  • Warped Strings for Alchemy

    The soundset Warped Strings for Alchemy is the second in a series focussing on specific materials and single instruments. For this soundset an acoustic Western Guitar was multisampled, treating it with all sorts of tools to create unique sounding real and unreal instruments, otherworldly textures, groovy sequences, beautiful and dark soundscapes and cinematic pad sounds. Multiple velocity layers and Round Robin variations were produced for the creation of expressive and organic sounding instruments.
    All samples were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones and processed with native and outboard gear, to make the best out of the recorded audio material. A wide variety of electronic textures derived form the recorded guitar sounds were produced and often combined with the original samples and sounds resynthed inside Alchemy.

    As in all my soundsets for Alchemy I make extensive use of Alchemy's complex modulation possibilities and Filters, often intermodulating LFOs/MSEGs/Sequencers with each other and assigning numerous parameters to a single Controller. This enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds and shape it according to his needs and preferences. Also the patches can serve as a starting point for the user's own creations when loading new samples into them and then using the pre-assigned Controllers and Snapshots in the Remix Pad. You can view/download the PDF for Warped Strings with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and description for each patch here.

    For Alchemy version 1.50 which was released in Septembre 2012 all presets were tagged so that ths user can browse the presets from this set using keywords and categories.

  • All demos were produced entirely with Alchemy using only patches from Warped Strings, no post-processing was applied apart from a Limiter on the Outputs. Only one demo uses external processing as stated in the title of the track and the last demo in the widget has some drums from my soundset Tremendous Beatz for Tremor.

  • Here are some videos using sounds from Warped Strings:

  • So far, the sounds are fantastic, as usual. You could spend $50 on one such instrument at Soniccouture or another of those sample sites, and here you have over fifty to play with! Keep it coming at such reasonable prices! The point is, this is sampler quality, not just synth patches.

    I was one of the early buyers and I just downloaded the set and have been playing with it all afternoon. This is another fantastic set that defies a simple description, so many of the presets do not at all seem evocative of strings - warped, mangled or otherwise. My own preferences for the bizarre have a feast in this batch, but for those who prefer more instrumental sounds there are plenty. And just a small nudge of the variations pads yields an unearthly modification.

    - Shrewd value reviewer and warped player

    This is excellent work, quality stuff!! In fact well above the level of many other commercial offerings for Alchemy, and the price is very fair.

    - Unwarped Warped String review

    Warped Strings is the alchemical artistic expression that scrapes, smacks, bows, beats and bends the linguistic description.

    - A tongue unstrung by Warped Strings

    WARPED STRINGS is one bloody amazing bank...It sounds pristine, you can "feel" the time that went into the sound design, it inspires creativity and playing, and I just love the combination of acoustic string sources with the various types of sound manipulation Simon does.

    - Bloody accurate reviewer

    I have barely touched the surface of Warped Strings yet and what I've heard is absolutely fantastic! Stunning, innovative and very touching sounds that still leave room for other instruments in a composition - a great combination!

    - Enthusiastic superficial reviewer

    A superbly designed set of sounds for one of the very best virtual synths out there... This sound bank exudes great attention to detail, subtlety and warmth. All the sounds use the various modulation possibilities within Alchemy very effectively and creatively....each patch has so many ways you can develop and change it to suit your needs. Possibly more than anything else, the sounds here are very 'useable' in a wide variety of musical genres. Highly recommended.

    - Genre neutral review full of useful praise
