Description : A multifaceted software synthesizer.
A very powerful virtual analogue table-to-wave synthesizer is Pigments and it will change the way music is created. Turning a spark of imagination into sound is the most important, exciting part of making music. Pigments makes this process natural, intuitive and vibrant.
Imagine the sound, then create it – Pigments offers the best elements ever found in a software tool, allowing you to create innovative, exciting and deep sounds. Pigments allows you to fully express your creativity like never before in a software tool.
Pigments has a dual audio engine that allows you to mix virtual analog and tabular wave oscillators to create the perfect starting point for your patch. You can even modify wave tables or import your own. What you get next is up to you. Experiment with 3 envelopes, 3 LFOs, and 3 functional oscillators. Assign modulators to revitalize your sound and breathe life into it. Add controlled or completely unexpected random changes to any parameter using the Turing probability generator. Pass the signal through 2 filters with any combination of iconic analog filters or modern format filters. Process your patch with exciting modern effects such as wavefolder and multifilter or vintage studio effects of reverb, delay and equalizers.
Modulation – Thanks to its unique interface, Pigments not only simplifies complex modulations, but makes them extremely simple. This is a new approach to making sounds.
Creating a masterpiece – For 20 years, we have been analyzing, emulating and refining the most iconic synthesizers ever created. Working with Robert Moog, Cameron Jones and many other industry legends, we have earned our reputation by creating world-class tools. We turned the music industry upside down with the release of our first-class, affordable analog MiniBrute hardware synthesizer.
Pigments combines our passion for vintage FM and analog sound with modern table-wave synthesis, and we have created the best, in our opinion, software synthesizer.
New in Version :
Sample Engine has a built in Granular Synthesis mode. This allows for a very deep sampling manipulation by playing around with individual grains. There are many controls to shape the sound such as Density, Envelope, Size and many randomization parameters as well. All of those are possible to modulate within the Mod Matrix, providing the user with another great sound design tool.
The sequencer has a revamped Random mode. It does not permanently overwrite the sequence anymore, instead it adds deviation to the programmed value. Therefore it is possible to go back to a non-random sequence. With a 100% random value, the sequence is completely random, as expected.
Pigments 2 introduces a new LowPass Gate filter mode. It can behave as a VCA, a Filter or both at the same time. The gate can be modulated by the Engine modulators for AM or FM effects. The sound produced is similar to the Buchla Easel Low Pass Gate.
A new Tape Echo effect that is based on the Delay Tape-201 effect from Arturia. Comes with Saturation, delay times untill 1000ms, various sync types: such as Time, Binary Dotted, Triples and Stereo Width as well.
New design, MPE capability, Undo / Redo, Unison update, enhanced Modulation Bar, updated Remap module, new presets.
