Last week, Arturia announced that it would be releasing updated versions of their current line of soft synths with 64-bit compatibility. In addition to this, the software has dropped in price dramatically (for some of the synths, anyway) to $99 USD, or 99 euros. If you haven't tried any of this software, it's all pretty stellar and has had rave reviews for a while, in some cases considered some of the best analog emulation-- in fact, when I upgrade my computer in the near future, some of these will be on the list of things to get.
Press release is as follows:
"Arturia announces ‘Next Generation’ Analog Classic software
