Omnisphere 2.6

Major Arpeggiator Update
Omnisphere’s renowned Arpeggiator has been greatly enhanced with all new creative tools, a brand new preset library and much more. The musical possibilities are vastly expanded, making it one of the most flexible arpeggiators ever, while still being fun to use. Best of all, Omnisphere 2.6 can now capture the MIDI data of what the arpeggiator is doing as a standard MIDI file, which can be dragged to any DAW for further editing!

Expanded Hardware Synth Integration
Omnisphere’s unique Hardware Synth Integration feature bridges the physical experience gap between software and hardware, giving users intuitive control of Omnisphere by using the familiar layout of their hardware synth. With the new 2.6 release, many requested hardware synth profiles have been added, including support for over 60 popular hardware synthesizers from Moog®, Sequential®, Roland®, Korg®, Novation®, Nord®, Behringer®, Access®, Studiologic® and Yamaha®. The supported hardware synths cover a wide array of form factors and price ranges for different types of users.

New Sounds
Omnisphere 2.6 features a newly expanded “Hardware Library” with hundreds of new patches created by Eric Persing and our renowned Sound Development team. Notably, this update takes Eric’s classic sound design work from the original 1987 Roland D-50 into completely new sonic territory with Omnisphere’s vast synthesis capabilities.

Spectrasonics is pricey but the sampling work and patch creation plus this kind of continued support is what makes it worth it. Even if you need to invest in horsepower to run it.

Are they actually calling it "Odyssey"? I smell a cease-and-desist order looming large.

I mean, yeah, it's a clone, no bones about it, but still...how about "Ody"?

I'd feel slightly less icky buying one if it had a different name, but that's just me. Doesn't mean I don't want one.

The Kurzweil Forte v4 update announced this morning is looking intriguing. I can’t wait to see more details, but so far:

The 6-op FM appears to be implemented as a 2-block DSP algorithm, which suggests that it can be chained with everything else VAST has to offer. Filters, shapers, etc. It has it’s own DSP-based envelope generators and LFO so they’re not subject to the usual limitations and can reportedly be as snappy as you’d expect from an FM synth. All very welcome and intriguing.

The 16-track CC step sequencer looks well implemented with all the expected clock synchronization goodies. It should complement the existing arpeggiator nicely.

There’s a new “Boxcar” 1-block DSP operator that takes two inputs. I’ve seen no details other than a single screen shot showing the FM routed both through and around a SW+SHP block, with the two outputs feeding the new BOXCAR block. Details are presumably forthcoming.

Oh, and the FM operator is listed as a “+” block, suggesting that it can be trivially blended with samples or other DSP oscillators while preserving 128-note polyphony (at least for simple chains.)



Acoustic: Shigeru Kawai SK-7 ~ Breedlove C2/R
MIDI: Kurzweil Forte ~ Sequential Prophet X ~ Roland TD11KV
Electric: Schecter Solo Custom Exotic ~ Chapman MLB1 Signature Bass

No, but Korg is, having bought the rights, schematics, IP, etc., no?

Or did I miss the sarcasm emoji?

Didn't realize Korg actually bought the rights. Figured they were just doing a reissue same as Behringer.

Not 100% positive, but was under the impression, or read something here or elsewhere, that that was the case. Wouldn't be the first, or last, time I'm wrong...

I'm sure someone here has the skinny, and will set the record straight.

Besides the awesome update coming to Spectrasonics. What if spectrasonics also released a controller?

Native Instruments announced a new free production suite, Komplete Start, a selection of studio-quality instruments, effects, utilities, loops, and samples—over 2,000 customizable sounds—drums and percussion, bass, acoustic instruments, synths, pads and atmospheres, effects, and more.



Komplete Kontrol has been updated to version 2.1. The big new feature is that it now works with any hardware:

Originally Posted By: Native Instruments
