Why nobody adds a xy pad like alchemy to blend between all layers? :(
Can't you use FL's Fruity X-Y Controller for that? Or build something in Patcher?

This looks amazing, I've been looking for a new granular synth.
Signatures are so early 2000s.

Yeah of course. I can also use different synths for each synthesis type :P

Synthmaster has an XY pad I think...
I don’t know anyone off the top of my head who’s copied the 8Pad morphing stuff Alchemy yet.

I noticed that in v2 adjusting the cutoff knob produces some zipper noise and artefacts. Especially on low frequencies and when you dial fast. Surgeon filter is quite steppy now. Something we didn't have in v1.

Noooo!! This is by design! Many people complained about the crystal clear sound of Pigments. We wanted more noise, more dirt and grit and hell now we got it!!

This looks like an awesome (free!) update, super happy about unison for the analog engine, and now a sample engine with granular. Sweeeeeeeet. :)
Thanks, Arturia!
