      Colossis is the loser? If so, why?

        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?
