Alchemy = mind-blowing synthesis. It's that simple.... and Apple's reimagining of this deep instrument gives Logic users an exclusive, musical tool that ushers in a new era of music production. Learn Alchemy right here with David Earl!
Alchemy, unlike any other synth on the market, can do anything and everything in the world of electronic music. It has an amazing variety of synth engines, audio processing and modulation sources. Add to that virtually unlimited audio and control routings and what you end up with is a synth that can do it all... and do it well!
In this course by SFLogicNinja David Earl, he explains everything about Alchemy! As he illustrates the GUI, you learn all about the Browser and the powerful collection of synth and sampling engines. David shows you Alchemy's dynamic audio and sophisticated control/modulation routings before he dives into Alchemy's Global, Source, Modulation and Realtime Performance features.
Completing this course gives you the foundation you need to integrate Alchemy into your productions and begin building your own, unique sonic library of sounds. So sit back and learn Alchemy with trainer, Logic expert and producer, David Earl.

The course was good, but I was unable to follow along to some things because my version of Alchemy is newer than the one used in the course.
Some of the explanations were difficult to follow because they were brushed over, but I suppose the course is just meant as an overview. I look forward to watching the advanced course next.

It was OK. Amazing synth though!

Fun stuff! Great spending some time learning the ins and outs of Alchemy with you. The learning curve is very steep, however. I will load you up on my iPad and go through the course a few more times.

Dave Earl does a great job with this course. It is very in-depth for a complex subject. His expertise along with a relaxed attitude makes it enjoyable to follow along.

Great job on analyzing and assessing all the great perks that come along with the addition of Logic Pro X's newest added attachment to its software program. I feel now prepared to tackle and create new innovative beats towards my work flow.

I've been following David Earl (not literally of course) a.k.a SFLogicNinja for many years and this course really does justice to his teaching skills. Alchemy is a monster, an intimidating synth which could quite easily overwhelm newbies and ultimately send many confused students packing. Enter Mr Earl. He breaks it down piece by piece, then slowly builds it back up again bringing all the knowledge together at the end with a fun sound design lesson. Where I feel many tutorials fail, is the endless literal explanations of what knob A does and what slider B effects, which, although necessary, can been quite boring and ultimately sleep inducing. If your not interested, you ain't gonna learn jack! However, Dave does keep it interesting, and funny, and it feels like your exploring the synth together with him rather than being lectured to. Top job...again!

Great tutorial for an amazing and powerful software synth. This tutorial gets straight to the point and covers all the necessary information to start designing instruments and sounds. The given examples significantly demonstrate the concepts.
Wonderful, fun and nutritious. A nice walkthrough with SFLogicNinja. You learn how to use Alchemy and you do it with style.

First foray into Alchemy now that Apple jammed it into the Logic bundle (wow). Always enjoy SFLogic Ninja (or David Earl, whatever...) and his tutorials. Great stuff. Ready to dive in now.

I would say this is a good overview of an amazing new creative tool in Logic. David Earl is obviously enjoying himself as he explains (and plays with) all the various functions of Alchemy. This tutorial definitely has enough info to get you going although it would be really nice to see a more in-depth course showing all the features in greater detail as Alchemy has so much going on it definitely warrants it. Well worth checking this one out, though, if you plan on using Alchemy!!
