Arturia updates Pigments to v3.5


Arturia has updated Pigments to version 3.5. The new version includes significant enhancements. Here's what they say:

The free update launches Pigments into a new era of sound, exploring the intricate colors, textures, and energies at the frontiers of electronic music production, from trap to grime to future bass.

What's new:

  • 3.5 introduces cross modulation between engines 1 and 2. Either engine can be used as a modulation source, with a number of parameters to customize for wild harmonics, unusual waveforms, and extreme sonic results.
  • Pigments 3.5's new Distortion Module combines 16 modes of distortion with built-in filtering, for everything from bubbling germanium fuzz to jagged wavefolding, soft saturation or pure filth.
  • Expanded Comb Filter.
  • Pigments' comb filter now comes with 3 new damped modes; LP6, BP6, and HP6. These filter out certain frequencies in the feedback loop for unique sounds like ambient plucks, shimmering bowed leads, and much more.
  • Apple M1 compatibility for Apple's next-generation M1 processors, ensuring flawless Pigments performance on the latest macOS machines.
  • Pigments 3.5 features dozens of new wavetables inspired by molecular structures, mineral textures, and aggressive modern timbres.
  • The enhanced Sample Engine Browser now features subfolders and one-click sample preview.
  • A number of subtle menu redesigns and workflow improvements designed to streamline sound design process.
  • Pigments 3.5 introduces 150 new patches exploring the massive potential of new features like CrossMod, Comb Filter, and more.

To mark the release of Pigments 3.5, Arturia has designed 3 exclusive sound banks, each containing 150 presets, dedicated to the pure, exhilarating energy of today's modern electronic music elite: capture the huge sounds of trap, grime, future bass, house, and more:

  • Bass Thermal:
    • Superheated sounds of grime, drum & bass, and dubstep.
    • Heavy, bass, distorted, rhythmic.
  • Trap Chemical:
    • Mesmerizing shades of trap, cloud rap, and drill.
    • Atmospheric, emotive, pumping, metallic.
  • EDM Kinetic:
    • The energetic & vibrant momentum of house and future bass.
    • Happy, deep, ambient, melodic.

Pricing: For existing Pigments users, this update is free of charge. You'll also be able to get the exclusive. The Energy Triad sound banks will be available with 3 new Sound Banks for 29,99€/$ until January 6th 2022.

For new Pigments users, the latest version is available to buy at 99€/$ (worth 199€/$), with the Energy Triad Pack included at no additional cost.

Really cool update to the already great synth. The new distortion effect is really cool with 16 modes and built in filter.
Of course the cross modulation (crossmod) is really great for more advanced sound design.

Here is a quick overview coving the new stuff.
