Means if you upgrade from X to X +1 you can't then sell X, you'd have to sell X + 1 no?
That's what I would imagine, but it is obvious right?

What I am understanding is that there could be two other meanings of this:

1. You simple cannot sell either version after you upgrade.
2. You can resell the upgrade license if you want to and retain the base version.

Perhaps best to write an email to Spectrasonics. I will.

I also don't see anyone resenting the cult "fans" of Omni.

My take too. Absolutely no harm in clarifying though. LoveEnigma - their support is very good (except, ironically when it comes to actually selling licenses so I understand)

Yes, I have sent them an email to clarify this. It is not very clear to me. I will post here once they reply.

Hopefully there won't be a need to resell, and if there is, I already had a conversation with them in the past in this regard and they replied to me that as long as you are the original license owner they will allow license transfer for any reason. May be a bit miffed with transfers, but who cares.

A question for Omnisphere 2 and FL Studio users...

How do the parameters look like in the FL Studio browser when you click "Browse parameters..." from the plugin's wrapper menu?
Could anyone please help with this information?

We are mainly combining Omni and Diva, with some added stuff from some other synths. Works perfectly for us.
Why do you need Diva if you have Omni? Omni has the Juicy filters, have you tried those?
Diva has its own characteric sound and possibilities. More like analog and Omni is more like fantasy rompler-workstation with analog alike possibilities. Both are excellent.

https://www.tampereenmusiikki.fi/fin/sp ... p-76449-88 here Omni is 399€ and you can get it -40€ if you input OMNIALE. Now I do not know if they 'ship' to everywhere, but I bought mine originally from there and it was even cheaper back then, I think something like 299€. It was a timed exclusive or such.

Can't you just replace Diva in that sentence with any synth though? Are you saying is that you don't think that Omnisphere can replace Diva? Why not?

As if this thread needs another opinion, I really like Omnisphere for its library of "organic" samples but as an actual synth I find the interface dated/inefficient and would much rather design patches in Diva, Vital, Serum, etc.

I think it's totally fine to make suggestions, a la "check out these filters in Omni, some of them have similar appeal to Diva". This tone of "you must justify your choices if you're not using my favorite synth for everything" is rude, though.

Thank you. I will check if this is a cheaper and possible option. :)

Yes, I did read them, but it's not fully clear about upgrades and reselling. I have sent them a query anyway, let's see. Thanks though.

No I find Diva to be the highest quality 'analog' VI and it has different tones in it. We went through a lot of different options before coming to these two as main synths.
