Experiment with 3 envelopes, 3 LFOs, and 3 function generators. Assign modulators to animate your sound, and breathe life into it. Add controlled, or totally wild random changes to any parameter with a Turing probability generator. Run it through 2 filters, with any combination of iconic analog filters or modern formant and surgeon filters you want.

Scanning a matrix for the right parameter works, but it isn’t the only way. Thanks to its unique interface, Pigments doesn’t just make complex modulations easy, it makes them fun. This is a new approach to building sounds.

Making a Masterpiece
For 20 years, Arturia have been analyzing, emulating, and refining the most iconic synthesizers ever made.

Working with Dr Robert Moog, Cameron Jones, and many other industry legends, Arturia have built their reputation on creating world-class instruments. They turned the music industry on its head with the release of their trailblazing, affordable analogue hardware synthesizer, the MiniBrute.

With multiple awards under their belt, you could say that Arturia have done their homework. Pigments combines their passion for vintage FM and analogue sound with modern wavetable synthesis to create what is, to us, the ultimate software synth.
