I'd pay the upgrade fee if it were in version 2 ;)

Did someone say Linux? I think that almost makes 10 requests in 3 years ... :)

The main problem is not porting the plugin - that is relatively easy. It's the extra time required to test Alchemy properly (and fix Linux only bugs), which is a really significant amount of work for such a complicated plugin. That said, we will continue to consider it because it would be great to provide new tools to Linux users.

So is anyone successfully using Alchemy on Linux now, with Wine? I have not tested it recently, but it was certainly working with an earlier version ...

Peace,
Andy.

There are a lot of pepole making music with Linux. They just stopped making requests because nobody was listening. :)

Works fine here (current Ubuntu 32 bit and Arch 64 bit, REAPER 4.15 with Wine). :)

There are some small glitches under Gnome at times when the preset and sample menus grow too large but this can be worked around.

yay! Almost double figures :D Works OK under wine here, but I get CPU spikes frequently causing crashing and audio dropouts (just with WINE in general, not the plugin) so have got Renoise instead.

It's a fine balance between making your voice heard, and being really annoying :)

But do keep trying. Aside from the extra work, it needs to pay for itself in terms of sales but it's a big risk without knowing there are enough users interested (this goes for all commercial developers, not just Camel).

Anyway, good to know it's still working on some systems. I assume you mean v1.25? Surprised that the GDI+ dependency hasn't caused any problems or does Wine now have GDI+ support?

Peace,
Andy.

For the Alchemy Mobile Synth -
add support for Akai Professional SynthStation 25 (for iPhone/iPod Touch).
Remix pads could be mapped to the 8 dedicated SynthStation buttons which would mean you could dedicate the iPhone screen to the morph or other controls. Lots of interesting possibilities.

The street price of the Akai Professional SynthStation 25 currently around $70 USD

Planning on getting one when next payday.

The Synthstation 25 is pretty cool, but it does not provide Core MIDI support which most newer iOS controllers do.

However, it is possible to use the Synthstation 25 + Alchemy Mobile with MIDI Bridge from Audeonic:

http://www.audeonic.com/

If the Synthstation 25 is sending out MIDI CC messages, we may include MIDI learn in a future update so the controls could be used with the remix pad or slider pages.

Peace,
Andy.

My working version of the alchemy.dll is still at 1.20.1 so I just installed 1.25 on an almost plain Arch/Wine system. After a few tests this version seems to run stable as well. I have not installed anything in this wine directory besides REAPER so all it looks like wine has got everything Alchemy needs. :)

Sorry if this has been said before but how about being able to drag and drop samples into Alchemy. I know you can import samples using different methods (granular, additive, spectral) so that probably makes things a little more complicated but how about having on the import window an area where you can drop the sample.

So basically when you open the import window you first select the import mode, then you would drag the sample to a 'drag and drop area' and then click import. Hopefully I'm making some sense here.

Three feature requests:

1) Be able to change the grain window over time, ie, morph between the window types.

2) Dedicated grain shape control for user-definable grain windows, similar in concept to an ADSR; also, it may make feature request #1 easier.

3) Bi-polar sequencers.

"When it's ready" is the best answer we can give. Beta testing will likely start this week. Difficult to say when first public release candidate will be ready, or the official release.

Peace,
Andy.

Hah! For that you get the short version of the same answer:

When it's ready.
