Omnisphere 2.5 Update Out Today And Its Free

Lots of new features, 1000 new patches      29/08/18

Back at Superbooth we had a sneak preview of  what to expect from Omnisphere 2.5  the super software synthesis instrument from Spectraspnics.

Omnisphere turns 10 years old this year, and with version 2.5 the new features are adding a lot.

The main biggie is Hardware Synth Intetegration - Hardware profiles have been created  to let you control a software version of any supported synth, which often includes custom waves and in the case of the OB6, a new OB filter type. Essentially you get direct control mapping from the hardware to Omnisphere plus additional features not found in the hardware - more LFOs for Korg Prologue, polyphony for Moog Voyager and Sub 37 - you get the idea.

1000 extra patches have been created using the hardware profiles, bringing the total to over 14,000 patches - its kind of crazy.

Eric Persing recently did a presentaion at the El Rey theatre in LA - you can watch that here, and remember Omnisphere 2.5 is a free upgrade to Omnisphere 2.0 owners.
