Plughugger has released Beyond, a bank of presets for Arturia Pigments 3 aimed at modern pop and melodic EDM.

The focus of the presets was, of course, the internal engine of the synth.

Plughugger has prioritised subtractive synthesis as the foundation of the sounds and has processed and pushed the sounds as far as possible. By utilizing frequency modulation, unison, chorus, the synths’ internal multiband compressor and other effects available in version 3 of Pigments… this preset bank is something else.

Included in the pack by Plughugger are a selection of drum samples from the Elektron Analog Rytm, which is an 8 voice analog drum machine, as well as vocal phrases synthesised in a speech synthesizer to give the sound pack more of a variety.

To bring out a different aspect of the sounds, Plughugger has remade their favourite sounds based on the concept of old-school romplers (electronic instruments that play pre-fabricated sounds based on audio samples).

A unique characteristic of this pack is that rather than using analog oscillators, they have based their new library on traditional sound sources such as real pianos and strings from the Pigments 3 sample library.
