"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 visual 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."

"Arturia has released version 3 for their lovely VST synth Pigments. The update gives us the third layer with Utility Engine, new Engine Type - Harmonic, new filter, effects, waveforms, noise samples, flexible routing settings.

The Harmonic engine has blown my mind, I've never seen anything like this.
And new presets, they are fantastic! I made a short walkthrough.

Presets for synths and effects:"
