Plughugger Technique is the first soundset in a new series of soundsets for Omnisphere 2, where Plughugger sets the focus on one selected synthesizer, sample every aspect of it and and recreate its sound and characteristics in Omnisphere, but also take it into new directions that would never be possible with the original hardware.
First out is Technique, a soundset based on the newly released synthesizer by British synth maker Modal Electronics: The CRAFTsynth. Entirely based on DSP, the CRAFTsynth is a synth with a scope that spans from traditional subtractive synthesis and smooth FM, to massive sonic mayhem.
What really makes the CRAFTsynth stand out are two things. The unison engine and its modulation capabilities that goes into audio range, so for this soundset Plughugger recorded almost 100 new soundsources to capture every aspect of the synthesizer.
Technique contains 201 sounds in the following categories:
- 15 Bass Arpeggios/Sequences.
- 15 Lead Arpeggios/Sequences.
- 6 Drum / Percussion.
- 9 FX sounds.
- 17 Pads / Synth strings.
- 33 Bass sounds.
- 42 Synth sounds.
- 14 Textures and soundscapes.
- 50 Multi sounds.
As a bonus for all sound designers, they also included 92 ready-to-use INIT patches for all new waveforms. All new soundsources were sampled in 96 kHz for minimum aliasing artifacts.
