Patchpool has announced the release of Alchemistry, a sound bank for the Alchemy synthesizer instrument by Camel Audio.
One aspect of this Sound Bank focusses on the interior of known and unknown sounds, deconstructing and rebuilding their harmonic structure by resynthesizing them and then manipulating their spectrals. It also focusses on multisampled instruments and granular madness.
The source material is derived from found and often processed everyday objects and field recordings but also from electronics, musical instruments and voices. You will find cinematic soundscapes, drones, otherworldly textures, rhythmical sequences, chromatic and achromatic percussion instruments, ethereal pads as well as real and unreal instruments.
- 1,31 Gigabyte of wav samples produced at 48Khz/24 Bit and 489,3 MB of resynthed sound data, the extra sample folder contains 236,1 MB of wav samples.
- All samples were especially produced for this Bank, a french horn player and a cellist were hired to produce the instrumental samples, the other instruments were played by Simon Stockhausen.
- 100 patches with 8 variations each in Alchemys Remix Pad. All 8 Performance Controllers as well as both x/y-pads are assigned for each patch.
- All the patches from this Bank are also available as Kore-files (ksds) and the Controller assignment and Remix-Pad Snapshots are available in Kore.
Further instructions, the licence agreement and a patchlist are available here (.pdf).
Alchemistry for Alchemy is available to purchase for 32.95 EUR (requires full version of Alchemy, does not work with the Alchemy player version).
