Arturia Updates Pigments, Free To Use Until July 4th

Arturia tonight have announced an upgrade to their Pigments software synth - bringing it to version 1.2. The upgrade is free to all Pigments owners, and as with the initial release, Arturia are offering a fully functional, free download which will work until July the 4th - giving you time to try it and use it. If you buy during the promotional period, the price is $149/€149 instead of $199/€199.

Pigments is an shift away from Arturia's usual instruments in that it is not an emulation but a new instrument in its own right with some excellent GUI design choices, especially for quickly seeing and changing the numerous modulation options. We tried it out (see below).

Here's a list of the new features:

 Sound Store
Find new preset sound banks from within Pigments. New themed banks will be added regularly, giving users a whole new range of sounds to explore.

SUPER mode
A new unison detune voice mode lets you beef up your oscillator up with the style of the famous "JP" supersaw

Sequencer revamp
A new visual layout, with the added ability to set different clock divisions for each lane in the sequencer or arpeggiator.

NKS Compatible
Pigments is now fully compliant with Native Instruments NKS control format, instantly smart-mapping key parameters.

Extra Combinator
Now with a third combinator, giving you more sound-shaping potential.  Also introduced is a new "Remap" type that lets you remap any incoming modulation source. 

Updated envelope
Now reduced the minimum value for the attack times, letting you achieve even sharper envelope modulation for super-nasty sounds.

Now you can select alternative keyboard scales, as well as import your own .scl and .tun files.

50 new presets
Dozens more factory preset sounds that make use of the new capabilities of the Pigments audio engine updates in version 1.2.

The little things
On top of all the big new features, Arturia have made lots of small enhancements too. New Aftertouch curves, Mod source hovering displays, integrated Filter tutorials, and bug fixes.
