I'd like to try this out but I have been away from software for half a decade and cannot really dig Arturia's sayings on the need of dongle. They talk about a physical as well as virtual dongle. I have always avoided the physical ones, but what does Virtual mean? Is it the same as when Reason 11 is activated by harddisk instead of ignition key?

Kind Regards

No dongle needed of any type, simple on line activation just the once...a good copy protection system in my opinion.

Could almost be seen as an alternative to Omnisphere?
If Arturia would work on their library of samples, then yeah absolutely - I can see Pigments becoming a serious alternative to Omnisphere. In terms of effects and synth engine stuff - Pigments is almost already there. Now they just need a Burning Piano or two... :lol:

It seems to be a great update, installed yesterday but not tested yet.
Thanks Arturia for the free update :tu:

I found the banks!
Go to Presets, then to Store. You will see 5 banks. Click on the clouds to install them. That's it! :D
This didn't work for me. I just see a price to purchase and not a download icon. Are those banks supposed to be free with the update?

They were supposed to be free for those of us who were first time buyers of Pigments. I haven't checked this morning but as of yesterday those presets did not show up in "Owned Banks" although strangely enough the Wavetables from those sets were available for use after manually installing the soundsets.

He means Pigments is no way a serious alternative to Omnisphere. I don't know because i haven't used Omnisphere.

Are there any extra samples included with those 500 presets or do they just use what's already available?
As far as I can tell there's no extra content included with the presets. But the update itself did include new wavetables.

I can't tell if you're being serious that Pigments could be an alternative to Omnisphere.

Obviously they're completely different instruments. :shrug:

There are some new Wavetables included in the Spectrum soundsets.

Ah, OK. Cool. I'll have to look closer.
