Turn your iPhone/iPad into a powerful synthesizer! Alchemy Mobile includes everything from evolving soundscapes and fat bases to lush pads and pulsing arpeggios, and is available for free from the iTunes App store. This is the iOS version of Camel Audio's award-winning Mac/PC Alchemy synth - the leading sample manipulation synthesizer which can be heard on thousands of records and films by world-class artists.

Touch Remote for Alchemy on Mac/PC

 

With the Pro Upgrade ($19.99/15.99/£13.99), you can remotely control Alchemy or the free Alchemy Player on your desktop computer. This is the first iPhone App to offer a dedicated touch remote feature for a desktop synth! Easy one touch access to the remix pad and preset selection means you'll spend more time getting inspired and less time reaching for your mouse.

Create Your Own Sounds with the Remix Pad

 

Discover an almost limitless palette of sounds using the unique remix pad to morph between sound variations. 16 controls including cutoff, resonance, ADSR and effects parameters are specially selected for each preset to make tweaking sounds to fit your music easier than ever.

External MIDI or Built In Keyboard

 

The Alchemy Mobile interface was designed with ease of use in mind. You can play the mini keyboard built into the app, which features scalable key size and one touch major and minor keys so even the clumsiest fingers can play along with friends. You can also plug in an external Core MIDI keyboard.

Copy/Paste and Loop Player

 

Using Alchemy with other apps like NanoStudio and Garageband is easy, thanks to the included loop player. Simply paste a loop from your sequencer into Alchemy Player, hit record, and play in your killer bass part, and then paste the resulting loop back into the sequencer. Alchemy Player is the first iPhone app to feature exposé, which makes switching between pages a breeze.

Most Powerful Synthesis Engine on iOS

 

Want to know why Alchemy Mobile has such amazing sounds which can change so drastically with a tap of the remix pad? The performance controls and remix pad are linked to the most powerful synthesis engine on iOS, which allows you to morph and change the sound in radical ways not possible with any other synth. Alchemy's VA synth, sampler and granular and additive resynthesis, combined with almost unlimited modulation sources, effects and a flexible arpeggiator are used to power this expressive way of creating new sounds for your music.

Expandable with Sound Libraries

 

The free version of Alchemy Mobile includes 25 sounds, with a further 25 available when you register for free with Camel Audio. You can expand Alchemy Mobile with a wide range of sound libraries such as BigTone, Cinematic and Arp Dimensions from world class sound designers. The libraries each contain 50 sounds (400 variations) and are available as in-app purchases for $4.99/3.99/£2.99.

There's also a regular Alchemy update in there, but every time I clicked on the various links in my email yesterday, I got "website down" messages and the like. I'll try again tonight.

Thanks for the link. :thu:

 

A lot of that is outdated information--perhaps now they can reconsider, as they have launched the iPad/iPhone versions.

Just downloaded it. It sounds great. I'm looking forward to working with it as a remote.

 

I installed it on my Ipad2 but cannot get any volume from it. Yes, the volume is turned up on my Ipad... Under "Mast Volume" it says "No Volume Available". Plus that little menu icon is missing frothe upper right corner. Instead it says "Menu" with only copy, paste, and info options under it.

 

Any suggestions?

 

 

Now it seems to be working.... Strange. Anyway, it sounds great!
