Patchpool has released the Aqualignum sound library for Camel Audio's Alchemy.

Aqualignum combines Waterphone samples from Simon Stockhausen's MachFive library
Scattered Entity Vol. 1 with original oud samples, an Arab string instrument especially multi-sampled for this library.

This library contains 56 patches (including 1 variation) making use of 1.76 GB of samples, resynthesized sounds and electronic derivatives. Multi-sampled 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 notes (violin bow), scraped strings 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.

Simon Stockhausen has made 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 their 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.

Specs:

  • 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, the microphone signals of all oud samples were phase-aligned which improves the stereo picture, enhances the transparency of the sound and makes for snappier transients.
  • 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: € 38. This library requires the full version of Alchemy (version 1.55 and higher). It does not work with the Alchemy player version.
