This advanced Alchemy course explores the more complex aspects of Logic's latest soft synth. Join SFLogicNinja and dive far down into Alchemy's exotic world of sound design where you learn this Apple synth's deepest secrets!
Alchemy is a true sound designer's dream and comes exclusively with Logic Pro and Logic guru & synth maestro David Earl, consulting with Alchemy experts the world over, has developed this comprehensive series of tutorials that uncover and demystify all of the sound manipulation tools and special effects that this new Apple synth has to offer.
You learn about Spectral Effects, Cross Synthesis, Morphing, Additive Synthesis, Partial Shaping and all kinds of other advanced techniques that'll greatly expand your sound design toolbox! So spend some quality time with this 31-tutorial course by Alchemy expert, David Earl, and learn how to create and magically transform your sounds.
Completing this course will inspire you to design new sonic universes and take your tracks to places that'll not only captivate you but, at the same time, enhance all of your productions.
If you are interested in knowing what Alchemy can do beyond being a standard synthesizer, this is the course to take. Honestly, I will probably never use 80% of the techniques explored in this course. Physical modeling? I'd rather use Sculpture. FM synthesis? Retro Synth or the EFM1 are more straightforward. Nonetheless, I love how David raises your awareness of the possibilities buried in Alchemy. In particular, the stuff on Spectral and Additive Synthesis did actually have me thinking, 'ok, I might get useful sounds from these techniques'. The possibilities for creating interesting soundscapes with the Morph Pad is another big takeaway. More generally, David sheds light on what spectral synthesis, granular synthesis, additive synthesis and formants actually are! (Still can't claim to fully 'get' spectral or granular though, but I can sound like I know what I'm talking about by using 'grains' and 'bins' in the right context). Cheers for this course, David. It was a fun 2 hours.

The course as good, but there's still a lot I don't understand about this synth.

Excellent! A lot of good ideas for creating your own music rather than just showing what all the knobs do.

excellent and in depth course on Alchemy, A very deep and Complicated synth with so many possibilities and David did a super job of going through all that Alchemy has to offer and more. Thank you Daivid, and Mac Pro video, honestly i've had to go through it several times. Thanks again
