Combine any pair from a selection of 4 state-of-the-art sound engines, and layer them with deep sub bass and a sprinkling of sampled noise for instant access to every texture, timbre, and color.

HARMONIC ENGINE

WAVETABLE ENGINE

Animate, distort, or morph through over 160 wavetables, bringing a vast spectrum of breathy, glassy, and abrasive digital sounds. Perfect for everything from roof-raising bass music to hyperpop toplines.

VIRTUAL ANALOG ENGINE

Energize your mix with coveted analog warmth and irresistible vintage charm, inspired by the greatest synths ever made, courtesy of Arturia's award-winning analog emulation technology.

SAMPLE AND GRANULAR ENGINE

Browse hundreds of instrument samples and loops, import your own, and transform them into genre-defying granular patches. Warp, contort, stretch, and modulate samples down to the finest detail.

UTILITY ENGINE

Used in conjunction with Pigments’ dual sound engines, the Utility engine lets you add an extra oscillator to the mix, complemented by 2 noise sample players, ensuring that your sound always has the depth and detail it deserves.

Endless customization

Any parameter tweak or expression is just a colorful click away. Shape, animate, and elevate your sound until it’s entirely your own with instant patch modulation, the best classic & modern filters, and stunning studio-grade FX.

FX

The ultimate final touch. Create your own unique chain of FX with twin insert buses and a send bus, and a curated selection of 18 classic, creative, or modern algorithms - from pitch shifting delay to an essential multiband compressor.

Musical sequencing

Pigments doesn’t just make amazing sounds and inspiring synth presets - it makes music. The advanced sequencing section lets you weave beautiful melodies, catchy motifs, and entire arrangements without ever leaving Pigments. Need a dose of inspiration? Experiment with powerful arpeggiation, scale quantization, and smart randomization that’ll get you back on the creative path in no time. On the Seq page, everything is laid out simply in front of you. Watch your sequence as it plays, and make adjustments to notes, octaves, velocity, and more with a simple click and drag.
