Camel Audio Alchemy Mobile for iPhone/iPad
Alchemy Mobile is designed to let you turn your iPhone/iPad into a synthesizer.
With the Pro Upgrade ($19.99/€15.99/£13.99), you can remotely control Alchemy or the free Alchemy Player on your desktop computer. This is the first iPhone App to offer a dedicated touch remote feature for a desktop synth, according to Camel Audio.
You can use the remix pad to morph between sound variations. 16 controls including cutoff, resonance, ADSR and effects parameters are selected for each preset.
External MIDI or Built In Keyboard
You can play the mini keyboard built into the app, which features scalable key size and one touch major and minor keys. You can also plug in an external Core MIDI keyboard.
Copy/Paste and Loop Player
Using Alchemy with other apps like NanoStudio and Garageband can be done with the included loop player. You can paste a loop from your sequencer into Alchemy Player, hit record, play in your part, and then paste the resulting loop back into the sequencer. Alchemy features exposé, which is designed to make switching between pages easy.
Synthesis Engine on iOS
The performance controls and remix pad are linked to a synthesis engine on iOS, which allows you to morph and change the sound in various ways. Alchemy's VA synth, sampler and granular and additive resynthesis are combined with an arpeggiator.
Expandable with Sound Libraries
The free version of Alchemy Mobile includes 25 sounds, with a further 25 available when you register for free with Camel Audio. You can expand Alchemy Mobile with a range of sound libraries such as BigTone, Cinematic and Arp Dimensions.
