June 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Camel Audio has announced Artificial Intelligence, the 30th Sound Library for their sample manipulation synthesizer, Alchemy.

They say that, with eight carefully designed remix variations for every preset, it’s easy to tweak the sounds to fit your music, and with a full set of tags, finding the right sound is just a click away.

The desktop version of Artificial Intelligence contains 150 presets and works with both Alchemy and Alchemy Player. Artificial Intelligence for Alchemy Mobile contains 50 presets.

Pricing and Availability:
The desktop version of Artificial Intelligence is available now from the Camel Audio shop for 59 USD / 49 EUR / 39 GBP. It’s also included in Alchemy Complete which comprises Alchemy and 30 Sound Libraries at a discount of over 50%.

GenoQs Machines Octopus Meets Ableton Live 8

August 5, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Just a quick little demo to show the Mother of ALL Sequencers controlling four virtual instruments in Abelton Live 8. The plugins where: Arturia MiniV, Artutia ModularV, 2 instances of Alchemy and drum Impulse

While sequencers are machines to control synthesizers, Octopus stands out for a broad user base as a musical instrument. The merit lies in the directness, intuitiveness and creativity that gets unleashed by interacting with Octopus.

User experience and musical creation are the centerpieces of the Octopus design: a no-compromise machine built from metal, wood, and modern real-time software technology. The thorougly structured user interface, its stunning looks, the materials and our care going into hand-assembling every unit make each Octopus a unique piece to stand the test of time.

Octopus’ tactile and visual feedback is a physical experience so typical for traditional musical instruments. Music is being felt, heard and played with Octopus. And the numbers behind it all.. no display? Well, do you really care? Yes, computers love them. We love light, color, and most of all music!

The family of Octopi has three members which differ in the enclosure they come in: Octopus New Classic for the piano lacquered wood look, comes with white painted panels and a red-green-yellow LED matrix. Octopus Lion Head carries on the nature wood look legacy that our original (and now discontinued) model has set, and which many users still long for. And finally Octopus The Shell- thisone you will never have to leave again! Built in an industrial strength road case, it features black anodized panels, and sparkles with red-green-yellow LEDs.
