Arturia Intros Preamp & Filter Plugin Collections

Arturia has introduced two new collections of plugins for Mac & Windows.

One collection features modeled preamps, the other modeled analog filters.

3 Preamps You’ll Actually Use is a virtual collection of some coveted studio preamps.

3 Filters You’ll Actually Use takes the filter designs from three classic synthesizers and makes them available as modeled analog effects plugins.

3 Preamps You’ll Actually Use

  • 1973-Pre: a modern take on Rupert Neve’s classic solid-state pre, complete with switchable boutique transformers.
  • TridA-Pre: made famous by Trident Studio’s A Range consoles.
  • V76-Pre: modelling the classic Telefunken tube tone at the heart of the “White Album” sound, and integrating a rare shelf EQ for extra control.

3 Filters You’ll Actually Use

  • SEM-Filter: recreated from one of the earliest self-contained analog synths.
  • Mini-Filter: based on Bob Moog’s renowned ladder filter.
  • M12-Filter: modeled on Tom Oberheim’s multi-mode filter found on the Matrix-12, the plugin also features twin filters, mod osc and random generators, hugely customizable mod matrix, and programmable envelopes.

Pricing and Availability:

Both sets are available now, with intro prices through April 5th:

  • 3 Preamps You’ll Actually Use is available for $199 (normally $299)
  • 3 Filters You’ll Actually Use is available for $99 (normally $199)

  1. Only one question is the cpu usage “human” ? I have the Mini Filter a long time (free plugin) and it uses so much cpu cant really use it….

    1. I feel you. I can hardly imagine the new ones being less Cpu hungry. With computers getting faster every 6 months they will never make creating more efficient plugins a priority.

      1. I have one of the actually best processors from Intel and I have the same problem… this is why I use there mini v2 not the mini v5… I have booth but the newer version sucks too much cpu…

    1. Arturia takes a lot of time and effort to craft their plugins to be as accurate reproductions as possible but I have to agree that the price on these is off base especially post-intro pricing. I might have bought the pre-amp plugins but the extra $100 for those killed that idea.

  2. Heads up. You can get the arturia pre-amps and filter bundle for under $150 USD if you have analog lab lite. The upgrade may be even less if you have analog lab full version. In some cases I’m finding it cheaper to buy streamlined versions of software and upgrade to the fuller versions later on.

    Personally I think that the air expand 3 complete would be a better choice for me. By getting that air expand2 software free in December 2017. I’m ahead of the game a little bit. If you have air expand2. You can get complete for around $250 USD including the FX plugins. The only drawbacks are you’ll have to have an iLok account and an internet connected computer to authorize the software. Besides the killer deal you can get on that software. You get structure 2 (can sample/play exs24, wave and rex files). Synthesizers have their place in music. But it appears that air music has a boatload of analog instruments as well. To me that’s more bang for my buck.

  3. Forgot to mention while ago. If you like. You can put one audio or midi file in a project by itself along with the drums, bass or other low end instruments that plays with that section. Once I get the sound I want from the CPU hungry track. I would mute the bassy sounding tracks and mix down the CPU hungry track as a solo file. Then I’d transfer that audio file to my full mix. Works like a charm when needed.
