Pigments 5 promises an expanded sonic palette with an improved Play view, showcasing new waveform visualizers and enhanced controls.

Routing capabilities have been refined, with the AUX FX send now providing the option to be positioned before or after the instrument’s insert effects. This flexibility allows for the routing of processed audio into the integrated spatial effects. A new side-chain input facilitates the routing of audio tracks through Pigments, enabling processing by its Utility engine. The implementation of multi-core processing reduces the strain on the host computer’s CPU resources.
