In need for 600 oscillators – Alchemy is here

December 29, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music 

Alchemy is the ultimate sample manipulation synthesizer. It’s a synth powerhouse and yet is very easy to use thanks to its performance controls and remix pads. 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 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.

What is Alchemy all about?

  • Additive, spectral and granular synthesis and resynthesis, sampling, virtual analog engine with unison and PWM.
  • 4 stereo sources each of which has additive, VA, spectral, granular and sampler engine, morph between sources using advanced harmonic blending and precise time alignmen, crossfade between sounds with vector mixin.
  • Performance controls and remix for easy tweaking by non-programmers. 16 controls per preset carefully assigned by the preset designer, for instant access to each presets most tweakable paramete.
  • 8 remix pad variations per preset – click and drag to morph between variations two XY squares
  • You can import your own samples from SFZ, WAV or AIFF files.
  • 2GB of samples and analysed content.
  • 300 presets covering everything from pads and soundscapes to keys, basses and leads designed by many of the worlds top sound designers.
  • 16 effects types including all of the CamelSpace and CamelPhat effects!
  • 128 Step Groove Arpeggiator
  • Extensive modulatation routing with midi learn

Additive:

  • Very high quality analysis and resynthesis – import vocal phrases, drum loops made possible by  600 stereo oscillators
  • Realtime modulation of amplitude, pitch and pan spectrums by any modulator – for example, control the odd/even harmonic balance, pan partials using LFOs, stretch or contract the harmonic spectrum and lots more
  • Individual amplitude, pitch and pan envelopes for each partial
  • Easy to use additive editor with unique detail knob to simplify sounds for editing

Spectral Synthesizer

  • Phase vocoder analysis for high quality pitch and time stretching
  • Noise resynthesis mode using 256 band noise shaping
  • Advanced graphical sonogram editing – choose from a range of brushes and select the colour and opacity
  • Graphical spectral cut, copy and paste – cut or copy and paste specific frequency and time regions

Granular Synthesizer

  • Sampler or granular playback modes
  • freely modulatable parameters including grain size, density (up to 10 simultaneous grains), random grain time and random pan
  • Selectable and customizable granular window shapes
