Arturia Pigments: Creating An Ambient Pad

Is Arturia Pigments any good for making ambient pads? In this new patch deconstruction video I take apart a preset from my sound bank Recapture to show you how I created it from scratch, and demonstrate why I love Pigments for creating ambient sounds.

In the video I discuss –

    • Choice of sound sources to make an ambient-style pad
    • Use of filters to control the tone and dynamics of the sound
    • Use of modulation to create movement in the sound
    • Use of effects to polish the sound’s character
    • Assigning macros and mod wheel to create diversity in the patch
