After many years of development, Spectrasonics presents their flagship virtual instrument Omnisphere. This revolutionary Power Synth breaks sonic ground by combining a wide variety of hybrid real time synthesis techniques, a vast library of remarkable Psychoacoustic sounds, and many innovative features that have never been seen before in any hardware or software synthesizer. It is the first to be based on Spectrasonics STEAM Engine.

Although extremely powerful, Omnisphere is designed with a unique user interface containing progressive layers of zooming to accommodate the complete range of users - from musicians who just want to be inspired by the sounds and customize them in an easy way, to expert synthesists and the most advanced sound designers. Users can go deeper and deeper into the music software and progress in their synthesis knowledge by simply exploring additional levels of sound manipulation options.

Omnisphere offers a host of hybrid synthesis and control capabilities including Variable Waveshaping DSP synthesis, Granular synthesis, Timbre Shifting, FM, polyphonic Ring Modulation, high-resolution streaming Sample Playback, Harmonia Dual Multimode Filter structure, Chaos Envelopes an advanced Unison mode, and the innovative Flex-Mod modulation routing system - to name a few.

Spectrasonics has pioneered several types of sampling for the core library of this virtual instrument, including unique Psychoacoustic sounds and sound sources created with a Composite Morphing Technique (CMT) - which morphs the harmonic characteristics of one instrument to another. As a bonus, a section of the core library is also devoted to representing the best of Spectrasonics award-winning sample libraries. When all of these organic core library soundsources are combined with the synthesis power of the STEAM engine, the sounds become alive in a truly dynamic and expressive way.

Among the many unique features this multi-timbral synth offers are its flexible arpeggiators with the innovative Groove Lock integration with Stylus RMX - allowing the arpeggiator pattern to instantly groove with the feel of the RMX drum loop; Live Mode for transitionless patch switching and layering, Stack Mode for powerful performance mapping; and integrated modulatable FX Racks.

Omnisphere is also the successor to Spectrasonics popular Atmosphere instrument, and contains enhanced versions of all the classic Atmosphere sounds. However, the core library in Omnisphere is 10-times the size of Atmosphere and features thousands of completely different sounds.

Spectrasonics Omnisphere is cross-platform compatible with Apple Macintosh OS X 10.4 and higher as a native Universal Binary and also with Microsoft Windows XP/Vista.

Audio Units, VST, and RTAS plug-in formats are supported for compatibility with all major host software.
