V Collection vs. individual instruments

Before I invest in V Collection X, is there any difference between the instruments in the collection and the instruments that are also sold separately? I understand for example the ones in Analog Lab are a bit crippled in functionality and presets, but is there any difference between the individually sold instruments and the ones in the collection?

Nope. Exactly the same.
Additionally, buying the entire V Collection is now the only way to get the true ‘full’ Analog Lab. Both of the retail versions of Analog Lab do not have the full suite of V Collection presets. This was a decision Arturia made circa Analog Lab V3 for kinda obvious reasons that it took them three versions of Analog Lab to finally suss out.

Hey @sod1102 welcome to The Sound Explorers Forum

@Jon_Vincent is correct in what they say about each instrument and the functionality of ALV.
