ILIO has released Hardwired, a new patch library for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2.1 from Jesse Scott of Summer Channel and Kris Northern (Magpie Modular) which they say is "showcasing the cutting edge of modular synthesis".
In Hardwired you'll find over 100 patches made up of the best of both the analog and digital worlds. Encapsulated within this library are foreboding cinematic drones, lush and perpetually evolving, as well as texturally intriguing sound beds, quirky effects, gnashing leads, twisted and utterly mangled aural soundscapes, crazy one-shot hits, as well as BPM-locked rhythmic effects and arpeggiations.
Unique Modular Sound Sources Combined with Omnisphere's Advanced Synthesis Techniques.
Centric to "Hardwired" is over 370 MB of new, never released source material derived from "some of the most cutting edge modular synth technology available on the market". Every sample was recorded at 48 kHz and 24-bits and processed for maximum sound quality. And much like the source material, many of these Omnisphere patches were programmed using multiple random timing sources so that you never get the same exact sound twice. This ensures that you'll always come up with new and unique ideas for your compositions, and that Hardwired doesn't become stale and obsolete over time.
"It's funny, every time I do one of these Omnisphere 2 libraries, the one I just finished becomes my new personal favorite. This time though, I'm absolutely floored at some of the sounds we came up with. I don't think I can ever go back to not using modular synthesis for the basis of all my sound design. I can see what the magical allure is, " says Jesse Scott.
Hardwired loads quickly and easily into Omnisphere 2.1 or higher. Each sound is optimized for use with your modulation wheel for real time control on stage or in the studio.
Hardwired contains over 100 patches including:
- 27 Textural/Sound Beds.
- 20 Sound Effects.
- 12 Cinematic Drones.
- 14 BPM Locked Movers/Arpeggiations.
- 10 Hits.

Hardwired can be purchased and downloaded from ILIO or any number of participating online retailers for $35.
