Downloaded and installed and going thru them now.
You have mapped not only velocity, but modwheel and aftertouch and one other parameter (user cc) that the user can choose......volumes are consistent...
I am loving this bank..
I can't stop gushing.....it really really is a performance patch bank.....beggging to be modulated in real time.... a few months ago I mapped my modwheel to a guitar volume pedal (cause well I play guitar and when I am playing guitar I use pedals, wah wah etc and I figured why not try it on keyboard too as my two hands are usually occupied.... has made significant difference in my playing) and playing with this and using modwheel and aftertouch and usercc (which I have mapped to my touch strip on NI KK 61Mk2.... really loving it..

Truly one of the most unusual sounding Omnisphere bank I own....

If I have one criticism is I think the pads and string sections would have been mapped in textures playable, some even in textures soundscapes by spectrasonics.... (except Fossil Skull, maybe Glamour, maybe Karaja, Lluvia Misteriosa, Naturia, maybe Sine Nebula and Volatile Memory)

Great job Sami.
thanks

Hi Richard,

Thank you so much for the kind words !

Really appreciated. :hug:

About the classification of the sounds, I totally understand your feeling about the pads/strings sections. It is not so easy to find the good category for a sound and I've changed my mind a lot of times. When a pad becomes a texture playable or a soundscape ? It's a nice discussion to have.

For me, I see 3 points of view or angles: the note, the timbre or the origin, the soundsource, of the sound. Depending on your 'hat', one is more important than the others. For example, as a composer or sound designer, chances are that the timbre is what you're looking for, before anything else. As a musician, it will probably be more something like: do I play a huge chord, or just one note in the background ?
And, at last, soundsources are clearly the backbone of the classification of Spectrasonics. Not the obvious approach when you compose, to me.

My approach was, roughly :
If you can play 3 or 4 notes and hear them all, it's a pad. For example, alternating C and Cm should be obvious.
If more than one note is quickly a mess and alternating, for example, a C chord and C minor chord is not obvious, but you can still hear a note that will be useful or clash with a melody or a lead, it's a Texture Playable.
All the others are soundscapes. Depending on the soundsources or the way the patch is built, it goes in Electronic Mayem or Noisescape or anything else...

Not ideal but keeping in mind that a simple drag'n'drop in the user folder is pretty easy to do, I've chosen to not overthink this dilemma... :oops:

Thanks again for the feedback! :party:

Cheers

Sami

Most welcome it sounds great .

I take my references from the factory bank.
To my ears it sounds like simpler things without too much textures or movement Eric et. al. classify as Pads,
more complex textures and movements are Textures Playable. If it has textures and/or lots of movement and you pretty atonal I hear them as Textures Soundscapes.
Would be nice if one day Spectrasonics writes a brief on their intention of each category.

Either way if it bothers me I can always move them on my computer.
thanks again.
