ghetto - damn I can't help myself. What IS that post exactly? Is it the "hey, we've had a lot of differences of opinion, but we can all rally round a shot of a sexy woman" thing? Is it just conceivably some misplaced "humour" referring to some of Omni's filters even?

I know I'll be branded a killjoy for mentioning it, but this 1970s men's club thing is kinda pathetic.
:clap:
Thank you for speaking out - shit like that wont ever change if people just pretend it's not there.
Might be branded as killjoy by some, but you just gained a handful of extra points as far as i'm concerned

Ah thanks ghetto, that clarifies you're being a dick for everyone. Phew, glad I didn't get the wrong end of the stick.

Everyone has a reason for using a plugin, and that's fine, if people would have been the same maybe there would have been only a single plugin developer who made the best one and there was no need for something else.

Anyway, Omnisphere is one of the better plugins, and I think its price is also contributing to its appeal, as people usually place higher value on things which cost more.

:lol:
First, even Omni knows it's not omni without adding at least two more of their products to it.
Second, the price is the most asked question about it in threads (including this one.) And as I said, adding those two other products make it even more questionable.
Third, "you wanna buy a Hunter Biden painting?". ;)

It's a good synth, interesting sample libraries of both standard and out of the ordinary libraries.

Far from being a desert island synth for me though.

They should probably double the price. That would dramatically increase profits while keeping only the true believers as customers. They could then completely ditch their resale policy because nobody would ever want to sell it. That would further reduce their support costs and give people one less thing (slow response to resale requests) to complain about. I believe that's what they call a win/win!

There's an old adage in sales, if it doesn't sell, raise the price.

Most people wish they had an Audi or Mercedes and not a Chevrolet

That's what I was trying to say, comparing Omnisphere with a Mercedes, based on its price compared with other cheaper plugins
