The Problem

I want to move the Alchemy samples and presets to a different location on my computer.

Quick Fix

  1. The Alchemy data folder is always located here:

  2. /Library/Application Support/Camel Audio/Alchemy

  3. Move the Alchemy folder to a new location, or delete the alias
  4. Run the installer for Alchemy
  5. When asked for the location of the Alchemy data folder browse for the new location
  6. Select the Alchemy data folder and let the installer finish

Win

  1. Create a folder named Alchemy in the new location
  2. Locate the existing Alchemy data folder on your system:

  3. Start Menu > All Programs > Camel Audio > Alchemy > Alchemy Data

  4. Move only the following sub-folders and file to the new Alchemy folder:

    • Libraries
    • Presets
    • Samples
    • Skins
    • MidiMap.txt
  5. Create an instance of Alchemy in an empty host project
  6. When prompted browse for and choose the new Alchemy folder
