Compact Organ Echoes.

The essence of ’60s go-go and ’80s new wave,
nothing sounds quite like the Farfisa combo organ.

The Farfisa hit the pop stage several years before synthesizers. Portable and polyphonic, its reedy voice was heard everywhere.

Thanks to Farfisa V, it never really went away. Our TAE® analog modeling technology recreates every nuance of the Farfisa Compact DeLuxe. How far did we turn up the microscope? To the level of how the vintage circuits passed electrons around, which gets way more realistic than even the best samples. Whether you’re after a retro-cool infusion or something completely different, Farfisa V is an instant inspiration generator.

Electric Surfboard

Click a few tabs and grab the sunny sound of Sam the Sham’s surf-rock classic “Wooly Bully.” Click a few more and you’re in the ’80s with Blondie, the B-52s, and Talking Heads.

All the Sound

All the Farfisa’s tone generators and controls plus modeled FX make for a production-ready retro organ sound all inside the plug-in.

Keep It Simple — Or Not

Work only with the controls of the original, or open up the Advanced panel and a galaxy of new sonic possibilities including additive synthesis. (Yes, you read that right.)

Make It Yours

The Farfisa’s wide tonal range rose above stereotypes and impressed music fans across styles. With Farfisa V, so will your productions.

The Italian Stallion

When Farfisa started producing combo organs in 1964, they knew who their customers were: mods and rockers who didn’t want to lug living room furniture to the gig. Their aggressive but cheerful sound perfectly fit the spirit of the era, and it’s every bit as evocative today.

That sound came from transistor circuits that were relatively inexpensive to manufacture, not to mention lightweight. Farfisas looked cooler than living room organs, too, and projected a sense of the now and the future. Play that sound today, and you’re not just playing “retro.” You’re playing what retro musicians thought the future would sound like. Guess that means they were right!


Time Capsule

Everything But the Smell of Dust on Hot Electronics.

Farfisa V reproduces all the controls of the Compact DeLuxe, then adds retro-tastic FX and amp simulation.

Find Your Voice

Choose from the beige tabs in the main voice section, the core of the Compact DeLuxe tone.

Green Machine

The green Multi-Tone Booster tabs add an alternative set of voices for even more goodness.

Home Bass

Play an independent, adjustable bass voice from either the bottom octave or bottom two octaves of the keyboard.

Animation Station

Where we’re going, we don’t need rotary — thanks to Farfisa V’s wonderfully woozy vibrato and tempo-syncable tremolo.


Farfisas had a lever that players could move with their knees. You can make it intensify the Multi-Tone Booster or bring in a wah effect, then work it with a MIDI controller.

Stompbox Heaven

Expand Farfisa V’s sound and your musical mind with 5 pedal effects plus an in-your-face combo amp. We model them like we do our instruments: with crazy perfectionism.

Wait, This Is An Organ Plug-In?

Arturia obsessed over authenticity and realism. Then They Sort of Went Full Mad Scientist.

The Farfisa had just enough proto-synth features to make players wish for more. Using the modeling power of TAE®, we realized our vision for what could have happened if its designers had anything like today’s resources.
