Postby Ben [Camel Audio]; Fri Jan 23, 2009 4:28 pm Alchemy Preset Requests

This thread is a place for requests of presets for Alchemy. To have the best chance of your request being met, please be as specific as possible about the nature of the sounds you'd like to have. You should either provide a link to a piece of music and give the exact time in minutes and seconds at which the sound you'd like comes in, together with a description of what the sound is, or alternatively refer to another instrument and the name of a preset. You can request as many sounds as you like. Without these specific details its unlikely that your wishes will be fulfilled. Even if you do, then we don't guarentee that we will provide the sounds, since the main focus will be on creating sounds that you've never heard before, but some sound designers like to hear examples of this kind to give them an idea of a direction to go in - so there's a good chance - especially if other users are keen to hear the given kind of sound.

I'd really like a top notch pan pipes preset.

In fact, I'd love an expansion set of quality ethnic wind instrument emulations.

Since you ask :)

Simple basses, like one used in this track:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKwt3rv7GfM
Also the strings which start at 1:00.

More pads:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_D-Rp81JB0

And pads at 00:50
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zu6dC8UGh4

There is a few pads, some sidechained/lfo'd.

And more pads/soundscapes that aren't too weird. Like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAOw3wLOFEI

More simple/short basses usable for fast sequenzes.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9W4gWTJY9c
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfa6syEBlB8


And more plucky sounds and short leads (eg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAOw3wLOFEI at 3:45. Also more damped-piano like)

Sorry to double post, but to explain my previous post a bit:

I'll quote bmanic who had a pretty decent comment about the pads:
Alchemy might be worth a look but it has more "weird" pads and sound scapes than the typical


You defiently need more of the usable (and probably slightly more generic?) if you want to make an impact on the market.

Same goes for most of the other sounds such as leads and basses.

No doubt you can do it, take ArtVera's angelic pad: angelic_pad.mp3

Its a monster sound, interesting while still keeping a standard.
Obviously not everything should be as fat as this, also some less heavy background pads. I think the links to the videos in my above posts shows what i mean rather well :)

I hope you understand my point. Of course there should be weirder sides of alchemy, of course there should be pan-flutes, of course there should be weird piano sounds, but there should also be some more generic stuff to show that alchemy can do something for both worlds.

Hey guys. I did a bit of experimenting with the additive part, and used it to do a Wall E vocal sound like from the movie. Enjoy

personally I feel that Alchemy needs a strong and extensive preset selection set (that are included in the basic package) to make an impact on the market to show the world the quality, potential and originality of what alchemy has to offer.

Alchemy obviously has some new tricks up its sleeve but I feel that people need starting blocks to get into the process of sound design. By having a relativly limited and exotic preset list as the core set as is currently the case I think alchemy is going to struggle somewhat to generate a broad and expanding (average) userbase as opposed to a smaller very happy qualified set of 'sound designers' who absolutely love it.

My solution is more presets, loads more, that come as default on the basic package (the average user, I feel, won't feel inclined to purchase more presets and so won't ever hear what alchemy has to offer unless they are synth patch sound designers).

Sieving through lists of random user generated presets is rather hit and miss and an unsatisfactory way of filling this void.

sorry for the clutter guys. the thread names confused me.

For the Wall E thing I posted, the preset and link to an example are in the preset sharing thread.

Here it is:

This is very Vangelis-like, isn't it?

Maybe you can get something similar by modifying the preset called Replicant (Under Synth category)

I enthusiastically echo fjolle's sentiments for smooth, un-weird pads, more suitable to scoring/film and pop or ambient work. I'm having a hard time filling the pad void with Alchemy, and this would be my #1 request. I'll try to find some examples too.

I'd suggest diversity instead of making tons of the same kind of experimental presets... Alchemy has the potential to be an all-around synth, it just needs to be more "inspiring"... Clean, producer quality sounds are a must for this, even if it will require the users to download vast sized sample expansion packs to achieve that

note: Importing sfz files from Cakewalk stuff proved to be interesting for me, as they are a bit simpler
