Arturia Releases Pigments 1.2, Free Update
Arturia has updated Pigments to 1.2, a free update to their hybrid wavetable and virtual analog synthesizer that introduces a variety of new features and workflow improvement including NKS compatibility, a new sound store within Pigments for selecting presets, a new unison detune voice mode and more. Pigments will be available for free until July 4th so that users can try out this new update.
What’s New In Pigments 1.2
- NKS Compatible: Do you use Maschine or Komplete Kontrol? Pigments is now ready to rock with Native Instruments NKS control format.
- Introducing Sound Store: Find exciting new preset sound banks from within Pigments. New themed banks are being added all the time!
- Super Mode: A new unison detune voice mode lets you beef any wave 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.
- 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.
- Extra Combinator: We’ve added a third combinator, giving you more sound-shaping potential. We’ve also introduced a new “Map” type that lets you remap any incoming modulation source.
- 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.
