Do I really want to get the "Spectrum Sound Pack" to get a full Pigments 3? Please tell me.

Can I get it from somewhere else other than Arturia? I want to pay $ not €.
Unfortunately, the currency seems to be set automatically depending on your location. For me, it is USD. But there was an instance when I had upgraded to VC7 using split payment where I was charged in EUR, which was likely an issue only with the split payment option. As others said, preset banks are only available through Arturia store.

When I bought Pigments 3 today it came with the pack and it was a flat $69 not euros like stated on the website.
After updating for free I have a bank called Pigments 3.0 with 200 presets. A lot of weird sounds. One preset is called Unicorn Fart. :roll: If the "Spectrum Sound Pack" is similar it's probably non-essential.

And there's another Plugin Alliance sale... Two plugins for $49.99 - but THIRTEEN plugins that are NOT included in sale. I've been waiting to buy Big Al for $49.99 but it seems that I still have to wait. :(

Makes me wonder: people are actually paying $249/$299/$329/$349 for some plugins since it seems to take months before those new/newish plugins go on sale?

And you can combine it with the $25 voucher. So nearly all PA plugins cost $15 (including tax) now.

I'm curious why the SSL 9000J is not included, while the 9000E is

Some of these 200 presets sound gorgeous. I was going through them last night. For example Radio Daze. Modern Piano, and Siren, in the first 25 presets. I didn't go through the whole list.

It's just because it is newer and probably one of their best sellers.

Note that at the moment, anyway, the BYOME + Triad bundle counts as one plugin, so with FOREVER-49 you could get BYOME, Triad, and (say) Metric AB for $49.99. That's a heckuva deal.

I'm getting Byome/Triad bundle & Phil's Cascade, for not much more than £20 with $25 voucher!

You just need to change your country in your Arturia profile.
