Arturia FX Collection 3 adds Distortion, Granular and Tape processing plugins


Arturia’s FX Collection 3 gives you even more “effects you’ll actually use”


The bundle now contains 26 effects, and has plenty to offer not only producers who are seeking that ‘vintage’ sound, but also sonic experimenters.


Dist Tube-Culture can create modern tube-like distortion and promises to breathe “life and colour” into any sound, whether via gentle saturation or more aggressive crunch.


Next, Dist Opamp-21, a contemporary reboot of a certain classic guitar pedal that can deliver amp-like harmonic detail or high-gain crunch. Both this and Dist Tube-Culture offer variable oversampling, so you can prioritise either the best audio quality or lower CPU usage.



The previously released Efx Fragments (a granular processor) and Tape Mello-Fi (December 22,21) (use it to imbue your music with Mellotron-style tape warmth) are included in the FX Collection 3, as well.


New features across all of the effects include A/B comparison, which enables you quickly and easily assess the relative merits of two different setting configurations, and improved interfaces. We’re told to expect “streamlined performance, easier preset browsing, smoother loading times”.


When it comes to native plugin bundles that emulate classic studio effects, Arturia FX Collection is right up with the best of them, and version 3 is set to keep it there.


FX Collection 3 runs in VST/AU/AAX formats on PC and Mac, and is available now priced at €299 (regular price €399). Existing Arturia users can log into their accounts to discover their personalised introductory offer, which will apply until 7 July.
