This new library contains 100 patches and 50 effect rack presets for Omnisphere version 1.5 and later. This library still fits the Omniverse title because it still contains patches for many different musical styles (Dance, Pop, EDM, DubStep, Trap, HipHop, Downtempo, film, SFX, etc.), but this library has more of a sombre tone with an emphasis on expressive acoustic instruments with the highlight being the 3 solo Acoustic Grand/Upright Piano patches - combining Burning Piano and the Ambient Grand Piano to make a totally new and dynamic piano. John says "While these Grand Piano patches won't compete against a dedicated grand piano sample library, they do have a VERY unique sound to them that is both new and fresh".
Also in the library you will find huge synth bass patches, tons of BPM Sync'd Leads / Pads / Basses, SFX and menacing Drones as well as monster unison Unison Synth Patches. Other highlights include "Guitar + Pad" patches that show off the Han Zimmer guitars (Nylon Classical, Martin Acoustic, Steel String, Sitar, EBow and even the Lap Steel Slide Guitar) of the Omnisphere library.
Omniverse II: the Dark Hope also includes 50 Effect Rack presets which come in 2 flavors: FX racks which will totally transform a patch into sounding very different from the original or MIX racks which enhance the original sound but don't drastically change its character.
Price: $30. More info here.
