I currently have NI Komplete 12 ultimate. Im trying to recreate a lot of the vintage 80's synth sounds like the Jupiter 4 and 8. Juno etc. Can all this be accomplished within komplete and retro machines etc? or would I get a lot more out of the arturia V collection?

    I do not have V Collection, so do not know, how good it is. But I expect it will be closer to those vintage synths than NI.

    So, if it is worth buying for you heavily depends on what exactly you need. Look at NI instruments and if it will do for you, no need for V Collection. (They have discounts, so if you miss this one, there will be another sooner or later....)

    Also, there are many Reaktor ensembles simulating vintage synths. So, you may have many of them for free. Just dive into Reaktor User Library on NI pages.

    I don't know about the need to buy such expensive tools to recreate the sounds, it would be better for you to use to send your audio file, and then it will be converted into text format. Sometimes it's better to transcribe songs, sounds, to better understand what it's about.

    no you dont NEED the V collection.. but then again, we don't NEED 10% of Komplete either.. so theres

    another thought, if your focus is classic Roland sounds in particular then why not Zenology Pro from Roland?.. their models of their own gear are outstanding.. and would give a massive collection of the legendary romplers & drum machines to boot...
