The No.1 Website for Pro Audio


Arturia have launched Pigments version 2, a free update for existing users, and a special intro price to celebrate the update. Just one year on from releasing Pigments, a powerful twin engine, modulatable software synth, Arturia have 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 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. "To say we’re proud is an understatement," says Sam Limier, a key player in the Arturia team responsible for bringing Pigments to life. "What started as a dream is now a reality, and we couldn't be more excited to let new and old customers alike experience Pigments like never before. The first version was audacious, but Pigments 2 brings the reality much closer to our original ambition. I look forward to hearing how musicians integrate all this granular synth and sample-shaping power with the crazy modulation stuff Pigments is capable of." What’s new in 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 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 have created hundreds of breathtaking new sounds for you to explore and use in your tracks.


Waldorf Quantum

Are there any Quantum owners who have experience of the newly updated Pigments 2? I would be grateful for your feedback, as on paper, it does seem to cover a lot of the same territory. It has a powerful sample engine with user sample import, granulator, wavetables and VA. Although of course no analogue filters....
