  1. Wavetable synths can generate good analog bass, but it takes added work to get there. Everything else pops up more easily, but you’ll still get a clean tone that needs dirtied up a little for grittier jobs. If I match Pigments with a focused VA, it comes to life more readily. The digital and analog aspects blend well.

    I wouldn’t recommend it as a first synth, but its a very good second one. Sometimes it feels like a whopper of an effects unit as much as a synth. I’m glad that Arturia is backing it up with useful upgrades. Its half workhorse and part mad scientist kit.
