For Arturia Pigments 3
This is a short set of nine presets that explore the space between a sound and its spectral twin. Some patches are created from original samples and others mix the granular engine with the harmonic for interesting effects. All required dependencies are contained in the DL. Just unzip, open folder inside then use the “import…” option in the dropdown menu in Pigments 3.0
These sounds come with intelligent macro routing so you can explore and re-create on the fly.
1. Comms: A buzzing, glitching sample that suggest comms failure is round robin triggered to further break up its profile. This is doubled with its granular ghost, dialled up with M3. MW adds presence and power.
2. Delicious: A soft, delicious sample is doubled with its granular ghost, dialled up with M3. MW adds power.
3. Harmolodix: Harmonic engine is doubled with its granulated sample to create a devil’s squeezebox. Radically alter the sound via the macros. MW is vaguely Hendrix-y.
4. Piano Figments: A delayed piano is mixed with its granular ghost and a soft sine bass. Decay/Release is global. MW adds an orchestral atmos.
5. Piano Ghost: A prepared piano is mixed with its granular ghost and a soft sine bass. Decay/Release is global. Full MW adds very large hall reverb to all. Very large.
6. Seismic: A buzzing, erratic, almost harpsichord-like sample is reversed and round-robin triggered for unpredictablity. This is doubled with its granular ghost, dialled up with M3. MW adds random phasing, short R and a mournful voice. Time makes it tick.
7. Talking in Church: An unreliable, unpredictable pad reminiscient of a church organ but there seems to be intereference from a vocoder. The ghost is a granular piano. Timbre & Growl add interest. Cathedral does what you’d expect, but massively. MW does oddness.
8. Tonal Figments: A delayed tone is mixed with a granular bell and a soft sine bass. Decay/Release is global. MW adds an orchestral atmos.
9. Washette: A tuneless thing for special moments. Driven by the harmonic engine and doubled up with a tinkling ghost copy that almost sounds nice, you can also add detune with the macros and mashup. MW throbs
