Camel Audio Updates Cameleon 5000 To Version 1.7 (Universal Binary)
Camel Audio have updated their Cameleon 5000 additive synthesizer to version 1.7 with Universal Binary support. Cameleon 5000 is an additive synth, featuring resynthesis and sound morphing, which excels at pads and evolving textures and comes with a library of over 800 presets. At its heart is the morph square which allows you to morph between four different instruments at once. You can also use the morph timeline to create rythmic loops, evolving soundscapes and pads. Uniquely, Cameleon comes with a range of preset morph timelines, to make creating new sounds even easier.
The update also provides VST 2.4 compatibility, and includes improved standalone and RTAS performance, as well as minor bug fixes and other improvements. The update is also accompanied by a new bank of 70 presets and a new tutorial.
â€¢ Universal Binary support for Intel Macs
â€¢ VST 2.4 compatible
â€¢ Updated standalone and RTAS versions
â€¢ Knobs default to linear rather than circular mouse control
â€¢ Fixed bug (preset list now gets updated when saving a new preset)
â€¢ Other minor bug fixes and optimizations
The new preset bank ‘TC Elementals’ was designed by Tim Conrardy, one of Cameleon’s leading sound designers. The bank contains a wide range of sounds, including basses, guitars, ethnic instruments, distorted and crisp leads, a great acoustic piano and ballad electric piano. The pads range from warm sounds which fit unobtrusively into a mix to extreme ‘moving’ pads and atmospheres. There is also a wide range of sounds using microtonal scales, including input from acclaimed micro-tonal composer Robert Rich.
Tim has also written a new tutorial called “Cameleon Made easy” which gives quick and useful tips on making new sounds, and getting Cameleon to fit in an already busy mix.
The update is free to all registered users; the full version will set you back $199 / â‚¬187 / Â£128. More information on the Camel Audio Cameleon 5000 1.7 update.
