Perhaps not surprising. What did they do?
Cameleon synth ... later updated to Alchemy. And a couple of effect plugins, which I thought were mediocre.
That's pretty much it. Not a lot for so many years.

That said, Alchemy is one of my foundation synths. It's on pretty much everything I do.

Very sad and very surprising news! Alchemy is pretty much my primary synth for Ambient music!
Very bad news.. I had hi hopes they would release something big any time soon.. like a new version of Alchemy...
There is really no other synth to fill their spot to be honest..

I wonder what was the reason for them to lay down camel audio ?
No info on the website either... did they not pay taxes or what ?

rumours suggest they have been being sold to another "big company" it would make sense..because of the lack of information on the website.

Alchemy is my main synth too. Supposedly Alchemy 2 was on the horizon, so that "could" be launched by a new owner.

Since I like to manipulate samples, in the future this could end up as my replacement for Alchemy:

Given I've been using their tools for over a decade, this is definitely a day-one purchase! Sweet!

Apple appears to have acquired Camel Audio.

Yeah I saw that yesterday, appears that Alchemy is now part of Logic X, which is cool except that I'm still running Logic 9 since my computer is too old.  :o  Oh well, I guess I should complain like all the PC guys.  ;D
Take care.

I've seen reports that Alchemy still runs well on Windows 10, so there's hope I can still use it once Win 7 is no longer supported.

Still... first Logic, now Alchemy...  :'(  complain, complain, complain... :o

You want to complain, whenever I see someone mention the word Alchemy in audio software I was think of this:



Best sample editing software on the mac, I think even today it has few rivals and its been gone since the 90s.  :(

Take care.
