Plughugger latest soundset is a modern collection of sounds for the Pigments 2 software synthesizer by Arturia.

Ultra Pigments is based on sampled recordings from the legendary Virus TI synthesizer made by German synthmaker Access Music. Plughugger sampled a large selection of its oscillators: from raw waveforms and intervals, to FM, clean wavetables, as well as drums and experimental wavetable sweeps.

From those sounds Plughugger recreated the sound and feel of the Virus TI in Pigments, but also used the synthesis capabilities of Pigments to take the sound to places you couldn’t normally go with the original hardware, such as layering, the unison engine capable of chords and granular synthesis.

Apart from the regular sounds, Plughugger also added a handful of percussive drum sounds from the Virus, as well as some vocal recordings made by a speech synthesizer just for the fun of it.

All sounds are properly tagged in the preset browser and all four Macro knobs are assigned to easily change the feel of the sounds.

Ultra Pigments contains 160 new sounds:

  • 29 Bass sounds.
  • 12 Drum / Percussion.
  • 7 Effect sounds.
  • 39 Pads and synth strings.
  • 34 Sequences.
  • 29 Synth and Lead sounds.
  • 10 Vocal sounds.

The soundset is available at Plughugger at an introductory price of 9.90 EUR until February 7th, 2021 (regular 19.90 EUR). Use coupon code ULTRAPIGMENTS at the checkout to get the discount.
