’s the point of unlimited power if you can’t easily harness it? The Arturia Synclavier V’s ergonomic 3-panel interface insures that you can put your hands on exactly what you need, whether you’re finding sounds while performing, exploring and tweaking during recording, or doing in-depth sound design in the studio.
A Sound All Its Own
No other instrument gives you the sonic architecture, flexibility and character of the Arturia Synclavier V Software.
Unparalleled Creative Expression
With the Arturia Synclavier V, digital synthesis meets total creative and performance expression. Sure, all synths have LFOs, but the vibrato section of the Arturia Synclavier V Software is exhaustive, giving you control over LFO attack, phase, quantizing, bias and more. Things get even more interesting when you apply the LFO to the FM harmonic oscillator that, in turn, modulates the carrier. Let that sink in for a minute! Want to take your listeners on an animated journey? Add extra energy to your pads and soundscapes with the stereo modulation section. It actually takes the form of separate linkable tremolos for each channel, making for unique spatial animation effects that will have everybody’s heads spinning. Imagine performing with expressive nuances never possible before. Press harder on the keyboard to change the amount of FM modulation. Ride the expression pedal to affect the frame speed of your Time Slices. Grab the mod wheel to rock the FM modulation ratio. These are just some examples of what’s possible when you use the modulation matrix to easily map any of your favorite MIDI controllers to dozens of sound engine parameters—discretely for each Partial Timbre. The Arturia Synclavier V Software lets you express yourself in ways that have never been possible before.
When you’re ready for full control, the Graphic Display Mode is a programmer’s playground. The Mixer page brings many of the individual sound engine controls for each of the 12 Partial Timbres together in one place so you can focus on programming without jumping between screens. Other pages let you graphically define complex envelopes for each oscillator, key ranges for each Partial Timbre, and how your sounds evolve via Time Slices. To top it off, the Effects page taps into newly added onboard effects like reverb, delay, phaser and flanger, so effects come right along for the ride with your presets. You don’t have to be a programmer to bring the power of the Arturia Synclavier V’s advanced digital synthesis to your music—but the elegance of the graphic interface may inspire you to become one.
Get ready… people are going to start asking you “What’s that sound?” Clear your schedule because the Arturia Synclavier V Software is about to inspire you to make a lot of new music—the best measure of any instrument. Created by some of the world’s top sound designers, hundreds of factory presets—including 50 Timbres from the original library—will keep you going for a long time. Simple tweaks are easy. And if programming is how you roll, your other instruments might soon start getting jealous. Whether you’re looking to trigger ambient soundscapes, compose orchestral synth opuses or just add an edge to any genre, the Arturia Synclavier V Software brings a serious update of the most coveted digital synthesizer of yesteryear to your rig and your music today.
Arturia's redesigned preset browser lets you quickly find just the sound you’re looking for.
