Granular Synthesis with Alchemy: Swooshes

As part of a recent pre-production phase I spent a lot of time experimenting with CamelAudio's Alchemy.

The following swooshes were created by applying Alchemy's granular synthesis to various sources including fireworks, explosions, and waves. Various modulations were then applied to enhance the swoosh and rippling effect.

This sound texture was created using Alchemy with recordings from a Daytona race. The recordings were cut up, processed, put through Alchemy's granular synthesis and DSP modules and then triggered and layered via midi:
