Synthesizer V Studio Purchase Guide

On June 26, 2020 together with AHS Co., Ltd., we announced Synthesizer V Studio, the largest-ever upgrade to Synthesizer V. The full event is covered on our YouTube channel.

 

This post is a summary for customers interested in purchasing or upgrading to Synthesizer V Studio from a previous version. Due to logistics and the ongoing pandemic situation, shipping times could vary. We will keep the information updated.

 

Versions


Synthesizer V Studio will come in two versions: the free Synthesizer V Studio Basic and the paid Synthesizer V Studio Pro.

The Basic version covers most features from the previous generation Synthesizer V Editor but is limited to 3 tracks and up to 2 cores for background rendering; the Pro version removes these limits and has extra features such as Auto Pitch Tuning, Alternative Pronunciations, Lua/JavaScript Scripting, etc. Detailed information can be seen on our product page. Note that paid voices can be used in Synthesizer V Studio Basic, though without the advanced features.

 

Download for Synthesizer V Studio Basic will become available on July 31, 2020.

 

From AHS


For Japanese and most international customers, the recommended way of getting Synthesizer V Studio Pro is through AHS Store. The product comes in two formats: package version and download version. The contents are the same but the package version is under various campaigns.

A starter pack version is also available through AHS: Synthesizer V Studio Pro bundled with any 2nd generation Synthesizer V voice of choice, at a price cheaper than purchasing the packages separately.

The download version is the only version accessible to overseas customers at the moment. However on the plus side, the checkout process is well supported in English.

 

The followings are pre-tax prices.

Package version – 12, 800 Yen (50% discount until Sept. 30, 2020)

Download version – 9, 800 Yen

Starter Pack (package) – 18, 000 Yen (50% discount until Sept. 30, 2020)
