[Pigments] New Arturia product announcement December 11


#61

didnt know about the V6 deal, do you know if its the same for V5?


#62

99 USD I believe


#63

Have you tried it? is very good good and superb to program, the sequencer it quite elektron like and modulators like the Turin stuff make this a little bit different…I mean, it’s VA and Wavetable so it’s going to sound like VA mixed with Wavetable, but it does it extremely well…


#64

An Elektron-like sequencer you say? Care to elaborate?


#65

16 step with ‘probability’ on steps for gate and trigger and random, it’s pretty fun. Polyrhythmic and also has lots of scales for the pitch.


#66

Does anyone know if this supports MPE? I can’t find any mention of it.


#67

per-step probability does sound intriguing!


#68

Nothing wrong with its building blocks.
I’m sure it will sound amazing in the right hands


#69

FYI: It’s for “free” 'till 10. Jan. 2019. :sunglasses:


#70

this is just a standard video sample from a commercial library,
it is used by many (not audio related) companies,
sorry to smash the deep investigation


#71

Tried installing Pigments on a virtual Windows, got a notification that it needs a 64 bit OS architecture, gave up for now.


#72

Just downloaded. Be nice sample fodder.


#73

No really experienced with virtual windows machines, but from what I know shouldn’t you be able to just emulate that? Or does the system that the virutal machine runs on have to be 64 bit to be able to run a 64bit virtual machine? Really not sure, tho :thinking:


#74

That’s what I will do over the hollydays :sunglasses:


#75

It’s a beautiful piece of software, I love it already, but I’ve tested it on a 5years old mac book and a brand new pc, and it is a cpu hog… which is my experience with Arturia softwares unfortunately…


#76

The virtual machine that I use to run Windows 7 (which is all I really need for now and have a licence for) will not currently run a 64 bit version of Windows, unfortunately.


#77

I would Like an iPad Version…


#78

Installed Arturia’s installation centre software, Pigments is in the list, I click activate - but there is NO install button. It’s missing from where it should be. The trial time is ticking down but I have absolutely no way to install it on my brand new Macbook Pro with touchbar.


#79

you only need to activate if you purchase afaicr

download the installer manually and run it in demo mode (unless you bought it) - no need for ASC


#80

Maybe? … someday?

In the meantime it does run on the Surface. That’s (mostly) good by my measure.

You can watch a video of this but WARNING the guy in this video is the most annoying presenter i’ve seen in a loooooong time. It’s excruciating. You see the paisley shirt?

So it’s mostly runnable on a touch screen, although it looks like you need a mouse for some of the stuff.
