A demo's a demo's a demo's a demo

"Until 10 January 2019, you can enjoy Pigments for free." What does this mean. When most developers makes a statement like this, it means that "until 10 January 2019, you can download the software for free (and keep it!!!)".

In Arturian it's just a paraphrase of "demo"! Are Arturia trying to hide the fact that it's a simple 30-day demo! Why don't Arturia call a spade a spade, and simply state that it's normal demo.

Artura you are walking a thin line here!

Yes, I read it that way too,  assuming that as a V-Collection 6 owner that this was a good will gesture, as presumably this will become part of V-Collection anyway.

I always thought the V in V Collection stood for Vintage. Seeing as Spark is not part of the V Collection as its not vintage, I can't see why pigments would be included.

Spark was part of the V-collection up to version 3. That's how I got it. Furthermore, I don't think Piano V means that it's vintage.

Pretty certain "V" has always stood for 'Virtual'...  which Pigments is.  Much like Matrix V -- I am hoping that while Arturia released Pigments out of cycle for V Collection 6...  (and I have happily purchased it) -- they will add it to the V Collection 7 whenever that is released.  It would also be way cool, if it were to get integrated into Analog Lab.

I read it to mean after January 10th there won't be a time-limited downloadable demo. Pretty obviously you weren't ever going to get it for free.

If you're an existing Arturia customer, until January 10th you can buy Pigments for either 69 or 99 depending on what you have already bought. That seems a great deal, IMO, and I'm saying that from the perspective of someone who last year was one of the first to publicly moan when they wanted to rape my wallet of 199 just to upgrade from VC5 to VC6. As soon as I get my December salary on 31/12, Pigments will be in my basket.

I was hoping it would cost less, of course. But as a very recent V Collection 6 owner, the damage is $69 for me.

It would likely be a no-brainer based on the demos I've watched alone. But I already own Massive, another very capable wave table synth that I'm still trying to get the hang of. I was only looking to add a modern modular synth, likely Zebra2, which I passed on for the V Collection.

My sound designing is sub par as is. I already have a lot of learning to do with my current collection. I deep demo session might be necessary as this is looking like a great value.

...It would also be way cool, if it were to get integrated into Analog Lab.
I haven't experimented with Analog Lab yet, but I anticipate heavy use after some experience with the individual synths. The addition of Pigments would be crazy!

Just created a post, but I could've just asked here. As this may affect my immediate purchase...

Is Pigments an NKS instrument? I'm guessing not as it's not reflected on the product page.

Correct, V stands for vintage.

It will be implemented at the soonest.
