Camel Audio has updated its Alchemy Mobile free iOS synthesizer app.
Alchemy Mobile v1.1.27 lets you move the remix pad using the new Tilt function to translate your physical hand movements into morphing sound changes, while Inertia lets these moves continue under their own steam while you carry on playing. Other new features include quantize to tighten up the timing of your recordings, as well as unlimited record, bounce and export times, further improvements to the keyboard and menu displays, more control over MIDI input and outputs, and iPad 3 retina display graphics.
The Pro Upgrade now lets you record remix pad movements to capture complex sound changes, bookmark your presets to make favourites easier to find, adds more complex quantize functions including triplets and a new ‘Clear MIDI performance and loops’ option. Upgrading to Pro is easy once you’ve installed the free version – just tap on the preset name in the upper left, switch to the Libraries page and select the Pro Upgrade to purchase.
Three new mobile versions of existing Alchemy libraries are now available on mobile, each featuring 50 presets across a wide variety of sound categories. Biolabs: Dark Space is a nightmare blend of science fiction and horror that is both fascinating yet strangely chilling, Dream Voices is a haunting medley of angelic solos, choral washes and intricately woven vocal gymnastics, while Luftrum: Ambient is a journey between worlds, from summer afternoons to the icy depths of space.
Alchemy Mobile is a free app for the iPhone and iPad. The Pro Upgrade is currently on sale for $6.99 USD/5.49 EUR/£4.99 GBP (50% off regular). Biolabs: Dark Space, Dream Voices, and Luftrum: Ambient are $4.99 USD/3.99 EUR/£2.99 GBP each. A free copy is available to those who own the Alchemy Mobile Pro Upgrade and the equivalent Alchemy or Alchemy Player sound library.
