Imagine a sound, then create it.

Arturia Pigments 3 (download) gives you some of the finest elements ever found in a software instrument, letting you create pioneering, exciting and deeply personal sounds. Laying everything out before you, Pigments 3 lets you fully express your creativity in a way that’s never been seen before in a software instrument. Pigments 3 features a twin audio engine, letting you mix virtual analog and wavetable oscillators with a sample engine to create the perfect starting point for your patch. You can even morph wavetables, granulize samples and import your own sounds to warp and contort. What you do next is up to you.

What’s New in Pigments 3

  • New Sample Engine: Explore hundreds of samples, import your own, load them into one of six different slots with six playback modes. Loop, edit and bring them to life with Pigments 3’s 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 built-in 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: Arturia has added the iconic sound of the Buchla Easel low pass gate and a space-age tape echo to Pigments’s sonic arsenal, for some seriously nice warping, contorting analog flavor.
  • Refined Features: Pigments 3 features a new interface, MPE capability, new undo/redo functionality and enhanced modulation bar.
  • New Presets: To show off the new features, Arturia has created hundreds of breathtaking new sounds for you to explore and use in your tracks.

Arturia Pigments 3 lets you experiment with three envelopes, three LFOs and three function generators. Assign modulators to animate your sound, and breathe life into it. Add controlled, or totally wild random changes to any parameter with a Turing probability generator. Run it through three filters, with any combination of iconic analog filters or modern formant and surgeon filters you want. Process your patch with exciting contemporary effects like wavefolder and multifilter, or vintage studio reverbs, tape delays and EQs. With this Pigments 3 download, the possibilities are endless.
