Show full description »

Origin is the first hardware synthesizer from Arturia. It is a modular system of a new generation opening innovative avenues in sound design.

Loaded with modules extracted from the best synthesizers of all time (Moog Modular, ARP 2600, CS-80, Minimoog and Prophet VS) Origin lets you combine these modules and benefit from the additional possibilities put onboard.

The result: a new type of sound accessible through an extremely intuitive interface.

Sound With an Attitude

Origin sounds like nothing else on the planet. It not only implements 'True Analog Emulation', a technology which accurately models analogue synthesizers (letting you layer up to four of these monster synths without using any of your computer’s CPU), it goes a step further...

Origin takes the concept of the analogue modular systems of the past to a new level using cutting edge digital technology. You can combine different models from different systems together, designing new synthesizers that have never before existed. Take the oscillators from the Minimoog, the filters from the CS-80 and the Bode shifter from the Moog Modular V to create your own synth.

How can Arturia manage to do this in a standalone hardware synthesizer? Origin uses two Analog Devices TigerSHARC® DSP processors that actually have more audio power than even the newest multi-core PC processors. Beside that, Arturia Origin is not a simple hardware synthesizer, it is an integrated system offering the best out of the hardware and software worlds: Arturia Origin can be used stand-alone to play live on stage and also as a plug-in with your sequencer in the studio environment.

Preset Browser

Arturia Origin offers a unique preset browser: Select your preset by type (Bass, Lead, FX...) or by instrument (Minimoog, Prophet VS, Origin Modular...), by sound deseigner or by project. And the beauty of this is that you can combine multiple criteria, searching for example for a lead sound from one specific instrument.

32-Step Sequencer

Arturia Origin comes with an analogue-style 32-step sequencer allowing you to build complex sequence patterns (made of three sub-sequences) and to change the patterns on the fly. It is an intuitive and live-oriented tool.

TigerSHARC® DSP Processors

Analog Devices TigerSHARC® DSP processors provide the highest performance density for multiprocessing applications, with peak performance well above a billion floating-point operations per second. In everyone's language, it just means that Origin provides an incredibly warm and 'phat' sound while offering the polyphony of the most recent machines.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
