Arturia has released Pigments 3, a major new version of the polychrome instrument that spans every shade of synthesis. They say:
Pigments 3 introduces the boundless power of additive synthesis, an impressive utility engine with sub oscillator and dual noise sample players, the iconic filter from Jup-8 V, 4 incredible new FX including a multiband compressor, and so much more.
Combined with unparalleled DSP performance, a revamped audio routing system, and its signature vibrant visual workflow, Pigments 3 sets the new softsynth standard; a producer's playground, a composer's workhorse, and a sound designer's dream.
New in Pigments 3:
- Harmonic engine - detailed additive synthesis with up to 512 partials, dual formant filters that can be morphed from A to B, odd and even harmonic customization, and various colorful ways to modulate partials.
- 3rd Utility engine - add an extra oscillator layer and up to 2 noise sample layers to Pigments' dual-engine sound for extra depth and sonic color.
- 64 new wavetables, bringing the total to 164.
