    This is the kind of video report I really like to watch.

    Hearing how it sounds, not hearing a man saying "well, it has 6 oscillators and 3 analog-modeled filters blabla...".

    Great video !

    Wow. This thing really does have some fantastic sounds. I only wish the price were cheaper and I might actually buy it.

    Gotta agree with Jay Key. I love hearing the sonic capabilities of the products rather than have the spec sheets reciting to me. No fault of SonicState though!

    Amazing what stereo can do to a sound isn't it?

    I might look into Omnisphere...

    Guess that means it's a good demo. :)

    Sounds great, i missed out on Atmosphere a while back (should have picked it up), Definatley gonna get this one. Any one know the size of the install, looks like it could be big?

    I think its somewhere in the region of 50GB

    Actually, I dont know how much the additional free library is, but I guess it must be more...

    It's a free update - there's no new sample content, they're just adding more patches that use the existing sample content. (Actually, he mentions that it's free at the very end of the vid).

    23-Jan-09 09:05 PM

    phraggle    Said...

    Oh crap, sorry - misunderstood. The size of the update? Probably relatively small - the original install for Omnisphere is approx 35 GB if I recall correctly. I know it took me about 5 hours to install it on my old P4 3.4GHz machine... :-(

    I was about to earmark it for potential purchase, but then i had a read of spectrasonics' terms and conditions regarding useage etc. As a scorer and producer, im a bit confused by some of the stuff in there, such as its fine to use in projects, provided the projects are sold to non musicians, no multitrack distribution etc. There's some strange stuff on remixing as well...interesting.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned about the terms of use. Spectrasonics policy is actually far more generous than most in terms of usage and broad rights - which is why these instruments are so widely used in thousands of productions by the top professional composers and remixers around. Take a look a few of Spectrasonics users:


    I would suggest that if you have specific questions or concerns about a particular type of usage, contact Spectrasonics directly to find out the info:


    I think you'll find that most types of use are no problem at all.

    Wanna hear something that really misses the point..!

    Great demo. I like the sounds which are real-sounding and I like the purely synthesized sounds - but I think they just sound tacky mixed together. Not all of them, just the ones which aren't clearly one or the other. I'm probably the only person on the planet who thinks this and it's coming from someone who hasn't actually played it himself.

    You can't deny that there's some exciting and original sampling at large on Omnisphere. I wish a multi-sample libraries of all the unusual bespoke instruments and recording techniques were available; as do I wish the "steam engine" without sample integration could be bought separately (and cheaply) with all the effects. I also wish I was a bit thinner and weekends could be a bit longer.
