Camel Audio Announces Updated Sound Sets for Alchemy, Ends Development of Chameleon 5000
Camel Audio announces Luftrum: Ambient is “a journey between worlds, from summer afternoons to the icy depths of space.” With dense washes of warm, shimmering pads and soundscapes, gentle guitar and piano arpeggios, music boxes, delicate, and ethereal sound effects that totter between beauty and despair, this is a particularly inspiring collection for the ambient musician, film, TV or game soundtrack composer.
Also new is Cameleon: Remixed, a “retro feast of additive resynthesis and morphing.” Alchemy users can now enjoy 200 presets hand-picked from the rich archive of evolving Cameleon 5000 sounds. As expected given its heritage, Cameleon: Remixed offers plenty of evolving pads and soundscapes with unique sonic flavours, along with morphed hybrids and FX exotica.
And according to Camel: “All good things must come to end, and with regret we have decided to officially end development and support of Cameleon 5000. It’s been a great ride, but recent changes to hosts, the move to 64-bit support for plug-ins and our focus on Alchemy make it difficult for us to keep Cameleon going, especially with such a small team. The good news is that Alchemy can do everything that Cameleon can, and Paul has written a new section of the Alchemy Manual for Cameleon users. We are giving all Cameleon owners Alchemy Player, Cameleon: Remixed and the entire Cameleon factory library converted to Alchemy format – all for free. Cameleon owners should log in to download.”
