OMNISPHERE - What is Hardware Synth Integration?


collapse expand iconDescription

Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 is the award-winning software synthesizer relied upon by top artists around the world as an essential source of sonic inspiration. This upgrade to the flagship Omnisphere synth fuses many types of synthesis together into one instrument for a lifetime of exploration.

Hardware Synth Integration Unlocks New Capabilities

Omnisphere 2 is the only software synth to offer Hardware Synth Integration, which transforms over 65 hardware synthesizers into hands-on controllers to unlock Omnisphere's expanded synthesis features. This groundbreaking innovation makes using Omnisphere 2 feel like using a real hardware synth. Bridging the gap between software and hardware provides intuitive control of Omnisphere 2 using familiar hardware synth layouts. Virtual instrument users can now experience the joy of hardware synths, while hardware synth users gain access to Omnisphere's vast sonic world.

Vast New Synthesis Options for Limitless Sound Design

Omnisphere 2 provides a vast array of new synthesis possibilities, including importing your own audio as a sound source for limitless possibilities using your sample library. The Granular Synthesis algorithm can completely transform included content or your own audio into unimaginable soundscapes. Change a smooth jazz recording into an ethereal soundscape or a blazing synth lead with a few tweaks.

Over 10,000 Sounds to Inspire Your Creativity

Omnisphere 2 contains over 10,000 sounds to ignite your inspiration, including 3,000+ new patches and Soundsources from Spectrasonics' renowned sound design team. New libraries include cutting-edge EDM sounds, Diego Stocco's custom instruments, phrase-based Soundsources for granular synthesis, hundreds of circuit-bent Soundsources, innovative psychoacoustic Soundsources, and cave stalactite Soundsources.

Updated Interface and Enhanced Browsing for Intuitive Use

Omnisphere 2 features an updated interface with a wider layout, modulation pane to show routings, and always-on Mini-Browser. Enhanced browsing makes finding the right sound fast and easy. Sound Match instantly locates related sounds. Sound Lock locks an attribute like an arpeggiator pattern or effects rack and applies it to other sounds, enabling endless customized variations.
