For those of you who have enjoyed Omnisphere, your enjoyment is about to get an upgrade.
Here’s the skinny:
3,000 new preset patches. Synthesis functionality expanded significantly; from 7 oscillators to 10, new drag and drop audio files in for granular synthesis fun, and more.
New sampled sounds include stalactites in a cave (!!) circuit bending, old cheap synths, and other interesting acoustic sources.
Waveform library expanded from 4 to 400+.
Analog drift function makes synths sound huge.
NEW EDM patch library.
Arpeggiator functionality increased. More effects available.
Improved browser organization. Including Sound Match, which locates similar patches, so if you found a sound that is close to what you want, but not quite, it will pull up similar patches for you to try. Makes finding the needle in the haystack a lot easier.
Even Spectrasonics founder Eric seems to have gotten an upgrade, he’s lost some weight or been working out. Lookin good Eric!
Also included is some convolution creativity with the Innerspace effect rack. Tic Tacs on Glass, for example. If you are familiar with the creative work of Diego Stocco, the sonic results are similar to his. In fact, Diego seems to be a contributor to the upgrades of Omni 2!
