Pigments 2 Released

Pigments is a hugely versatile software synth that combines virtual analog, wavetable, sampling, and granular synthesis all in one instrument. See also our Pigments an Innovate Synth by Arturia Review where we did review version 1.

Just one year on from releasing Pigments, a powerful twin-engine software synth, Arturia has given the instrument a major update. Pigments version 2 introduces impressive new features such as sample playback, granular synthesis, a revamped sequencer, a new filter, delay effect, and new presets to show off all these new abilities.

Pigments 2 makes advanced modulations seem like child’s play, so you can bring your sounds to life with animations, sequences, macros, and bring it all together with incredible effects. Pigments hits the perfect balance of sounding incredible and having hugely powerful features, while at the same time being intuitive and easy to use.

What’s new in Pigments Version 2

New Sample Engine 
Explore hundreds of samples, import your own, load them into one of 6 different slots with 6 playback modes. Loop, edit, and bring them to life with Pigments’ modulation abilities. 

New Granular Mode 
Add another level to your sound design by transforming samples into granular synth patches at the touch of a button, adjust the density, envelope, size, and exciting randomization parameters. 

New Sequencer 
The in-built sequencer now lets you apply randomness in a non-destructive way, letting you always return back to where you started, perfect for live performance and improvisation. 

New Filter and Delay 
We’ve added the iconic sound of the Buchla Easel low pass gate and a space-age tape echo to Pigments’ sonic arsenal, for some seriously nice warping, contorting analog flavor. 

Refined Features 
What would an update be without little improvements here and there? New interface, MPE capability, new undo/redo functionality and enhanced modulation bar await you.

New Presets 
To show off the new features, our team of heroic sound designers has created hundreds of breathtaking new sounds for you to explore and use in your tracks. 

Pigments version 2 is available as a free update to all Pigments owners. To update, they simply need to run the update in the Arturia Software Center.  Exclusive deals will be available for existing Arturia customers and V Collection owners.
