Major Arpeggiator Update
Omnisphere’s Arpeggiator gets a major update in v2.6 with brand new creative tools, making it one of the most flexible arpeggiators ever. The many innovations include new Pattern Modes, Step Dividers, Pitch Slides and the ability to alter Chord Voicings and Chord Inversions per step.
Also included is a new Arpeggiator Preset Library showcasing all the creative possibilities. In addition, Omnisphere 2.6 now captures the MIDI data of the arpeggiator as a standard MIDI file, which can be dragged to any DAW for further editing.
Expanded Hardware Synth Integration
Omnisphere’s unique and innovative Hardware Synth Integration bridges the physical experience gap for the user between software and hardware, offering 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 65 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.
Omnisphere 2.6 features an “Hardware Library” boasting 600 new patches created by Eric Persing and the acclaimed Spectrasonics Sound Development team. Notably, the update takes Eric’s original sound design work from the classic 1987 Roland D-50 into new sonic territory with Omnisphere’s vast synthesis capabilities.
