Complex Wavetable engine

Pigments lets you craft your own signature sounds with an advanced wavetable synth engine. Choose from over 100 wavetables, select any waveform snapshot, or morph between them. You can even import your own to unlock limitless possibilities.

Boundless modulation

Now you’ve seen what Pigments has to offer, the proverbial paint in your palette, it’s time to reveal the true power of the instrument.

Pigments represents a truly modern approach to modulation. It lets you modulate practically any parameter with anything you choose, with no limit on the number of connections. Make changes graphically, with source or destination-based editing. Easily see, learn, and understand how different elements behave and interact with clear visualization.

  • Keyboard: The Keyboard panel gives you a quick access, on-screen MIDI keyboard to audition your sounds, as well as giving visual feedback on what Pigments is receiving from your controller or DAW
  • 3 Envelopes: A trio of hugely powerful, multi-parameter envelopes can be used statically, or animated with modulations with any source or destination you desire.
  • 3 LFOs: Three is the magic number, and these fully customizable LFOs are ready to sync with and modulate any aspect of your sound you can imagine.
  • Customizable Functions: Create one-shot sub-sequences or endless looping animations with three editable Functions. Draw your animation, assign it to anything, Pigments makes advanced synthesis easy and fun.
  • Randomizers: If you want elements of your synth sound to have an exciting random, or controlled random element, Pigments lets gives you tweakable Turing, binary, and sample & hold random options to explore.
  • Twin Combinators: Choose a source parameter, choose a modulator, choose how you want them to interact, and you’ve just made a new combinator. An amazing way to create experimental modulations that will keep your imagination running wild.

Stunning effects

When you’ve created a synth sound with ideal parameters, animated just the way you wanted it, it’s time to add the finishing touches with some studio-grade effects. Pigments offers twin insert busses and a send bus, each one letting you choose and combine any 3 of the 13 effects to create a truly refined sound. You can even synchronize their parameters to your modulation
