Camel Audio has announced Alchemy Player v1.55, a major update to their free Alchemy Sound Library and SFZ player synthesizer. They say that Alchemy Player v1.5 is designed to keep inspiration flowing with a fully-featured preset browser, 200 presets, faster preset loading times, improved remote control from the Alchemy iOS app, and many more enhancements.
Here's the details in Camel Audio's own words...
The new browser is probably the most fully-featured sound browser available anywhere, allowing users to find all their slow attack strings, glitchy dubstep basses, tempo-synched warm pads, or whatever they need in a matter of seconds. All previously-released Camel Audio presets have been carefully tagged by category,subcategory, genre, sound library, sound designer, articulation, and timbre. Finding favourites is a breeze -- simply rate presets with a single click and then sort by rating. Users can add tags to make it easy to call up presets associated with a particular project or live set, and can also add comments to presets with playing tips or other notes. Track down the perfect sound in a host of different ways with this powerful browser.
DEDICATED iOS REMOTE
Alchemy Player v1.55 with the latest update to Alchemy on iOS offers even smoother and more expressive remote control. Change preset, move the remix pad, and access performance controls -- all without leaving the comfort of your controller keyboard. Previously the domain of multi-thousand dollar devices, polyphonic pitch bend is new to this update, and offers an amazingly expressive way of playing instruments -- especially when combined with polyphonic aftertouch.
