Arturia today announced their latest update for their flagship softsynth. Pigments three has updated synthesis components, effects, wavetables and more and is a FREE update to existing users.
We take a look at the new stuff (or some of it) and a listen to a few sounds. One thing that (thankfully) Arturia have not done is mess with the intuitive way that you can set up the modulation mappings with th central section providing essential visdual feedback for creating complex synthesis patches.
The update is available now free to existing Pigments owners, and 50% off at €99/$99 till May 13th.
