Alchemy RE support thread

Hey there, I have been considering buying Reason for years now. The two things holding me back was lack of audio recording and that I would not be able to use my only software synth (I am a hardware synth guy) Alchemy.

So when I learned about Rack Extensions I was jumping up and down from joy. Sure I have been always aware of Rewire, but I was no big fan of braking my workflow or paying for 2 different daws.

Now that audio recording is finally possible for Reason I am so close to making that purchase because I love reason since version 2.5 that I first used it.

So I am opening this thread , after opening this thread -> in Alchemy forums and been told that is up to P to lift restriction that make it impossible currently for Alchemy developers to bring this amazing synth (easily the most powerful software synthesizer out there) to Reason.

Bare in mind I know Rack Extensions is a extremely new features not even yet released , and that there is still work to be done till its considered mature or enough to please most VST/AU developers out there . I am not an impatient guy , but I am too excited about this to not just create this thread as a place of many Alchemy fans to voice their interest.

I am sure this marriage between Reason and Alchemy will greatly benefit both sides. As always use this thread to voice your ideas, advice, concerns and opinions.

Probably the synth I like to see in Reason the most. Hopefully, it will be possible at some point.

I've demoed Alchemy extensively, and use it a lot in college. I would also love to see this as a rack extension. a couple of developers have dropped hints regarding the finicky nature of the GUI restrictions, but the rack extension format is still in it's early days, so over time I expect that propellerheads will concentrate on improving the rack extension format.

Yeah, the camel guys have issues with the RE format at the moment and alchemy doesn't look like happening until the DEV evolves a bit...I do have it on good authority that the guys will be bringing one of their other plugins to the table maybe phat or space.

DEV? You mean SDK?

Of all the soft synths out there Alchemy would be the one I'd most like to see as a R.E.

It would be superb to see the Camel Audio guys onboard for RE, its deffinately one of the best. ;-P I think there's been a few developers that have complained a bit about the actual rack size and various restrictions etc etc.. However i would say to any of these plug in developers, your all clever guys "Make It Work" You have a massive community of Reason users and lets face it if you had something like Alchemy available on the rack its a huge sales potential untapped there for the taking!! LOL
Burn a bit of midnight oil and make it so...

Lightbulb Uhhhhh....ReWire???!!!

I use Alchemy and Reason all the time.

Since I use X1 I just ReWire Reason in and Use any and ALL VSTs I want.

Using Reason alone all by itself is WAY too restrictive. Even when the
REs become available.

Reason is good but it is not a be all / end all for serious music.

I would love to see Alchemy in Reason, but removing the restrictions is the reason, they had not done VST's in the first place. So the programmers of third party VST's are going to have to learn to work around the resrtictions and become fleible at learning PH coding. If not; they will miss the largest format change in a while.
