Just tweak the library of excellent presets from many of the world's top sound designers or dive in and analyse your own samples - it's up to you!
Alchemy blurs the boundaries between sampling and synthesis, and allows you to manipulate sounds in ways which are impossible with conventional samplers. It features additive, spectral and granular synthesis and resynthesis, sampling, and a very capable virtual analog engine with unison and PWM.
You can morph or crossfade between sources. You can import your own samples from SFZ, WAV or AIFF files. A wide range of analog modelled filters are included, in addition to a flexible rack of effects which includes all those from CamelPhat and CamelSpace as well as many new effects such as a high quality reverb.
The innovative modulation system is extremely flexible, yet easy to use. Alchemy also features a powerful arpeggiator with the ability to import the groove from any MIDI file for immediate synchronization to a beat.
Alchemy ships with over 2GB of samples and analysed content from in-house designers Tim Conrardy and Biomechanoid, as well as designers such as Ian Boddy, Robert Rich, Scott Solida and Nucleus SoundLab.
A library of 450 excellent presets from many of the world's top sound designers is included, arranged into categories for rapid access to the sound you require. A variety of expansion sound banks are in development.
