Be it a serious problem with the dynamics in a mix, a delicate mastering assignment, or a situation with complicated dynamics, Alchemist provides everything you need in order to accomplish. Designed with professional mastering and re-mastering applications in mind, the intricate design, superior workflow, and sound perfection, makes Alchemist tailored for the high demands of today’s music and pro-audio industry,
Alchemist operates as a single broadband processor or as a full-scale multiband processor offering up to five individual bands. Each band presents a complete dynamic processing section including; compressor, expander, de-compressor and de-expander, all working in parallel employing independent Dynamic Ratio and L.I.D. (Level Independent Detector), two parameters that are kind of unique to dynamic processing, using the dynamic range content of the signal and not just the signal levels as standard processors do, parameters for each section.
Dynamics Ratio is controlling the amount of auto-ratio determined by the signal dynamics and the manual ratio setting. This literally opens the sound, increases the dynamic impression and keeps some crest by adjusting, in real time, the ratio of every dynamic processing section in regards to both the current ratio settings and the signal content (mainly dynamic range).
Level Independent Detection (L.I.D) controls the amount of auto-threshold determined by the signal dynamics and the manual threshold value, providing processing of the audio signal independently of the sound level and instead in regards to the signal dynamic range. A Maximum mode can be engaged on the L.I.D control, allowing for processing that accounts for the maximum values of both the standard and the L.I.D detection schemes.
As all Flux:: processors Alchemist provide up to eight channels of simultaneous processing for multichannel/surround operations
User Interface And Workflow
The user interface in Alchemist is designed for simplicity, and in addition to the five band sections, Alchemist presents a vast range of functions to simplify the workflow and to facilitate the achievement of exceptional results. Some of the key functions are:
Generous -/+ 48 dB input/output gain range
Phase invert of the processed signal
Dry/wet control offering true parallel dynamics processing
Discrete peak-limiter rounding peaks off in a smooth and musically fashion
True bypass control routing the incoming signal direct to the output for a smooth transition between clean and processed signal
Morphing slider for seamless transition between two explicit full parameter-sets
WARNING!!!: Before doing anything, make sure you do a backup of your lib
– Replace original lib at /usr/lib/ with provided lib for your OS
To locate /usr/lib/ got to “Go” menu in Finder, once there click “Go to folder” and type it exactly as it reads.
