SamplesLoops Soundset Warped Strings for Alchemy released on patchpool

Hi All,
I just released my new soundset for Alchemy on patchpool:



The soundset Warped Strings for Alchemy is the second in a series focussing on specific materials and single instruments. For this soundset an acoustic Western Guitar was multisampled, treating it with all sorts of tools to create unique sounding real and unreal instruments, otherworldly textures, groovy sequences, beautiful and dark soundscapes and cinematic pad sounds. Multiple velocity layers and Round Robin variations were produced for the creation of expressive and organic sounding instruments.
All samples were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones and processed with native and outboard gear, to make the best out of the recorded audio material. A wide variety of electronic textures derived form the recorded guitar sounds were produced and often combined with the original samples and sounds resynthed inside Alchemy.

As in all my soundsets for Alchemy I make 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 Controller. This enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds and shape it according to his needs and preferences. Also the patches can 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. You can view/download the PDF for Warped Strings with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and description for each patch here.

1.59 GB of original samples - source material:
  • Plucked Guitar using various objects like coins, screwdrivers

Dear Alchemists,

Today I distributed the first update for one of my Alchemy soundsets: Warped Strings.

Some of you might already have downloaded and installed the latest Beta version of Alchemy which is available to Alchemy customers via their Camel Audio support account.
In Alchemy 1.50 a new Preset Browser is introduced, this also means that the subcategories I added to all my Alchemy soundsets do not exist anymore (which I regret a lot).

Alchemist losan - who some of you will know from the KVR and NI forums - was so incredibly kind to tag all the presets from Warped Strings, as I am useless at this, I can't work with tags and keywords to find my sounds to be honest and I only use my own stuff anyway. losan also added some short descriptions and playing tips from my pdf file.

You can now browse through your presets using keywords for articulations, timbre or type in the sounddesigner you're looking for - so type in e.g. "Simon Stockhausen" in the search field and all my presets will appear. Or browse by Sound Library to see all presets from Warped Strings in one list.

Please note: These presets will only work with the current Beta version, not with any former version of Alchemy, so if you're still using the release version (1.25) don't install these new presets.

The download folder only contains the acp and aaz-files not the samples, you don't need to re-install the samples only the new presets. After unzipping the file you downloaded, place the contained folder "Warped Strings" here and substitute the existing folder:

Mac: HD(not user)/Library/Application Support/Camel Audio/Alchemy/Presets
Windows: PathToDataDirectory/Alchemy.data/Presets/

Then use the function "Scan for New Presets" from the File Menue and you'll be ready to go and make full use of the new browsing system.

More updates for my other soundsets will follow.

I sent a mail to all Warped Strings customers, I hope I don't get too many bounces.
