Arturia has today launched Pigments 3.5 an impressive free update with full M1 support, new engine cross-mod, all-new distortion effect, and more.

A free update that launches our one-stop softsynth powerhouse into a new era of sound. Boldly explore the intricate colours, textures, and energies of the frontiers of electronic music production, from trap to grime to future bass.

Pigments 3.5 New Features:

  • CrossMod: introduce cross-modulation between engines 1 and 2. Either engine can be used as a modulation source, with a number of parameters to customize for wild harmonics, unusual waveforms, and extreme sonic results. 
  • New Distortion Module: Pigments 3.5’s new Distortion Module combines 16 modes of distortion with built-in filtering, for everything from bubbling germanium fuzz to jagged wave folding, soft saturation or pure filth. 
  • Expanded Comb Filter: Pigments’ comb filter now comes with 3 new damped modes; LP6, BP6, and HP6. These filter out certain frequencies in the feedback loop for unique sounds like ambient plucks, shimmering bowed leads, and much more. 
  • Enhanced Sample Engine Browser: This now features subfolders and a one-click sample preview. 
  • New Wavetables: Pigments 3.5 features dozens of new wavetables inspired by molecular structures, mineral textures, and aggressive modern timbres. 
  • Apple M1 compatibility: Enjoy native support for Apple’s next-generation M1 processors, ensuring flawless Pigments performance on the latest macOS machines. 
  • Streamlined GUI: A number of subtle menu redesigns and workflow improvements to streamline your sound design process. 
  • 150+ New Factory Presets: Pigments 3.5 introduces 150 new patches exploring the massive potential of new features like CrossMod, Comb Filter, and more.
