Alchemistry Metallurgy for Alchemy is the first library in a series focussing on specific materials and single instruments. First released in late 2011, the content was updated in February 2014, adding 1.25 GB of samples, mainly borrowed from the sound library Scattered Entity Vol. 1 for MachFive, plus 300 MB of new bell samples.
This library now contains 84 patches with 8 variations each in the Remix Pad and focusses on metallic sounds derived from real instruments, metal objects and industrial field recordings. This patch collection keeps the balance between real sounding metal instruments, otherworldly textures and wondrous soundscapes using also some processed electronic derivatives of the sampled materials.
All sounds are sample-based, some patches use the resynthesis features in Alchemy. You will find many patches and snapshots which sound warm, delicate and beautiful, characteristics one may not normally associate with metallic sounds.
