Beat has introduced a free sample library for the Zampler virtual instrument and Akai MPCs.

Colours features a collection of vivid basses, leads and pads from Arturia’s newly released Pigments 4 software synthesizer instrument.

Arturia’s software flagship has left hardly anything to be desired anyway, even though the new filters and effects are of course most welcome and Pigments is even more broadly positioned as a result. In combination with the greatly expanded preset library, Pigments is thus also interesting for those who enjoy the sonic possibilities alone and do not want to tinker with the sounds down to the smallest detail. With COLOURS you get 22+2 patches from the original library.

The sound packs are free to download at the Zampler Sounds website.

Note that the Zampler sound bank is also compatible with Native Instruments Kontakt, Steinberg HALion, UVI Falcon, Bitwig Sampler, Ableton Sampler, and all other samplers that support the SFZ format.
