Arturia has launched Pigments 2, a free update with a new advanced sample engine, granular synthesis, tape echo effect & available with a 50% OFF discount for a limited time.

This is a nice surprise from the Arturia developers. With Pigments 2, they take the well-known wavetable synthesizer to a new level. With the built-in new sample & granular engine, very complex sounds can be designed that are not possible with classic WT synths (Massive X, Serum …).

Also new is a Buchla Easel inspired lowpass gate filter mode,  reworked sequencer with better randomization options & more. A great free update for Pigments 2, which now sets it apart from the concurrence. If you are interested in Pigments 2, you can get it now for just $99 instead of $199.

New In Pigments 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.

  1. MPE is almost a footnote in their release notes and it can be a big deal in practice. By default, MPE works with most patches as CC74 (slide) is mapped to Macro 1. So, it’s rather similar to Serum, in this respect. Haven’t found a patch which the effect very audible, though.
