Arturia Synclavier V License - Synclavier Software Synthesizer

The sheer and unprecedented additive, FM, and sampling power of the Synclavier captured the imaginations of the world’s musical elite. Synclavier V reanimates this powerhouse instrument for a palette that’s uniquely rich, edgy, and inspiring to no end.

A legendreborn

A technological marvel and status symbol, the Synclavier dwarfed literally every other synthesizer of the 1980s, in both power and price. Its unique approach to sound design is just as relevant today as it was all those decades ago.

The go-to inspiration station for Sting, Frank Zappa, Kate Bush, Michael Jackson, Chick Corea, and many others began life as an FM synth. It evolved into the first tapeless music production system long before DAWs, adding features like high-res sampling and resynthesis. Nothing got close to this Rolls-Royce of synthesizers, and with maxed-out systems fetching mid six figures, almost no one got close either. Co-created with original inventor Cameron Jones, Synclavier V changes all that.

Your Secret Weapon

No other instrument sounds like the Synclavier, even today. Synclavier V is a source of sounds and ideas as unique as your music.

Beyond the Original

We multiplied the sound-generation capabilities of the original three times over, building a hot-rod that was impossible in hardware.

Exclusive Club

Original Synclaviers are still in use even today because the pros love their sound. Join their ranks without the cost or headaches.

Sonic Chameleon

Combining additive, digital, and FM synthesis with unique sampling features, Synclavier V can truly produce any sound you may have in your mind’s ear.

An experimentgone right

Born of a college team-up between musicians and engineers, the Synclavier started as a lab experiment and then became the most coveted synth in the music industry.

At prestigious Dartmouth College in the ’70s, students Cameron Jones and Sydney Alonso signed on to a research project with professors Jon Appleton (music) and Frederick Hooven (engineering). The goal: Make a computer behave like a musical instrument.

The prototype Dartmouth Digital Synthesizer became the Synclavier I. This used the FM technique pioneered by Dr. John Chowning of Stanford University, which would see widespread commercial success in the Yamaha® DX7.
