“Just a quick note to say thanks for the fantastic sound-bank.  I got the Himalaya Pads collection today from Camel Audio and it is truly mind-blowing.  Should keep me busy for a while. Best wishes.

The original Vol 1 collection:

“A great collection of alchemy   presets. your sounds are among my favourite third-party synth presets (i also own  your synth squad and tassman collections). Keep up the good work.”

R.G. from Germany (via email)

"I have to say... this really is definitely my favourite bank on Alchemy ......I am glad I can find lots of use for your presets...hoping you make more banks for Alchemy." RSP (via email)

" These are really,REALLY good. I could hear a great analog legacy in the demos's but these also exude and excel in combining a creamy Tomita-like goodness with some very new, modern, abstract textures (especially via Kore, where I principally live)." Loopy C (via email)

"many thanks for the excellent sounds. It'll take quite some time to
really explore the depths of these patches -- but it'll be time well
and enjoyingly spent!

HT from Finland (via email)"

Alchemy ‘PADS VOL1’  - a new sound bank is released ! UPDATED

Camel Audio’s Alchemy is primed with features that make the smoothest and lushest pads. And so, this collection of presets is designed to provide smooth, playable and practical sounds. All presets have musical and carefully designed Remix Pads assignments which when swept in a clockwise direction will produce interesting timbre and dynamic changes.

This collection consists of factory samples, custom samples (about 12MB), additive, granular and VA sources.


This sound bank is now available with Kore sound presets. The conversion was performed by ‘aMused’ and ‘losan’, KVR forum members. Many thanks to you for the time and effort!
