I Just watched through the video, he is such a good frontman. He made me want to buy Omnisphere and I already have it!

Just imagine a workstation that natively runs omnisphere/keyscape, touch screen for editing along with a load of endless encoders and buttons each with a little screen and a paging system like used on the Nord G2, just add a nice sequencer.

I wonder how that would effect other companies workstation sales?


That seems to be the obvious next step. I am not sure Omnisphere is in the hardware business. Still, it wouldn't be a total surprise if they have a in house concept.

No one has asked, Kronos and Roland FA W/s' have little to nothing in the way of specifically laid out and labeled synth function controls, so there's basically nothing there to integrate with 2.5.

FA basically only gives us 6 knobs, the Korg 9 sliders

They don't give you an analog-type control experience in the first place, and we are not going to get one by adding Omnisphere.

Hardware from spectrasonics won’t happen, they recently commented on this question posed on you tube after release of 2.5. Spectrasonics specifically made this comment.

I don’t believe I need Kronos any more...or any of their other inferior products.

As stated by others in this thread Korg took the DJ route, and mini crap hardware policy.

Well I got no issues with your mini crap but it should of ran parallel with Pro Keyboard production release but it didn’t, you just kept releasing mini this and mini that making you insignificant along with your useless colourless tuners.

So you started in 1964...where are you 55 years later? Lagging behind a 10 year old company.

The guy in that video seems to have missed out on one of the best new features, Omnisphere can now run with each layer sharing the filter and envelopes.

So for the sort of sound he designs you just need to set "Signal Path" to "Shared" in the Main tab then you don't need to mess around with linking layers when you edit. In this new mode Omnisphere works more like you would expect from a normal synth, the oscillators are summed before a single dual filter and the Envelopes are shared between all voices.

I think he does do that.

Not that I noticed, he just links the filters rather than using the new shared signal path.

Edit: just checked, he doesn't use this new feature. When it is turned on the leds under the layers turn orange/yellow, also any module that is shared has the name underlined in orange/yellow.

Best soft synth got even better. Spectrasonics are awesome.

They need to turn the Kronos into the power of Omnisphere plus more...

Interesting video re Omnisphere from Sonicstate

Goes over much of the basic ideas in release 2.5
