Polychrome Software Synthesizer

An immensely powerful wavetable and virtual analogue software synthesizer, 20 years in the making. This is Pigments, and it’s going to change the way you make music forever.

Taking that spark of imagination and transforming it into sound is the most fundamental, exhilarating part of creating music. Pigments makes that process natural, intuitive, and colourful.

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 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 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

Arturia have 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 analogue flavour.

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, Arturia's team of heroic sound designers have created hundreds of breathtaking new sounds for you to explore and use in your tracks.

Your Sound, in Living Colour

Imagine a sound, then create it.

Pigments gives you the finest elements ever found in a software instrument, letting you create pioneering, exciting, and deeply personal sounds. Laying everything out before you, Pigments lets you fully express your creativity in a way that’s never been seen before in a software instrument.

  • Intuitive, lightning-fast workflow
  • Powerful awesome-sounding architecture
  • Amazing presets from legendary artists

Pigments 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, granularize samples, and import your own sounds to warp and contort.

What you do next is up to you. Experiment with 3 envelopes, 3 LFOs, and 3 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 2 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.

“Routing” isn’t a Dirty Word

Scanning a matrix for the right parameter works, but it isn’t the only way.

Thanks to its unique interface, Pigments doesn’t just make complex modulations easy, it makes them fun. This is a new approach to building sounds.

Making a Masterpiece

For 20 years, Arturia have been analyzing, emulating, and refining the most iconic synthesizers ever made.

Working with Dr Robert Moog, Cameron Jones, and many other industry legends, Arturia have built their reputation on creating world-class instruments. They turned the music industry on its head with the release of their trailblazing, affordable analogue hardware synthesizer, the MiniBrute.

With multiple awards under their belt, you could say that Arturia have done their homework. Pigments combines their passion for vintage FM and analogue sound with modern wavetable synthesis to create what is, to us, the ultimate software synth.
