This upgrade to Omnisphere 2 Power Synth from Spectrasonics is the flagship virtual instrument that combines a wide variety of real-time synthesis techniques with a huge 64GB core sound library. To hold all of this together while providing an elegant and easy-to-use interface, the development team at Spectrasonics created the STEAM Engine.

The STEAM Engine allows the user to process already interesting core samples with an intriguing set of synthesis and effects processor, thereby transforming the core material into truly inspiring sounds. The user interface features progressive layers of zooming that can be used by a wide range of users - from musicians who just want to be inspired by the sounds and customize them in an easy way, to the most advanced sound designers.

The sounds in the core library were acquired using various techniques including a new Composite Morphing Technique (CMT) which morphs the harmonic characteristics of one instrument to another. Additionally, new sound sources have been added including Diego Stocco's custom built instruments, circuit bent instruments, granular synthesis, and melodic cave stalactites.

Eight independent arpeggiators can be used in a single multi-timbral instrument to allow for creating complete compositional sections. However, the real beauty of these arpeggiators is that they can be synchronized to the feel of any RMX drum loop via Groove Lock or any other MIDI file. This means no more conflicting rhythmic feels. Additionally, sounds can be modulated by multiple LFOs or by using advanced multi-breakpoint looping envelopes.

Note: Any customer who purchased Omnisphere after October 1, 2014 will also receive the free upgrade to Omnisphere 2.

    Omnisphere 2 - Power Synth Virtual Instrument (Upgrade) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Like Indiana Jones Been a fan since the first release of this software (Atmosphere). I love how user-friendly the interface has become -- you now have a preset pane adjacent to the synth. I've grown to work Omnisphere 1 so fast, that I slipped right into Omnisphere 2 without any qualms. Procuring the kind of 'patches' I hear in my head is easier with the new sound match feature too... And so many patches, you'll find a new fav every day. If you really want to take advantage of this release, pick up an SSD because you won't have a lifetime to go through all the patches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, solid workhorse, inspiration machine While it would have been more accurate to refer to this as dot 1.6 update, nonetheless, the added features are welcome - including ability to import and manage your own audio. There are so many presets that you will probably never run out of source material to begin your own sound design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luscious sythescapes Omnisphere 1 was an investment I have never never regretted. It is one that has kept giving back something. Omnisphere 2 continues to provide practically endless options. The new sounds and ability to import your own samples are very useful but I might have felt the top 5-10 presets fulfilled my investment. I wish I felt this way about some other musical gear I purchased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still going through the presets! The upgrade to Version 2 added a TON of great new sounds. Sound Match is AWESOME! Easy to program your own sounds and sequences. Planning to add KEYSCAPE asap Best synth ever. Definitely worth the price!
