Patchpool releases MetaVox for Alchemy

Patchpool MetaVox

Patchpool has announced the release of MetaVox, a sound library for the Alchemy sample manipulation synthesizer by Camel Audio.

MetaVox for Alchemy is build around the exceptional overtone and throat singing of Gareth Lubbe, a true master of his craft. As Gareth is actually a professional orchestral viola player this library also contains several patches with viola sounds, the viola being a string instrument with a great resemblance to the human voice. During the recording session we also recorded duets of Gareth singing and playing the viola at the same time, these sample make for some more beautiful and wondrous sounds in Alchemy.

There are also patches with female vocals, using samples which were recorded during a recent session with Frauke Albert, a renown German vocalist (soprano), working mainly in the field of contemporary music.

As an additional string instrument some sounds also use violin samples, another instrument which has a very voice-like character and blends beautifully with the vocals sounds in this library.

MetaVox features

  • 1.8 Gigabyte of original samples (wav) and resynthed files (.aaz).
  • 56 patches with 8 variations each in Alchemy’s Remix Pad, all Performance Controllers and both x/y-pads are assigned for each patch.
  • All samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R in 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic – a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R.
  • Requires full version of Alchemy (version 1.55 and higher). It does not work with the Alchemy player version.

MetaVox is available to purchase for 36 EUR.

Patchpool introduces MetaVox for Alchemy

Patchpool MetaVox

Patchpool has announced MetaVox, a sample library for the Alchemy sample manipulation instrument by Camel Audio.

MetaVox for Alchemy focusses on the exceptional overtone singing of Gareth Lubbe, a true master of his craft who recently became the first professor for overtone singing in Germany. As Gareth is actually a professional orchestral viola player this library also contains several patches with viola sounds, the viola being a string instrument with a great resemblance to the human voice. During the recording session we also recorded duets of Gareth singing and playing the viola at the same time, these sample will make for some more beautiful and wondrous Alchemy sounds.

There will also be several patches with female vocals using samples which were recorded during a recent session with Frauke Albert, a renown german vocalist (soprano), working mainly in the field of contemprary music.

As an additional string instrument I will also use some recently recorded violin samples, another instrument which has a very voice-like character and blends beautifully with the vocals sounds in this library.

Besides using the original vocal and string samples (and resynthed derivatives thereof) for making the Alchemy patches, I am fascinated in the microcosmic interior of harmonics, so I am producing quite a few electronic derivatives of the samples, created by e.g. detaching the harmonics from the root note, then deleting the root note only leaving the harmonics which are then furtherly processed, timestretched, spectralized, tuned to a tempered scale and more.

The MetaVox library is scheduled for release on September 9th, 2013. It is available to pre-order for 28 EUR (20% off regular 35 EUR).

Camel Audio Minimal Techno

Camel Audio has launched Minimal Techno, a sound library for the Alchemy and Alchemy Player sample manipulation synthesizer instruments for Windows and Mac.

Minimal Techno: Stripped down, unrelenting grooves, processed electronic drum kits, and deep basses with soul. Featuring modwheel-scanned and tempo-synced loops, chordal and sequenced synth stabs, noise hits and sweeps, all with extensive remix variations for real-time performance.

Minimal Techno features 264MB of new samples, including classic 808 and 909 samples for drum kits and 101 and 303 acid bass lines, plus a selection of tightly-edited micro kits, a host of essential grooves, and plenty of inventive effects to create your own minimal moods.

Many of these sounds aren’t just limited to minimal techno, they also work well for electronica, downtempo and trance. From the relentless to the unfamiliar, Minimal Techno warps, clatters, and ticks away with the emphasis on rhythm.

Minimal Techno for Alchemy costs 29 EUR. New Camel Audio customers can purchase the sound library at a 10% discount (discount will be applied to the entire first order at Camel Audio).

Humanoid Sound updates Scanned Synth Pro to v2.1.1 (incl. 64-bit) + Xenogenesis & Anamorphic Cinema soundsets

Humanoid Sound Systems has released version 2.1.1 of Scanned Synth Pro, a virtual synthesizer for Windows and Mac.

Humanoid Sound Scanned Synth Pro
Scanned Synth Pro offers you a unique sound with personality and character in spades.

If you don’t want to sound like everybody else then try Scanned Synth Pro – a step beyond the clones.

SSP features a revolutionary Scanned Synthesis engine combining both physical modeling and wavetable synthesis, using a technique developed in the late 1990s by a pioneering team of scientists at Interval Research.

Changes in Scanned Synth Pro v2.1.1

  • Support for 64-bit VST and AU.
  • Included the LimeFlavour One skin.
  • Fixed the issue with serial numbers for users with accented characters in their names under Windows.

Scanned Synth Pro for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $24.99 USD. Existing users can download the update at no charge.

Xenogenesis for Scanned Synth Pro

Humanoid Sound has also released two soundsets: Xenogenesis for Scanned Synth Pro, and Anamorphic Cinema for Alchemy by Camel Audio.

Xenogenesis contains 142 sounds for Scanned Synth Pro, created by Bryan Lee, who was on the sound design team for the 2.0 release. The Xenogenesis soundset boosts main two categories of sound to remedy the fact that the factory set is currently woefully deficient in basses and leads – there are over 40 sounds in each of those categories as well as other sounds. Genres targeted: Ambient, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Glitch, Grime, IDM, Industrial and Trip-Hop

Anamorphic Cinema is a unique hybrid of rawness and sophistication, capturing the internal richness and movement of scanned synthesis.

Anamorphic Cinema for Alchemy

It brings you pads that are rich and analogue in character, or airy and machine-like, plus leads featuring screaming filters, wheezing tubes, struck glass, and bags of retro attitude, and wiry, metallic, filth-laden basses tortured from wire and rust.

Starting life as 121Mb of detailed multi-samples captured from Humanoid Sound Systems’ Scanned Synth Pro, the sounds of Anamorphic Cinema have subsequently been enhanced by Alchemy filters, extensive modulation options, real-time performance controls and extra effects, to produce a library that will work perfectly across a host of genres including electronica and ambient, through to more aggressive styles such as industrial and dubstep.

The Xenogenesis soundset costs $10.99 USD; Anamorphic Cinema is $7.99 USD.
