Your Sound, in Living Colour

Imagine a sound, then create it.

Pigments gives you the finest elements ever found in a software instrument, letting you create pioneering, exciting, and deeply personal sounds.

Laying everything out before you, Pigments lets you fully express your creativity in a way that’s never been seen before in a software instrument.

  • Intuitive, lightning-fast workflow
  • Powerful awesome-sounding architecture
  • Amazing presets from legendary artists

Pigments features a twin audio engine, letting you mix virtual analog and wavetable oscillators with a sample engine to create the perfect starting point for your patch. You can even morph wavetables, granularize samples, and import your own sounds to warp and contort.

What you do next is up to you.
Experiment with 3 envelopes, 3 LFOs, and 3 function generators. Assign modulators to animate your sound, and breathe life into it. Add controlled, or totally wild random changes to any parameter with a Turing probability generator. Run it through 2 filters, with any combination of iconic analog filters or modern formant and surgeon filters you want. Process your patch with exciting contemporary effects like wavefolder and multifilter, or vintage studio reverbs, tape delays, and EQs.

“Routing” isn’t a Dirty Word
Scanning a matrix for the right parameter works, but it isn’t the only way.

Thanks to its unique interface, Pigments doesn’t just make complex modulations easy, it makes them fun. This is a new approach to building sounds.

Making a Masterpiece
For 20 years, Arturia have been analyzing, emulating, and refining the most iconic synthesizers ever made.

Working with Dr Robert Moog, Cameron Jones, and many other industry legends, Arturia have built their reputation on creating world-class instruments. They turned the music industry on its head with the release of their trailblazing, affordable analogue hardware synthesizer, the MiniBrute.

With multiple awards under their belt, you could say that Arturia have done their homework. Pigments combines their passion for vintage FM and analogue sound with modern wavetable synthesis to create what is, to us, the ultimate software synth.

Emulator II V

The perfect dusty lo-fi sampling toolkit, combining the original Emulator’s digital grit that you love with the cutting-edge creative flexibility that you need.

OB-Xa V

Faithful to the fat, aggressive sound of the original and supercharged with new features, OB-Xa V will take you for a wild sonic ride.

Vocoder V

The iconic 16-band vocoder expanded with advanced synth, sampler, and modulation capabilities, offering a distinct sound that truly speaks for itself.

Synthi V

A patch-pin modular sensation, the quirky British “silver machine” put a new spin on modular synthesis. It has been reborn with expanded modulations, powerful effects, an updated sequencer, with the ability to group pins for total control.

CZ V

The budget synth that became a legend in its own right. The instrument that brought the digital synth revolution to the masses with its razor sharp phase distortion sound. Now beefed up as software, with added modulations and awesome effects!

Mellotron V

The original instrument redefined what keyboard players could do, unlocking the doors to orchestral and choral sounds at the touch of a key. The reborn Mellotron features all original tapes, as well as the ability to play your own samples with authentic tape emulation.

CMI V

The mother of all samplers, and a groundbreaking additive synth, the Fairlight original redefined pop music. Arturia’s recreation gives you 10 multitimbral, polyphonic slots to design your sound, real-time waveform shaping, effects, sequencer, and even a brand new “Spectral” synth.

DX7 V

If you’ve ever listened to the radio, watched a film, or owned any 80s records, you’ll have heard the DX-7. Arturia simplified the way you program it and expanded it with a mod matrix, custom envelopes, waveforms, a 2nd LFO, effects, and more.

Buchla Easel V

Don Buchla’s leftfield analog synth from 1973, the Music Easel was perfect for exploring alternative sound design, creating ambient, widescreen textures, and unfamiliar sequences. Arturia’s reimagining also features “Gravity”, a physics-based synth.

Clavinet V

One of the most loved, influential electric keyboards of all time, this funky, energetic tone is now available in a physically modelled software instrument, complete with customizable setup, and classic amp and effects combos.

ARP2600 V

This classic earned its reputation as a staple for clear, bright leads and basses a la “Frankenstein” and “Birdland”, as well as sound design such as the voice of R2D2. Its semi-modular design featured normalized connections you can override with a patch cord, making it a great tool for learning and exploring synthesis. Arturia’s version has tons of enhancements including polyphony, tracking generator modules, 1601 sequencer, and effects.

B-3 V

The king of electronic organs, the rich sounding B-3 has been a staple of jazz, gospel, hard rock and reggae for over a half-century. Arturia’s faithful homage includes a rotary speaker, as well as drawbar modulation for new animated and syncopated effects.

CS-80 V

The CS-80 distinguished itself by having two complete synth sound paths in parallel, making for rich complex sonic textures. Popularized by Toto, Vangelis, ELO, Stevie Wonder and many more, it brimmed with expressive controls rarely found elsewhere, including a ribbon controller and polyphonic aftertouch. We’ve included a new generation of creative features like additional modulation routings, multi-timbral voicing, arpeggiator, stereo delay and preset morphing.

Farfisa V

Much lighter than a B3 Style and more cutting than a Vox, the Farfisa transistor organ helped drive the effervescent sounds of ‘60s Top 40 hits and has kept bubbling up across upbeat genres ever since. It also wanted to be a synth when it grew up, which we’ve aided by adding user-definable waveforms, DAW sync for tremolo/repeat, more envelope control and integral effects.

Jup-8 V

Managing to be simultaneously fat, airy and crystal clear, this classic polysynth was embraced by pop luminaries including Prince, Duran Duran, Moby, Depeche Mode and No Doubt. Distinguishing features included switchable 2- and 4-pole filters, hi-pass filters, VCO sync, and an arpeggiator. We’ve brought extra love by adding complex LFO combinations, modulation-targetable dynamic effects, and an advanced step sequencer that can be used as a mod source.

Matrix-12V

One of the finest analog poly synths ever made, the Matrix-12 featured the big brassy Oberheim sound, unparalleled matrix modulation, and unprecedented 15-mode filters. Each of the 12 voices could have its own sound assigned to any MIDI channel and key range, making for massive layered textures and complex splits. We’ve expanded it with even more mod sources and a 27 x 47 matrix.

Mini V

Probably the most famous synth in history and sporting a discography to match, this monosynth is legendary for its fat, warm basses and leads owing to its three VCOs and 12db/octave filter. Arturia partnered with Bob Moog himself with massive updates including polyphony (a la Memorymoog), a dedicated modulation LFO, formant-based vocal filter, sample/hold, mod matrix, parameter automation, and preset morphing.

Modular V

The Modular system started the entire electronic music revolution and is still one of the most powerful and huge-sounding synths ever. While largely used for diatonic music, its patch-cord based interface yielded complete sonic and creative flexibility. Arturia collaborated with Bob Moog to update this behemoth with programmable presets, polyphony, nine VCOs, three VCFs and rare original modules like the Bode 1620 frequency shifter.

Piano V

Piano V delivers nine world-class pianos, ranging from 9’ concert grands to studio uprights to unconventional designs. Rather than stacks of samples, they’re all based on Arturia’s award-winning modeling technology applied to the sound and mechanics—strings, hammers, sound boards, mic positions and more. Finally, there’s a piano emulation you’ll truly love playing. Just choose a preset and play, or customize your own.

Prophet V

The Prophet V combines the famous Prophet 5 with the later Prophet VS. As the first fully programmable polyphonic synth, the subtractive-synthesis Prophet 5 was everywhere in the late ‘70s. The VS used vector synthesis, with X-Y joystick morphing of its four oscillators—each containing one of 128 different digital waveforms. Arturia’s Hybrid mode adds matrix modulation to combine elements of both instruments for bold new sounds.

SEM V

Tom Oberheim’s SEM was one of the first self-contained synth modules and was further distinguished by its unique 12db-octave multimode filter. His first polyphonic synth was actually a combination of individual SEMs connected to a digital scanning keyboard which, since each voice was slightly different, gave it a very alive sound. We’ve recreated an 8-voice version with added modulation matrix, noise, sub-oscillator, arpeggiator and portamento.

Solina V

Before poly synths and samplers, the Solina string machine borrowed top-octave divider technology from organs and married it with animated choruses to deliver lush string textures that samples still can’t fully duplicate. Arturia set up both the original mono and later stereo versions, included the phaser effect popularized by Jean-Michel Jarre, added voices inspired by the Polymoog and more, making it the perfect pad machine.

Stage-73 V

The tine-based electric pianos of the ‘60s and ‘70s featured a rounder sound and longer sustain than the competing Electric Organs. They’ve been used by a who’s who of keyboardists, especially for jazz, funk and ballads. Arturia modeled the Stage 73 and Suitcase 73 right down to the tines, pickups and circuitry. They also included a tube amp model and classic effects for the full experience.

Synclavier V

The Synclavier V faithfully recreates and improves on the elite digital synthesizer that powered some of the biggest hits and film soundtracks of the early ‘80s. Its unique fusion of additive and FM synthesis technologies made for a stunningly diverse and unique universe of cinematic pads and evolving timbres. Arturia partnered with original designer Cameron Jones to faithfully build the only emulation ever attempted.

VOX Continental V

The transistor-based Vox Continental became popular in the ‘60s as a much lighter and affordable alternative to B3 Styles. While it borrowed B3 Style’s drawbar construct, the Vox had an eager pop-ready sound all its own that was quickly adopted in the British Invasion and West Coast hit factories. We’ve included the later Jennings J70 engine alternative and added full drawbars, extra waveforms, rotary cabinet, and effects.

Wurli V

The reed-based electric piano was brighter and tighter than the Rhodes. Mellow at lower velocities, its voice took on a rougher bark as it was played harder. This made it a favoured electric piano for rock and funk players—and another perfect example of something that Arturia’s physical modelling nails that sampling can’t. We’ve added lots of tone-shaping options, guitar amp, rotary speaker and effects boxes.
