One cannot underestimate the influence that Eric Persing has had on the area of sound design and virtual synthesis. His range of instruments and sounds have inspired a generation of writers, producers and composers. Omnisphere is probably the top of the heap in those terms, and as we know after a long period of waiting Omisphere 2 is now out.

On the face of it, Omnisphere can be seen as a massive preset browsing machine with thousands of sounds created by top designers, but inside is a massively powerful synthesis and sample manipulation engine which has become more visible and accessible in version 2.0 encouraging the user to get stuck in and tweak.
