Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Alchemy is a powerful Macintosh 16-bit stereo sample editor which enables the user to retrieve, record, play back, edit, and store sampled sounds. Alchemy 3.0's Distributed Audio Network (DAN) enables you to archive the sounds for several different sampling devices and digital audio boards in a single, convenient sound library.

My apologies if this is Alchemy plugins for photoshop - I didn't have time to check.

So, Alchemy 3.0 here is the successor to Paint Alchemy 2? So many Mac apps called "Alchemy", it's confusing.

Just now, besides also those games with "Alchemy" in their names, I dug up an app also called "Alchemy", and it's a word ladder app, of all things. (Because, you see, it knows how to transform "LEAD" into "GOLD", among other things. Tongue)

Review (for an earlier version) from MacFormat 19 (Dec. 1994) added.

the larger package has sound example files to work with at various sample rates. the seemingly newer 3.01 package only has 'ASR-10' (ensoniq) in the network section and omits other samplers.

In all fairness, the pics here on this site (and on that listing) are from the now defunct Passport Software website. Parts of that website are still available on the internet archive, but the pictures are missing since some years. The above version is not a cracked software. It is simply an install that someone has archived. But without the disk it installed from the authorization scheme is broken.

There is a guy on eBay selling this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alchemy-3-0-Vintage-Sample-Editior-for-Mac-OS-...
..even using piks from here.
The copy I have installs on OS7-9, I can't vouch for the version above. I wonder if the upload on MG has changed as I know this page was modified some time ago. Maybe, has someone modified the code so a key is needed, hence the eBay listing which sells the key? Just a thought.

Unfortunately, no. It won't work 'cuz it's lacking the authorization serial tidbits.
Found a hard copy version on eBay that works good though. Best mac audio editor if you use old samplers or early DigiDesign cards IMHO.

No, its OK. It's right application, but minimal version.
I made adds: full 3.0 version and 3.0.1 update.

I use this a lot with my Ensoniq EPS16+, it does scsi transfers AND sample manipulation in the EPS16+! wow, that is some coding.
