it's a general synth with sounds from different genres of music. It's got
rock and acoustic guitars, some pianos, strings, woodwinds, brasses, basses,
synths, etc.

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?
