Mac|Life - - CONTENTS - Mark Billen

Back in 2015 you may have heard about and won­dered why Ap­ple ac­quired mu­sic plugin maker Camel Au­dio, which made a prod­uct called Alchemy. Fast-for­ward a lit­tle and Alchemy has not only been added to Logic Pro X in Au­gust 2016, but now GarageBand for iOS, too.

GarageBand 2.2 gives you a full mo­bile ver­sion of the soft­ware, in­te­grated into Ap­ple’s mu­sic cre­ation app as a vir­tual synth that boasts a wealth of sounds to dis­cover. Alchemy fea­tures an eight-way Trans­form Pad that can be con­trolled with gy­ro­scopic mo­tion to ap­ply fluid real-time ef­fects.

In this in­tro­duc­tory guide we’ll pick out Alchemy Synth’s key fea­tures and ex­plain how to con­trol the myr­iad pos­si­ble sounds.
