Cameleon 5000 Version 1.6 Released

September 9, 2005

The update comes with an extra 200 presets, for a total of 800, as well as new harmonic and noise profiles.

Camel Audio has also released two new sound banks - TC Blue Space by Tim Conrardy is a collection of pads and textures that take advantage of Cameleons new capabilities. Kriminology by Kriminal is a collection of basses, leads and pads.

There's also a new tutorial to their website entitled 'Phattening your Cameleon' which includes many tips from top preset designers - together with Cameleons new features it will help you to get a thicker sound from Cameleon. The update and new sound banks are all free to registered users, who will be provided with the update via email.
