I'm in the midst of the free trial for Alchemy by Camel Audio and I have to say it is the most flexible, feature rich, easy-to-use synth I have ever interacted with. Its a sampler and is real flexible with its granular synthesis in the oscillator section. it also does additive synthesis. The unison mode can stack 600 oscillators that can all be detuned and spread in real time. AND its easy on the cpu.

It doesn't do FM or Ring modulation as far as I can tell, but I just started to scratch the surface. The LFO's do go up to 220Hz however. Here's a link to the tutorial vids by one of my favorite sound designers. Just poke around the site to download the 'player' which you use to enable the [four week non-contiguous] trial of the full version.

Thanks for the tip Charles, I am looking into the videos now and it does indeed look impressive. It would make a fine companion along with the M50 and Karma no doubt. I am definately considering a purchase as it is a really good price for all of that sound power..

I picked up the alchemy player to try but the latency is just awful and I can not seem to tweak it so that it is at all usable.. Too bad, I really thought I was on to something here. Sad I might try it with another vst host other than reaper just to see if I can get it to work, Can anyone suggest a good free low latency host to try this with???

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that after a bunch of tweaking, I finally got Alchemy Player to work properly without the latency issue described in my other post.
I also got an IPADMini and downloaded the pro version of Alchemy mobile for it along with most of the sound packs. Very Happy

What about Komplete 9? I know this post was started over a year ago but does anyone have any imput on Komplete 9 or Komplete 9 Ultimate?
I only ask because I am thinking of purchasing a plugin to go with Logic 9.

I did the Player and the demo and was completely sold by it. Bought Alchemy complete with the Camel FX and absolutely love it. Compliments my Korgs & V-SynthGT perfectly and goes beyond other softsynths in range and simplicity. Adding CS Sample Tools for better editing/translating into. Been thinking about adding Galbanum wavetables to it and patchpool.de has a really good set along with others like Yuroun. It's really deep, flexible, simple to program and adds that extra layer to the other nine engines of Kronos.

I guess what I am wondering mostly is it overkill to add a plugin like Komplete when I have a Kronos and Logic 9?
I have heard alot of good things about Komplete and especially Kontakt.

I would suggest you start a thread on the topic you are looking into ...you should have much better luck in a thread that is on topic.
This thread is about alchemy those who use it may very well not ever heard of komplete or atbleast used it. Another thread dedicated to your inquiry will be a better idea.

I beat you to the punch, right after I posted that I started the next thread regarding the Komplete 9. Thank you for your response.

Even the new thread is slow as well. These areas don't have too much traffic.
