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 Synth 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

MPE compatibility as well. Kiiinda glad I didn't jump on Straylight during the Black Friday sale now.

Looks good....and for 99 intro as well. Maybe worth to demo again.

Out of nowhere o.O! We have a new contender!

Hmm, on the other hand, I already have enough regular synths, and it will be difficult to beat Padshop 2 when it comes to granular sound.

*checks VST synth folder*

Damn I already own 19 synths lol. But £59 for this or £73 for the Icarus 2 upgrade... I need to stop at some point.

Sadly i cannot demo it. I hope they sort it out since the demo time is running but it won´t update to v.2 and always jumps back to the previous one.

I'm glad I didn't check their software center popup last night or I probably wouldn't have gotten any sleep. Can't wait to get home and update Pigments now.

It's become my go-to synth unless I'm looking for a specific sound I know I can get more easily from something else. I skipped the VC6 -> VC7 upgrade, but I definitely would have paid for this.
