I've just installed the new 5.1 update.

MUCH better, thanks Arturia - my KeyLab Mkii feels like it's integrated again now (have just upgraded to V8 as a result = lots of new instruments to learn  ;D)

"We are releasing a new version of Analog Lab very soon that improves the keylab workflow, and also the performances of the browsing (and it's really better)"

This is very welcome news - thanks Arturia for listening to users

Hi all,
We are releasing a new version of Analog Lab very soon that improves the keylab workflow, and also the performances of the browsing (and it's really better) ! Hope you'll like it

In Analog Lab 4 there are knobs like 'Cutoff freq', which corresponds with the description on many softsynths and the text on the Keylab MKII keyboards. In Analog Lab 5 I see things like 'Brightness' instead of 'Cutoff freq', even when I choose to edit the instrument. Is there a setting to get the more technical terms that correspond to the synth itself and the Keylab MKII back below the instrument?

I am about to buy my first Arturia product and was wondering if there's an upgrade price from AL4 to ALV and if there is one, how much is it

I just wanted to join the gang here and vent about how much I dislike version V. I find the whole look of it so chunky and childish. And like others have said the integration with hardware like the mkii is pretty awful. Just wanted to put that here in the hope that Arturia learns from the feedback.

I have to agree with all the general criticism of Analog Lab V, it's a user experience nightmare, particularly for those users (like me) who have invested in Arturia controller hardware (KeyLab Mkii) for the integration between hardware and software. Operating it from the keyboard is now completely broken - even for simple things, like changing patch categories, let alone the editing controls. I'm glad I haven't upgraded yet to V collection 8, and I won't until those new instrument's patches are presented in anything like a useful way.

Please - Arturia - listen to your users, this needs attention!

I have not worked on LabV a lot so far but I can comment the following when comparing with Lab4:

LABV plus:
- I prefer the overall  ''black look'', more modern, but not the home page
- Like the RHS set up window
- studio window is good
- Keyb setting quick access (bottom screen) is better, specially when using 2 controllers (my old loved Yamaha KX8 piano..)

LAB4 plus
- I have a Keylab MKII and find it better integrated with lab4 then labV, especially for the direct instrument type selection 9 buttons. These are not the same in labV. Will there be a way to remap those the way we want?
- Samething actually for all the premaped knobs and sliders names / fonctions, They were a perfect match on Lab4. I wish we will eventually be able to map them the sameway. I found that pretty good to actually rely on the keyboard and not always on screen. with LabV, premaping is different. no true ADSR

That's it so far

Hi,
To clarify your last comment @MajorFubar, if you activate your AL4 licence you'll see all AL4+ALV presets in ALV. There was a bug when we first released ALV that prevented to access them (you had to have a VCollection license). This has been fixed in the first ALV hotfix !
Yes, I had realised that's why you haven't replaced AL4 with AL5 for existing users, so they can still access all their AL4 presets.

Thanks for the feedback, we realise the new browser can be disorienting for AL4 users, and we are facing performance issues due to the increasing number of presets and the increasing number of instruments in V Collection.
We are working on both subjects to make sure all AL4 users transition to ALV. To make AL4 as fast as it is took a lot of time and iterations. With ALV we give it a fresh start to make it more welcoming to new users but we need to make sure it is also a step up for previous users.

Although I don't love the browser I can live with it. I do like the Explore page and would like it even more if I could set it as the default view rather than the Home page. I also like that the dark colour scheme has been carried through to the controls area.

As a Keylab MkII user what I see as the biggest step backwards is the change to the default parameter mapping. Whilst I appreciate that I can change the parameters for a specific preset I don't want to have to work through every preset in my library just to get sensible mapping, that will then undoubtedly get overwritten at the next update.

Given that knobs 5-8 on the Keylab are labelled Param 1 to Param 4 surely these would have been the ideal ones to map to the 4 new Macro parameters?

Or is Arturia going to provide new overlays free of charge?

Maybe I'm in the minority but I prefer the look and feel of ALV.
Shame about the genocide you committed on the number presets available to users not in possession of V Collection: down from >6500 to ~2000. Though I can see why you did it. Actually I'm surprised you didn't do it sooner. It took you about four years to suss that you were haemorrhaging V Collection sales to people who quickly realised they need only buy Analog Lab to gain access to all of V Collection's presets in one convenient app at half the price.

The first and default option when you load Analog Labs V presents the home page with the humungous icons. If you don't like that, you can click the "Explore" option right under home on the left side bar menu.

In the Explore mode, you have drop down boxes for Instruments, Types, Styles, Banks and Designers.

Looking for your custom presets? I stored my presets using what I started with and my initials. I use search bar to find everything with my initials. AFter that, if you click "designer" a sixth choice will appear directly to the right of "designer" that says how many are FGM presets. Had to use my middle initial otherwise, I would always find "frequency modulation" tags haha. Click it and you get your full list.

If you're only interested in your presets that use say the Stage 73, then you can use the Types filter in addition to get to it quickly. The types drop down won't show instruments from Arturia which you never used as that particular designer.

It seems powerful for searching, but I'm just getting the hang of it. So far,I like the new "A1" interface better.

I will say, I am having a hard time trying to use the sliders on my Deepmind 12 synth to control the Arturia Juno, but that's a challenge for another day  . . . .
