Pigments 2 Granular Engine

Changes in Pigment 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: Arturia has 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: New interface, MPE capability, new undo/redo functionality and enhanced modulation bar await you.
  • New Presets: Hundreds of breathtaking new sounds that show off the new features, for you to explore and use in your tracks.
