Today Arturia have released a major update to their hybrid wavetable/virtual-analogue software synthesiser: Pigments. Version 1.2 is a free update for current owners and to celebrate, Arturia have also introduced a temporary fully functioning trial period for potential purchasers to try before they buy, until July 4, 2019.
The new update features (quoted from press release):
- SUPER mode. A new unison detune voice mode lets you beef up your oscillator up with the style of the famous “JP”supersaw
- Sequencer revamp. A new visual layout, with the added ability to set different clock divisions for each lane in the sequencer or arpeggiator.
- NKS Compatible. Great news for owners of Maschine or Komplete Kontrol. Pigments is now fully compliant with Native Instruments NKS control format, instantly smart-mapping key parameters.
- Extra Combinator. We’ve added a third combinator, giving you more sound-shaping potential. We’ve also introduced a new “Remap” type that lets you remap any incoming modulation source.
- Updated envelope. We’ve reduced the minimum value for the attack times, letting you achieve even sharper envelope modulation for super-nasty sounds.
- Microtuning. Want to be a bit more free with your tuning? Now you can select alternative keyboard scales, as well as import your own .scl and .tun files.
- 50 new presets. We’ve added dozens more factory preset sounds that make use of the new capabilities of the Pigments audio engine updates in version 1.2.
- The little things. On top of all the big new features, we’ve made lots of small enhancements too. New Aftertouch curves, Mod source hovering displays, integrated Filter tutorials, and bug fixes to give you the best experience ever.
