New Omnisphere Update!!!


#1

Not sure of how many people here own it, but it is a great deep synth to invest in. They haven’t charged for an update yet. This update is very exciting.

I make 90% of my synth samples with either Omnisphere or Reaktor.

-New waveforms
-Moar Mod sources
-New GUI
-New Patches

It’s a Hoover Beast now!!! Wow

Wish I could share samples but the license restricts me from doing so


#3

Maybe it is great synth, but $499 for synth is too much i think :wacko:


#4

i think the same way to expensive i can get reason for 499 and i still have 99 plus reason’s amazing set of synths and effects


#5

it looks awesome indeed


#6

I never had any regrets paying for it. It’s not the end all be all imho however

I bought it so I can stop struggling to get that “professional quality” sound so often. It’s like the Waves plugins bundle of synths hehe…

It does a lot more than what they feature in the demo vids.

The orb with some pitch bending is insane.

Envelopes can almost reach audio frequencies, I used to design waveforms with them before they came out with the wave-tables. Envelope Depth and Speed can be modulated as well, synced, looped, etc.

Just about everything is modulatable, even arp speed and gate


#7

Reason why omnisphere is damn expensive is because of the huge sample library , and of course the eric persing pedigree


#8

The omnisphere presets are pretty impressive. But when it comes down to the pure synthesis, omnisphere seems to me a bit limited and also cluttered in workflow…? Don’t you think?


#9

It might be a huge & expensive sample library but also whats the point of running a 499 dollar vst inside a cheap 68 euros daw?

If I follow your logic …

What’s the point of renoise controlling my ( expensive ) hardware ?

So according to your logic , a daw needs to be more expensive than the instruments it hosts ?

lol


#10

i guess its a good choice for performers o which only care for the musicality and not so much for the sound design

the presets sound huge and pretty professional

but i rarely found myself using just presets to build a song


#11

Limited? Name one synth that isn’t limited in some way.

Workflow? Haven’t had a problem with it until it comes to automation but all my stuff is sample based mostly anyway. Just right click and assign modulation basically.

The sound quality saves a lot of time when it comes to mastering.


#12

More advanced/flexible seem to me:

  • UVI Falcon

  • VPS Avenger (beware of macos version’s instabilities though)

  • Zebra2

That said I find Omnisphere of course not that limiting either. It is more that it feels somehow cluttered, divided into many tabs and semi-hidden sub menus.


#13

I want that Falcon. You got it?


#14

I keep it fairly simple in Omnisphere unless I’m trying to make something inspired by Razor, Harmor, or Reaktor’s Space Drone


#15

I want that Falcon. You got it?

No, only the other two. But I know MachFive a bit and talked to Falcon users. Seems to be a good sampler, too, maybe even Kontakt replacement? I want it, too :stuck_out_tongue:
