So today, I decided to try another app to try and see if it's DM-1 or Alchemy. I chose Magellan. I recorded something at 60 BPM and it was pasted at some completely different BPM. I then created a quick file at 90 BPM, and it pasted into Alchemy at 167 BPM.
The pasted version's audio is correct, though. It's not sped up. But if I set the Alchemy tempo down to 60 BPM, it plays the pasted audio too slowly and pitches everything down.
Am I doing something wrong? Is this a bug in Alchemy? Is it a bug with the other apps in how they implemented Sonoma Copy? Thanks.

Sorry for the delay getting back to you about this. I don't have an answer at the moment, but will check it out. We're working on an update to Alchemy Mobile so if the bug is reproducible (sounds like it is!), then it's a good time to report it.

Sorry. I use Alchemy a lot so it tends to be the app I use for testing things out.

Yes I can reproduce the problem when pasting a loop from DM-1. Using a test loop of 1 bar at 80 BPM Alchemy Mobile sets the tempo to double or 160 BPM. The size of the loop in samples when exported from DM-1 via iTunes is correct (132300 samples) so I'm sure why this would occur.
We won't be fixing the current version of Alchemy Mobile as we're working on the 2.0 update now. Loops are handled differently in the updated version, so the bug won't occur.
Not sure what the release date is for v2.0 but it should be relatively soon.

Any leaks on what will be in 2.0? Ahh, I've been meaning to start a post on a wishlist. Though the app is already fantastic. But I use it enough that there are features I would find helpful. My biggest one is being able to truly save our own patches with all 8 pads defined. And an easy way to get user patches in/out of the app.

I also strongly hope there will be Auduiobus support!! This will make possible to overcome many of the limitations of Alchemy Mobile in terms of longer and more structured compositions possibilities. The great sound in Alchemy, REALLY deserve this feature IMHO.

I don't think you will feel limited with the features we're adding to v2.0

We will talk about new features when it's ready for release. Not long to go now!
Also, I have some soundbanks that I would like to use in mobile from desktop, but they consist of folders and files in .acp format.....how do I get these back to the compressed bundled .CamelSounds file format
On the Alchemy File menu is an option to "Save as CamelSounds". See the "Transfer Custom Sounds" section on this page of our FAQ section:
