Camel Audio has announced Alchemy Player v1.55, a major update their free Alchemy Sound Library and SFZ player synthesizer. 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.
The full-featured sound browser allows 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. 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 smoother and more expressive remote control. Change preset, move the remix pad, and access performance controls — all without leaving the comfort of a controller keyboard. Polyphonic pitch bend is new to this update, and offers a highly expressive way of playing instruments — especially when combined with polyphonic aftertouch.
