Arturia have launched Pigments version 2, a free update for existing users, and a special intro price to celebrate the update.
Just one year on from releasing Pigments, a powerful twin engine, modulatable software synth, Arturia have given the instrument a major update. Pigments version 2 introduces impressive new features such as sample playback, granular synthesis, a revamped sequencer, a new filter, delay effect, and new presets to show off all these new abilities.

Pigments version 2 is available as a free update to all Pigments owners. To update, they simply need to run the update in the Arturia Software Center.
Exclusive deals will be available for existing Arturia customers and V Collection owners.
“To say we’re proud is an understatement,” says Sam Limier, a key player in the Arturia team responsible for bringing Pigments to life. “What started as a dream is now a reality, and we couldn’t be more excited to let new and old customers alike experience Pigments like never before. The first version was audacious, but Pigments 2 brings the reality much closer to our original ambition. I look forward to hearing how musicians integrate all this granular synth and sample-shaping power with the crazy modulation stuff Pigments is capable of.”

What’s new in version 2?

  • 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 Granular 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.
  • Refined Features
    What would an update be without little improvements here and there? New interface, MPE capability, new undo/redo functionality and enhanced modulation bar await you.
  • New Presets
    To show off the new features, our team of heroic sound designers have created hundreds of breathtaking new sounds for you to explore and use in your tracks.
