The massively hyped new software synth from Eric Persing’s Spectrasonics has been released. It’s called Omnisphere and I like that it’s a hybrid sample and/or synth machine. In fact this baby comes with over 40GB of content. I want to spend a weekend creating a song “limiting” myself to only Omnisphere. I would maybe even use just one instance (it’s 8 part multitimbral).
“After many years of development, Spectrasonics is proud to release the brand new flagship virtual instrument Omnisphere. This epic ‘Power Synth’ breaks completely new sonic ground by combining a wide variety of hybrid realtime synthesis techniques, an epic library of remarkable ‘Psychoacoustic’ sounds, and many innovative features that have never been seen before in any hardware or software synthesizer. The new instrument is the first to be based on Spectrasonics newly developed STEAM Engine.” – spectrasonics.net
The first thing you should do is head over to Spectrasonics and watch the awesome 7 part video episodes they have online. Then prepare to depart with $499/€379!
Most of us have a good stock of software and hardware sound sources. Do you think Omnisphere offers something new?
