In Stock!

Every Sound You Can Imagine and More!

For years, Omnisphere has been a staple virtual instrument for songwriters and composers ranging from EDM to cinematic scoring, but Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 totally ups the ante. Loaded with over 10,000 phenomenal sounds, plus dozens of jaw-dropping effects and more ways to create original sounds than you can imagine, Omnisphere 2 instantly grabbed the attention of the electronic musicians and serious synth nuts here at Sweetwater. And to go with its vastly expanded capabilities is a user interface that will put the sounds you want and the tools you need to tweak them in your hands faster than ever before.

Note: This is a special upgrade offer for registered owners of Omnisphere 1.x. For more information about this offer, please contact your Sweetwater Sales Engineer.

Over 10,000 amazing sounds to get you started

Forget about starting from scratch or even investing a whole lot of time into tweaking your sounds - if you just want to be able to call up a patch and create music, then Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 has you covered. We're talking about a killer sound library with 10,000 patches organized in such a way that you can quickly find the kind of sound you're looking for. Then you also have all kinds of unique and specialized sounds to look forward to, including a library of exciting EDM patches, exclusive Soundsources from Diego Stocco's custom built instruments, circuit-bent tones, and psychoacoustic effects. Spectrasonics even went so far as to sample the melodic sound of the stalactites hanging in a radioactive cave in eastern Europe, just to give Omnisphere 2 an edge. You just can't make this sort of thing up.

Synthesis tools let you create any sound you can imagine

What if you want to dive in? In that case, hang on to your hat! Whether it's Omnisphere 2's audio import function, which lets you use your own audio as oscillator sources, or 400 new morphing-wavetable-based DSP waveforms for the Synth Oscillator (that's 100 x the number in Omnisphere), there's no denying the sheer sound-shaping power this virtual instrument has to offer. There's a totally new granular synthesis engine onboard, too, plus seriously upgraded FM/ring mod, filter, unison, arpeggiation, and modulation options, all of which let you create cooler sounds than ever. Even if you're not a synthesis guru, the ability to borrow effects, arpeggiator, and other settings from one patch to the next is golden.

Enhance your sounds with loads of killer effects

There's another great way to tweak your tones in Omnisphere 2: effects . . . tons and tons of effects, to be specific. For starters, Omnisphere 2 adds an additional 25 FX Units to the already impressive collection in the original Omnisphere, and it raises the total number of effects from 12 to 16. Many of the new FX Units, such as the Hi-wattage and Metalzone Distortion, are modeled after guitar amplifiers and stompbox effects, but there are also cool and freaky effects, like the Solina Ensemble, and a complete suite of analog modeling processors to choose from. What's more, each FX Slot supports matrix modulation, and there are hundreds of new FX Presets and Racks to play with.

  • An extremely powerful and fully loaded synthesis virtual instrument
  • Intuitive user interface and browser make finding and tweaking sounds easy

Omnisphere 2 Upgrade is Fantastic!

I have been saving up for this upgrade for quite awhile and finally ordered it. It came in the mail from Sweetwater and the package contains the Upgrade Code from Spectrasonics. I love Sweetwater and I am blown away by the quality and magnitude of the sounds within Omnisphere! Regarding my order at Sweetwater, once again Aaron Tremain did a great job answering my questions about this upgrade and in processing my order. Aaron always goes the extra steps to make sure my orders are processed fast and correctly. And when Aaron is off for a day, others at Sweetwater step in to help me. a great company and prices! Omnisphere is the best virtual synth in my opinion. If you don't have it - just jump in and buy it. You will be amazed.

Omnisphere Rocks!!!

I have used Omnisphere (and Trilian) for 5 years. I am still learning new things I never new about it's capabilities as it is readily accessible to the beginner while still remaining a deep, super powerful synth for more serious synth patch creators / programmers. I just use the stock patches as there are so many. To me, there can never be too many sounds. Now, with v2 they are gonna be easier to find. Stunning world class quality sound sure to jazz up any bland song mix with some fast creative touches.

Awesome Plugin

Omnisphere 1 was the best investment I have made in a long time. Version 2 just builds on that experience and considering that I was eligible to receive Version II for free when it was released made the initial purchase a no-brainer. Everything about Version 2 from the patches to the improved user friendly interface has the WOW factor. You'll need to watch the tutorials to unplug the full potential of this plugin but suffice it to say it's extremely powerful. Kudos to Spectrasonics! I would also rate Spectrasonics customer service a 5.0 as well. They're great, attentive people to deal with. As for Sweetwater's Technical Support on a scale of 0-5.0 I'd rate them a 10.0. Yep. they're that good.

Just awesome

A must for almost every project - Artist / TV / Feature films ... I'm always using this.
