Postby Sampleconstruct; Mon May 05, 2014 2:54 am Aqualignum for Alchemy released on patchpool

Dear patchpool friends,

I just released a new library for Alchemy:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpSPnYD6nkw

Aqualignum for Alchemy combines waterphone samples from my MachFive library Scattered Entity Vol. 1 with original Oud samples, an Arab string instrument especially multisampled for this library.

The mysterious and haunting tones of the waterphone meet the warm embracing string sounds of the orient. Tradition melds with futurism, water, wood and metal compose Aqualignum. This library contains 56 patches (including 1 variation) making use of 1.76 GB of samples, resynthesized sounds and electronic derivatives. Multisampled string instruments derived from the oud with up to 5 velocity layers and 3x round robin (variations per sample), calm and dark drones, beautiful and fragile waterphone pads, ominous and evocative soundscapes, futuristic textures and metallic percussion instruments are contained in this set.

The oud articulations include plectrum-picked strings (played with a special oud plectrum), finger-plucked vibrato tones, up and down slides, tremoli, bowed oud (violin bow) and some phrases. The waterphone was played with two differently sized bows creating all kinds of arpeggio textures with water-modulated decay-phases, scraping and moaning metal sounds, long sustained notes played with a violin bow for creating multisampled tonal pad sounds and the instrument was beaten with various beaters for metallic percussion sounds and bass tones.

As in all my soundsets for Alchemy I make extensive use of Alchemy's complex modulation possibilities and filters, often intermodulating LFOs/MSEGs/sequencers with each other and assigning numerous parameters to a single Performance Controller. This enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds and shape it according to his/her needs and preferences. The patches can also serve as a starting point for the user's own creations when loading new samples into them and then using the pre-assigned controllers and snapshots in the Remix Pad.

You can view/download the PDF for Aqualignum with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and deteiled descriptions for each patch here.

Aqualignum Specs:
    • 1.76 Gigabytes of samples (wav) and resynthesized files (.aaz)
    • 56 patches (including 1 variation) with 8 variations each in Alchemy's Remix Pad, all Performance Controllers and both x/y-pads are assigned for each patch.
    • Delivery: download - RAR-archive in two parts for better download handling.
    • Price (paypal): € 38 EUR

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, all microphone signals for the oud samples were phase-aligned which improves the stereo picture, enhances the transparency of the sound and makes for snappier transients.

Please note: This library requires the full version of Alchemy (version 1.55 and higher). It does not work with the Alchemy player version.

Product page.

All demos were produced entirely with Alchemy using only patches from Aqualignum, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation if several instances of Alchemy were used in a track.

New demo combining 7 Alchemy patches - waterphone trios - each one containing 3 waterphone samples split across the keyboard, layering normal sampling and granular mode, looping back and forth only the decay phase of each sample with all those lovely watery modulations:

Two new Alchemy patches from Aqualignum in this demo track. The Oud patch contains mulstisampled tremoli, a different articulation in each of the 3 sources (timbre difference due to the pluck position of the right hand), there is also an automorph function available which lets LFOs do the morphing/x-fading between the sources.

Demo for patch "Waterphone Long Bow Pad" which uses multisampled bowing samples (13 pitches), played with a violin bow. Some of the samples are up to a minute long, so playing long notes will result in ever evolving timbre changes. The patch uses a sampling and a granular source with the same sfz - the rhythmical sound in the demo is the same patch just using a rhythmical snapshot, the other instance of Alchemy morphs through the other snaps.

Demo for patch "Oud Slide Synth" - 4 Oud slides in 4 sources, velocity can determine the amount/length of the glissando in each source:

Demo for Alchemy patch "Waterphone Metal Hits Split", samples of hitting the waterphone bars with various beaters, split across the keyboard. In the demo I use 3 instances of Alchemy each one playing one snapshot:

Demo for patch "Oud Granular Trills", two instances of Alchemy were used, the pad sound is playing snapshot 4 (frozen grains), the trill sounds are created by morphing through some of the other snaps.

Here comes an impro with a multisampled Oud patch from Aqualignum, all 6 open (double)strings and one fretted string (G3) were sampled at 5 velocity layers and 3x round robin (3 variations per sample), so there are 105 samples in this patch.

More multisampled Oud coming, like up and down slides with 2x round robin and vibrato tones with 3x round robin.
