What's new in Pigments 1.2?
Introducing Sound Store
Find exciting new preset sound banks from within Pigments. New themed banks will be added regularly, giving users a whole new range of sounds to explore.
A new unison detune voice mode lets you beef up your oscillator up with the style of the famous “JP” supersaw.
A new visual layout, with the added ability to set different clock divisions for each lane in the sequencer or arpeggiator.
Great news for owners of Maschine or Komplete Kontrol. Pigments is now fully compliant with Native Instruments NKS control format, instantly smart-mapping key parameters.
We’ve added a third combinator, giving you more sound-shaping potential. We’ve also introduced a new “Map” type that lets you remap any incoming modulation source.
We’ve reduced the minimum value for the attack times, letting you achieve even sharper envelope modulation for super-nasty sounds.
Want to be a bit more free with your tuning? Now you can select alternative keyboard scales, as well as import your own .scl and .tun files.
50 new presets
We’ve added dozens more factory preset sounds that make use of the new capabilities of the Pigments audio engine updates in version 1.2.
The little things
On top of all the big new features, we’ve made lots of small enhancements too. New Aftertouch curves, Mod source hovering displays, integrated Filter tutorials, and bug fixes to give you the best experience ever.
