Alkimiya is our premier Kymorphia Instrument editor and software synthesizer suite. This advanced yet intuitive application provides a dynamic synthesis model for music instrument and sound effect design using vector curves. This powerful architecture offers unprecedented flexibility limited only by your PC's resources.

Alkimiya comes in three different editions: Demo Edition, Community Edition, and Power Edition. The Demo and Community Editions are free to use but are significantly feature limited. The Demo Edition is available for Windows and Mac OSX (soon!) users, but lacks instrument save support. The Community Edition is available for Linux only, and has instrument save support as a thank you to the free software community which has made this software possible.

To make full use of Alkimiya, we highly recommend purchasing the Power Edition. Not only does this help support our product development, you will also gain many advanced features, including: unlimited CPU cores, higher quality 64 bit floating point synthesis, up to 8 channel surround sound synthesis, audio sample rates greater than 48 KHz, and more! Purchasing a license for the Power Edition will give you access to installers for all supported operating systems, which you can download at any time, and free updates within the same version series.
