Introducing Alchemy in GarageBand
Master the basics of your mobile music studio’s exciting new synth
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.
