[ddots-l] Re: Omnisphere sounds

The only thing I do with it is use the sounds. You don't have access to any 
parameters, and even for sounds, you need sighted help to copy the presets into 
sonar and save them. Otherwise, you can't access them. I feel that unless you 
use a synth like Vienna, hardware boards are still the best sounding for 
strings, brasses, and woodwinds. I know that's not what we'd like to 
acknowledge, and I know that we'd all like to get into as much softsynths as 
possible, but honestly, I haven't heard anything satisfactory in the realm of 
virtual that can match a hardware synth like the motif or a roland synth for 
the instruments I mentioned above, except for the Vienna stuff.

  I'm assuming you've got this synth? How much of it can you access with jaws?

  I think he meant the 1gb free one from eastwest. colossis is definitely not a 
loser. it's great.

    Colossis is the loser? If so, why?

      Hey does anybody remember that free synth that east west was giving out, 
it was about 1gb or so download, was it that colossis?

      Bryan,

      I personally wouldn't recommend either atmosphere or omnisphere for 
great, natural-sounding, woodwind, string, brass, or other natural instruments. 
I would label them as average at best. Just my opinion, though. A better synth 
for that kind of stuff is EastWest's colossis. The only drawback to that is 
that you need sighted help to copy and paste the presets into sonar. Otherwise, 
it isn't accessible.

        All of you people using Omnisphere, what is your opinion of the sound 
quality in terms of bread and butter sounds? All of the demos that I've found 
are full of amazingly pulsing, throbbing, morphing, arpeggiating, swirling 
textures and synth tambers. That sounds great for creating atmospherics, or for 
scoring television action shows. However, how well does Omnisphere serve as a 
general purpose go-to instrument? For example, I have lots of plugs if I want 
drums, pianos, electric pianos, guitars, and synths. However, when the odd 
situation comes up, and I need a sax, a ukulele, a harpsichord, or a sitar, I 
need a general purpose synth to go to. I've used various things for that over 
the years, but I'm now in a spot where the old stuff like Hypersonic isn't 
available anymore on Win 7, and I'm trying not to use hardware synths anymore, 
so can't just track in something from one of those.

        So, how do you rate it for general purpose sounds?

        Bryan
