Pigments has announced its latest software synthesizer Pigments, a hybrid “polychrome” instrument that features hugely powerful, cutting-edge wavetable synthesis alongside Arturia’s award-winning virtual analog technology.
After spending 20 years analyzing and emulating the best synthesizers ever made, they have now used their expertise to create an original, uniquely “Arturia” software synthesizer.
Pigments offers exceptional sound thanks to its hugely powerful architecture and lightning-fast workflow that makes complex modulations easy, fast, and fun.
Arturia promises that while Pigments can sound like other synths, no other synth can sound like Pigments. It is truly a 21st century instrument that will become the go-to choice for all producers, sound designers, and synth-fans alike thanks to its extraordinary features and tempting price.
Pigments has some colorful tricks up its sleeve. In fact, it can do things other synthesizers simply cannot do. These include:
Scale quantized pitch modulations to build complex melodic sequences.
Continuous unison controls that can be modulated, with classic and chord modes.
Extensive waveshaping options for the wavetable oscillator, with great aliasing control.
The usual modulation sources and some more unconventional ones like the Turing and Binary random generators.
Powerful gate/retrig handling for modulators. Perfect to inspire unusual rhythmic sequences or self-generating patches.
Polyrhythmic sequencer with a strong emphasis on randomness, with scale control to remain musical.
Two engines in parallel
Virtual Analog triple osc engine
Complex Wavetable engine
Classic filter types from V Collection instruments
Modern filter types
Continuous series/parallel routing
Powerful effects section
Insert or Send routing
Advanced modulation system
Graphical editing, source-based or destination-based.
Envelopes, LFOs, Function generators, Random src, …
Graphical representation of the most important modules
Polyrhythmic Sequencer and Arpeggiator
Create complex, custom and evolving sequences/arps
Extensive factory preset library
Pigments 2 comes with a completely new Sample Engine. It provides hundred of interesting sounds, six sample slots to work with, six different playback modes, looping and deep editing capabilities.
Sample Engine has a built in Granular Synthesis mode. This allows for a very deep sampling manipulation by playing around with individual grains. There are many controls to shape the sound such as Density, Envelope, Size and many randomization parameters as well. All of those are possible to modulate within the Mod Matrix, providing the user with another great sound design tool.
The sequencer has a revamped Random mode. It does not permanently overwrite the sequence anymore, instead it adds deviation to the programmed value. Therefore it is possible to go back to a non-random sequence. With a 100% random value, the sequence is completely random, as expected.
Pigments 2 introduces a new LowPass Gate filter mode. It can behave as a VCA, a Filter or both at the same time. The gate can be modulated by the Engine modulators for AM or FM effects. The sound produced is similar to the Buchla Easel Low Pass Gate.
A new Tape Echo effect that is based on the Delay Tape-201 effect from Arturia. Comes with Saturation, delay times untill 1000ms, various sync types: such as Time, Binary Dotted, Triples and Stereo Width as well.
New design, MPE capability, Undo/Redo, Unison update, enhanced Modulation Bar, updated Remap module, new presets.
