MESSE09: Spectrasonics Omnisphere Wins 2009 MIPA Award


At the 10th annual Musikmesse International Press Awards, Spectrasonics' Omnisphere was voted the 'Best Software Instrument' of 2009. The prestigious MIPA awards are chosen by the editors of over 100 music industry magazines from more than a dozen countries. The MIPA has come to be considered the "Grammy" of the musical instrument/pro audio industry.
Eric Persing, Founder and Creative Director of Spectrasonics, had this to say, "Our whole team worked incredibly hard for 6 years to create this instrument – from the architects of the software and user interface, to our international team of sound designers that went to some crazy lengths to create new sounds. Thanks!"
