Camel Audio has announced the release of Bandura, a free Micro Library expansion for the Alchemy sample manipulation synthesizer instrument.
We’re very proud to release another free expansion to the Alchemy Factory Library. Our latest addition comprises over 180MB of exclusive Bandura recordings and 27 brand new presets, expertly captured and constructed by Sound Designer, Nick Moritz.
The new presets range from more traditional sounding Bandura plucks and tremolo techniques, to glistening arps, deep basses and haunting atmospheres.
The Bandura Micro Library is available for free to all owners of the full, desktop version of Alchemy.
