- [Voiceover] Alchemy was a ground breaking new synth…that shipped with Logic Pro 10.2…and it only took one point release…to get some enhancements.…Remember Apple acquired this technology…from another synth manufacturer…and folded it into Logic Pro.…So, I assume we'll continue to get updates…as the software engineers come up with new…and exciting ways to integrate Alchemy…to the Logic workflow.…There's a few new enhancements to Alchemy…in Logic 10.1 and they are actually kind of related.…The first one is that you can now drag…and drop Apple Loops right into Alchemy…and use them for spectral synthesis.…
So, if we go over and choose an Apple Loop…from our Apple Loops menu,…let's check out the Vibes for example…and let me hear Lounge Vibes 06.…(light, calm electronic music)…So, we can take this Apple Loop…and drop it into Alchemy…and really manipulate this with spectral synthesis.…So, now I've chosen my Apple Loop,…we'll go over here and we'll instantiate…an Alchemy synth plugin on the track.…
So, here we are in the Advanced tab.…
