Arturia Pigments: A 21st-century Soft Synth

A massively powerful wavetable and virtual analog software synth two decades in the making, Arturia Pigments is a soft synth like no other. Featuring cutting-edge wavetable synthesis, granular synthesis, harmonic synthesis, and Arturia’s meticulous analog modeling, the Pigments soft synth launches a new era for the company. Arturia has spent the past 20 years analyzing and reinventing the most legendary synthesizers ever produced, so the time was ripe for a soft synth with a powerful architecture and lightning-fast workflow that makes crafting modern sounds with complex modulations quick, easy, and fun. While Arturia Pigments may stand on the shoulders of some of the greatest synths of the past, it delivers wholly modern avant-garde sounds, features, and playability. With its incredible sonic prowess and remarkable ease of use, Arturia Pigments is a groundbreaking go-to synth for producers, sound designers, and synth lovers alike.


Wavetable, analog, granular, and harmonic engines: a quadruple threat

Wavetable synths are used to create many of the cutting-edge sounds you hear in today’s blockbuster movies, television series, and hit records. Granular synthesis is capable of creating otherworldly synth sounds by deconstructing sampled material. Harmonic additive synthesis manipulates partials for next-level sound design. And analog synthesis remains a staple of contemporary music-making.

Combining modern wavetable synthesis, granular synthesis, harmonic synthesis, and analog modeling in one powerful, easy-to-use soft synth, Pigments is a synthesis platform that gives you the best of all worlds. From bombastic basses to evolving pads to molten leads, this soft synth has you covered.

Arturia Pigments lets you run up to two sound engines — a triple-oscillator virtual-analog engine, a detailed granular synthesis engine, a harmonic synth engine, or a complex wavetable engine with morphing and import — in parallel for impossibly fat sounds with off-the-charts depth, dimensionality, and harmonic richness.

Near-infinite sound-sculpting control

And to shape the sounds you generate from those sound engines, Pigments has twin filters with dozens of continuously variable filter types and continuous series/parallel routing to give you near-infinite sound-sculpting control. Choose from classic filters among Arturia’s V Collection instruments, or take a walk on the wild side and dig in deep with modern filters like Surgeon and Comb. However you shape them, the sounds coming from Arturia Pigments will take center stage in your productions.

Incredibly powerful and intuitive

Despite its awesome sonic prowess, Arturia Pigments is a ridiculously easy soft synth to use. At Sweetwater, we’re intimately familiar with the challenge of seizing that flash of inspiration and molding it into sound. It’s the most fundamental — and exciting — part of making music. Pigments streamlines that process with near-limitless patch creation and modulation options at your beck and call in an intuitive user interface that provides visual feedback every step of the way. Throw in cool features such as drag-and-drop Insert and Send routing, and sonic experimentation becomes effortless with Arturia Pigments.

A truckload of tricks up its sleeve

According to Arturia, “While Pigments can sound like other synths, no other synth can sound like Pigments.” We couldn’t agree more here at Sweetwater. Pigments’ ability to scale quantized pitch modulations lets you easily build complex melodic sequences. It offers continuous unison controls that can be modulated with classic and chord modes. Its wavetable oscillator boasts extensive wave-shaping options with unique aliasing controls. And in addition to the expected modulation sources, it has unconventional ones like the Turing and Binary random generators.

Your go-to versatile synth

Arturia Pigments also features a battery of modulators — advanced envelopes, morphing LFOs, randomizers, combinators, and more — that bring sound to life. Also featured is configurable gate/retrig handling for the modulators — great for unusual rhythmic sequences and self-generating patches. Arturia Pigments’ polyrhythmic sequencer has a strong emphasis on randomness but also has scale control to retain musicality. And the soft synth’s stunning studio-grade effects — including wavefolder, overdrive, parametric EQ, and delay — make crafting rich, evolving patches instantaneous and fun with Arturia Pigments.
