NAMM 2019: With Pigments, Arturia wants to change the way you make music

This mighty wavetable and virtual analogue synth is 20 years in the making.

Arturia Pigments

Arturia has released Pigments, a polychrome software synthesiser that may just alter the way you create music.


Arturia is no stranger to breaking the mould. Since 2003, the company has been striving to digitally recreate legendary analogue synthesisers. Its first venture, the Modular V, rose to critical acclaim, and 15 years later, Pigments may very well do the same.

The new product features a twin synth engine, allowing you to mix virtual analogue and wavetable oscillators to lay the foundation for your patch. Morphing wavetables and importing your own are a cinch, too.

What next? Well, that’s entirely up to you. With a keyboard panel, a trio of envelopes and LFOs, multiple customisable functions, randomisers and twin combinators, the possibilities are endless.

If you’re still on the fence about Pigments, Arturia is offering you a chance to preview it for free, from now until 10 January. Simply download it here.
