Have you ever used the old Alchemy? Those libraries are insane. Best granular synthesis EVER!
Where can I find them?
They won't do you any good on your Apple tarnished version of Alchemy, lol. They don't work on Logic's Alchemy 2. The old library only works with the original Alchemy. I only know of two 3rd party libraries for Alchemy 2:
https://www.kvraudio.com/product/resurr ... -patchpool
and
https://www.pluginguru.com/products/alchemy-pp-mmdr/
alchemy was my first 3rd-party plugin (a million years ago). i would not give up the current alchemy for it, for any reason... :D

I already have both of them.
There's another one coming from Leap into the Void.
The Version 1 banks seem be be loadable into Version 2.
Haven't tried it yet, but saved some ressources for that venture.

Alchemy 2 supports legacy libraries (provided they are licensed of course). I'm running all my old Patchpool and Camel libraries inside it.

Massive X is amazing.
Three things are missing.
- 3rd party Library support.
- 32/2 setting for the lfo.
- Polyphonic performer (with save/load preset).

Wouldnt hurt (would be awesome) with the ability to insert the filters in slots abc aswell, with crossfade.

Thats it. 8)

That's basically 16/1 ;) But yeah some even slower things there could be welcome. Not sure why they capped the denominator to 4 as smallest, it could simply just go down to 1...

i am really loving Massive X. one thing i can't figure out though is how to fully use Remote Octave function in Maschine 2 software. sure, i can choose a "variation," but how do i switch between them during the course of a song? maybe i am missing something.
my newest sounds:

I quickly ran through the new presets on MX 1.3 last night after installing. Inspiring stuff.
Massive and Massive X both always sound beautiful--just a cut above.

Since I'm a tweaker, not a programmer, I appreciate that the browser has new updated presets labelled as "New presets from v. 1.1," New presets from v. 1.2," etc.

Question though: I'm aware that we can incorporate our own noise samples (and that there are samples included as well) but I'm not sure how to implement this feature. Is there a tutorial somewhere that breaks this down? Also, is this implemented similar to iZotope's Iris?

Cheers

When you open the Noisetables browser you will see +Add Folder. You can also drag&drop in the Noise area.

Great update, but really wish we could import our own wavetables. It's 2020. It's the number one reason I tend not to open my copy of MX. What's the hold up? I get the history of Massive, but landscape has changed on wavetable synthesis, customization is everything - especially with a synth that clearly wants to define itself as an sound design tool first.
What wavetables do you have that make that difference?
:help:
I actually have quite a lot of nice wavetables from analog synths, so when I’m in the mood I use Pigments 2 for that. However, MX does sound better to my ears.

Wavetables anyone?

Grab some free by ESW here: https://www.echosoundworks.com/eswcorewavetables

The urge for Massive X to support wavetables will only increase. :D
Never imagined we would get to play with toys in adulthood. :)

Nice to see new patches, but I'm still expecting weird issues with key retriggering, but that really seems to only be my system more than anything.
Take care :wink:

just by the way, I have over 7000 wavetables, so that would be a long list! :wink:
