    Omnisphere released!
    Spectrasonic's impressive flagship Synth sequel to Atmosphere, Omnisphere, is finally out in the wild. [url]http://www.spectrasonics.net/instruments/omnisphere.html[/url] Upgrade price structure for existing Atmosphere users is very reasonable (but you may need to purchase a new HD to fit the 40+ GB of content!)

    Your mac meets the minimum specs... will keep an eye out for other G5 users experiences and post it here. I've ordered Omnisphere and am overwhelmed already, even though I haven't received it yet! :-)

    Re: Omnisphere released!
    OK... Omnisphere took about 35-40 mins per disc (there are 6 discs) to install. Authorization in true Spectrasonics style was painless... downloaded updates (but no tutorial videos online yet). I've not had long to play with it, but it sounds amazing! Briefly looked at the Edit window and there appear to be 6 LFO's!! It's fully multi-timbral and each channel can combine 2 patches... = 16 patches in one Omnisphere plug-in. Some of the sounds are delicious :-) and I really appreciate having "the best of" spectraonsics libraries. So far, so amazing! Rounik

    Re: Omnisphere released!
    I installed omnisphere the other day and it took about 20-25mins per disk for some reason (which seems good compared to what i've heard). I've only got a g5 2.3 ghz 4.5 gig RAM. It seems to be running fine but bit of a cpu hog with my specs, but it's better than I thought. The sounds are awesome :)

    Re: Omnisphere released!
    Hi Futant, Yes, I find it quite cpu hungry too. Can get about 4-5 patches running in muli-timral mode with about 2 instances of RMX and I get issues. The sounds are amazing... I'm waiting on the video tutorials and the updated patches (as the pad patches are a bit sparse at the moment) - well, this is fine as Spectrasonics are planning on releasing patches through updates anyway... Having said that, the synthesis side in Omnisphere is more powerful than I realised, and the ability to save various LOF settings apart from the Envelope or Filter settings is great... not to mention the Arp!! It's almost a bit too Omni-whelming... ;-)
