Just wondering if you use OMNISPHERE to make your music tracks?
You better ask who doesn’t?
I don’t! it costs too much for me!
I was asking this very question on another site recently with mixed response. I am thinking it is essential as a money making tool for film/TV etc. I could make my own samples etc but this is tempting because it is so fast and easy BUT will I end up just sounding like everything else in this field and fall into the trap of highly polished film trailer mediocrity just like all the millions of hand clappy uke tracks in abundance. Also, someone commented that it uses up all the stereo field in a mix because it is so dominating. The synth engine isn’t that good either relying on samples than waveforms. The jury is out for me as I also have my ipad with loads of nice apps that add many sounds to my music. It’s a case of too much choice now. On a business bread and butter need it could be very useful. I would be interested to know if anyone is getting creative, more unique sounds created for their own use.
I’m not sure where you read that but Omnisphere is one of the best synths I have just because it has both the option to use the awesome preset library that comes with it plus the ease of use if you want to make something from scratch.
Omnisphere has both sample based and subtractive oscillators (through DSP) like most other synth. It can also do sort of FM. So it’s bull that it only has sample based oscillators.
You can make the simplest thinnest mono sound you want all the way up to massive effect drenched stereo sounds.
It’s easy to get carried away. But it can do simple sounds as well.
You won’t regret getting it. I haven’t. Sometimes you need those big sounds to compete with the rest of the guys out there. A client can ask for a very typical soundscape. Omnisphere makes that easy for you.
As you’ve probably understood by now, I love Omnisphere. Hehe.
I think it’s a great synth and has a wide variety of uses. I use it all the time.
