Arturia has launched a new promotion to help those who are just starting their musical journey. Until February 17, the company has reduced software instruments, effects and individual presets by 50%.

The highlight of the sale is Arturia’s Pigments software. At 50% off, you can get the company’s original virtual synthesizer for $99, down from $199. Apart from being discounted, it’s also a great time to buy pigments, as Arturia recently added support for Apple’s M1 chips. Among other additions, the 3.5 update also added a new cross-modulation feature that allows for results ranging from eerie to full-on sonic panics.

We have used some of Arturia’s software in the past. For the most part, the company’s instruments, effects, and presets are easy to use and surprisingly close to the synths and devices they attempt to emulate. It might not be the real thing, but you’ll pay far less for Arturia’s software than you would for a Moog synth or a Rhodes piano – not to mention that finding some of these classic instruments can be a challenge. and they take up a lot of space. When you add a discount to this software, it makes the decision even easier for those new to music production.
