Pigments 3


What's New

Introduce cross modulation between engines 1 and 2. Either engine can be used as a modulation source, with a number of parameters to customize for wild harmonics, unusual waveforms, and extreme sonic results.

New Distortion Module
Pigments 3.5’s new Distortion Module combines 16 modes of distortion with built-in filtering, for everything from bubbling germanium fuzz to jagged wavefolding, soft saturation or pure filth.

Expanded Comb Filter
Pigments' comb filter now comes with 3 new damped modes; LP6, BP6, and HP6. These filter out certain frequencies in the feedback loop for unique sounds like ambient plucks, shimmering bowed leads, and much more.

Apple M1 compatibility
Enjoy native support for Apple’s next-generation M1 processors, ensuring flawless Pigments performance on the latest macOS machines.

New Wavetables
Pigments 3.5 features dozens of new wavetables inspired by molecular structures, mineral textures, and aggressive modern timbres.

Enhanced Sample Engine Browser
This now features subfolders and one-click sample preview.

Streamlined GUI
A number of subtle menu redesigns and workflow improvements to streamline your sound design process.

150+ New Factory Presets
Pigments 3.5 introduces 150 new patches exploring the massive potential of new features like CrossMod, Comb Filter, and more.
