Flux Alchemist v3


Alchemist – Reinventing Multiband Dynamics

Be it a serious problem with the dynamics in a mix, a delicate mastering assignment, or a situation with complicated dynamics, Alchemist provides everything you need in order to accomplish this.  Designed with professional master and re-mastering applications in mind, the intricate design, superior workflow and sonic perfection, makes Alchemist tailored for the high demands of today’s music and pro-audio industry.


Alchemist operates as a single broadband processor or as a full-scale multiband processor offering up to five individual bands.  Each band presents a complete dynamic processing section including: compressor, expander, de-compressor and de-expander, all working in parallel employing independent Angel’s share and Hysteresis parameters for each section.

Multiband Features

Alchemist’s five bands are divided carefully fine tuned IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) crossovers with selectable slopes (from 18db per octave to 54dB per octave), nd variable corner frequencies, each of them providing:

  • Flux:: cored dynamics processors all operating in parallel:
    • Compressor
    • De-Compressor
    • Expander
    • De-Expander
  • The BitterSweet Transient Designer
  • MS (mid/side) Control
  • Auto Delay (Introduces a delay line in the processed signal allowing zero attack time)
  • Selectable level detection mode and dynamics detection profile
  • Dynamics processing envelope control (Attack, Hold release with optional Auto mode)
Signal Processing Features
  • Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.
  • Phase invert of the processed signal.
  • Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original “peak” into the processed signal.
  • Clipper, a discrete peak limiter at the very last stage of the processing chain rounding off the peaks smooth and musically.
  • Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal.


Processing Specifications

Alchemist v3, as all Flux:: plug-ins, provide

  • Up to 8 channels Input/Output.
  • 64-bits internal floating point processing.
