Omnisphere has proved to be a titan among software instruments. Back in 2008, California-based developer Spectrasonics rolled all manner of sound-generation methods into a high-quality, flexible, affordable package that rapidly assumed its place on the must-have lists of many pro-sumer and professional high-tech musicians, picking up numerous awards along the way.
There’s been a number of interim updates, but the whole-number step to version 2 has been a very long time coming. Then on April 30 this year, the latest incarnation of the cross-platform, VST/AU/AAX/RTAS sound-creation engine blew socks off far and wide, even picking up a Best of Show award at this year’s Winter NAMM.
