ILIO and sound designer MIDIhead have announced Minimal, a new collection of patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere. They say that this collection is crafted with just enough character to enliven your mix without extra fluff or frequency bloat. A spokesperson told us, "While other patch libraries capitalize on Omnisphere's ability to steal the show with its sonic fireworks, Minimal takes advantage of Omnisphere's more aesthetic side. When you need sounds that can inspire melodies, add subtle movement, or provide a solid foundation, Minimal delivers across multiple genres."
Here's the details direct from ILIO...
Minimal comes with an assortment of snappy and punchy basses, beautifully tranquil pads, analog-sounding poly synths, exclusive vocal snippets, and a plethora of plucks that are programmed using Omnisphere's Arpeggiator, should users choose to engage it, plus a handful of BPM-locked synths to help add motion. The patches in Minimal transcend styles and lend themselves to a wide variety of compositional applications like pop, rock, hip-hop, ambient, electronic/dance, or scoring a film.
Every patch is designed with simplicity and functionality in mind, with crafted DSP waveforms, and carefully selected filters, modulation, and effects, all programmed to fit like a glove in a mix. Further, Minimal employs Omnisphere's Custom User MIDI Control that lets users minimize the effects on each patch, such as reverb and delay, using their own assigned custom control.
Every patch includes modulation wheel assignments for more expressive control. And with 114 patches included, Minimal will give users enough flow to keep you inspired for many music projects to come.
