To me it kind of sounds like the words "shock" and "machine" and a few times saying either FCE or SCE.

Omnisphere 3. Will work as a player for the other products (which it already does).
AMAZING! SOLD!

I don't usually get interested in these teaser videos, but hell it's Spectrasonics - product launches are rarer than dogs successfully landing commercial airliners.

I'm betting against Omni 3. I'm gonna go with the start of a completely new range of themed things - the whispers say horror to me more than choir.

It's more than 1 new product...
So probably sound packs or expanders for Omni...!

I know that spectrasonics almost never does sales, but do they ever have any intro prices when launching new products?

I don't think so- nothing spectacular if they do- No Arturia/NI/IK- 50-80% off type sales!

The fact that they never have sales is why the software keeps its vale, so if you ever do need to sell it you won't loose much...

Maybe they made the granular bit of omnisphere into an effect? Or it's a vocal library.

I's says it's not what we're expecting. Hmmmm.... what are we not expecting... Faster second hand transfers? Super fast preset loading times in Omnisphere?

Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

I predict it will be Quadrilian. Four deeply sampled and professionally sound-designed basses: acoustic, electric, synth, and washtub.

Yes, every company has their own sales model and tactics and I can see the value in Spectrasonics not offering their stuff for dirt cheap or doing much sales.

If I bought Omnisphere for $400 or whatever it costs, then I wouldn't be happy if I saw it for half price a few months later.

I say this in about every Spectrasonics thread but it bears repeating: if you're in the US or otherwise can order from Musiciansfriend/Guitar Center, they do somewhat frequent 20% off coupons and those coupons work on Spectrasonics products. That's how I got Omni and Keyscape. With products that expensive, 20% really helps.
